Aluminium greenhouse frame parts
There are a range of reasons why customers choose aluminium greenhouses ahead of wood and other options. Here are some of the benefits to choosing aluminium:
• Cost effective
Aluminium greenhouses provide a cheaper alternative than wooden greenhouses - it has been suggested that they are up to a third cheaper! Not only is the initial cost of purchase cheaper, long-term it can provide other financial savings.
• Easy to assemble
Although many of our aluminium greenhouses come with the offer of free installation, it is relatively easy to assemble aluminium greenhouses from scratch. Although it depends on the size and base of your aluminium greenhouse, some of our previous customers have reported that they have assembled aluminium greenhouses comfortably within a day.
• Robust and lightweight
Aluminium is a great material to use for greenhouses, because it is a strong metal. Your greenhouse will survive during more challenging weather conditions, and – in combination with some well-engineered windows – you can enjoy using your aluminium greenhouse without the worry of structural damage. Despite aluminium being strong, it is still lightweight which means that handling and assembling the aluminium frames will not cause you any hassle.
Aluminium is extremely durable – it doesn’t rust, rot or warp and it is non-toxic. This keeps maintenance costs to a minimum and guarantees that your aluminium greenhouse will look great even after a long time. That said, durability can still be improved by applying powder coat or paint to the aluminium structure.
• Customise easily
Aluminium is easy to drill in to, meaning that it is easy to install shelves, hooks and any other accessories required. As we have already mentioned, the brands we work with have a wide range of accessories available, making it easier for you to find products that suit your needs.
• Maximum light exposure
Aluminium frames are thin; this means that any light entering your greenhouse is not blocked by a thick frame (more likely with a wooden frame). Maximum sunlight means greater exposure for your plants, allowing them to grow quickly and healthily.
• Aesthetically pleasing
Aluminium greenhouses are nice to look at. As they have thin frames, you get a good view of the plants being grown and the greenhouse often comes with a green powder coat which makes the greenhouse look natural. Aluminium greenhouses often come in a range of colours so find one to suit your tastes!
