Plastic Cold Frames

Available with wooden or aluminium frames, these are glazed with twin walled polycarbonate. This does not allow as much light through as glass but is far better as an insulator than glass and not as fragile or dangerous if broken. Because the light is diffused by the material, the risk of scorching in sunny weather is reduced.

My experience with wooden framed polycarbonate coldframes is that they tend to warp allowing the glazing panels to spring free.
