Product Code: ELI-KEN4-14
Well appointed and manufactured to a very high standard, the Kensington 4ft wide x 14ft lean to greenhouse offers great potential for enthusiastic gardeners who want to create their own bespoke structure.
You won't get a better start than the rigid, warp and rust free frame, that has high tensile fixings and a heavy duty gutter for strength and durability. The frame can be silver milled aluminium or powder coated with one of several colours.
With access being so important, you'll be pleased to learn that a single door can be fitted to either end of the lean to, or in fact on the front where they can be doubled up to enable even easier to gain entry.
A flow of cool air throughout the summer is important to reduce humidity and regulate temperatures. That's why there's two roof vents and a louvre already installed. You can fit more if required, it's your choice. As is the decision whether or not automatic openers are needed, these are particularly useful if you spend time away from home.
The choice of glazing is fairly straightforward. Toughened is obligatory if the lean to is located over a household entrance, otherwise the alternatives are polycarbonate or horticultural. Whether or not you fit bar capping is completely up to you, it looks very attractive, forms a water resistant seal and helps secure the glazing.
Shelving and staging is an important consideration. There's so much space to grow plants you'll need more than the standard extruded shelf and there's an enormous choice of widths, lengths and types.
A very popular accessory is the rainwater collection kit which is fitted to the gutter. Rainwater can then be stored in a butt and used when required instead of mains water.
Building a base from bricks or slabs is hard work, but a base is essential so perhaps the best idea is to purchase an Elite alloy base that can also be colour co-ordinated with the frame.
Please note that the photographs illustrate various Kensington greenhouses and show both standard features that are listed below and optional accessories that can be purchased separately.

Select Your Options
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.
Option 2 > Choose Your Greenhouse Glass
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 > Do I Need a Base?
Yes, quite simply you do. Greenhouse frames need to lip over a base (or upstand) which also allows the door to lip under the frame. The base also gives you the required height needed inside your greenhouse. Without a base your greenhouse would be 5ins too low.
Preformed Alloy Bases are available in either milled silver aluminium or powder coated to match your chosen frame colour. All Elite Supreme Bases come complete with a drop door option which gives a low threshold. Alternatively, you can build a brick base but you will need to be accurate with your measurements.
Option 4 > 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 > Where would you like your door positioning?
A Single Door comes as standard and there is the option to upgrage to Double Doors however Double Doors cannot be fitted in the gable ends of a Kensington 4 or 6.
Please select from the options below where you would like your door positioning?
Option 6 > Internal Partition with Single Door?
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 single door. 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 check 1 of the first 3 boxes below. You then add to your initial choice by checking any other appropriate boxes. You may have to check up to 4 check boxes. This is a complex option so please choose carefully!
We will contact to you to determine the final positioning of you partition.
