OUR BEST SELLING POLYCARBONATE GREENHOUSES: These great value aluminium greenhouses have been our best selling polycarbonate greenhouses for many years. Twinwall polycarbonate and green powder coated aluminium are normally expensive extras but these affordable metal greenhouses include both at sensationally cheap prices. The precise manufacturing and careful packing is a match for our most expensive greenhouses. The competitive price and polycarbonate glazing makes this aluminium greenhouse a popular choice with first time buyers, the elderly and families with children or pets.
TWIN WALL POLYCARBONATE: Twin wall polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable and very practical. With small children or pets around polycarbonate greenhouses are safer. Polycarbonate is also safer to handle during installation. Polycarbonate greenhouses provide a similar growing environment to glass greenhouses with better insulation properties and reduced glare. Polycarbonate also provides good insulation from frost and maintains a more even temperature for better plant growth. Twin wall polycarbonate also diffuses light to prevent scorching. Twin wall polycarbonate glazing is stronger than the flimsy single skin polycarbonate sheeting supplied with some greenhouses.
POWDER COATED ALUMINIUM: The powder coated finish is more attractive than the stark silver finish aluminium greenhouses. The tough finish also has excellent weathering properties and retains its gloss and colour superbly. A good example of powder coating is the finish on your washing machine. Powder coated aluminium greenhouses have a similar finish.
BASE REQUIREMENTS: As with many metal greenhouses, this aluminium greenhouse is designed to overhang a base plinth which is above the ground and made to the correct external base size. A suitable metal base is available as a low cost option. An alternative base can be made using timber, metal, bricks or concrete. It should be made to the same size as the base plinth. The greenhouse cills are designed to overhang the base. In addition, the front cill is a guide for the sliding door. If this greenhouse is placed directly on an oversized patio the door will not open.
GREENHOUSE LOCATION: Ideally your greenhouse should have a clear space at least 18" wide on all sides, if possible. This ensures easy access for both installation and future maintenance. In reality this is often not practical and at many sites it is not needed. A reduced clearance is often possible on one or two sides. You should cut back or remove any nearby shrubs and trees. Remember to allow for future growth. Ideally the ridge of a greenhouse should run from east to west. The best position for a freestanding greenhouse is a sunny spot outside the shadow of nearby buildings and trees. A sheltered position is best otherwise additional screening may be advisable. Polycarbonate glazing is not recommended at exposed sites. Plants need plenty of water so your greenhouse should be close to a water supply and the site should be well drained.
SIZES - LENGTH AND WIDTH: The external wall sizes are listed alongside the price. The first dimension listed is the width and the second dimension is the length. The width refers to the angled gable walls at the front and rear including the door wall. The length refers to the side walls.

