Accessories & Services

Here we have put the spotlight on a number of important areas of information which we hope you will find useful.

Our choice of Greenhouse manufacturers has been initiated by some of the different types of accessories that are available but not readily seen elsewhere.

You will find some insight into how meticulous the manufacturing process is with a zero tolerance when it comes to quality of workmanship and finish.

Glazing Material

Elite are renowned for their supplies of Glazing materials. Starting with the Glazing itself,  Elite supply PVC strips available in 2ft lengths that are designed to fit one piece of glazing on top of another butted together. Nuts and Bolts, Neoprene beading, Greenhouse Mastic beading, Silicon sealant, Draft excluders and roof spacers are always readily available for any maintenance requirements.

Bar Capping

To avoid the slightest chance of any leaks, the Elite Bar Capping is a must. Extremely durable
And designed to fit well and become an intrinsic part of the roof section you can be assured of
ensuring superb stability as well as leak-proof joints in the roofing area. Bar Capping is available in six different colors.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is generally applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.

Base Options

Elite offers an aluminium base option that enables direct fixture into grass, concrete or slabs.
Other additional options include low threshold fixtures that enable easy wheelbarrow or wheelchair access. It is always important to ensure you have good even level ground preparation before you introduce any method of base construction.

Delivery Info

Our recommended manufacturers will deliver your greenhouse or Lean-to direct from their factory. In most cases the prices include delivery to any main UK address with just a few postcode exceptions. These exceptions are listed under our Technical Information tab under “Deliveries” on the home page.

Technical Information

It is often very helpful to have to hand some installation guidance when you purchase your greenhouse or Lean-to. By going to the Technical Information tab on our home page, you will find that Alton has got a comprehensive installation guide for you to follow to ensure a successfully constructed Greenhouse. Please take a look at the other subheadings under the Technical Information tab as you will find other information that will answer many of the popular questions or queries that often pop up.

The main objectives for any grower whether you are a seasoned commercial grower or a beginner will be;-

The Lean-to range has also been extended.
Starting from (0.6m) 2ft wide to 2.44m (8ft).

Internal Features Besides the extra strong aluminium structure designed to withstand heavy storms that would destroy most other Greenhouses, there are some excellent features that are worth noting.
Look out for the partition options that are available in some of the larger greenhouses.
Here you could effectively grow different species requiring different requirements or temperature etc. In effect two separate Greenhouses in one.


Gardening can be made easily available for disabled people if you have a wheelchair friendly greenhouse.
This feature also goes hand in hand with the threshold being at ground level for the easy use of wheelbarrows.
Easily adjustable propagating benches designed for easy movement as you stagger your growth of produce.
Less time taken into having to shift around heavy pots or grow-bags etc. causing unnecessary back-breaking activity.
One of the standard features is an automatic vent opener that adjusts according to the changes of the outside temperature.
This feature is available as “an optional extra” with much of the competition.
The glazing is an area that is often skimped by lower grade manufactured greenhouses.
Here we have minimum 4mm top grade toughened safety glass to the highest BS and EU standards as an inclusive part of the range.
