Elite Kensington 6ft 5ins Wide x 8ft 5ins Long
We are committed to Low Prices.

Product Code: ELI-KEN6-8
A Kensington 6ft 5ins wide x 8ft 5ins long lean to from Elite is an impressively manufactured aluminium greenhouse. Already well appointed, you have the chance to create a bespoke structure to your own design using optional accessories.
As the frame is rigid aluminium, it's maintenance free, with no rusting or warping, The bolts and fixings are high tensile and extremely strong. With a powder coating the frame can be finished in one of several colours or a silver milled aluminium finish can prove very attractive.
With accessibility a priority it is reassuring to know that in addition to a sliding door fitted at either or both gable end, single or double doors can be installed on the front of the greenhouse. This also increases the number of positions where the greenhouse can be located.
Problems with stagnant air and humidity can arise in a greenhouse if there isn't enough air circulation, that's why a single roof vent and a five blade louvre are fitted as standard. Cooling air is drawn in and circulates on different levels, this means that the greenhouse never becomes overheated. to save time and effort, automatic vent openers are optional and will be particularly useful if you have to leave the greenhouse unattended for any length of time.
If you position the lean to over a household entrance you must have toughened glazing. If not there are the alternatives of horticultural glass or polycarbonate. Bar capping is optional, it looks good, secures the glazing and increases water resistance.
By installing a collection kit to the heavy duty guttering, water can be directed into a butt for recycling. Plants prefer rainwater to tap water and you will be helping to conserve this increasingly precious resource.
All these alternatives, and many more, will create a great growing and working area and one more essential would be sstaging and shelving. There's already a useful extruded shelf that can be go on the side or end, but if you want to sow seed and pot plants you need to consider Elite's impressive range of optional staging.
The greenhouse must have a base for a stable and level footing. This can be constructed from bricks or similar material, or alternatively save yourself the effort by choosing an alloy base that can 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 six frame colours. Milled Silver aluminium is pre-selected by default. Powder Coated coloured frames are available at the costs shown. All of the six frame options INCLUDE Horticultural Glass. You can upgrade this glass option to Toughened Glass or Twinwall Polycarbonate, if required, at Option 2.
A mirrored price is displayed in 'Your Running Total'.
Option 2 >>> Choose your Glazing Option?
We offer three different types of glazing. 3mm Horticultural Glass 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 Polycaronate Glazing is indicated below.
Note: If your Lean To covers a doorway onto your home you MUST upgarde to toughened Glass or Polycarbonate Glazing. It is illegal to cover a doorway with a structure glazed with horticultural glass.
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.
However, you do not need to buy a preformed base. You can build it from brick, or even from very substantial timber. In some instances building a smaller base yourself may be advantageous. If you do build your own base you need to be accurate with your measurements.
Preformed Alloy Bases are available in either milled silver aluminium or powder coated to match your chosen frame colour. These bases are the easier option compared to the alternative of building your own brick base.
Option 4 >>> What is Bar Capping?
Bar capping is a continuous strip glazing system used instead of glazing clips.
This gives a far neater streamlined apperance.
It is made from PVC and is UVI treated.
It is available in black , green or white.
Not suitable for use with horticultural glass. Recommended for use with Single Sheet Toughened Glass. When using with Polycarbonate do not use the rubber glazing gasket.
Option >>> 5 Upgrade to Additional Doors?
|This is where the Kensington range really excels. A single door is supplied as standard, and this can be fitted to either gable end or anywhere along the front wall. However you can upgrade your single door to double doors (if positioned in the front wall and your Kensington is at least 8ft long) by adding another door from the options below. You can also add more than one additional door. If you wanted a single door in BOTH gable ends; and double doors along the front wall (4 doors in total) simply add another 3 doors to your order. You cannot fit double doors in the gable end of a Kensington 4 or 6.
If you have previously chosen Bar Capping you will also need to select the option INCLUDING Bar Capping.
Please select the quantity and tick the appropriate check box below.
Should you want any other option other than a single door in the end gable please ensure you tick the box further down this page to request an Elite technician to call.
Option >>> 6 Add an Internal Partition?
