Often a narrow, long greenhouse is better for growing than a more square building. If the side of the greenhouse is going to be south facing, the extra length of the greenhouse will make maximum use of the sun.
The 4' x 12' Simplicity Sandon is superb for such a situation. The high ridge at 6'10" makes it comfortable to work in and the high eaves provides plenty of room for plants, too.
Like all Simplicity greenhouses, the corner bars and gutters are constructed from double box section aluminium to add rigidity to the greenhouse. Four diagonal roof braces help stiffen the greenhouse as well.
As standard the greenhouse comes with an aluminium base (often not included in the price). It also has stainless steel glazing clips which are long lasting with the option of upgrading to toughened glass and bar capping.
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)
