    Thermofor 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.

    Hand made by us in our Staffordshire workshop, trade enquiries welcome from all around the world

    Simplicity Bar Capping set (Old Cottage Green) for Classic 8ft
    Bar Capping

    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.

    Simplicity Old Cottage Green metal greenhouse base 6ft x 8ft (1920mm x 2538mm) Upgrade

    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.

Simplicity

Introducing the Simplicity Classic - the greenhouse brand trusted by gardeners for over 30 years. Founded in approximately 1990, Simplicity has a rich history of expert craftsmanship and design, which is reflected in the exceptional quality and value of the Classic model.

As the Greenhouse People's in-house brand, Simplicity offers unbeatable value as you are buying directly from the manufacturer - no middlemen involved. This means we can pass on the best possible prices to you, while maintaining our commitment to top-quality materials and construction.

The Simplicity Classic is built to last, featuring our unique double box section corner bars that make for a stronger frame, enabling the Classic to stand up better than similar greenhouses in windy conditions. Stainless steel band clips are far superior to wire ‘w-clips’ found on other greenhouses, and you also have the option to do away with clips altogether and upgrade to the PVC bar capping system as a replacement for the clips entirely.

The powder-coated Old Cottage Green finish and plain metal base provide durability, while full-sheet toughened safety glass ensures safety for you and your plants.

The Classic also features a sliding door for easy access, roof vents for temperature and humidity regulation, and an option for bar capping for a stronger, neater finish. With quality door wheels and draught excluders, the Simplicity Classic sets itself apart from other models.

As a testament to our confidence in the Simplicity Classic's longevity and quality, we offer a free 10-year guarantee on all our Simplicity models.

Choose Simplicity and join the thousands of satisfied gardeners who have trusted us for over 30 years.

A. You will need to fix the galvanised steel base of the greenhouse to the slab foundation with rawlplugs and screws.

What a great organisation - Ordering was made really easy as I spoke to Debbie in sales and she talked me through all the options and set up delivery to an Allotment site. The process was simple, paid a deposit and when I was ready for delivery it was tracked all the way so that I could me the Delivery guy at site who was incredibly helpful. All came packed well and easily labelled. Never had a Greenhouse before, went for the Simplicity Ulitmate in Green. My partner and I just took our time over a couple of weekends to put together and my guidance is read the manual a few times and download material to help from The Greenhouse People website and just take your time. We absolutely ove our new place for all the things we wish to grow this year....Thanks

Delivery was fantastic and so well stacked against the house. It’s my second from this company due to moving and putting the second one together was so easy. Excellent

The greenhouse arrived on time with all parts, driver unloaded it and helped carry it to temporary storage area. It took me just over 2 days to build, including time spent ferrying it in 3-4 trips to the allotment about a 10 min drive away. I mainly built it solo, just a couple of hours help needed to glaze the roof. Working as a team of two would be a lot quicker. Generally speaking it was straight forward, the instructions are OK but they're almost entirely drawings, a little bit of explanatory text would have helped. However, anyone used to putting flat pack furniture together should be fine. It seems sturdy and has survived a few windy days on an exposed site, I think it'll last well.

The package arrived a lot earlier than first expected, so I had to bring forward my planned schedule of doing the groundwork etc, which I was pleased about! Delivery driver kindly deposited all the parts into the back garden. As a token gesture, he was gifted a jar of honey from my bee hives in the garden! All the parts were present and although I studied the instructions sheets online over a couple of days to get my head around them, I found the assembly a lot easier than I anticipated. It was like a big 'meccano' set. I purchased the toughened glass and felt confident in handling and fitting it. It took me 2 full days to assemble. I have since purchased another set of Babbington staging and this was delivered promptly with no issues. I am really pleased with the quality and look of the greenhouse and have had several positive comments from family and neighbours.

Once we had made our choice, purchasing was easy and we were able to put our order on hold and schedule delivery for a convenient time. The recommended installers (Phil and Darren) completed the job in a couple of hours - they were great. We’re very happy with the greenhouse we now have, it’s everything we hoped it would be, and are looking forward to putting it to good use over the coming years.
