Greenhouses

What materials are your greenhouses made from?

All of our greenhouse models are designed with heavy-duty galvanized steel frames and 6 or 10mm double wall polycarbonate panels. 

Are all of your greenhouses UV-protected?

Absolutely! The double-wall polycarbonate panels we use across our different models provide 100% protection against UV rays.

How wind resistant are Planta Greenhouses?

Our greenhouses are incredibly sturdy and can withstand wind speeds up to 65mph (100 km/h), depending on the model.

How much snow can Planta Greenhouses hold?

Solid construction ensures that our strongest greenhouses can withstand a snow load of up to 75 psf (360 kg / m²). This equals 6 feet of fresh snow or 3 feet of packed snow. Please note that snow loads do vary depending on the model. 

How can I connect with other greenhouse owners?

We have a closed Facebook Group for Planta Greenhouse owners and curious shoppers alike! This is the perfect place to connect with other greenhouse owners, share experiences, and discover different tips & tricks for growing with your Planta greenhouse.

What happens if the winds exceed the amount that the greenhouse withstands?

The wind resistance of the greenhouse can be improved by setting up the greenhouse on a solid base foundation. If you're expecting higher winds, it is strongly recommended to double-check the strapping of the greenhouse that holds the panels and retighten them as they tend to loosen, especially after strong winds and winter time. Ensure the straps are secured correctly according to the instructions in the installation videos.

Where are Planta Greenhouses manufactured?

Our greenhouses are made in Europe and are customized for the North American climate.

We have a network of partners, each specializing in their respective industries. The parts that make up the greenhouse come from Bulgaria, Estonia, Germany, Netherlands and Turkey.

The customization possibilities are truly endless with a Planta Greenhouse. To help you get started, take a look through “16 Ways to Supercharge Your Greenhouse” on our blog. 

Is hanging plants, heaters, and hammocks safe from my greenhouse frame? How much weight does it handle without affecting the guarantee?

It is safe to hang plants and accessories on a Sungrow greenhouse since each internal reinforcement arch can withstand up to 100 lbs/45.3 Kg. On the Sigma series, you can pre-drill the holes on the framing and hang small things. We would not suggest hanging anything heavier than 5 – 10 lbs / 2.2 – 4.5 Kg per arch.

May I heat my greenhouse with fire pits or similar?

You can use any heating source inside, like electricity, gas, propane, and even wood. It may be tricky to heat with wood, as you want to ensure that you keep the stove/pit away from the panels to prevent them from melting or burning if they are too close to the fire source. In this case, the customers ideally would want to come up with an exhaust system, making sure it’s not in contact with the panels, for being a flammable material.
