Alton greenhouses at Gardencraft, Porthmadog, Gwynedd, North Wales
The Alton was Britain's first greenhouse specially designed for the domestic market back in 1921. The modern Alton has a pedigree stretching back more than 75 years and has earned a reputation for innovative design, robust construction, and outstanding durability.
Made in Western Red Cedar, Alton greenhouses are stronger than most aluminium, give better heat retention and are highly resistant to wind damage. Design features include an easy-glide sliding door (kerbless for easy wheelbarrow access), pre-glazed puttyless lights, sturdy guttering and downpipes and a unique ventilation system which discourages botytris or grey mould.
Alton greenhouses are manufactured from the finest Canadian Western Red Cedar - a managed and replanted natural resource. If any part of the cedar framework rots or decays within TEN YEARS of purchase, Alton will replace it promptly and FREE OF CHARGE. This free guarantee is in addition to your statutory rights and is not conditional upon you re-treating the cedar frame
All greenhouses should be erected with a perimeter plinth between the bottom of the frame and the ground. Alton provide purpose-designed kerbs in pre-cast concrete sections. They are robust, attractive and impervious to frost and water. Each has built-in anchorage points ready for bolting the greenhouse firmly down into place.
Many greenhouses have small overlapped glazing panels which are difficult and dangerous to clean and which eventually form a slimy green deposit of algae in the overlaps. Alton greenhouses have full-length glazing panels giving maximum light transmission. They are held in place with cedar glazing beads - so there is no putty to go brittle and fall out. 4mm toughened glass is available as an optional extra instead of the standard 3mm glass.
