ANODISED SILVER FINISH ALUMINIUM: These greenhouses have anodised silver finish aluminium frames. Silver finish is the natural colour of aluminium before it is painted. It is cheaper than painted aluminum but just as strong and durable. Anodisation keeps the greenhouse frame looking clean by reducing the rate that the aluminium oxidises. Unpainted aluminium gradually oxidises, which appears as fine grey powder forms on the surface of the greenhouse. Oxidisation occurs quicker in areas of high pollution or in coastal areas. This is the aluminium's natural self protection and it does not harm the greenhouse.

HORTICULTURAL GLASS: Horticultural glass is the traditional glass for greenhouse glazing and it remains a cost effective option. Although brittle, glass is also rigid and it strengthens the aluminium frame. Glass is also heavy which helps to resist wind. Unless it is broken glass will not deteriorate unlike plastic alternatives which are easily scratched. Although polycarbonate is stable, styrene and perspex quickly lose their transparency. Horticultural glass is normally supplied in small panes up to 24" x 24". Because of this size limitation the glass panes are overlapped. Greenhouse glass is subject to lower visual standards than other more expensive glass and may include blemishes or imperfections which do not adversely affect the performance.

GREENHOUSE LOCATION: Ideally your greenhouse should have a clear space at least 18" wide on all sides, if possible. This ensures easy access for both installation and future maintenance. In reality this is often not practical and at many sites it is not needed. A reduced clearance is often possible on one or two sides. You should cut back or remove any nearby shrubs and trees. Remember to allow for future growth. Ideally the ridge of a greenhouse should run from east to west. The best position for a freestanding greenhouse is a sunny spot outside the shadow of nearby buildings and trees. A sheltered position is best otherwise additional screening may be advisable. Polycarbonate glazing is not recommended at exposed sites. Plants need plenty of water so your greenhouse should be close to a water supply and the site should be well drained.

SIZES - LENGTH AND WIDTH: Sizes are sometimes rounded to the nearest nominal size for ease of reading but the correct external wall sizes are listed alongside the price. The first dimension listed is the width and the second dimension is the length. The width refers to the angled gable walls at the front and rear including the door wall. The length refers to the side walls. All sizes are approximate.
