Supreme Plastics    Stand 40
PO Box 29035, Epsom, Auckland    Ph 09 636 0949

If you’re looking at re-cladding or upgrading your greenhouses or glasshouses, or even just needing to replace some panels, then a visit to the Supreme Plastics Roofing stand at Trade Day is a must.

Supreme are the people who supply specialised thermal sheeting for use on home and commercial hothouses, tunnel houses, even growing boxes, and they will be offering Special Trade Day pricing– an ideal opportunity for do-it-yourselfers as well as professional constructors to get great deals.

Call in to update yourself on what is available should you need it in future.


While based in Auckland, Supreme operates throughout New Zealand, much of their product going through two major greenhouse builders, one in the North and one in the South Island, although they say ‘no job is too big or too small.’

They specialise in a variety of polycarbonate and fibreglass products including corrugated and Greca profile polycarbonate sheeting in lengths up to 7.2m. These represent good value for money and come in clear to maximise the amount of light and heat to diffused or opal for plenty of light but a reduction of heat.

Where long lengths of up to 31m are required, then The Greenhouse Topglass GC fibreglass is a strong and durable option.

For growers wanting to extend their growing season the Twinwall clear 6mm or 8mm sheeting is the answer. The thin rectangular wall tunnel structure makes this an excellent sheet for vertical and curved jobs and the multi-wall construction traps air between the layers, which ensures outstanding thermal insulation.

Special prices on Trade Day for specialised thermal sheeting for re-cladding, upgrading or repairing greenhouses/tunnel houses.
