Product Code: ELI-KEN6-6

Description

At 6ft 5ins long this is the smallest lean to in the Kensington 6ft wide range, a useful size that gives the gardener enough room to cultivate an impressive variety of plants.

As with other Elite greenhouses you are encouraged to equip the lean to with optional accessories that will make your gardening more enjoyable and productive.

The frame is manufactured from rigid aluminium with high tensile bolts, and the structure is maintenance free since it will not warp, rust or rot. You have the choice of several powder coated colours or a silver milled aluminium finish.

The single door that slides that effortlessly slides open can be placed at either or both gable ends, increasing accessibility and making the lean to much more adaptable to a number of locations.

A roof vent and five blade louvre contribute to effective air circulation, so important especially in the summer when the temperature inside a greenhouse gets too high. To prevent this happening when you are away from home, automatic vent openers are available as optional accessories.

Unless the lean to is covering a houshold entrance when toughened glass is essential, there is a choice of three types of glazing including horticultural and polycarbonate. Bar capping can be added enhancing the glazing's appearance and also increasing water resistance.

Rainwater runs off the lean to into an aluminium gutter that also adds strength to the frame. If you fit an optional collection kit, the rainwater can be stored in a butt ready to be recycled.    

An extruded aluminium shelf is included as standard and this can be augmented by other shelving and staging. The lean to can then become a highly productive growing space regularly supplying flower bed plants.  

Although a base can be built from bricks, slabs or similar material, choosing an Elite alloy base is probably the best option, saving you time and effort. The base can also be smartly 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.

Option 2 > Choose Your Greenhouse Glass

with 3mm Horticultural Glass

with 3mm Horticultural Glass

Horticultural 3mm float glass as traditionally used in greenhouses. This is the standard minimum specification and is INCLUDED with your frame choice. Provided in traditional panes which are supported using overlapping clips. This type of glass isn't recommended if you have children or pets around due to the more fragile nature.

with Single Sheet Toughened Glass

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.
The thickness of the glass varies, the long roof and side panels are 4mm thick whilst the shapes and smaller rectangles are 3mm thick.
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.

Option 3 > Do I Need a Base?

No Alloy Base Required

No Alloy Base Required

mrs nita ross Asked:

Colin brown Asked:

How is the frame for the lean-to fixed to the wall and does it require sealing?

We Replied:

Dear Colin Brown, Thank you for your question. Our Elite lean-to greenhouses are secured to the wall by drilling, plugging and screwing into the wall with the stainless steel screws provided in the kit. There is a paper-backed foam seal that is 6mm thick - you peel off the paper and stick it to the wall bars and ridge and as you screw the frame to the wall the foam seal compresses and ‘straightens out' any minor undulations on the host wall. There is also an all-weather silicone seal in the kit which you insert between the alloy wall bars, ridge and the host wall rather like sealing a kitchen sink against a work-top. Hope the above helps, please contact us again if we can be of any further help Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind Regards, Gaby
