The Robinsons Ratcliffe Victorian greenhouse is part of the Robinsons Victorian range of greenhouses. This model is 8' 7" wide and is a freestanding, glass-to-ground building.
The Robinsons Victorian range offers you a choice of greenhouses with a distinctive Victorian style. The addition of cast aluminium spandrels at both eaves and ridge strengthens the greenhouse considerably and the extra height (created by the more traditional 45° pitch to the roof) gives more air in the greenhouse as well as more room for specimen plants. The 45° roof pitch is also said to be better for light transmission as well.
The Robinsons Ratcliffe Victorian greenhouse has high eaves (5' 6") for extra headroom inside your greenhouse. Extremely strong 'box section' glazing bars, toughened safety glass, guttering and downpipes, automatically opening roof vents and screw-in bar capping are all included as standard.
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 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.
Choose from 4 colours; Old Cottage Green, Pastel Sage, Anthracite and Ivory..
Guttering and Downpipes Included
Attractive aluminium guttering and PVC downpipes allow you to collect valuable water
GO-LO is a properly engineered low level threshold for easy wheelchair or wheelbarrow access.

The Robinsons Ratcliffe greeenhouse is shown here in Ivory with optional staging, shelving and Victorian ridge cresting.
This is typical of the display models you will see at GBC display centres located throughout the UK.
What better chance to check out the quality of construction of these superb greenhouses ?
Carefully crafted spandrel bracing is used at the eaves and the ridge of the Robinsons Victorian greenhouses to provide strength and a touch of old time style to these beautiful greenhouses.
Automatic openers are an essential fixture for each roof vent. A wax filled cylinder opens hydraulically as the air warms up and allows the heat to discharge through the vents. The opening temperature can be adjusted.
When something as good as the Robinsons Victorian comes along we're keen to show it to you as soon as we can so we have begun ( September 2014 ) a programme of installations at our 33 branches. If the model you're looking for isn't on display near you, just call one of our branches and we'll let you know if there's a different model in the range locally which will demonstrate all of the product features even if it's a slightly wider or narrower building !
Pictured here is an Ivory finish, glass to ground ( as opposed to dwarf wall ) Ratcliffe display model at our Hertford branch. It features optional staging and shelving which is typical of all of our display models.
For over 60 years gardeners have valued Robinsons as the name on the very best aluminium greenhouses.
GBC, established for over twenty five years, are the UKs largest supplier of Robinsons Greenhouses with displays at every one of our branches nationwide.
All new Robinsons greenhouses carry a ten year frame guarantee.
Toughened safety glass is included as standard with every Robinsons Victorian greenhouse for safety and also for ease of maintenance. This is held in place by external bar capping strips : in the picture you will see that the edges of the glass are secured behind the capping strip meaning that it is virtually impossible for the wind to blow the glass out. It's also neat and easy to clean.
The capping strip matches the colour of greenhouse you choose.
Louvre windows allow you to ventilate your greenhouse at low level thus moving stale air from around your plants and out through the roof vents. Robinsons Victorian louvres can even be fitted under the staging as shown !
If preferred you can also add an automatic louvre opener to do the job for you in hot weather ( not pictured ).
