Introducing Australia's Toughest Glasshouses
Windsor® glasshouses offer 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 also available in 10mm GrowLux UV2 twin-wall polycarbonate. Boasting a seriously heavy 1.8-3.2mm box-section frame, this glasshouse will stand up to anything you throw at it.
Absolutely the Strongest Glasshouse Available In Australia- A Box Section Frame Masterpiece!
The launch of the Windsor range promises to breathe fresh air into a marketplace that hasn't yet seen a real quality box section framework glasshouse. Suddenly here is a glasshouse designed to be different – emphasising strength and quality, employing new glazing techniques, incorporating new standards of ventilation and with a host of innovative features – and at super reasonable prices. This approach has resulted in the following model choices-
The 'Windsor Royale' Range 3.7m wide OR The 'Windsor Junior' Range 3.0m wide – with a choice of 2 different widths, both offering a super strong box section frame with the same sorts of features found on elite European glasshouses - all in an economical fully automated package, aimed at bringing endless benefits to the largest possible gardening audience.
The frame of our Windsor Series greenhouse was first designed and engineered as a glasshouse and this is a huge advantage. We have seen over a tonne of glass held within the frame of these greenhouses, that's impressive!
Our Windsor glass edition is glazed with full length sheets of 4mm toughened AUSTRALIAN MADE safety glass. You will find all glazing held to the framework using our exclusive UPVC bar-capping.In contrast to other greenhouse which use slotted channels to slide the panels into, the Windsor 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. This system is found only on the elite greenhouses manufactured and sold across Europe. We are extremely proud to be able to bring such advances to the Australian market.
Toughened glass when impacted greatly will shatter into harmless crumbs, unlike normal float glass which will break into dangerous sharp shards.
ALL of our Grow-Fresh glasshouse ranges are glazed with Australian Made Safety glass, manufactured here locally to AS/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.
You will not find a more wind resistant glasshouse on the AU market than the Windsor Series. We 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 heavy 3mm thick "T" section aluminium profiles in both our greenhouses and staging. Being heavy it is costly but it is enormously strong and adds significantly to the overall strength of the Windsor greenhouse. Every Windsor greenhouse includes 3 heavy duty "T section (3mm thick!) braces on every roof bay - 2 at the eaves and a longer one at the ridge. In addition to this we use the same "T" section in our Hanging Basket Rails - two sections that run the whole length of each greenhouse. Not only are 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 greenhouse roof to any extra load but we are so confident of the Windsors 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" section aluminium.
Why are Grow-Fresh Greenhouses Windsor Series Different From The Competitors 10mm Greenhouses? And Far Superior? The Windsor Series is miles out front in a league of its own, incorporating box-section profiles of up to 3mm thick and not using any cheap shortcuts such as click system joining and plastic components seen on our competitors 10mm greenhouses. The majority of our frames on the Windsor greenhouses are 3mm thick (even the box sections!) with the thinnest still being a chunky 1.8mm!
Base/Foundation Options? Don't want to go to the trouble and/or expense of laying a full concrete slab foundation or timber perimeter? No problem! The optional incredibly strong full box-section base plinth is designed for exactly this situation. With other 10mm greenhouses 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 Windsor. 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 Windsor greenhouse straight onto the ground, you would dig a hole under each anchor before filling the hole with rapid set concrete, easy!
