Our verdict on the Polytunnel Greenhouse 4×10.6×2 m, 42.4 m², Green Green

The Polytunnel Greenhouse 4×10.6×2 m, 42.4 m², Green Green is treated using a uv protected process [1]. The 5 windows used on this particular 4′ x 10.6′ use a glazing material (Thickness was not specified).

Base material: polyethylene [2]

Our experts say this has 1 stand out feature. A stand out feature is something found on over 70% of the top 10% of products in a particular category or is an exceptionally good feature as rated by our panel of experts.

1. A uv protected treatment like the one used on this greenhouse is one our experts are happy to say is one of the best around.

Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this greenhouse fairs across the market.

Treatment

Fantastic, our experts say most of the treatment options used are among the best.

The uv protected treatment process used here is one of the best types of treatment out of 2 [3] types we’ve identified on same-size greenhouses that you’ll see getting used on 4% [4] (34 of 787) of all greenhouses analysed, as well as being used on 32% [5] (25 of 78) of the top 10% of greenhouses. In fact this is the only 4′ x 10.6′ greenhouse you’ll find that uses an uv protected treatment process [6].

Read full analysis for treatment.

Cladding

The polyethylene cladding(walls) used here is an about average form of construction for greenhouse walls out of the 2 types [7] we’ve identified on same-size greenhouses, that you’ll also see getting used on 2% (17 of 787) of all greenhouses analysed [8], and sadly not present at all on any of the 78 greenhouses that make up the top 10% of greenhouses [9]. In fact this is the only 4′ x 10.6′ greenhouse you’ll find that uses a polyethylene wall [10].

Height

The height of this greenhouse is 2000mm (7′) which is 1% more than the average 4′ x 10.6′ greenhouse, giving you 25.0mm (0.1′) extra headroom.

Doors

The door height is 1,820.00mm (6′) tall which is 14% or 222.50mm (0.7′) taller than the average 4′ x 10.6′.
The door width is 780.00mm (3′) wide which is 25% or 157.14mm (0.5′) wider than the average 4′ x 10.6′.

You Might Also Consider

We found 3 4′ x 10.6′ greenhouses with comparable specifications. The Polytunnel Greenhouse 4×10.6×2 m, 42.4 m², Green Green has an Expert Score that is 3% higher than average and is £45 less expensive than average. If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring greenhouses out of the 3 with comparable specifications the following might be of interest.

Best value – If you are looking for something comparable that costs less, then you could save £1 with this Greenhouse Polycarbonate Extension, TITAN Classic 480, 4.7 m², 2.35×2 m, Silver Silver. It is priced at £720, this is 36% more than this and has an Expert Score of 77, 2 points less than the Polytunnel Greenhouse 4×10.6×2 m, 42.4 m², Green Green.

The Polytunnel Greenhouse 4×10.6×2 m, 42.4 m², Green Green is the best scoring greenhouse available out of all 3 4′ x 10.6′ greenhouses we analysed.

High Wind Area – If you live in a particularly exposed or high wind area then having a greenhouse with a thicker cladding and higher than average frame thickness can be preferable. We found at least 1 greenhouses that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Coastal Consideration – If you live in a particularly wet or harsher environment such as by the coast then you might want to consider something with a more robust pressure treatment or something made from metal or plastic, both materials that are particularly suited to such harsh environments. We’ve found at least 3 greenhouses that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Dancover Expert Tip
Polytunnel greenhouses are great for growing a variety of different plants. Remember to water frequently, ventilate as much as possible and harvest your crops regularly! It is extremely important that you keep the cover on the polytunnel greenhouse stretched and taut at all times. Otherwise, a risk emerges that during a rainfall water pile up on the roof of your greenhouse, which may cause the greenhouse to collapse.

1. UV treated: The British Plastics Federation says that the addition of light stabilisers (they are called hindered amine light stabilisers (HALS)) in plastics are used “to inhibit the reactions in plastics which cause undesirable chemical degradation from exposure to UV light.” This chemical degradation from exposure to UV light is often seen as chalking or a white residue that forms as the polymers degrade over time. This degradation can often be avoided by adding HALS that are UV absorbers such as benzotriazoles, benzophenones or organic nickel compounds. By incorporating weathering stabilisers into the plastics used the damaging effects of UV light will be slowed down considerably. 

2. Polyethylene: Polyethylene (Low Density) LDPE, LLDPE is not commonly used for the construction of garden buildings or storage units. The most common use for LDPE is in the thin film used to cover poly tunnels.

According to data from the British Plastics Fedaration the physical properties of Polyethylene (Low Density) are that it is not very good when exposed to high heat with a maximum continuous use temperature of 65 °C. This is however offset by the outstanding Notched Impact Strength data that showed ‘no break’.
