SWALLOW GREENHOUSES

Here is some very important information from our supplier Swallow Greenhouses. We hope this will help choosing the right greenhouse for you.

Please call 01892 825338 or Email us if you require any further help.

Glazing

All Swallow Greenhouse comes fitted with 3mm thick Toughened Glass, the glass is slid into a groove and sealed with a quality silicone.  The glass shapes are joined with a clear plastic H-Section (clean looking and easy to wipe) 

Cladding

Swallow use redwood pine which is thermally modified and the boards are fixed with stainless steel nails.  The process involves kiln drying the timber which is then put in special oven where a powerful compressor removes the air.  The temperature is raised to 215 degrees C which bakes the timber.  The result seals the capillaries, destroys resins and proteins and stabilises the timber.

Benefits: It can be left untreated - All bacteria is killed, resulting in a sterile material - paints excellently and lasts up to 3 times longer - timber is totally natural and chemical free - reduced thermal conductiviy - consistent colour throughout - improves durability against decay - improved dimesnional stability - good choice for allergy sufferers.

Door(s)

Inward opening with a mortice lock and handle. 

Roof Vent/s

Each roof vent comes as standard with an bayliss automatic opener.

Bottom of Greenhouse

There is a 24mm plastic section fixed around the bottom of the greenhouse.  This keeps the timber off the ground, prolonging the life of the building.

Access to Site

Swallow require the following height clearances for panels that are pre-glazed:

Bases Required

Base Advice  for Freestanding Greenhouses

Paving Slabs to encourage natural drainage.

Sold concrete base to the size of the greenhouse with a minimum of 4" thick or concrete strip footing with a minimum 4" thick.   

Dwarf wall can be built - height to be advised. 

Base advice for Lean Tos

There are additional factors to consider if a lean-to greenhouse is purchased.  In addition to the above advice the following also applies: the wall must be 90 degree to the base, upright and high enough to accomodate the greenhouse height plus any flashing above.
