Important terms to know when looking for your covering material

R-value refers to a material’s energy conserving and insulating properties. The more insulating a material is, the higher its R-value will be

Light transmission refers to the amount of visible light that enters through a glazing material.

Diffused light scatters natural light more softly throughout the greenhouse and reduces shadows caused by the greenhouse framing materials.
