Product Code: ELI-WIN-20
This is a fantastic opportunity to create your ideal greenhouse. The Elite Windsor 4ft x 20ft Lean To is already a magnificent structure, and you have the chance to equip it totally to your specifications.
Although very slim at 1.297 metres, its length creates plenty of working space and, with a low ridge, the lean to can be positioned in a wide variety of different places, against your house, a shed, even a fence.
Access is easy through a single sliding door that can be fitted at either end and will be made easier by fitting a further door. A low threshold can be installed so that the structure is wheelchair and wheelbarrow friendly.
Whatever glazing you prefer can be fitted, horticultural, polycarbonate or toughened, although the latter is necessary if the greenhouse is adjacent to your house through a doorway. Strong stainless steel clips fix the glazing in place and bar capping is available if you want to make it more secure and neater.
It isn't possible to locate the greenhouse on soil or grass, a base is required either constructed by yourself out of brick or slabs or using an Elite alloy base that will be a perfect fit and can be colour co-ordinated with the frame.
With all their experience, Elite know that air circulation within the greenhouse is important. That's why there's a roof vent already in place and a very popular louvre on their list of accessories. They can be both fitted with automatic openers, so useful if you spend any time away from home and want your plants to remain healthy.
With a greenhouse this size you must have a good amount of shelving and staging on which seed can be sown and plants propagated. Have look at the accessories list and you'll find so much to choose from in various styles and sizes.
And if, like most gardeners, you appreciate the value of re-cycling, a rainwater collection kit is a must have and can be easily fitted to the guttering.
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.
