The Robinsons Royale Reach greenhouse is based on one of our most popular Robinsons greenhouses - the Royale. The extra height in these models allow the wide opening 4ft (1200mm) double doors to be positioned on either the gable end of the greenhouse or on the side. They are a particularly useful feature of this model - they slide easily, are lockable, and provide easy access over the ground level threshold - ideal for wheelbarrows and wheelchairs. All models are available in plain mill aluminium finish or a choice of high quality powder coated finishes.
At a full 8ft 8in (2636mm) wide, the Robinsons Royale Reach greenhouse allows you to have a full run of staging down each side and still have a 4ft wide pathway. The Royale Reach greenhouse is available in a variety of lengths from 6ft 7in (2012mm) to 12ft 8in (3872mm). You can also add an 8ft 1in extension (2480mm) to increase the length of your greenhouse. We always recommend you purchase the longest model you can accommodate - you can never have too much growing space!
Robinsons Box Section Structure
R-PRO glazing bars are made using the unique Robinsons Box Section technology. The sheer strength of the bars themselves means that we do not need to clutter up the inside of the greenhouse with messy braces.
Aluminium Bar Capping
As standard your greenhouse includes aluminium bar capping (PVC for white or mill finish) which holds in the glass firmer and stronger than other greenhouses. It is then finished with a an strip to cover those screws for a high quality finish.
Toughened Safety Glass
4mm toughened safety glass is supplied as standard for strength and safety.
You now have the choice of 5 colour finishes as well as the plain mill finish for your greenhouse. Old Cottage Green, Pastel Sage, Anthracite and Ivory have been added to the existing range, joining Classic White.

The Robinsons Reach is based on the most popular of the Robinsons range - the Royale. The Reach is the same 8ft 6in standard width, but with a higher eaves height of 6ft 10in.
This allows more growing space inside and also allows you to position your double doors on the side of your greenhouse - such as this greenhouse.
Please note: The 'Classic Green' coloured finish is no longer available.
All Robinsons Greenhouses are fitted with 4mm toughened safety glass which complies with BS6206 Class A. This is 4 times stronger than standard glass of the same thickness.
In the unlikely event of breakage, it shatters into small pieces, much as car windscreens used to, thus minimising any risks.
The glass is secured in place with Robinsons' unique bar capping system.
This picture illustrates the detail of the Robinsons glazing system which is strong, thermally efficient and neat. Each pane of glass is held in place by full length 'bar capping' which reduces draughts and removes the need for unsightly clips. The bars are screwed in place and a final cap is applied to hide the screw heads and provide an attractive, easy maintenance finish.
Also in the picture you will see the drainage holes which are necessary to remove condensation from the internal eaves. This is a problem which most greenhouses don't cater for ... condensation runs down the inside face of the glass and gathers in the eaves. Robinsons cure this with strategically placed drain holes as pictured.
A 6 blade louvre window glazed with toughened glass is a popular choice with Robinsons' customers. We recommend fitting it at a low level to draw air up through the greenhouse roof vents thus preventing stale air causing mildew.
Also in the picture is an automatic louvre opener, this is a useful additional accessory saving you adjusting the louvre yourself.
Robinsons Greenhouses have a choice of timber or aluminium slatted staging. The aluminium staging can be finished in plain mill finish or white or green as pictured here. This is the green finish 7 slat wide (25") aluminium staging and 3 slat wide high level shelving. This is easy to clean, sturdy staging which will fit in all Robinsons models except the Renaissance.
The number of roof vents fitted as standard in a Robinsons greenhouse varies according to its size and is shown in the current pricelist. You can choose to add extra roof vents should you feel it necessary but please remember they can't fit in adjacent panels in the roof. This picture is of the roof vent on an 8ft wide Robinsons 'Royale' greenhouse.
Every Robinsons roof vent is supplied with an automatic opener : Imagine getting up on a hot summer morning to find everything in your greenhouse has keeled over from the heat ... this is what an automatic opener will help prevent.
As the temperature rises the roof vent will open to ventilate the greenhouse and protect your valuable plants.
By adding a partitioned area to your greenhouse you can create two separate temperature controlled areas. The bigger the greenhouse the more important this can be since you can keep part of the greenhouse warm enough to germinate seedlings and overwinter tender plants without having the cost of heating the whole greenhouse. The partition can be placed at any of the 2ft modules and can be fitted with a single or double door depending on your requirements.
Notice also the sturdy A frame joining system used on longer length Robinsons Greenhouses.
The picture shows the 8ft wide Robinsons Royale partition but the principle is exactly the same for the 10ft wide Rosette and the 12ft wide Regal.
For over 60 years gardeners have valued Robinsons as the name on the very best aluminium greenhouses.
GBC, established for over twenty years, are the UK's largest supplier of Robinsons Greenhouses with displays at every one of our branches nationwide.
All new Robinsons greenhouses carry a ten year frame guarantee.
Insulating aluminium greenhouses to retain heat for overwintering tender plants and starting off new seedlings can be accomplished by using bubblewrap. This is usually pegged to the frame on the roof as well as the sides and gables but a customer sent in this picture of his solution to the pegging problem :
I have fixed the bubble insulation using three lengths of 13mm aluminium tube cut to length and suspended at the ends from the roof. The bubble wrap then just feeds up and over and down in one piece. It doesn’t require any pegging at all. It then just requires about eight pegs only, to fix the cut and shaped two end pieces. The tube can remain insitu throughout the year .
His building is a 6 x 5 Castle Balvenie but the principle would apply for any other model. Don't forget to disconnect autovents before you fit the bubblewrap or you'll lose all that lovely warm air !
