Standard greenhouse glass supplied in 3mm thick overlapping sheets.
Elite only use Grade A toughened glass to standard EN12150, this is long pane sheets for a neater finish and eliminates any overlapping which can have an algae and moss build up. Much stronger than horticultural glass these panes will granulate if broken removing the danger of serious injury.
Elite supply a quality 6mm UVI treated twin wall polycarbonate for the ultimate in safety. Supplied in full length sheets this is virtually unbreakable. As with all polycarbonate greenhouses we do not recommend this option in exposed areas. Please note Polycarbonate is opaque (slightly milky) and not clear like glass.
The most popular method is to lay a level flagged area. Please remember to build your slabs slightly bigger than the greenhouse size, as this gauge is only nominal and the product is actually a few inches bigger. For example, for an 8’x6’ greenhouse you might want to consider a slab area of 10’x8’ as this will allow you to position water barrels and will also allow enough room to get around the greenhouse to clean and maintain.
The majority of greenhouses are constructed onto a solid foundation however if your greenhouse is being constructed onto soil or grass, persistent stepping on the door cill will cause damage as it will naturally follow the contour of the ground. A hard support, such as flags, must be fitted under the cill and Elite recommend using their soft soil support which allows the door(s) to run in the track.
Hard or soft surface, Elite provide, as standard, both options to anchor the base down.
