At Griffin we understand that your glasshouse is a one-off purchase which is why we offer so much choice. Depending on the look you wish to create we can tailor the glasshouse to suit your exact requirements. Whether you want a Victorian style glasshouse or you are trying to recreate the orangery of your dreams we can help. We have standard options of course, but we also offer a range of roof pitches, glass widths and colours, as well as all the accessories you are ever likely to need to compliment your glasshouse, greenhouse or orangery to make it a fully functional and user friendly addition to your garden.

“Sitting comfortably on the old base, not only does it look good, but until one comes close, it looks the same as our old one without the worry of constant maintenance. It was a delight to meet and deal with such an efficient family firm. Everything ran to the timetable you gave, which is most unusual these days.�

MATERIALS

Painted timber is always a problem in the long term. It does require sanding down and several coats of paint, particularly to the outside surfaces, every 3-7 years. This is why we manufacture our structures from aluminum and steel (hot dipped galvanized). Our structures are powder coated, which is a modern form of enameling, and are available in a wide range of British Standard and RAL colours. An important aspect of Glasshouse design is the capping system. Our profiled cap gives the visual effect of a carved wooden cap but with the ease of maintenance of modern materials. Our patented system provides efficient energy-saving insulation for the aluminum glazing bar and helps reduce glass slip and water leakage problems, it also prevents the growth of moss and algae on the glazing therefore helping it stay cleaner for longer.

VENTILATION

26

27

Our glasshouses are designed with the very best ventilation systems in the industry using a range of fully automatic and hand operated units. We design our glasshouses to have much more than the recommended minimum amount of ventilation. For smaller vents we use automatic ventilator openers - which give the user automatic ventilation without the need for electricity. Where larger openings are required, we install full length ventilators to both the side and roof to maximize the openings and provide a through-flow of air. These can be automated giving the user peace of mind that their plants will be fully ventilated in their absence.

“The whole experience was a pleasure and completely free of the usual difficulties of any building work. I will have no hesitation in recommending your Company to others although I have to say that the finished structure speaks for itself.� Mr H, Surrey

Griffin offers a variety of cold frames to suit your needs.

HEATING

We can advise on the heating requirements of your structure and can supply heating systems based upon your crop requirements.

IRRIGATION

We can supply the very best range of irrigation systems to suit your needs.

INTERNAL WATER STORAGE

37

We can provide and install internal water storage tanks, fitted with lids beneath benching. This can be used in conjunction with irrigation systems using an electric pump system.

SHADING

We use a commercial quality shading fabric wrapped around internal roller blinds. These are fitted at eaves height within the glasshouse. We have found that internal shading gives some heat retention properties as well as being less liable to damage.

BUILDING WORKS

We can undertake the complete building works including removal and disposal of existing buildings, or you can use your own local builders.

ERECTION

We always provide a complete erection and glazing service as it is very important that the structure is erected to our high specification.
