Elite Windsor 4ft x 6ft 'Low Ridge' Lean To Greenhouse
We are committed to Low Prices.
If you find any of our products on the price promise pages advertised, and in stock and immediately available, at any of our competitors we will endeavour to match the price.
Product Code: ELI-WIN-6
A Windsor 4ft wide x 6ft lean to is ideal to be located against a shed, garage or fence as it has low ridge height, although this in no way detracts from its usefulness as a greenhouse.
The frame is built from the same high quality rigid aluminium as Elite's traditional greenhouses, it will not warp or rust and is maintenance free. Many manufacturers restrict you to two, maybe three colours but Elite let you choose between silver milled aluminium and five other powder coated colours.
You can also choose the type of glazing you prefer. It can be horticultural, polycarbonate or toughened. The latter is a legal necessity if the lean to is fitted over a doorway.
The single sliding door can be positioned at either gable end. Open it during the summer and it will, in conjunction with the roof vent, encourage a cooling flow of air that plants love.
If you want to re-cycle rainwater, an aluminium gutter is already in place adding strength and also allowing you to install the optional rainwater collection kit. Plants prefer rainwater to what comes out of the tap, so it's really worthwhile. Bar capping comes as standard. It would be wrong to see it as just a decorative feature. With it in place, the glazing is more secure and there is a better water seal between that and the frame.
Elite let you personalise the lean to with an impressive list of accessories, extras that really make it your own. Staging and shelving are necessary if you like to sow seed and propagate plants, while the popular Elite automatic roof vent opener will save you the trouble of opening and closing it each day. This is so useful if you are away from home or on holiday.
A base of some sort is essential. You could construct one yourself from slabs or bricks but it's more convenient to buy an Elite alloy base. The base can also then be colour co-ordinated to match the rest of the lean to.
Please note that the photographs show both standard features that are listed below and optional accessories that can be purchased separately. A Package version is also available with many of the accessories fitted as standard.

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.
