Aluminium Victorian Greenhouses
It might be Victorian in design but this is a greenhouse for the 21st Century. What used to be 2mm overlapping horticultural glass is now full sheet 4mm toughened safety glass which is safer and much easier to maintain. The attractive narrow pane centres have been maintained but today’s greenhouse does not require putty, instead the glass is cushioned against gasket providing an insulating quality against both temperature and sound. The forty-five degree roof pitch has not changed so the greenhouse still offers plenty of head height and cubic air capacity for your plants.
Like most Victorian greenhouses the slim glazing bars are supported at the ends and periodically along the length with strong portal frames. Typically, these portal frames are powder coated in an off white whilst the slim glazing bars compliment in a quartz grey. The door, wide enough for a wheelbarrow, can be hinged on the left or the right. At each end of the gable a hand turned finial painted to match the frame crowns the greenhouse.
