Important! Studies have shown that acrylic foam for greenhouses and greenhouses allows about 86% of sunlight, which is ideal for growing most vegetables, berry and other crops.
Another feature of the material that none of its analogues possesses is the ability to "breathe".Such a greenhouse is able to pass through moisture and air, while maintaining a stable temperature. This quality allows the summer resident to breathe freely from constant airing and fears about overheating or hypothermia of plants.
The film is sold in rolls, the standard sheet size is 10 meters long and 3.2 meters wide. The cost of the material varies depending on its thickness. In particular, a package with a thickness of 30 will cost 180 rubles, 60 - respectively 360 rubles. Of course, the film is thicker, the more hardy it will be when used.
The usual small temporary greenhouse from the profile pipe and acrylic film will cost in an amount approximate to 1300 rubles. At the same time it is worthwhile to think carefully whether it is worth wasting your time and energy, if you can buy a ready design for about 1000 rubles. As in the first, and in the second case, the greenhouse can be installed for the season and dismantled for the winter. If used correctly, the design will last three to four seasons, after which the coating will need to be replaced.
In the case of making acrylic windowsills, it's hard to believe that this is the same material that was described in the first part of the article. However, the universality of acrylic is that from it you can create exactly what you need, without any "buts."Therefore, when it comes to making acrylic windowsills, you can safely imagine an artificial stone with all the ensuing properties. Namely:
The material consists of only two main components: mineral filling and binding acrylic resins. Another non-essential component is the color composition.
The thickness of this window sill can vary from 12 to 30 mm - that is, it is quite thin - but its strength will be comparable to that of natural stone, and its weight is much lighter. With regard to wooden window sills, acrylics are inferior in warmth and comfort, but they significantly benefit by the period of exploitation.
Alternatively, cheaper variations are used, when the polymer is used without a mineral component, and acrylic laminates are applied for decorative purposes. Such a design will be much more affordable, but in terms of strength and durability will be inferior to the artificial stone.
The cost of the window board directly depends on your taste preferences and financial possibilities. Here are a few basic principles in pricing acrylic windowsills:
