Product Code: ELI-COM-20
At just 4ft wide, this 20ft Elite Compact Greenhouse is imaginatively designed to offer a wonderfully productive structure, full of practical features and with the opportunity to add masses of accessories.
The aluminium frame is powder coated in an attractive colour of your choice. Naurally warp and rot resistant, it is also maintenance free and boasts a high ridge and eaves that offer a superb working and growing space.
Only your finger tips are required to slide open the double doors and you'll immediately notice the low threshold that makes it much easier for wheelchairs to gain access or if you are pushing a wheel barrow. Further doors can be added at the far end to make this long greenhouse even more accessible.
No greenhouse is complete without staging and shelving and there is a huge choice that can be optioned, made from either aluminium or Scandinavian pine in a tremendous variety of widths and lengths.
Four roof vents will introduce a cooling flow of air and this essential ventilation can be increased by adding more vents and ground level louvres. Automatic openers are available to ensure that the greenhouse never overheats.
It's very clear that this greenhouse is a very strong structure able to withstand bad weather and high winds. There's an integral base, the frame's robust eaves have corner bars that add a tremendous amount of rigidity and only high tensile fixings are used throughout.
It's simple to personalize your greenhouse by choosing your own options from an outstanding range of accessories, perhaps a rainwater collection kit and butt to connect to the integral gutttering, thus creating a perfect environment in which to cultivate a terrific amount of produce over many years.

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. It's made from PVC and is UVI treated.
For a more detailed explanation of what bar capping is, see our handy Bar Capping Guide here.
Please Note: Bar Capping is NOT suitable for use with horticultural glass. But is recommended for use with single sheet toughened and polycarbonate glazing.
Option 5 > Additional Rear Double Doors?
Having double doors at the rear of your Greenhouse is very convenient because you will be able to gain access from both ends and walk straight through your Greenhouse with ease.
Please select from the following rear double door options, you can also choose to have Bar Capping.
Option 6 > Cambered Door Sill and Support Plate
Should your greenhouse be built on compacted soil or grass we would recommend using the Cambered Door Cill with Support Plate over and under the bottom door rail as this will help spread the load and stops the rail sinking overtime.
Alternatively, wheelchairs and wheelbarrows will be able to access the greenhouse with the minimum of fuss over the low beam when using this ramp cill and support.

Option 9 > Discuss with an Elite Technician
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?
We offer 4ft and 6ft length aluminium staging (in silver or a powder coated finish) which allows extra workspace along the sides of your greenhouse. Purchase one set of staging to fit a certain area, or multiple sets (4ft + 6ft length) which can be used to fill a whole side or two of your greenhouse.
Alternatively, go with the more traditional wooden staging which is available in 4ft lengths, meaning that you will need 2 sets to fit an 8ft length of your greenhouse.
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.
You may decide to purchase both a 6ft and 4ft shelf kit to fit along the one full side (10ft length) of your greenhouse, or alternatively purchase two sets to create to have shelving along both sides.
