Aluminium Glasshouses 

A high quality Taylor Built by Redpath aluminium glasshouses for the home, with 10 Year manufacturers warranty. “Glass is the CLEAR choice for a lifetime of service “.

There are three glasshouse models and widths to choose from.  The “Urban” model is designed with space efficiency in mind with its 1.92m width base allowing it to be easily placed into more compact gardens, The Urban model is supplied in 2.56m length and a 3.2m length
The wider 2.56m width “Statesman” model allows for increased central walkway space and growing space. The Statesman series is offered in two lengths of 3.8m and 5m respectively.
The ultimate sized glasshouse is “The Beast” which is 3.2m wide and 6.3m long.  The Beast is the big daddy Glasshouse from Taylor Built by Redpath, and suits the larger hobby grower, Lifestyle block holder or the more serious nurseryman.
Many standard features are built into all Taylor Built by Redpath glasshouse models (see these detailed specifications below) and there is a wide selection of accessories also available such as aluminium shelves, extra roof vents, extra louvre windows, double doors on some models, automatic opening roof vents, “Throwover” shadecloth cover for summertime cooling, free standing staging shelf units, shadecloth support clips and crop support hanger rings etc.

The structural frame is an aluminium silver finish. The frame is the same robust frame that is used for the Polycarbonate clad Taylor Built by Redpath greenhouses, and you can swap out the glass cladding for 6mm Polycarbonate if you desire at a later date. This year we have stopped offering a powder coating option as an environmental policy, although your local powder coating provider will likely be able to complete this service for you. 

The glasshouse base dimensions are shown on the link HERE , it’s important to get the base dimensions right when you set up your glasshouse base; The alloy frame wall height is 1.5m on all models & when combined with your 150 or 200mm base you will have a 1.65/1.70m sidewall height.  When building your base the popular materials used might be treated timber, cement, blocks or bricks. A comprehensive set of instructions and assembly drawings are supplied with every kitset.
