Alton Evolution Cold Frame - Cedar, Side Panels
Size 4'5"x2'1" (1348mm x 645mm). This large cedar cold frame features a strong wooden frame and toughened safety glass. The modern hybrid design cleverly combines the warmth and natural beauty of cedar with the performance and durability of profiled aluminium. The base plinth and lid edges are aluminium with cedar external capping. The aluminium components are powder coated grey to compliment the natural colour of the cedar when new and as it fades. The cedar is finished with a colourless preservative to enhance its natural beauty. Two hinged lids are included, each with a separate ventilation stay and variable levels to give you greater control. The lids can also be slid open sideways or removed altogether. A complete set of cedar cladding panels are supplied which can be fitted in place of the standard glass panels. These attractive and durable cladding panels provide much better insulation than glass. For added design flexibility, it is possible to mix and match the panels to have half as glass and half as cedar cladding. The first three pictures show the standard cold frame with all the cladding panels fitted. The fourth picture shows the cold frame with glass fitted to the front.

WESTERN RED CEDAR: Western Red Cedar is a naturally resilient timber which lasts longer than pine and other softwoods, even if never treated from new. It has been widely used in construction for over a century. During this time cedar has deservedly earned an unrivalled reputation for its attractive appearance and extraordinary durability. It is the ideal choice for people who are too busy to maintain their garden building. This oily timber has a strong but pleasant aroma which repells insects. Cedar contains hardly any knots. If untreated it will fade to a silvery grey colour. Western Red Cedar is a sustainable resource from the well managed forests of North America.
CEDAR CAPPING: The external capping protects the main structural framing timber which remains dry in all weather. Cedar capping provides a softer and more traditional appearance. The natural durability of cedar combined with the use of aluminium in vulnerable areas ensures that cedar capping will last. The cedar capping is treated with a colourless preservative.
TOUGHENED SAFETY GLASS: Toughened safety glass is around 6 times stronger than normal glass so it is less likely to break. When it does break, toughened glass breaks into harmless small pieces. This makes toughened glass the best option for all the family including children, pets and the elderly.
