Glazing1 ECONOMICAL – Our greenhouse kits feature a thermostatically controlled ventilation system and aluminum bench framework. Besides the fact that a Sunglo Greenhouse is a good buy, since it has such a long life, it is extremely economical to operate. Sunglo Greenhouses are constructed with two wall panels. This double wall construction allows for better temperature control than glass. The two layers of high-impact acrylic plexiglass create a 1 1/2 inch dead air space which provides 10 times the insulation of a single pane of glass! This makes a Sunglo Greenhouse energy efficient enough to use all year round no matter where you live!

STRONG – Designed 45 years ago by two experienced former Boeing engineers who
knew all about precision and strength. All Sunglo Greenhouse Kits are constructed of a durable aluminum framework with impact resistant acrylic panels. Before we built our first Sunglo Greenhouse we knew they were going to be strong but we didn’t know how strong! After running some tests we found our Model 1000C supported over 2,500 pounds of snow and withstood wind gusts of up to 80 miles per hour without worry. Our heavy gauge DR Plexiglas also has 100 times the impact strength of any single pane glass greenhouse today. In Seattle we have visited customers with original Sunglo greenhouses that are over 35 years old.

EASY TO ASSEMBLE – We provide you with a detailed instruction manual and installation video for our greenhouse kits. All of the components are pre-cut and easy to work with. If you have any experience with hand tools you can easily build a Sunglo Greenhouse. People have build them by themselves but we recommend to at least work as a team. Just follow the instructions, contact us with questions, and you’ll do just fine.

COMPLETE PACKAGE – Each greenhouse kit comes as a complete package including all of the standard necessities such as a fan, a shutter, and a thermostat. This means that you have everything you need to get started! Additionally we can provide you with lights, heaters, built-in cedar benches, matching cedar shelves, grow trays and many other greenhouse accessories.

FUNCTIONAL – Sunglo Greenhouses are fully functional, all season structures with features that are appreciated by the professional gardener and the hobbyist alike. The greenhouses can support more than 2,500 lbs of snow in the winter and high winds in the spring and fall. In the warmer months, air is circulated through the greenhouse at least once per minute by the integrated thermostatically controlled exhaust fan and motorized intake shutter. No need to be home. Your Sunglo manages itself while you are on vacation.
