    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

    This product does NOT fit the Hercules OCTAGONAL range of buildings

    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. Every consideration has been made in the design of this model; literally from the ground up, as it comes with a strong  4 inch galvanised base, allowing you to site your greenhouse on practically any surface.  The rigidity of the building is improved further, by the inclusion of 3mm toughened safety glass, which comes as standard throughout, and is retained by sturdy full length PVC bar capping in this Ultimate package; which is far stronger than any standard glazing clips.

This Ultimate Package includes a whole host of extras, giving you everything you need to get you started.  No need to worry about ventilation during those hot summer months, as this package gives you roof vent(s) complete with an automatic opener, which, when combined with the louvre vent supplied, provides your greenhouse with perfect airflow.  It is also supplied with downpipes, end stops and angled joints, which clip directly into the Classic’s integral guttering.  Simply add an optional water butt or two, and you can harvest plenty of precious rainwater. Finally, this Ultimate Package comes with a complete run of Babbington staging, down one side.  Made of thick gauge aluminium, the frame supports 1-inch deep trays, giving you a stable working surface which has folded edges for safety.

So there you have it.  The Simplicity Classic.  The Ultimate Package.  All you need to provide yourself are a set of green fingers and an unlimited imagination.

Q. With full sheet toughened glass, if I have extra louvres will I need to cut the glass to make them fit?

A. No, you won't have to do that. We automatically adjust the toughened glass for you, it is quite often the case that extra louvres and vents are added. You will have the correct glass delivered.


Q. What is the height of the base unit without the legs?

A. 100mm


Q. Please can you tell me what size base I would need to have this greenhouse placed on, is it fully sealed with having a metal base, do you errect and if so what would be the total cost for supply & errect. Thanks Mike

A. As a minimum foundation for the Simplicity Classic Mill 68 **Mill Package**, you wold require 7'x 9' paving slabs. The metal base would be fixed to the foundations with rawlplugs and screws. All customers that order a greenhouse from us receive a list of approved greenhouse fitters. The approx. cost of fitting on a pre-existing level foudation would be expected to be around £175.


Q. Can I use paving slabs for the base? or do I need a concrete one

A. Hello, yes a paving slab base would be ideal. If you choose to have a concrete base you would need to make sure there are some drainage holes to avoid pooling inside the greenhouse.


Q. Can you confirm that the metal base included is a galvanised metal base or should we order the enhanced pack at £25 as per yr accessory listing. Thanks

A. Hello, the base is galvanised steel. Going for the upgrade gives you the same base but in a powder coated finish like the rest of the building.

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.

The quality of the greenhouse is excellent, the reason I have only given it 4/5 is that it is so difficult to build, and the instructions are not clear at all. I was lucky in that a friend had done one a few years ago, otherwise my wife and I would have had a real problem
