Great long-life product

The acrylic panels are very popular for retail areas or high quality greenhouses and nurseries. The greenhouse panels must be designed for snow loads on greenhouse. The greenhouse panels require special greenhouse accessories. Acrylic panel market is very large and diverse with such uses as commercial application of all types, such as skylights, partitions, roof panels, commercial awnings and windows. Acrylic life expectancy exceeds 20 years if properly maintained. Acrylic covered greenhouses promote maximum plant growth for generations. There is no finer, stronger or clearer structural sheet.

Most polycarbonate aluminum glazing systems are suitable for use with acrylic. However, each system has its benefits.

To say that we're extremely happy even thrilled with the new CYRO ALLTOPTM greenhouse acrylic sheet would be an understatement," says John R. Newland, co-owner at Newland's Flowers Limited of Leamington, Ontario. "After installing the sheeting on our latest greenhouse in September 1995, we're already seeing significant gains in terms of energy conservation, and improved plant performance."

There's plenty of growing history behind John's statement. Founded by his grandfather H.B.Newland in the late 1920s, the company started out as a multiple operation producing a wide range of vegetables, fruit and flowers. "In the mid 1960s, we more than doubled our greenhouse capacity. Today there is 100,000 square feet, all of it used for growing roses."

Even more remarkable, ALLTOP greenhouse acrylic sheet, a double-walled product, delivers up to 91% sunlight transmission in the visible range. No other double walled thermoplastic sheet matches this performance. They are so popular in greenhouses because most greenhouse crops need a lot of light.

"I'm sure one reason is that ALLTOP sheet has wide cells and therefore fewer support ribs and that lets more light in. And ALLTOP sheet produced light is much more diffused, which means it reaches more of the plant particularly among mature growth whiter shadows can be an issue."

ALLTOP sheet has another feature the Newlands are pleased about: more then 50% energy savings compared to single pane glass.

"We have environmental computers constantly monitoring temperatures along with how long the steam valves are open to heat our greenhouses. Again, comparing greenhouses that are almost exactly the same size, you can look at the computer records and see that ALLTOP sheet conserves heat far better. And as an added bonus, the ALLTOP acrylic sheet greenhouse tends to be a bit cooler in the summer, since the direct sunlight is diffused."

ALLTOP acrylic sheet's unique on line. Greenhouse NO DRIP® coating also disperses droplets of rain water and condensation in to a film. The result is an acrylic sheet that is cleaned by rain, remains transparent in a drizzle and dries more quickly than glass with minimal spotting. Even condensation remains virtually invisible.

Fire precautions:

SDP double skinned sheets are produced from molding compounds which are combustible thermoplastics. Precautions used to protect combustibles from flames and high heat sources should also be observed with these materials. SDP sheets usually burn rapidly to completion if not extinguished. The products of combustion, if sufficient air is present, are carbon dioxide and water. However, in many fires, sufficient air will not be available and toxic carbon monoxide will be formed, as it will from other common combustible materials. We urge good judgement in the end use of these versatile materials and recommend that building codes be followed carefully to assure they have been used properly. Access panels may be required for evacuation and venting of rooms glazed with SDP sheets. SDP sheets burn more rapidly than their solid counterparts. Non-combustible end caps must be used to prevent flame from contacting the open ends of SDP sheets.

Very specific installation is required on all twinwall materials because of expansion and contraction. Extrusions required, along with special closures suggested instructions available on request.
