  • Simplicity Auto louvre opener

    More information
    Simplicity 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.

  • Simplicity Bar Capping set (Pastel Sage) for Shugborough 8ft

    More information
    Simplicity Bar Capping set (Pastel Sage) for Shugborough 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.

his greenhouse is one of our more robust models. We probably make less than 1000 of these a year here in the UK. As a result, we use a thicker metal extrusion throughout the frame work. Currently we have an offer on a 6x8 Classic greenhouse at £499 which is a fantastic price, this means that this greenhouse is often overlooked. In actual fact, this greenhouse is even better value for money that the 6x8 Classic model. It is up to 30% bigger in volume thanks to its high eaves, and its base is green as standard (normally £40 upgrade on the classic). Take in to account this greenhouse has more aluminium in the framework -  it all adds up to what is probably the best value greenhouse on this website.

If your after a greenhouse that is well made, robust, comfortable to work in and attractive to look at, then this is the greenhouse you should buy. The next step up is the Hercules Trafalgar, which costs £1000. Quite simply this is the best 6'x8' greenhouse on the market for less than £1000.

We are only doing a limit run of these greenhouses at this price. Buy now to ensure you don't miss out. 

There are several reasons why it's better to have a greenhouse with high eaves:

- A larger volume of air creates a more stable growing environment, with less dramatic fluctuations in temperature.
- Your plants have more headroom.Taller plants such as tomatoes and chrysanthemums need the height.
- High eaves give you more headroom- Ideal if you're tall.
- High eaves give you room on the side for a high level shelf. 

NOTE: this greenhouse has the option of bar capping which is not normallay found in greenhouse in this price range 
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.
Simplicity models use the better quality stainless steel band clips to hold the glass in rather than the more flimsy galvanized wire clips
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
Upgrade to the bar capping system and you can eliminate clips completely from your greenhouse- Glass will then be held in along it's full length - providing a far neater finish and superior strength in windy conditions.

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.

What a good company the Greenhouse People are! From ordering, delivery and technical help every person I have dealt with has been fantastic. As for the greenhouse, well my Simplicity Shugbourgh 6' x 8' has been up for less than a week on my allotment and survived the gusting 50mph winds last night! So far so good:))) Toughened glass, fixing to ground kit and barcapping, obviously helped. I would say following the instructions and reading then more than once is a must.

by Terry Mayne

I bought this greenhouse package last year and was surprised how easy it was to put together, the instructions are simple to follow and the end result is a strong, well made greenhouse at an excellent price, I have bought other items since from The Greenhouse People and I cannot praise their help enough , overall a first class company offering a first class product. Highly recommended.

by Eve Montgomery

The extra height makes the greenhouse feel a lot more spacious than my old 6' x 8' which was on the same site. I would highly recommend this model if you are tall! It was fairly easy to put up even though it is in a very awkward space and some of the glazing had to be done from the inside which was tricky, but possible with a bit of help from another person. It's well worth taking time to read all the instructions carefully before you start. You do need two people for the roof glazing especially if using toughened glass as the panes are bigger than the horticultural glass panes. The help given over the phone was great, and I'm very pleased with the finished result.

by Louise Whittle

We were absolutley delighted with both the service and quality of the greenhouse. We were notified when greenhouse was on way, the driver was exceptionally helpful and polite. The greenhouse was easy to assemble, you just need a bit of help to put sides together. The instructions were easy to follow, but worth reading a couple of times to make sure you are following them properly! I was so impressed with the service delivered by the company and would have no hesitation in recommending them.

by Grant Combe

I am very impressed with my greenhouse as it feels very sturdy and strong. This by far beats my last greenhouse and would recommend the greenhouse people to be the first place to look for a greenhouse. Found the greenhouse simple to erect and the instructions were not to difficult to follow and took 2 days to erect and put glass in would also recommend the bar capping option as this was easy to install. 5 out of 5 for this greenhouse
