The Elite GX800 greenhouse is a 'Garden Centre Exclusive' model, which is exclusive to display centres throughout the UK. If you wish to purchase one of these greenhouses, please contact your local GBC display centre. Click here to find your local centre.
The GX800 is a high specification, sturdily constructed greenhouse, carefully thought out for the needs of discerning gardeners. Also available in plain aluminium and a choice of other powder coated colour finishes, it is pictured here in green. The GX800 is packed with the features illustrated in the pictures on this page. Accessories can be colour matched as appropriate to the greenhouse.
The GX800 in the picture has optional 7 slat cantilevered staging, ridge cresting, downpipe kit and barrel, low level vented panels and automatic ventilation.
We recommend that you choose full sheet toughened safety glass for the GX models ... it is safer but also fits better allowing a smooth fit from the glazing capping to the glass.
2 five blade louvre windows are fitted on every GX800 as standard, assuring that you can provide low level ventilation to remove stale air from the bottom of your greenhouse when used in conjunction with the roof vents. Toughened safety glass is an essential feature of these louvres. Shown here in green, the louvre can be colour matched to the greenhouse.
Shown here too is the optional automatic louvre opener which uses a hydraulic cylinder to open the blades as the temperature inside rises.
This sturdy, 2 slat wide shelf for the gable end is a standard item with every GX greenhouse. Supported on strong cantilever braces, it is ideal for pots, packets and tools. The shelf is colour matched to the greenhouse you choose.
Also visible in the picture is the double width gable end glazing bar which helps make the GX such a sturdy greenhouse.
Everything about the GX greenhouse is built with the gardener's needs in mind and ventilation is no exception. The roof vents on the GX range are twice the size of most greenhouse vents and sturdily constructed. The number of vents depends on the size of the greenhouse so please contact us for details
Shown here with an optional Bayliss automatic opener, this is a handy way of keeping your greenhouse from overheating in the summer months. The hydraulic cylinder pushes the vent open as the temperature inside the greenhouse rises.
The GX range can be provided with plain or vented aluminium panels below the glass at ground level. This protects against stone chips and splashback but also presents an opportunity to provide additional ventilation.
Shown here in green finish, this is the vented version of the panel.
This picture shows our interconnecting rainwater kit on one of our smaller greenhouses. The normal rainwater kit provides you with two downpipes but for a small extra charge we provide additional piping and joints so that the water can be directed across the back of the greenhouse to join up at one point.
Also pictured is our 110litre water barrel and barrel stand. This is a slimline barrel and is useful where space is limited.
Delivery to mainland England and Wales is included in all of our Elite greenhouse prices. It's also included in selected areas of Scotland but you need to check with our staff as we occasionally have to make extra arrangements for areas above the central belt which may cost a little extra. On delivery the greenhouse and staging are contained in the larger cardboard boxes, the accessory items are grouped together and the glass needs a clear length of wall to lean against, preferably in a garage or outbuilding. In this instance a fairly small greenhouse delivery is safely stacked against a sheltered garden wall. Nothing in the boxes will take any harm if it gets wet during storage, after all, the greenhouse is intended to stand outside in all weather. You will be advised of the delivery date so you can ensure that the delivery driver can gain access to unload the boxes and glass.
Should you choose to install your greenhouse yourself this is what you will find when you unpack the boxes ! The components here are from our smallest greenhouse ( 4ft x 4ft ) but the principle is the same with all sizes. Aluminium components are carefully wrapped and labelled to tell you which section they belong to. All you need to do is follow the instructions on preparing them and assembling them which are also provided. ( Orange booklet in this picture ). All clips, nuts and bolts and rubber glazing beads are provided in the pack too. Glass is delivered at the same time as the greenhouse and stacked where you request.
If you prefer to have your greenhouse installed then please talk to a member of our staff who will be happy to explain the various fitting options available to you.

As with all of our aluminium greenhouses, this building will be delivered directly to you by one of our own careful drivers. We always like to ensure that your building reaches you in perfect condition, so at point of order we will always ask you to provide us with as much information regarding access to your address and base area as possible.
We will always give good notice of our expected arrival date and work carefully with our customers to try and provide a suitable time and date to suit you. If you cannot be there in person, we will endeavour to leave the greenhouse pack in a pre-designated area, we simply require you to inform us of the area and ensure that it is safe and stable enough for the glass and greenhouse pack to be left.
As our aluminium greenhouses are so popular, the delivery times can vary from season to season. Our colour powder-coated greenhouses can take slightly longer, due to the powder-coating process. For plain aluminium greenhouses, you should expect to receive your building in around 3-4 weeks from point of order and up to 6-10 weeks for certain colours. Please feel free to contact us on 0800 999 0123 to check our current delivery times.
