THIS PREMIUM QUALITY ALUMINIUM GREENHOUSE: These high quality greenhouses are built to a specification which was originally developed for conservatories and not greenhouses. The heavy duty aluminium frame features box section aluminium glazing bars, corner posts and ridge beam. In addition, the aluminium base plinth features heavy duty box section beams. The basic prices include 4mm thick toughened safety glass as standard with polycarbonate available as an option. The glazing is retained neatly with a substantial rubber external gasket. The edges of the glass are completely concealed. The sophisticated glazing system is stronger and neater than other greenhouse glazing systems.
BOX SECTION ALUMINIUM: This substantial greenhouse features hollow box section aluminium glazing bars, corner posts and ridge beam. Most greenhouses feature a T-shaped profile for the glazing bars but this greenhouse includes a much stronger box profile. The ridge and corner posts also feature a hollow chamber for extra strength and rigidity.
CHOICE OF DOOR POSITION: Door can be positioned in any place of any glazing panel except in a panel immediately adjacent to a corner. Single doors are the same width as one glazing panel. Double doors are the same width as two glazing panels. This is only possible because of the unrivalled 6'7" eaves height.
UNIQUE GLAZING SYSTEM: The glazing is retained neatly with a substantial rubber external gasket. This glazing system was originally developed for conservatory glazing. It is a sophisticated glazing system which is stronger and neater than other greenhouse glazing systems.
POWDER COATED ALUMINIUM: The powder coated finish is more attractive than the stark silver finish aluminium greenhouses The tough finish also has excellent weathering properties and retains its gloss and colour superbly. A good example of powder coating is the finish on your washing machine. Powder coated aluminium greenhouses have a similar finish. The powder coated finish is available in a choice of colours. If you opt for a non-standard colour we will contact you to discuss your requirements.
TOUGHENED GLASS: Toughened glass is the best glazing material for use in greenhouses. It is around 6 times stronger than normal glass so it is less likely to break and 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. Toughened glass also strengthens the frame and it is heavy which helps to resist wind. Full height toughened glass is supplied in larger sizes than horticultural glass with no overlapping glass. All glass supplied is 4mm thick toughened safety glass to BS6206 Class A.
GREENHOUSE LOCATION: Ideally your greenhouse should have a clear space at least 18" wide on all sides, if possible. This ensures easy access for both installation and future maintenance. In reality this is often not practical and at many sites it is not needed. A reduced clearance is often possible on one or two sides. You should cut back or remove any nearby shrubs and trees. Remember to allow for future growth. Ideally the ridge of a greenhouse should run from east to west. The best position for a freestanding greenhouse is a sunny spot outside the shadow of nearby buildings and trees. A sheltered position is best otherwise additional screening may be advisable. Plants need plenty of water so your greenhouse should be close to a water supply and the site should be well drained.
OCTAGONAL BUILDING SIZES: For ease of reference these octagonal greenhouses are measured as a rectangle. The first dimension listed is the overall width from side to side and the second dimension is the depth from front to back. The external wall sizes are listed alongside the price. These sizes do not include the roof overhang. Many other suppliers quote the overall roof size which is much larger.

HEATERS: We offer a huge range of heaters so whatever your specific requirements we have a heater to do the job. Our electric heaters require a standard domestic 13 amp electricity supply. Our propane gas heaters require permanent trickle ventilation when in use. As an approximate guide, a 3kw heater will heat a greenhouse up to 8'x12' or provide frost protection only up to 10'x15' in normal site conditions. A 1.5kw heater will normally heat a greenhouse up to 6'x8' or provide frost protection only up to 6'x12'. Internal partitions are often used in large greenhouses to create a smaller warm room which is cheaper and easier to heat.
HEATING REQUIREMENTS: Heating requirements vary for several reasons. Location is one factor with more heating required in Scotland than in southern England and less heating required in a sheltered position. The design is also a factor. For example, dwarf walls improve the insulation and lean to greenhouses absorb warmth from the existing wall. Another factor is the materials used. Polycarbonate greenhouses retain heat better than glass and wooden greenhouses retain heat better than metal greenhouses. We recommend you to buy a bigger heater than you need - you can always turn it down.
