Added protection of blocking 99.9% of harmful UV rays
From a growing perspective, polycarbonate provides a much more stable growing environment. All polycarbonate panels used in Sproutwell™ greenhouses are made from two skins of polycarbonate – creating a double-glazing effect and outstanding thermal performance (10mm far greater than 4mm or 6mm Panels).
POLYCARBONATE… WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
It’s best to avoid polycarbonate with recycled materials. Why? Our harsh sun will discolour the panels and they’ll be yellow within 18mths! They breakdown and become brittle and will crack Some Polycarbonate floating around the marketplace has little to no UV protection!
Over the years, large importing companies have sold many hobby Greenhouses that hadn’t been designed specifically for the Australian climate and majority of the polycarbonate provided were made from 80% recycled materials and only 20% new materials.

Due to Australia’s harsh weather conditions the sun has broken down these panels causing them to yellow and crack. It is therefore very important when investing in a Greenhouse to make sure you’re only purchasing polycarbonate that is made from 100% raw materials.
Peace of Mind…
Sproutwell® Greenhouses is the ONLY Australian Company to offer MICRON2™ advanced specification. This means all panels within our range 6MM, 8MM and 10MM Polycarbonate come with a 10yr Limited Warranty – Satisfaction Guranteed!
WHAT IS MICRON2? All imported Polycarbonate generally comes with a 20 micron UV protectant layer (cheaper recycled panels are known to have NO protection at all). However, the new Micron2 technology is where the outside layer (side that faces the sun) goes through a Solar grade co-extruded process using a double layer equalling 50 micron UV protectant.
Why not just protect both sides of the Panel?
Unfortunately once the sun hits the outer layer (side facing the sun) it begins a degrading process. Therefore, protecting the inside layer doesn’t offer a practical solution as the damage to the outer layer is already compromised over time and will need replacing despite having UV on both sides.
✔ Genuine written 10yr Warranty
✔ Will outperform and last up to 40% longer than standard applications
✔ Protects the panel from discolouring due to the double layer (50 Micron Protection)
✔ Due to the Double Protectant Layer on the outside surface it will stand up to hail and provide overall strength far longer than any other standard application
