The Elite Windsor lean-to greenhouse is designed for those applications where there is not adequate height to accept one of the Elite Kensington models.
Please note that greenhouses are not guaranteed to be watertight and can not be seen as a substitute for a fully sealed conservatory. If you install a lean-to greenhouse over an entrance to your home it MUST be glazed with toughened safety glass.
The ridge height of the Windsor Greenhouse is 6ft 7in (2010mm) excluding base plinth. Separate aluminium plinth base is 5in high (125mm) and needs to be added to the heights above if chosen. As the Windsor is fitted with roof vent(s) it should be noted that, where a building is being fitted tight under a soffit overhang, the roof vents may be restricted from opening.
Vents fitted as standard:
4ft 5in - 1 roof vent
6ft 5in - 1 roof vent
8ft 5in - 1 roof vents
10ft 5in - 1 roof vents
12ft 6in - 1roof vents
14ft 6in - 2 roof vents
16ft 6in - 2 roof vents
18ft 6in - 3 roof vents
20ft 6in - 3 roof vents
The 'Windsor' is a low height lean to, 4ft3 wide and lengths up to 20ft7in.

An essential part of any greenhouse is the staging which provides working surfaces as well as storage.
Our aluminium staging won't rot, twist or rust !
Supported by cantilever braces there are no legs to get in the way or make it difficult to sweep the greenhouse out. The staging height can generally be adjusted when fitting to suit you

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.
This base plinth is provided to add strength at ground level and to make installation of the greenhouse easier. It replaces the need to lay foundations and a brick plinth in most situations.
If you choose a coloured framed greenhouse we can provide the base in the appropriate colour to match the framework.
When measuring available height for your lean-to greenhouse please don't forget to allow for the 5" base plinth if purchased. Alternatively you can install the greenhouse on a course of bricks.
An optional feature, this capping slots over the framework. It provides a draught excluding seal along the edges of the glass, retains the glass securely, and looks attractive and streamlined.
Pictured in olive, the capping is available in green, black, graphite, brown, terracotta, stone, berry or white too
Instead of having your greenhouse 'glass to ground', you now have the option of adding aluminium Hybrid Panels giving a half boarded greenhouse.
These panels are incredibly strong and almost unbreakable on impact. Impacts from stones or balls will simply bounce off. They are lawnmower and strimmer friendly, plus you can hide any unsightly grow bags.
Available in green, black, graphite, brown, terracotta, white, olive, berry or stone. Compatible with bar capping.

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.
