Lumisol sheets

Postby tracietortoise » Mon May 08, 2017 10:03 pm

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help point me in the right direction . . . I would like to buy some Lumisol (or similar?) sheets to use to make some new cold frame type shelters for use in my outdoor tortoise pens. I live in the east midlands but happy to either travel or perhaps some one can recommend a mail order supplier. Any pointers much appreciated thank you :-)

hi joe, thanks for the link - some good build ideas on there. I also found this company https://www.plasticstockist.com/UV-Grad ... Sheet.aspx . They will do custom sizes which would be great to fit into a frame but i don't know if the amount of uv that this stuff transmits is high enough for torts. Never easy trying to do the best for them is it! :roll:

I'd stick to the lumisol clear that was used in the climate frame experiment...excellent results and very easy to work with,I had a look on your link you posted but didn't find any materials suitable that would let in uv like the lumisol does..I'd personally use some if the clear products they sell only for viewing panels/Windows's.
Hope this helps
Joe
