The Hercules Blenheim range has all the features that help create the perfect greenhouse environment, and its structure has been specially designed to withstand adverse weather conditions, especially the wind.
All Hercules models include lots of roof vents (all automatic) and a suitable number of louvre side vents. Additional ones can be added, if you require them.
Hercules has more metal in the frame and has extra cantilever braces in the roof for strength. If you live in a windy area, Hercules is the greenhouse for you.
Good quality downpipes are included as standard, and come with a 45 degree bend for you to easily run the downpipe into a water butt. A good range of extra bends and T pieces are also available.
There is an 18" high pane of toughened glass all around the bottom of the greenhouse - Should you accidentally ever flick a stone up from your lawnmower and break a pane, it is small, easy and cheap to replace.
All glass is held in with full length PVC 'bar capping' - This eliminates the traditional greenhouse clips and is far neater and stronger in the wind.
Hanging basket rails are also included. These full length rails are made from sturdy T-section and you can hang your baskets straight from them, making them easier to plant up and grow on.
Many greenhouses on the market have a step at the door which can be inconvenient. Hercules greenhouses have a level threshold, which is ideal for wheelchair or wheelbarrow access - and no step for you.
The sliding double doors are lockable, keeping them firmly closed when it's windy. They can also be locked with a key, for additional security.

Q. How strong is the toughened glass on the Hercules?
A. Should you have any questions please call us on 01782 398600.
The Greenhouse People Toughened SAFETY Glass is approximately 2.9mm - 3.2mm thick and meets British Standards. Due to it's flexibility over Horticultural (Brittle) Glass it can be produced in large sheets and take impacts such as a football (NOT a Cricket ball or similar though) without breaking. If Toughened Safety Glass breaks it shatters into tiny pieces (about 6mm in diameter) which are much less likely to cause serious injury than the shards & points that Horticultural glass breaks into. Producers of toughened glass advertise that it is 5-6 times stronger than Horticultural Glass.
Q. do this greenhouse come with a base
A. Greenhouses with less metal in the main framework tend to need a metal base to add extra strength and rigidity to the whole structure. A base is simply not required on a Hercules due to the thickness of the extrusion and design of the building. This is one of the strongest greenhouses around, the frame will not twist and flex because it has no base.
Not having to use a base is an advantage! You don?t have to step into the greenhouse, perfect for wheelchair or wheel barrow access.
Q. How is greenhouse fixed to the ground without a base? Wanting to put G/h directly onto soil?
A. A footing is required for this greenhouse, for example a concrete strip footing or a rim of paving slabs.
