Greenhouse Base with Corner Posts (Optional)
Place on hard or even SOFT GROUND!
The usual golden rule when erecting a greenhouse is to place it on a hard and level surface so as to keep the greenhouse from twisting or becoming unstable over time.
If you want to install your greenhouse on soft ground then our optional Vitavia steel bases come with corner posts that you can bolt to the base. These posts are roughly 18 inches long and can be sunk into soil and then concreted in place once your greenhouse is level and square.
If you are intending to put your greenhouse on slabs or concrete then you simply don't attach the posts to the base, simple!
4mm Twin Wall Polycarbonate
4mm Twin Wall Polycarbonate Glazing is ideal for family gardens where safety is the No 1 priority. It's virtually unbreakable so kids and pets can play around near the greenhouse without risk of injury.
However if your greenhouse is in a windy or un-sheltered spot then we would advise you so consider a model with Toughened Safety Glass as its heavier and wont be blown out in high winds where polycarbonate might be.
PLEASE NOTE: 4mm Twin Wall Polycarbonate has an opaque appearance (see image above). If you require clear polycarbonate click here.
Green Powder Coated Frame
The green powder coated frame and optional base look great and protect the aluminium from weathering. Powder coating is a process where powdered paint is applied using an electrostatic charge to transfer the powder to the aluminium.
The aluminium is then heated to 200 degrees centigrade in special ovens which melt the powder and fuse it to the surface of the aluminium. This gives a durable and smooth coating when solidified. The powder coated frame or base now has a nice deep colour that is UV resistant with a life expectancy of over 25 years!
