Description

Manufactured to a very high standard and well appointed, the Kensington 4ft wide x 12ft lean to offers enormous potential for keen gardeners who want to create their own bespoke greenhouse.        

The frame is maintenance, rust and warp free, it's constructed from rigid aluminium and has high tensile fixings for strength and durability. This is a great starting point and you can choose a silver milled aluminium finish or a powder coated colour.

Access is very important so Elite let you locate the door at either or both ends. With this size of greenhouse you can also install a door at the front of the greenhouse or why not make that double doors.

There's a roof vent and louvre that introduce a flow of cool air during the summer, so important to combat high temperatures and too much humidity. Again, it's your choice whether to fit any more or to operate them with automatic openers that are very useful if you have to spend any time away from home.

Glazing is another important consideration. If the lean to is positioned against a household entrance then you must choose toughened glass, otherwise the alternatives are horticultural or polycarbon. Another option is bar capping, an attractive and effective way of further securing the glazing and creating a water resistant seal.

With plenty of space to sow and grow your own plants, shelving and staging is essential. There's already an extruded shelf and the choice of further sizes and types, widths and lengths is comprehensive - you will soon have a very useful amount of working and storage space.  

Among the more popular accessories is a rainwater collection kit. Fitted to the gutter, the kit will enable you to collect and recycle a resource that's so much better than tap water to keep your plants happy.

A base is essential. You could build one from bricks or slabs but it probably makes sense to purchase an alloy one that is specifically designed for an Elite greenhouse.

    with Single Sheet Toughened Glass
    Toughened to British Standard Class 6206 Grade A and European Standard EN12150 for maximum light and extra safety.

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.
