6ft wide lean to greenhouse

Full specification

The Dovetail 6ft wide lean to greenhouse

Elegant, practical and versatile, the 6ft wide Senator lean to greenhouse range by Dovetail is a compliment to any home, doubling as a lobby or porch with generous head room for all your needs, having an eave height of 6ft 2in and a ridge height of 8ft 1in. Reduced height options are possible if necessary subject to the height of the door required.

The standard 6ft wide Senator can be manufactured either as a glass to ground lean to greenhouse with your choice of the 6ft 2in high sliding door positioned in the front or in the 6ft wide end of the greenhouse, or the Senator can be built onto a dwarf wall, again with sliding doors as standard. Coloured options are available.

Glazing

Our standard method of retaining horticultural glass uses a wide, stainless steel clipping system. The clip is designed to equalise the pressure between the glazing face and the frame of the greenhouse. When single sheet toughened glass is ordered with this type of building, we can also offer our unique aluminium capping system rather than clips that gives an attractive clear line to the glazing.

Types of glazing available are:
3mm Horticultural glass, 4mm Toughened safety glass and 6mm twin walled Polycarbonate glazing.

Fitting

When fitting a lean to greenhouse onto an adjoining wall there a few things that need to be taken into account. The base, which can be as simple as a row of slabs, must be level, and at a true 90 degrees to a vertical rear wall. The smoother the adjoining wall the better, as this will make the sealing of the greenhouse easier when the construction is completed.

Noteworthy features

All of our greenhouses can be altered to suit your individual needs in width, length and height. Built-in aluminium gutters are supplied. If required, our lean to greenhouse can be designed to fit onto a dwarf wall. All of our greenhouses can be powder coated. Standard colours are white, green and brown. Other colours are available.
