Simplicity Classic Plain Aluminium Greenhouse Starter Package
6ft3 wide (1920mm) x 8ft3 long (2538mm)



Simplicity

This is the ideal starter greenhouse, and is now rapidly outselling the Halls Popular due to its superior strength and larger range of options including bar capping.

The Simplicity Classic has better  features such as quality door wheels which have a turned brass centre with ball bearings for longer life and smooth running.

Box section corner bars, gutters and ridge ensure good performance in high winds. Many customers also prefer the Classic over the Halls Popular because it has better quality vents, door wheels, draught excluders and quality stainless steel band clips to hold the glass in.

What's more you can also upgrade to the bar capping system which eliminates clips completely from your greenhouse- Glass will then be held in along it's full length with matching PVC capping- providing a far neater finish and superior strength in windy conditions.

Please note that we are INCLUDING the galvanised base in the price sometimes retailers price the base as an optional extra  but most customers need the galvanised base as it removes the need for a brick plinth.  Just sit the greenhouse straight onto slabs or soil (soil anchors included add the concrete anchoring kit for slabs or concrete)

Q. With full sheet toughened glass, if I have extra louvres will I need to cut the glass to make them fit?

A. No, you won't have to do that. We automatically adjust the toughened glass for you, it is quite often the case that extra louvres and vents are added. You will have the correct glass delivered.


Q. What is the height of the base unit without the legs?

A. 100mm


Q. Please can you tell me what size base I would need to have this greenhouse placed on, is it fully sealed with having a metal base, do you errect and if so what would be the total cost for supply & errect. Thanks Mike

A. As a minimum foundation for the Simplicity Classic Mill 68 **Mill Package**, you wold require 7'x 9' paving slabs. The metal base would be fixed to the foundations with rawlplugs and screws. All customers that order a greenhouse from us receive a list of approved greenhouse fitters. The approx. cost of fitting on a pre-existing level foudation would be expected to be around £175.


Q. How long is delivery on this greenhouse?

A. Delivery is currently 3-5 weeks, but is more likely to be 3 than 5. We will contact you before delivery to confirm an exact date with you. (Sep 2015)

Generally very pleased with final product. Few niggles! Found that sealing strip was not quite enough. Could have done with a few meters more.Also receieved wrong cills for louvre - not cut properly. However excellent support given by James Spooner meant replacements sent out promptly. Also bit mean with nuts and bolts. Fortunately had some spare from greenhouse I had many years ago.Glad I purchased plastic glazing strips because I found the metal clips I tried in a couple of places to be less than effective! Found assembly instructions or should I say pictures geneally very clear however found base leaflet somewhat confusing...although all info there...somewhere..

  • Metal base (plain metal finish) (more information)

    Metal base (plain metal finish)

     

    Traditionally,greenhouses always used to sit on a little brick plinth.Now however, most of the greenhouses in our range can be fitted with a metal base.This means that you can fix the greenhouse straight onto either a concrete foundation or one made of concrete slabs. Greenhouse manufacturers make various types of metal base.Using our experience of installing greenhouses we decided to offer our customers a base design that incorporates all the best features of these bases but which is simple to install and much stronger in order to achieve an improved life-span.
    Our galvanised metal bases include anchor legs in each corner,more on greenhouses of 10?length and above.This design allows you to anchor your greenhouse straight into the soil by digging a hole in the ground under each anchor leg and then use concrete to secure the legs into the ground. However, while this method maybe satisfactory,we would strongly advise that you should always have a solid concrete or paving slab foundation under your greenhouse, especially if it is larger than 6?by 8?.
    Features of our metal bases:
    ? Made from steel for strength and galvanised to prevent rust.
    ? Neater finish (as pictured) since the outside face is smooth.
    ? Complete with an anchor leg in each corner, plus extra legs on longer models for anchoring into soil.
    ? Brackets are provided to fix the metal base to the greenhouse frame making it much easier to install the greenhouse because less drilling is required.
    ? Guaranteed for 10 years - for peace of mind.
    ? Full instructions included.

