We offer three different types of glazing: 3mm Horticultural Glass which is pre-selected by default, but you can upgrade to single sheet Toughened Glass or 6mm Polycarbonate Glazing here.
As Horticultural Glass is included in your frame price it is a NO COST option. The additional cost of Toughened Glass or Polycarbonate Glazing is indicated below.
Please Note: Greenhouse glass images below are for guidance only.
Option 3 > Bar Capping?
Bar capping is a continuous strip glazing system used instead of glazing clips, this gives a far neater streamlined appearance and helps to stop rainwater seeping through the glass seams. It's made from PVC and is UV treated for long term weatherproofing.
Please Note: Bar capping is NOT suitable for use with horticultural glass. It is only suitable for use with single sheet toughened and polycarbonate glazing.
Option 4 > Cresting & Finials
Crestings and finials are available in either a standard silver aluminium or any of the powder-coated colours chosen for your greenhouse frame. If required please tick the appropriate checkbox below to match the colour of the finials to your chosen greenhouse colour finish above.

Having double doors at the rear of your Greenhouse is very convenient because you will be able to gain access from both ends and to walk straight through your Greenhouse with ease.

Accessories > Ventilation?
Ventilation is essential for any greenhouse no matter the size to ensure that the humidity and temperature inside provides the best growing experience for your new plants.
Accessories > Staging
Elite's super strength slatted Aluminium or Power-Coated staging can be fitted to any Elite greenhouse through the use of cantilever bracing, which is attached directly onto the greenhouse framework with no visible legs, also keeping clear valuable workspace underneath.
You can have staging down one or both sides of your greenhouse, either to fully fit the sides or just to partially cover.
Accessories > Shelving
By adding a shelf or two to your greenhouse, you'll have added workspace areas to store small tools, pots and seedlings. Each set of shelves comes complete with the necessary braces to install them to your Elite greenhouse frame.
Shelving can be installed on both sides of your greenhouse.
Each shelf can be adjusted to any height you require and fit your greenhouse framework with the included diagonal braces.

Does this greenhouse come flat packed and is delivered onto my drive way? Can I self-assemble? Do I need any special tools? How does the glass fit into the frame (the place I have ear marked for the greenhouse goes up against a fence so would be impossible to fit glass from outside)? Does the greenhouse have a base and how does it anchor to the floor? What is the earliest date for delivery to the Wirral?We Replied:
Dear Neil, Thank you for your question. This item is delivered flat packed to your driveway.It is possible to assemble this greenhouse yourself you will only require a basic tool kit to do so. However, you would need to leave a 2ft gap around the greenhouse as glass needs to be fitted from the outside. This greenhouse has an integral base and can be anchored down to a suitable platform. Delivery is usually 4-6 weeks for a plain aluminium building and 6-8 weeks for the powder coated finish. Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us on 01213557701.
