Ideal when space is at a premium, this 4'wide model still has good high eaves (5'4" incl alu base), which gives you plenty of headroom.Access is via two 1' wide sliding doors, and you can go up to twelve feet in length. 
Compared to other greenhouses, Simplicity greenhouses are manufactured in relatively small numbers here in the UK. Only a select few agents are given permission to sell these greenhouses. 
Most greenhouses do not include diagonal roof braces. Simplicity models come complete with 4 (or 2 on the smallest models). These useful additions dramatically improve the strength of the frame, plus they make the greenhouse easier to assemble because they make the greenhouse more inclined to go up square.
All prices for this model include a sturdy aluminum base 4" high, complete with anchors. The Alu base gives you a firm foundation which can be assembled on soil, slabs or concrete and makes the job of assembly quicker and easier
The unique Simplicity double box section corner bar gives the frame more rigidity than most other greenhouses. Along with the exclusive foam cushion glazing seal, this helps prevent loss of panes in windy weather. In our simple test, we were able to suspend 6 bags of cement (150kg) where as other makes of greenhouse were buckling with 50- 75 kg
Door wheels are made from nylon for hard wearing characteristics. The door wheel bolt is turned from solid brass with a smooth shank to reduce wear on the wheel. This costs us more than other ways of doing it, but we know how frustrating it can be if wheels disintegrate on your greenhouse after a few years- and spares can be hard to come by

We strongly recommend that you upgrade your glass to the toughened safety glass.

Toughened glass is about 7 times stronger than horti glass
When you upgrade to toughened glass you increase the strength of you glazing by up to 7x. As a rough guide - it may take a football (but not a cricket ball)
Toughened glass is far neater
The standard horticultural glass is is in small 2ft panes with overlaps between panes. these overlaps can become filled with dirt and algae in time and then it is hard to keep your greenhouse clean. When you upgrade to Toughened glass, we supply this in large panes with no overlaps between panes so your greenhouse looks better from the start and is far easier to keep on top of. Remember too that cleaner glass gives you more light transmittance which improves growth.
Toughened glass is safer.
Anyone can slip, trip or fall near a greenhouse and when you upgrade to toughened glass you do so with the peace of mind that when it does break it will disintegrate into thousands of smaller pieces rather than dangerous dagger -like shards. toughened glass is far less likely to cause injury than horti glass.
If you add nothing else, then do add the toughened glass, it’s a little more money of course, but in the long term you will be pleased that you chose it (and of course you can’t add it later)

  • Simplicity Bar Capping set (White) for Sandon 8ft

    Simplicity Bar Capping set (White) for Sandon 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.
