Bringing back a Victorian style and modernising with present day features the Elite Thyme is a stunning greenhouse that would make an excellent feature in your garden. Each pane of glass is 1ft wide compared to the usual 2ft wide on most greenhouses, this not only gives a classic look to your greenhouse but also means there are twice the amount of glazing bars which makes an extremely strong building.

Packed with standard features such as integral base with low level threshold for ease of access, the extremely attractive crestings and finials that go along the length of the ridge that also have the added benefit of deterring birds, two 12" wide 5 blade louvres for low level air flow, cantilever bracing for strength, and 8ft diamond 2 slat staging.

The tall double sliding doors are on the 8ft 5" width and roof vents are supplied on each model. Supplied with either long pane toughened glass or polycarbonate.

Choice of Elite's high quality powder coated colours, all prices on this page are for painted accessories to match your greenhouse frame.

    Glazing

    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.

Choose one for each window you wish to automatically open.

    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. Choose to match your greenhouse colour or Black is universal and will match all colours.
     
     
    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 matching powder coated louvres are supplied with toughened glass.
     
     
    Autolouvre
