With Elite greenhouses you have the freedom to equip and build your own bespoke lean to, starting with a strong aluminium frame that can be kitted out with an array of optional accessories.
One very useful aspect of the Windsor 4ft x 14ft Lean To frame is the low ridge. This means that the greenhouse can be positioned against a wall, fence, shed or adjoining your house. It is very well designed, adaptable and robustly constructed with a single sliding door that can be fitted at either end. An extra door can also be fitted and access can be made easier by lowering the threshold.
Start the personalisation by selecting a colour for the frame. You can keep it as silver milled aluminium or powder coat it, choosing from several colours. The frame is made from aluminium, so will be maintenance free and will not suffer from warp or rusting.
Glazing is also an important consideration. Fit horticultural or upgrade to polycarbonate or toughened, the latter will need to be installed if you place your lean to next to a door from your house. Bar capping has several benefits. It looks attractive for starters, but functionally the capping secures glazing and also forms a watertight seal.
A base is essential, with Elite you have a choice. Build one from slabs or bricks or purchase a ready made alloy base that perfectly fits your greenhouse and can be colour co-ordinated with the frame.
Air circulation is extremely important in a greenhouse, that's why a roof vent is already in place. To improve the flow of air even more, why not fit an optional five blade louvre. The temperature and humidity during warm months can then be adequately regulated. You should also consider automatic openers for the louvre and roof vent, so that your plants won't get baked if you are away for any reason or on holiday.
Conserving water is important, it's an increasingly precious commodity and plants appreciate it more than tap water. That's the reason why a rainwater collection kit is another great idea. Fit it to the gutter and then re-cycle the water after it has collected in a water butt.
Sowing seed and propagating plants is an activity most gardeners find most satisfying, it also saves you money. Shelving and staging is therefore essential, and there is plenty to choose from the long list of Elite accessories.

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 > Additional Rear Single Door?
The Windsor comes with one sliding door as standard. This can be fitted into either gable end.
If you want to fit a second sliding door to the other gable end then please select from the following rear single door options, you can also choose to have Bar Capping.
