WHY THE RHINO CLASSIC?
Adequate ventilation is absolutely crucial to successful growing under glass. There is not another greenhouse on the market that has more ventilation than a Rhino. Better still, it's all included in the price.
Each Rhino Classic includes a much larger ventilated area than other greenhouses in its class. All the roof vents are controlled by solar-powered automatic vent openers.
The high-quality Rhino five-blade louvre vents allow you to take complete control of your ventilation, allowing cool air to enter from the side, circulate up through the greenhouse forcing air to escape through the roof vents.
Traditionally, greenhouses have been supplied with 3mm horticultural glass. It may be cheap but it isn’t safe, as it breaks easily. An improvement on this is toughened 3mm glass but this doesn’t come close to the strength and quality of our Rhino Tuff glass.
Rhino Tuff 4mm toughened safety glass is 33% thicker than most greenhouse glass and comes as standard with every Rhino greenhouse. Even the edges of the glass are rounded so that you don’t cut yourself during installation.
The unique Rhino glazing system locks each pane of glass in place along its entire length. This means that each pane becomes an integral part of the strength of the whole frame, in contrast to other greenhouses that use a glass capping simply to conceal the usual ‘W’ clip as a cosmetic improvement. The glass cannot be blown or sucked out of the frame and pushing on the glass only locks the beads more tightly into the frame.
Keep yourself and your family safe.
We wouldn’t sit on the roof if a Rhino wasn’t so strong! Indeed, it’s why we named them Rhino. The Rhino Classic enjoys heavy duty glazing bars and tubular section bracing throughout.
Each Rhino frame has around 60% more aluminium than similarly priced models. But it’s not just the weight, it’s the clever design of the Rhino that provides its inherent strength.
Rhinos currently inhabit much of the UK, including windy corners from Cornwall to Scotland, and further afield in the Falklands.
Customers have told us that they’ve withstood winds of 137mph – could there be a better test?
Every Rhino greenhouse includes a strong aluminium base in the price, which not only provides an incredibly strong foundation but also allows the Rhino to be erected simply onto firm, level soil – so there’s no need for an expensive concrete base. Once the Rhino is erected, strong stainless steel ground anchors are concreted into position.
The Rhino can also be erected on a hardstanding of concrete or paving slabs, in which case the stainless steel anchors are fixed using the fixings provided.
All Rhino greenhouses now include a low threshold door and ramp within the price. There’s no longer a trip hazard at the doorway and on 8, 10 and 12ft wide models there is plenty of width for a wheelchair or wheelbarrow to enter with ease.
Every Rhino greenhouse comes with two hanging basket rails.
The roof is so strong that it can easily handle this extra load, and it’s a really useful feature. Your hanging baskets will thrive and it will also free up lots of space on your staging.
Every Rhino greenhouse also comes with large integral gutters as well as downpipes and bends so you can collect and use the natural rainwater that your plants love.
There is an optional two-in-one kit available at an extra cost which joins the two pipes at the rear of the greenhouse and allows both gutters to feed into one water butt.
Nothing says more about the quality of a Rhino greenhouse than our 25 Year Guarantee.
A generation of gardeners can rest assured that the frame and even the powder coated colour finish are covered, in the unlikely event that the greenhouse fails.
