All cultivar greenhouses are available with integral cold frames which can be placed on either side of the structure down the length. The cold frames have a hinged lid which, like the greenhouse, is glazed in toughened safety glass. The sides and the front of the cold frame are boarded in attractive Accoya wood which is held securely within our powder coated aluminium framework. The greenhouse side to which the cold frame is attached should have low level boarding to allow the cold frames to be secured to the greenhouse. Should you desire, it is possible to have the cold frame sides and front glazed, just ask. The lid can be held open with a neat aluminium stay which is provided to give ventilation to the cold frames. Optionally the lids can be folded back to rest against the greenhouse. The cold frames are designed to have one lid per greenhouse panel, so a four panel long greenhouse as pictured (which is almost 10 ft 5) would have four cold frame lids. Each lid being approximately 750mm wide (approx 2 ft 6).
Ordinarily the side on which the coldframes are to be positioned would have the low level ventilation removed and replaced with manual vents at eaves level (as pictured).
