Product Code: ELI-HEE-18
Part of Elite's extensive range of High Eave greenhouses, the 6ft 3ins x 18ft 6ins version is aimed at serious gardeners who will take full advantage of the extra height that's offered and the copious amount of growing space.
You'll be immediately aware that the aluminium frame is braced for extra strength and has an integral base. Sliding the single door open, there is a step free low threshold that's useful if you are pushing a wheelbarrow or confined to a wheelchair. Due to its height, the greenhouse is easy to move about in and gives you the opportunity to grow a flourishing range of plants, especially tall varieties whose growth may be hindered in a smaller greenhouse.
There's the choice of many accessories and options to tailor the greenhouse to your own personal preferences. Although there are four roof vents already, you may want to fit a louvre or automatic vent opener. Shelving and staging is another major consideration and there's plenty to choose from.
You may prefer a certain type of glazing, there's a choice of three. A partition might create different growing zones within the greenhouse and outside a rain collection kit is always worthwhile. How the greenhouse looks and performs is completely up to you.

Option 1 > Choose Your Frame Colour
Please select from the following ten frame colours. Milled Silver aluminium is pre-selected by default and is the standard option. However, powder coated frame options are also available at an additional cost.

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. 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 4 > Cresting and Finials?
Crestings and Finials are available in either a standard silver milled aluminium or any of powder coated colours depending on your chosen greenhouse frame above.
If required please tick the appropriate check box below to match the colour of the finials to your chosen greenhouse colour finish above.
Option 5 > Additional Rear Single Door?
Having a single door 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 single 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 7 > Internal Partition
Would you like an Internal Partition? This option enables you to divide your greenhouse into 2 sections. This is ideal where you wish to create areas or zones for plants with differing needs.
Available in milled silver aluminium or powder coated coloured finish, complete with integral base and double doors. You can also choose to have Bar Capping and all the glazing options are available.
If you choose an Internal Partition you will need to tick 1 of the first 3 boxes below. You then add to your initial choice by ticking any other appropriate boxes. You may have to tick up to 3 check boxes. This is a complex option so please choose carefully!
We will contact to you to determine the final positioning of you partition.

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 6ft and 8ft 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 (e.g 6ft + 8ft lengths together) which can be used to fill a whole 14ft side or two of your greenhouse.
Alternatively, go with the more traditional wooden staging which is available in 4ft lengths.
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 a set of 8ft + 6ft staging which will then fit one full length (14ft) inside your greenhouse, or alternatively purchase four sets (2x 8ft and 2x 6ft) shelves to fit along both sides of your greenhouse.
Accessories > Heating?
