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!
Toughened Safety Glass
Toughened Glass is much stronger than Horticultural glass and won't crack. If it does break it disintegrates into hundreds of small pieces that are unlikely to cause injury, unlike Horticultural Glass which breaks into shards. It's heavy weight also means it's the best glazing option for windy spots and the UK in general!
Full Length Glass (Long Pane)
Toughened Glass is long pane, meaning each panel in your greenhouse is one piece of glass. No unsightly overlaps where dirt and grime can collect and no Overlap Clips to worry about.
Curved Apex Roof
The attractive curved eaves are made from u/v protected acrylic panels which join the roof glass and the integral gutters. The Saturn is the only curved eaves 6ft wide greenhouse available to feature proper guttering to collect rainwater..
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!
