Absolutely the Strongest Available in Australia- A Box Section Frame Masterpiece!
NOTE- This listing is for an extension system for our Grandiose Orangery Glasshouse. An extension system is a 2.1mL wing that can be added to any of the 3 gable of the orangery- to the left, right or front. Multiple extension systems can be added to you requirements. You will need to purchase the main module (Grandiose Orangery 4500 Glasshouse) for this extension to be useable.
Orangery style glasshouses are a lovely feature to have in your garden. They really stand out as something a bit different and tend to be used not only as glasshouses, but also as sun rooms in which to relax. From the 17th to the 19th centuries, an orangery was a room or dedicated building on the grounds of fashionable residences, where oranges and other fruit trees were protected during the winter.
Our Grandiose Orangery offers a perfect combination of elegance, strength, safety and features not found in other glasshouses, along with an ideal environment for gardeners to grow all year round. These glasshouses are available in 10mm twin-wall polycarbonate OR 4mm toughened glass. Boasting a seriously heavy 1.8-3.2mm box-section frame, this glasshouse will stand up to anything you throw at it.
ALL of our Grow-Fresh glasshouse ranges are glazed with Australian made safety glass, manufactured here locally to AD/NZS 2208 safety standards. Did you know many of our competitors selling cheaper glasshouses are now importing all of their glass from China? This imported glass does NOT meet current standards and can be prone to exploding. Ask the question before you buy.
The frame of our Grandiose Orangery was first designed and engineered as a glasshouse to hold glass and this is a huge advantage. We have seen over a tonne of glass held within the frame of these glasshouses, that's impressive! You will find all glazing held to the framework using our exclusive UPVC bar-capping. This is by far the most advanced method worldwide currently. The Grandiose glazing system actually locks the glazing in place along its entire length. Each pane of glass/polycarbonate becomes an integral part of the strength of the whole frame. Using this method, the glazing cannot be blown or sucked out of the frame, pushing on the glass/poly only locks the glazing strips more tightly into the frame.
You will not find a more wind resistant glasshouse on the AU market than the Grandiose. W use more aluminium in our frames than anyone else and all our panels widths are kept to a maximum of 700mm
We use a lot of very thick "T" section aluminium profiles (up to 3.2mm thick) in both our glasshouses and staging. Being heavy it is costly but it is enormously strong and adds significantly to the overall strength of the Grandiose glasshouse. We use this "T" sections in our hanging basket rails - two sections that run the whole length of each glasshouse. Not only as they there to increase the strength of the whole roof, preventing any tendency for the bays to spread, but they are so strong that you can hang numerous heavy baskets from them. Normally you wouldn't want to subject a glasshouse roof to any extra load but we are so confident of the Orangerys strength, we include this really useful feature as standard. This will save vast amounts of space on your staging. The rails themselves are very strong, being made from the same heavy duty "T" sections aluminium.
The majority of our frame on the Windsor glasshouses are 3mm thick (even the box sections!) with the thinnest still being a chunky 1.8mm! Ultimately you cannot beat a full nuts and bolts frame on frame construction for ultimate strength and longevity. Come and see it for yourself at one of our display locations, you will not be disappointed!
Extension Systems: Our Grandiose Orangery can be extended beyond the traditional t-shape. Extensions can be added to any of the 3 gable ends (left, right or front of the structure). Each extension adds 2.1m to the length of that particular gable.
Base/Foundation Options: Don't want to go to the trouble and/or expense of laying a full concrete slab foundation, concrete perimeter or timer perimeter? No problem! The optional incredibly strong full box-section base plinth is designed for exactly this situation. With other 4mm glasshouses on the AU market, you have no other option but to sit the greenhouse on a hardstanding foundation but this is not the case with a Grandiose. We give you both options, either the low level threshold (provided) or the choice to upgrade to the full box-section aluminium base plinth with our exceptionally strong ground anchors. Where you are siting the Orangery glasshouse straight onto the ground, you would dig a hole under each anchor before filling the hole with rapid set concrete, easy!
