- The all polycarbonate covering provides the greenhouse with maximum insulation, weather protection, and light diffusion creating the best environment for growing plants.
- With the glass / polycarbonate combination you get the beauty and clarity of tempered glass on the end and side walls and the strength, light diffusion, and insulation of 6mm polycarbonate on the roof where it is most effective (a great combination).
- Get the permanence and clarity with the all glass covering. All of the glass is tempered for strength and safety. The tempering process increases the strength 10 times that of untempered glass, and when tempered safety glass is struck it does not break into sharp jagged pieces of shrapnel-like glass as normal window panes or mirrors do. Instead, it breaks into little pebble-like pieces, without sharp edges.

|Roof vent systems include 48" x 20" vents in the roof of the greenhouse. With the Solar Roof Vent System, each vent is automated with a Bayliss triple spring vent opener. This system runs completely on solar power and requires no electricity. The Electric Roof Vent System comes with a low voltage electric vent opener for each roof vent and a control panel which can automate the vents by temperature or humidity. The number of vents included depends on the size of greenhouse. Side vents and vent screens are also available.

The diagram above shows the optimal placement of the fan system (configuration may differ in larger models that require multiple fans).
