Glazing Options for Elite Greenhouses

Glazing

On all Elite models the following glazing types are available...

Horticultural Glass

Horticultural glass
Available in 3mm thick overlapping glass sheets.

Toughened Safety Glass

Toughened safety glass
In the event of a breakage, the glass granulates removing any danger of injury.
Elite only use Grade A toughened safety glass to EN 12150 which is in full length sheets providing a neater finish, especially with bar capping, and removes any overlapping glass where algae and moss can often be a problem. Please Note: We only supply genuine Elite greenhouses with this glass, be cautious of cheap imitations.

Polycarbonate Glazing

Polycarbonate
UVI treated 6mm thick, twin wall with silvered edges and, like the toughened safety glass, it comes in full sheets and is a great option where children and pets are concerned.

Remember, when handling any type of glass the upmost care must be taken as it is extremely fragile when not in situ. 

It is also advised that safety gloves and goggles are worn.

Bar Capping

Bar Capping
This is only available on full length toughened and polycarbonate glass.

Elite greenhouse bar capping

Bar Capping provides a stronger hold for the glazing, and also adds a decorative finish to any Elite greenhouse.
The rubber fin also adds a better water seal between the frame and glass.
Capping is used in addition to wire clips so in effect will add double protection which is ideal in more exposed areas.
The capping is simply screwed into position into a special grove in the aluminium bar.
