We are committed to Low Prices.

Product Code: ELI-WIN-16
The Windsor 4ft x 16ft Lean To is very adaptable due to its low ridge height and has a strong aluminium frame that is maintenance free, you now have to equip it to your own specifications.
A bespoke greenhouse is the dream of many gardeners and Elite allow you to fulfil that ambition, choosing from their extensive list of optional accessories.
Fitted as standard is a single sliding door. It's no problem to fit it at either gable end, or in fact to install a further door. Both can be adjusted to have a low threshold, making access even easier.
The frame itself won't warp or rust, you can leave it as silver milled aluminium or choose a powder coating that can come in a number of colours.
There is also a choice of glazing. Horticultural can be upgraded to polycarbonate or toughened that should be fitted if the lean to can be entered directly from your house.
If you want to secure the glazing with more than standard clips, then choose bar capping. This also creates a water resistant seal between the glazing and the frame.
The greenhouse cannot be placed directly on to soil or grass, so the next decision is to either build a base from bricks or slabs or install an alloy one that fits perfectly and can be the same colour as the frame.
For healthy, thriving plants the greenhouse needs adequate air circulation. Elite fit an air vent as standard but you can choose to also have a five blade louvre. Fit automatic openers and you can leave the greenhouse, knowing that the interior temperature and humidity will be well controlled.
Water conservation is increasingly seen as an important. A rainwater collection kit would therefore seem to be an excellent idea. Fitted to the gutter, the rainwater can be stored in a butt ready to be re-cycled.
Shelving and staging is clearly important, enabling you to sow seed, propagate and pot them on. Look at the list of Elite accessories and you find a wide choice of different widths and lengths.
Please note that the photographs illustrate various sized Windsor 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 > 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.
