With a low ridge, the Windsor 4ft wide x 8ft Lean To from Elite can be positioned in many different locations around the garden. Adjacent to the house, against a shed or fence, you have to agree that it's a really adaptable greenhouse that will fit into most situations.
As with Elite's traditional greenhouses, the frame is built with rigid aluminium. It's maintenance free and will not warp or rust. You also have the choice of five powder coated finishes or silver milled aluminium.
Glazing is also a matter of personal preference. Horticultural is standard, but you can have toughened if the lean to is positioned against a household door or polycarbonate.
Positioned at either gable end, the sliding door means access is easy. Opened during hot weather, it combines with the roof vent to crate a helpful flow of air to keep the interior fresh and the plants healthy.
Bar capping that provides a finishing touch to the glazing and also secures it more firmly creating a water tight seal.
One of the great aspects of any Elite greenhouse is that you are allowed to choose from an impressive list of optional accessories, creating a greenhouse that perfectly fits your needs.
For example, if you want to re-cycle rainwater there's a kit that can be fitted to the integral gutter. This collects a precious commodity that your plants will much prefer to tap water.
Elite let you personalise the lean to with an imposing list of accessories. Shelving and staging are a must have if you propagate your own plants while the best selling Elite automatic roof vent opener will open and close the vent even when you are away from home. Air circulation can also be increased by the addition of a louvre.
Also why not forget about constructing your own base from bricks when you can have an alloy one that is colour co-ordinated with the frame.
This is a great opportunity to design your own bespoke lean to greenhouse, but a package version is available with many of the more popular accessories fitted as standard. Please note that the photographs 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.
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.
