The Elite Compact comes with horticultural glass as standard as traditionally greenhouses have been glazed with this to keep costs low. Panes are 2ft x 2ft overlapping and joined with S clips.We recommend upgrading to toughened glass which is a much safer option. This is much stronger glass, better able to withstand damage from children playing ball or accidents when someone falls against the glass.A third option, polycarbonate, is also offered.
The Elite Compact greenhouse includes an integral aluminium base as part of the design. Aluminium is maintenance free, rustproof and immune to the warping and rotting that comes with wooden greenhouses. This not only provides an incredibly strong foundation but also allows your greenhouse to be erected simply onto firm, level soil – so there’s no need for an expensive concrete base. Once erected, ground anchors are concreted into position. The Elite Compact can also be erected onto a hardstanding of concrete or paving slabs, in which case the flat bottom lip is drilled and screwed down with the appropriate fixings. The Elite Compact includes a low threshold door, which removes the base from the doorway, leaving just a low guide for the door.
The Elite Compact 4x8 lean to comes with one roof vent.You can improve the ventilation further by adding low level louvre vents, as well as automatic roof vent openers.
The double sliding door with 2ft wide entry has a integral door catch to keep the door shut in high wind, or open when you need more ventilation.
Every Elite greenhouse that leaves the factory is made with care and attention to detail, and backed by a 10 year guarantee – so you know that you are buying a product that can be enjoyed for years to come.
