The economical coverage for canopies

Hello everyone, we are the Fenceshop team and today we will talk about a very versatile and affordable material for covering greenhouses, canopies, and other structures. We are talking about corrugated or flat fiberglass. This product is commonly used to cover canopies, vegetable gardens, and small areas where wood is stacked. Let's look together at its technical characteristics and various uses.

Technical characteristics of fiberglass

Fiberglass is a translucent laminate produced with polyester resins reinforced with glass fibers. The thickness of this material is about 0.5-0.6 mm. It is available both in corrugated and flat versions, and in green or neutral colors. The available dimensions are eight: 50 cm, 1 meter, 1.25 meters, 1.50 meters, 1.75 meters, 2 meters, 2.50 meters, and 3 meters. The rolls can be 30 or 40 meters long, depending on the height.

For those who need specific quantities, we at Fenceshop also offer cutting by the meter, making the product even more versatile for various needs.

Uses of fiberglass

The applications of fiberglass are numerous. It is ideal for covering gazebos, doghouses, balconies, canopies, and areas where wood or work tools are stored. In the flat version, it can also be used to create greenhouse walls.

How to lay fiberglass

Laying fiberglass can be somewhat complex, with a difficulty level of 3-4 out of 5. It is important to handle the material carefully to avoid damage. When working on a canopy, it is advisable to use wooden planks to walk on safely during the installation of the fix-ties.

Accessories for laying

The main accessories for laying fiberglass include:

  • Threaded rod: Used for corrugated covers. Available in three sizes (15 cm, 20 cm, 25 cm), it must be bent according to the profile of the canopy.
  • Wood nail: Ideal for laying fiberglass on wood. About 6 cm long, it has a notched part for better grip.
  • Half-moons: Plastic accessory placed under the wave of the fiberglass to prevent it from bending or breaking during installation.
  • Umbrella washer: Recommended for flat fiberglass. Made of soft rubber and galvanized metal, ideal for securing fiberglass to iron frames.
Cutting the material

To cut corrugated fiberglass, you can use scissors, but a disc grinder with a very fine disc is preferable. For flat fiberglass, you can use large scissors or a disc grinder.

Duration and price

Fiberglass is durable over time, although it may slightly discolor. It is important to secure it well to ensure its longevity using fix-ties every meter. The cost is around 5.30 euros per square meter, making it one of the most economical covering materials on the market.
