    with Single Sheet Toughened Glass
    Toughened to British Standard Class 6206 Grade A and European Standard EN12150 for maximum light and extra safety. All toughened glass models in this range utilise full sheet glass in the roof and side walls. This makes for a much cleaner line with no build up of moss or algae where the sheets of glass would normally overlap.
  • with 6mm Polycarbonate Glazing

    with 6mm Polycarbonate Glazing
    As well as the safety element it is a superb insulator, with the air trapped between the inner and outer skin acting as a mini double glazing unit. This will reduce winter heating costs. To aid growing polycarbonate defracts the sun's rays twice as it passes through the twinwall. This effect disperses the light far more evenly around the greenhouse. Supplied in a full sheet format and offers a more opaque appearance.

Questions and Answers (1)

Neil Kitchen Asked:

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. Kind regards, Luke
