    Glazing

    Horticultural Glass

    Standard greenhouse glass supplied in 3mm thick overlapping sheets.

    Toughened Glass

    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.

    Polycarbonate

    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.
     
    Extra Roof Window
    Additional roof vents can be purchased for added ventilation, the drop down box will show the maximum available to fit your greenhouse. All extra roof vents are supplied with the correct glazing and are the same aluminium finish as your chosen frame.
     
    Auto Vent
    These are probably the most common accessory sold with greenhouses along with staging. Automatically opens the roof window according to temperature up to 18" to allow maximum ventilation, these are easily fitted with the supplied clamps and no drilling is required. Choose one for each window you wish to automatically open.
     
     
    5 Slat Staging
    Elite's super strong diamond aluminium staging which has been designed with the exact greenhouse in mind. This is a fixed staging which utilises cantilever bracing attached directly to the framework for extra stability and strength, the staging can be fixed at the height which is best for you and runs the full length of either the side or back of your greenhouse.The slatted design is ideal for fluid drainage and allows extra ventilation to any produce placed on the work surface.Aluminium to match your frame.
    19" wide.
     
     
    2 Slat Shelving
    Narrower than the staging but otherwise the same this shelving can be positioned at any height and adds extra working area in your greenhouse.Staging and shelves are supplied in easy to assemble kit form and will not rust, rot or deteriorate in humid greenhouse conditions. Aluminium to match the greenhouse frame.
    7 1/2" wide.
     
    Bar Capping
    Bar Capping adds a decorative finish for your greenhouse and also a much stronger hold for the glazing. The capping is used as well as the wire clips and is simply screwed over the bars and clips using the colour coded screws provided. Not only does this add extra protection for your greenhouse and is ideal for those in more exposed areas, but the rubber fin also makes a better water seal between the frame and the glass. Black is the recommended option for Aluminium frames.

    Not recommended with overlapping horticultural glass.
     
    Louvre
    Louvres provide low level ventilation and are an excellent accessory. Humid and stagnant air can cause condensation which develops mould and disease, by adding louvres to the rear or side of your building fresh air is drawn in and encourages circulation. These 5 blade aluminium louvres are supplied with toughened glass.
     
     
    Autolouvre
    These automatic louvre openers will open and close your louvre for you depending on the air temperature. You will need one Autolouvre for each louvre you wish to open automatically.
    Please note that some drilling is required to fit this accesory.
     
    Rainwater Kits
    You will be amazed at the amount of water that you can collect off a greenhouse roof, it would be a shame to waste it! These are designed to be used with Elite's unique half round gutter only and are available in 2 forms.
     

    Standard

    Each kit comprises of parts to fit one side of your greenhouse. One stopper is supplied to fit one end of your greenhouses built in gutter, for the other end connectors and pipe are supplied to make a rainwater downpipe which can then be fitted into a water barrel or simply to direct the water where you wish.
     

    To One Gutter

    This clever system connects both gutters to one side, similar in style to the standard system and supplied with an extra stopper and connectors for both gutters and a tranverse pipe which is placed along the rear of the greenhouse, this allows the water to be carried to a single point.
     
    Water Barrels
    Elite offer 2 sizes of water barrel to complement the rainwater kits, made from ridged moulded plastic choose from the standard 210 litre (46 gallons) or if space is limited choose the slimline 100 litre version.
    When fitted to the low cost stand or raised on bricks these allow access to the incorporated tap at the bottom of the barrel.
     
    Single Door in Rear
    Choose the option to have an extra single door in the rear of your building allowing you access from both ends. Matching aluminium this handy option allows you to walk straight through your greenhouse!.
     
     
    Soft Soil Support
    If putting your greenhouse on a soil or otherwise soft surface this extra will help to support the door opening. Persistently stepping on the door sill can cause damage if not on a hard standing as the metal will naturally follow the contour of the ground, use this to help prevent this happening. Aluminium finish.
     
    Cresting and Finials
    Create an individual and decorative finish to your greenhouse by adding these cresting and finials. Made from cast aluminium these are extremely strong and as well as looking great they also are a deterrent against birds and cats.
    Aluminium finish to match your greenhouse.
     
    Fly Screen Netting
    The Elite Fly Screen Netting enables you to have your greenhouse doors open for ventilation, whilst helping to keep out unwanted pests. This high quality fabric is PVC coated which is weather proof and tear proof, also has a high resistance to mildew even when rolled wet. Installation is simple and when not required it neatly rolls up above the door in seconds.
    Sizes available to fit all Elite doors we have priced this up to fit this greenhouse door(s).

    6x8 Elite High Eave Aluminium Finish
    Monday, 7 November 2016  |  Charles

    My greenhouse arrived on time with every last piece, including glass, in perfect condition.
    I opted to construct the greenhouse myself as I live too far away to qualify for 'team assembly'. Although it took me a few days to complete everything, self assembly has given me a sense of achievement!
    My only criticism is aimed at the assembly instruction book. This needs reviewing so that it better covers varying learning styles of customers, i.e a few more helpful pictures!
    I also purchased some grow hooks that can be easily locked in place in seconds, they are made of plastic, have an eye hole and clip.

    Greenhouse & Installation
    Saturday, 6 February 2016  |  David

    Quality appears very good and tough. We have only had this for 24 hours but we would recommend having the greenhouse installed by SW Greenhouses. We chose toughened glass and several extras. We are in an exposed position and the Elite looks ok. We hope for many years of use.

    We cannot fault all the advice that we got from Adrian before deciding on the Elite Greenhouse.
    Thought from choosing the greenhouse to installation process,the service was absolutely faultless.