GREENHOUSE ACCESSORIES - ALWAYS IN STOCK: As a specialist greenhouse supplier, established since 1981, we pride ourselves on supplying more options and accessories than other suppliers. All of our greenhouse accessories are always in stock all the time. Many accesories are only available when you buy the greenhouse and not available separately. However, we always make an exception for one of our customers - if you purchased your greenhouse from us we will always supply any accessory you need at any time, even many years afterwards.
BASE PLINTH: The base plinth makes installation much easier. It is designed to be a portable and prefabricated foundation beam. The plinth features a flat underside to spread the weight of the greenhouse over a larger area. The base plinth can be placed on any flat and level surface including soil, gravel, decking, concrete or paving slabs. It is best to prepare a perimeter footing of concrete or paving slabs for the base plinth to stand on. However, with care the base plinth can be placed on any surface including soil or gravel provided that the ground is flat and level.
BASE PLINTH - SAVE POUNDS: The base plinth is much cheaper if you buy it with the greenhouse compared with the price you pay to buy it later. This is because of transport costs. It is much cheaper for us to deliver everything you need in one delivery. Around 19 out of 20 people buy the base plinth so it is worth thinking about this before you order. If you need advice you can phone us 7 days a week on 01603 721590.
BASE ANCHOR FIXING KITS - FOR SOIL OR CONCRETE: This kit makes it easy to fix your greenhouse down securely into concrete, paving slabs, decking or even soil. The brackets are profiled to grip the inside of the greenhouse base plinth with fixing holes on the inside. The brackets are fixed from inside the greenhouse with coach screws fixed down into the concrete, paving slabs or decking. If you want to site your greenhouse on soil you will need a concrete trench around the perimeter or smaller pockets of concrete into which the brackets can be fixed. You can fix the base plinth down with screws and wall plugs but it is much easier with our profiled brackets. Fixing the greenhouse down is recommended at all sites. The kit includes:
- Profiled anchor brackets - shaped to grip the inside of the greenhouse base plinth, with predrilled fixing holes
- Masonry drill bit - used to drill the correct size hole in concrete or paving slabs
- Zinc plated coachscrews - supplied complete with washers and plugs to ensure a neat easy fit
VENTILATION: Improved ventilation increases the air circulation through the greenhouse for better growing results. Automatic openers react to heat which ensures that in hot weather the vents open in your absence and then close again when its cooler. Louvred ventilators provide a healthy air flow through the greenhouse to ensure improved growing conditions and better crops. Some plants such as alpines require more ventilation than others. If you are not yet sure which plants you are likely to grow improved ventilation will give you more versatility.
HEATERS: We offer a huge range of heaters so whatever your specific requirements we have a heater to do the job. Our electric heaters require a standard domestic 13 amp electricity supply. Our propane gas heaters require permanent trickle ventilation when in use. As an approximate guide, a 3kw heater will heat a greenhouse up to 8'x12' or provide frost protection only up to 10'x15' in normal site conditions. A 1.5kw heater will normally heat a greenhouse up to 6'x8' or provide frost protection only up to 6'x12'. Internal partitions are often used in large greenhouses to create a smaller warm room which is cheaper and easier to heat.
HEATING REQUIREMENTS: Heating requirements vary for several reasons. Location is one factor with more heating required in Scotland than in southern England and less heating required in a sheltered position. The design is also a factor. For example, dwarf walls improve the insulation and lean to greenhouses absorb warmth from the existing wall. Another factor is the materials used. Polycarbonate greenhouses retain heat better than glass and wooden greenhouses retain heat better than metal greenhouses. We recommend you to buy a bigger heater than you need - you can always turn it down.
POLYPROPYLENE FLOOR TILES: A durable polypropylene floor or footpath is an affordable alternative to slabs or concrete. Easy to install within a few minutes, these interlocking polypropylene pavers simply click together with no fixings needed. Unlike slabs or concrete these pavers are lightweight, easy to install and fully relocatable. Designed to spread weight, the finished floor is capable of supporting 36 tonnes per square metre. First the ground is levelled and then the pavers are laid directly on the soil. The pavers can also be laid on grass, sand or gravel. The finished floor or footpath is self draining and suitable for wheelbarrows and wheelchairs. It fits comfortably inside the greenhouse with a few inches to spare. The tiles are easily prised apart by folding so the floor is even quicker to remove if required.

Thankyou for all your help tracking it down, excellent communication!
Will contact you when it is time to up grade- if this one earns its keep then the next one should be a proper wooden greenhouse.

EXTRA NOTE:- THIS CUSTOMER REQUESTED A REPLACEMENT DOOR WHEEL ON 15th SEPTEMBER 2008 IN AN EMAIL WHICH IS REPRODUCED BELOW:
Hi, I refer to order number (NUMBER). I have had the greenhouse since March this year and I am delighted with it but a part of it has broken and I need a replacement. The part I need is the small wheel which acts as a runner for the top of the sliding door. It is about 20mm in diameter. There are 2 of them supplied originally but one of them is now broken.
Would it be possible for you to supply a replacement?
Just assembled my greenhouse. Everything went well and I am completely satisfied. But I do need some advice all the same. Whilst assembling and fitting the polycarb glass, with my good wife helping, unfortunately she removed all the plastic protective sheets not noticing that the side with the UV protective coating should be assembled on the outside. We have now no way of knowing which side goes outward. We looked to see if it was noticeable i.e. any difference from one side to the other, but could not tell which side was treated so have now assembled the glass into the greenhouse. Do you know of any UV protection paint that can be applied to the outside now that it has been assembled.
