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 8ft x 16ft Elite Thyme greenhouse with it`s 8ft 5" width is a stunning greenhouse with traditional looks and beautiful Victorian design features. The greenhouse comes complete with roof crestings and finials and 12" wide glass panels to complete the traditional styling.

The Thyme 8x16 Greenhouse benefits from a sturdy high quality aluminium frame with bracing and strengthening on every other bar throughout. The double sliding doors have an integral door catch to keep the door shut in high winds or open when you need more ventilation. New features for 2013 include a door handle and a proper key lock for security. It features the Elite Low Threshold Base giving a safe and practical entry for you and all of your gardening bits and bobs.

The Elite Thyme has 12" wide glass panels that give a lovely traditional look but add enormous strength to the greenhouse. This is because there are more glazing bars in the sides and roof with a cantilever support on every other bar in the eaves and roof for added strength.

Elite toughened safety glass gives you peace of mind where children and pets are present and safety is top of the list. Toughened glass simply granulates if broken removing any danger of injury from shards of glass. This Elite Thyme Greenhouse 8 x 16 has 4 opening roof vent and 2 louvre vents for ventilation, a double sliding door with key lock and integral gutters to collect rain water.

Customize your new Thyme greenhouse by having it powder coated in one of 5 colour finishes or simply add bar capping for a splash of colour. We highly recommend adding the optional bar capping as it also secures your greenhouse glass within the frame making your greenhouse especially windproof.
