Extremely strong 8'5" x 10'7" Hercules Blenheim greenhouse package constructed using green powder coated aluminium. This package includes large pane toughened glass (incorporating a 18" sacrifice pane at the base of each side panel) retained by PVC bar capping as standard; double, key locking doors with a low threshold; three automatic roof vents; two side louvre vents; hanging basket rails both sides and guttering/downpipes on both sides (optional kit to join the gutter across the rear available).
Strength features include extra strong glazing bars in the rear gable, 'T' section cantilever braces in the eaves and roof, while the hanging basket rails also double as stabilising features.
The Hercules Blenheim has all the features that help create the perfect greenhouse environment. Of equal importance, the structure has been specially designed to withstand adverse weather conditions, especially the wind. The low level threshold, 4' wide double doors and optional Atlas staging system are all features that make the greenhouse ideal for wheelchair users.
Q. How strong is the toughened glass on the Hercules?
A. Should you have any questions please call us on 01782 398600. The Greenhouse People Toughened SAFETY Glass is approximately 2.9mm - 3.2mm thick and meets British Standards. Due to it's flexibility over Horticultural (Brittle) Glass it can be produced in large sheets and take impacts such as a football (NOT a Cricket ball or similar though) without breaking. If Toughened Safety Glass breaks it shatters into tiny pieces (about 6mm in diameter) which are much less likely to cause serious injury than the shards & points that Horticultural glass breaks into. Producers of toughened glass advertise that it is 5-6 times stronger than Horticultural Glass.
Q. do this greenhouse come with a base
A. Greenhouses with less metal in the main framework tend to need a metal base to add extra strength and rigidity to the whole structure. A base is simply not required on a Hercules due to the thickness of the extrusion and design of the building. This is one of the strongest greenhouses around, the frame will not twist and flex because it has no base. Not having to use a base is an advantage! You don?t have to step into the greenhouse, perfect for wheelchair or wheel barrow access.
Q. How is greenhouse fixed to the ground without a base? Wanting to put G/h directly onto soil?
A. A footing is required for this greenhouse, for example a concrete strip footing or a rim of paving slabs.

Love my new greenhouse, was going to go for a cheaper sliver colored one but glad i didn't. Its a good solid build with 3 openings and 2 vents and its a great size, i have 12/13 pots growing tomatoes and cucumbers on one side and 2 tables on the other side with plenty of room down the middle. The Greenhouse people were easy to contact, and delivered straight away a missing part and the delivery driver was a very nice man, i would deal with this company again without a doubt
Very good greenhouse. Second I've built, and you can really tell the improved quality in this one over the last one I built. Instructions were clear and the staff were helpful. Really pleased.
I can't really say much more than has already been said in all the rest of the reviews, all the staff are fantastic, and are extremely helpful be it on line or over the phone so well done to the greenhouse people you get my vote for excellant service all round although i would agree with mr monk that handles on the inside of the doors would be better, apart from that small detail a huge thank you for all your help and advice
what a wonderfully solid and stable greenhouse. it withstands very high fenland winds.hanging basket rails are a godsend and very sturdy, i have presently 5 14 inch baskets hanging down each side, alot of weight when fully watered. i agree with other reviews that the instructions are easy to follow and that it would be useful to indicate that glazing bars for the louvres and roof vents have to be cut to size - it would save alot of time not searching for the correct sizes! an excellent greenhouse, even though more expensive, well worth paying the extra for the quality. the greenhouse people staff were very obliging and efficient (i couldnt make up my mind which size to have and subsequently even changed my order). the delivery driver was most helpful and gave me a few tips on construction. excellent service and product.
Very impessed with all aspects of the order from the initial enquiry to the constructional of the greenhouse. The delivery of the order was delayed at my request until allthe groundworks were completed and it was delivered well packaged with a most helpful driver. It took two people 2 days to assemble and I am delighted with finisished product. The only suggestions for improvement would be: a) more emphasis on the number of bolts that MUST be inserted at each stage of assembly. b) more detail for the installation of louvres and vents. c) an internal handle for opening the sliding door. Overall a great experience and well woth the money. Rating 5/5.
