Sturdi-Built’s Exclusive Thermal Option for greenhouse insulation

Use our unique Thermal Option to create a more energy-efficient and insulated greenhouse.

Adds a layer of inner glazing to create a double-glazed greenhouse.

The Thermal Option may be purchased with the greenhouse or added later.

Uses either window clear acrylic, white twin wall polyethylene or a combination of these materials.

The insulating air space between the inner and outer glazing is 5/8”.

We recommend clear glass and inner clear acrylic be used for walls. For roof glazing, a combination of  twin wall polycarbonate with white twin wall polyethylene is very effective for added insulation.

Using our Twin Wall polycarbonate exterior glazing and Twin Wall polyethylene interior glazing, an R-value of over 3 is obtained—twice the insulation available with most other greenhouses.

Our Thermal Option system is designed to breathe to accommodate the high humidity levels in greenhouses.

Heat-efficient redwood construction along with our Thermal Option makes a Sturdi-Built greenhouse kit a very thermally efficient greenhouse.