  • Plain aluminium finish
  • Toughened safety glass (full sheet) (more information)

    Toughened glass

    Toughened glass is approx 700% stronger than horticultural glass, so it is far harder to break. When it does break, it disintegrates into hundreds of tiny pieces, so it is far safer than horticultural glass ( which can form dangerous daggers of glass when broken)

    However, the main reason that the toughened glass is now so popular is that it is supplied in large sheets- This means that there are no overlaps between the panes (with normal horticultural glass, you get a 10mm overlap between every pane, these fill up with dirt and algae and become unsightly) With large pane toughened glass, you get a greenhouse that looks far neater, is easier to keep clean, and of course is safer.

    Free 10 Year Guarantee

    Your new greenhouse is designed to give you enjoyment for many years. For piece of mind, all our greenhouses have a free 10-year frame guarantee. This valuable guarantee against any manufacturing faults also extends to your choice of metal base and powdercoated coloured finish.

  • 1 x roof vent with Automatic opening. (more information)

    1 x roof vent (automatic opening)

    The roof vents on this greenhouse open automatically. They don't require batteries, working from heat expansion alone. 

    A cylinder filled with a special wax expends with heat, driving a piston and opening the vent for you. 

    They can be adjusted to open  more or less according to what environment you need to create in the greenhouse.

    Propably the best ever invention for greenhouses, they help prevent overheating, scorching and wilting - a must for any greenhouse!

  • 1 x Louvre vent
  • Bar capping option available
  • Installation available for a fee (more information)

    Installation available for a fee

    We have over 30 independent installers that cover the whole of the UK. We will send you full details of these fitters in our ‘Advice’ booklet just after you place your order. All greenhouses are delivered flat packed for self-assembly, so fitting charges would be paid directly to your independent fitter. Most greenhouses are not too difficult to erect but they do take some time. You should budget a weekend for your average greenhouse. With every order we do send you a list of professional greenhouse installers in your area who you can contact directly should you require the greenhouse erecting for you. We recommend that if you use an installer you do so on a fixed price basis. Never use your landscaper or builder to erect a greenhouse on a day rate - you will just be paying them to learn how to do it. Generally speaking, if you mention the model name of your greenhouse and the fitter does not know a fixed price, then they are the not the best fitter for the job. Please call us if you are unsure and we will give you advice on the best fitter for your greenhouse and location. We are often asked the cost. This depends, on how good the base is, which greenhouse it is you're ordering and what accessories you are ordering. The average price quoted for a 6x8 greenhouse is approximately £200 - £300, and for an 8'x10' £300 - £400 is an average price.

  • Simplicity Auto louvre opener

    More information
    £32.00

    Simplicity Auto louvre opener


    This mechanical device is designed to automatically open and close a louvre vent, in response to temperature. A wax-like substance, contained in the cylinder, expands with heat, operating a piston which opens the louvre via a linkage arm. As the temperature falls, the process reverses, and a spring closes the louvre. There is also an adjustment knob, which enables the opening temperature to be altered to between 15 and 25 degrees centigrade.

    Some simple drilling is required to fit the opener to the side of the louvre vent.

    Made from sturdy aluminium, the frame supports 1" deep aluminium trays. All the trays have a double folded edge, for safety.

    £89.00

    Simplicity Bar Capping set (White) for Classic 8ft


    This capping will only fit Simplicity brand greenhouses

    IMPORTANT: Bar Capping will only fit toughened glass, it will not fit normal horticultural glass. 
    All glass on this model is held in place with stainless steel clips. These are fine, but they can show up against a green frame and your glass can sometimes be a bit vulnerable in high winds. So now you can replace these clips with the optional bar capping System.This is a set of full length PVC strips which hold the glass along the full length.This gives a far neater finish plus it is a lot easier to keep clean because the clips are no longer used. Your whole greenhouse is stronger in the wind when bar capping is used. The capping is a similar shape to the stainless steel clip and it clips in,in a similar way- the difference being that the PVC is the full length e.g. 5' long).You can only use bar capping with the whole sheet toughened glass.
