All of the Popular Greenhouses are six feet wide, but there are a wide range of models in varying sizes, colours and materials. Whichever one you choose, you’ll find that the structure is simple, durable, and will fit into whatever type of garden, allotment or yard you have. There are thousands of home gardeners who have been successfully using the same Halls glasshouse for years without ever feeling the need to replace or upgrade it.
Here’s a look at the Halls Popular Greenhouse choices available.
Size and Detailing: There are four different sizes to choose from, from a compact 6 x 4 feet, to medium-sized 6 x 6 and 6 x 8 models, up to a wide 6 x 10, meaning there’s a size to fit just about all types of home gardens. The largest greenhouse has two roof vents which open to allow hot air to escape; the smaller sizes each have one roof vent. All have built-in rain water gutters and a single sliding glass door.
Frames and Base: All of the greenhouses feature a rust-free, aluminum frame with an optional steel base (with posts which can be cemented deep into the ground) for those who want an even stronger, sturdier structure and a little extra height. The frames are available in two colours, silver or green.
Glazing: The standard glass used in building Halls Popular Greenhouses is single-sheet 3mm horticultural glazing. You can also choose 3mm long pane toughened single-sheet safety glass, which meets the British standard BS6206A. The toughened glazing is a good choice if wind is an issue where you live, because it will stand up well to strong gusts; it’s also a good idea if kids will be playing near your greenhouse – if the glass happens to shatter it will break into pebbles instead of dangerous shards.
Options: There are a number of terrific add-ons you can select for your Halls Popular Greenhouse:
Automatic Roof Vent Opener: uses an ingenious wax-melting system to open the vent when it’s hot inside the glasshouse, and close the vent when the interior cools down. An extra roof vent can also be added to smaller greenhouses.
Louvre Window Vent: allows extra cool air into your greenhouse via slats controlled by a small lever. An automatic opener, similar to the roof vent opener, is also available with this option.
Shading Kit: 12 feet of flexible material clip onto the frame to protect against the sun’s rays.
Staging: a variety of shelves and benches which match the appearance of the greenhouse is available for plants, pots and tools.
Cold Frames: matching frames with safety glass and sliding lids, for plants and seedlings which need extra warmth from the sun.
All Halls Popular Greenhouses come with a 10-year warranty on the frame and base, although owners of these greenhouses will tell you that they generally last a lot longer than that. They’re a perfect choice for small-to-medium sized gardens.
