Low Threshold Base

Elite Low Threshold Greenhouse Base

The Low Threshold Base is unique to Elite Greenhouses. It allows you easy access with wheelbarrows and wheelchairs without having to build a ramp. No more tripping over a greenhouse base when carrying plant trays as the entry is at ground level.

Door Handle and Key Lock

Elite Door Lock and Key

Elite Greenhouses now have a handy door handle to make opening your greenhouse easy as well as a proper key lock for security in your garden or on the allotment.

Integral Gutters

Elite Integral Gutters

You’ll find proper gutters on Elite greenhouses rather than narrow channels. These are more effective at gathering up rainwater for your water butt and less likely to get blocked up with leaves.

Diamond Shelving and Staging - Optional

Elite Integral Gutters

The superb Diamond shelving and staging is designed specifically to fit into Elite greenhouses. It’s rigid and hard wearing and built to last. The Staging is supported by cantilever bracing so there are no legs to get in the way. This leaves space underneath to grow plants, store pots and makes using the greenhouse for wheelchair users completely practical. Both staging and shelving can be colour coded to match your new greenhouse.

The Elite Compact 4x8 Greenhouse will get you growing in a little corner of your garden. New features for 2013 include a door handle and a proper key lock for security.

The 6mm twin wall polycarbonate glazing gives awesome insulation as the panels have silvered edges meaning that they are completely sealed. Because they are sealed they will not fog up inside with condensation. Of course polycarbonate is the safest glazing of all and is ideal for family gardens, schools and nurseries where children are running around. This Elite Compact 4 x 8 has a single opening roof vent for ventilation, a double sliding door and integral gutters to collect rain water.

6: Bar Capping

Bar Capping fits over the wire clips that hold your glass in the greenhouse frame. Not only does bar capping look good, it also makes your greenhouse very easy to keep clean.
