The Compact 4x6 has 50% more floor area than a 4x4 for not much more cost - but is still well sized for smaller gardens. Robust and British made to high standards to see off less well made competitors and cheap imports, it boasts a wide doorway with no step to trip over and over 5’ eaves height for a surprisingly spacious gardening experience.
The built in aluminium base will sit on any flat, firm surface including level, compacted soil, removing the need to spend time, effort and money on bricks, blocks or slabs and the fear of rusting, rotting or warping like galvanised steel or wood.
An upgrade to safety glazing is strongly recommended to help protect children, pets – and also the gardener! You can also choose between 5 different maintenance free paint finishes to enhance and upgrade the appearance of your Compact into an attractive garden feature.
One ‘essential’ extra is a heat activated autovent opener – this will give you flexible and automatically controlled roof ventilation, especially if combined with an optional side louvre vent. Add to this a huge choice of accessories (including the exclusive Rhino range of staging and shelving) and you can custom build your perfect greenhouse!

INTEGRAL ALUMINIUM BASE.
The most modern design featuring heavy duty aluminium sections to which the rest of the frame directly attaches to become an integrated part of the structure. The result is a harmonious and strong design which comfortably supports its own weight so that it can be directly placed on clear, firm, level soil.
Greenhouses with this feature are so strong that they remove the extra expense and effort of laying bricks, blocks or concrete which weaker designs are obliged to have. On many models a 'no trip' low door threshold can also be included which gives easy wheelbarrow and disabled access.
Maintenance free, rustproof and immune from the warping and rotting associated with wood, on soil it is held in position by ground anchors which are concreted in place. On a hardstand, the flat bottom lip is drilled and screwed down with appropriate fixings.

Plain aluminium finish. Natural aluminium colour - bright and shiny initially but gradually gains an oxidised top layer to give a familiar 'matt' apperance to the greenhouse framework.
Green powdercoated finish. Lustrous, permanent colour which is maintenance free and highly resistant to marking and chipping. Finish is applied via a lengthy, painstaking process which literally bonds the colour to the metal. Be aware that some cheaper, often imported, models shortcut the process for cost reasons resulting in a less durable finish.
Elite Support PlateRecommended where the greenhouse is to be erected on soil - supports the cambered door cill on low threshold door models. Not needed where the greenhouse will be sited on a hard-standing such as concrete or slabs.
