An ideal greenhouse for a long, but narrow space, the 4'2" x 12'4" Simplicity Sandon is a strong plain aluminium greenhouse, glazed (as standard) with small-pane horticultural glass. Toughened glass and bar capping option are available. The basic specification includes a strong, aluminium, 4" high plinth base; four manual roof vents and double doors. Each of the two doors is 1' wide giving a 21" wide aperture when fully open. Also, when open, the doors do not project beyond the sides of the greenhouse.
This UK made greenhouse has an eaves height of 5'3" giving good headroom and is designed with numerous features to make sure that it can stand up to adverse weather conditions. These include rigid gutters and corner bars which incorporate box section strengthening, four roof braces and the strong aluminium base suitable for fixing directly onto the soil or concrete/slab foundations. The nylon door wheels on this model have brass axles which give the wheels a long, smooth running life.
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)
