The picture shows the standard cold frame.

Summary:

This large cedar cold frame is 4'5"x2'1" (1348mm x 645mm). Features include 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 aluminium 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.

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.

ALUMINIUM CAPPING: With aluminium capping specified, there is hardly any external timber. The appearance is more modern but the overall impression remains of a beautiful cedar cold frame. With the main structural timbers protected from the elements, the aluminium capping provides the ultimate performance with the look and feel of cedar and the durability of aluminium. The aluminium capping is powder coated grey.

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.
