Dovetail 8ft wide Lean-to greenhouses
The 8ft wide Senator range of lean-to greenhouses have been manufactured by Dovetail with both style and practicality in mind. Any of our lean-to greenhouses can be built onto a dwarf wall if required or manufactured as glass to ground models with sliding doors positioned in the front or the 8ft end of the structure. Reduced height options are possible subject to the height of the door required. Aluminium topped staging is available as is the option of colouring the greenhouse.
Our standard method of retaining glass uses a wide, stainless steel clipping system. The clip is so 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. This gives a clear line to the glazing. Types of glazing available on this model are:
3mm Horticultural glass, 4mm Toughened safety glass and 6mm twin walled Polycarbonate.
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.
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 greenhouses 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.
