The side walls are glazed with 6mm high quality glass clear acrylic. As well as this light-weight easy to maintain and durable material, the Endless Summer structure is strong enough to upgrade to toughened glass side walls. Opaque or frosted glazing can also be

The roof sections of each bay are glazed with a high tech polycarbonate with a


double wall cell structure to aid temperature stability. This is achieved by limiting heat loss and maximising internal reflection
