8ft wide freestanding greenhouse

Full specification

8ft (2.575m) wide, freestanding Maxi greenhouse

This excellent 8ft wide Maxi by Dovetail is a superb and practical greenhouse ideal for the larger garden. Wheelchair friendly when fitted with double sliding doors the Maxi has a low 1in threshold. With coloured options available, finials or cresting, this greenhouse comes as standard with built in gutters, generous head room and a growing height of 5ft 6in allowing you to stand and work in the sides of the greenhouse with ease.


Our standard method of retaining glass uses a wide, stainless steel clipping system so designed to equalise the pressure between the glazing face and the frame of the greenhouse. Types of glazing available are 3mm Horticultural glass, 4mm Toughened safety glass and 6mm twin walled Polycarbonate. We can also offer our unique aluminium capping system rather than clips to retain the glass when single sheet toughened glass is ordered with this greenhouse.

Noteworthy features

The length of the Maxi greenhouse can be extended if required. We can include cresting and finials, louvres, staging and autovents too, as well as colour this splendid looking greenhouse. Just ask us for details.
