                    A. EXTERNAL ROLLER BLINDS
A. BLINDS
Each Harrod Superior Greenhouse is supplied with a set
of sophisticated grey external roller blinds on one side of
the roof that are hugely beneficial in reducing the heat
and scorching to delicate plants from as early as February onwards. Protecting your greenhouse externally rather than internally has two main advantages. Even with shade netting a greenhouse can still overheat as the sun’s rays have already reached the greenhouse and raised the internal temperature. An exterior blind stops the sun’s rays hitting the greenhouse glass, whilst also offering shade. Covering one side of the roof, the blinds are very neat in appearance and simple to operate with a supplied reach pole. Cords and pulleys aren’t necessary and drilling isn’t needed. The blinds are built to last and sit unobtrusively retracted on the greenhouse roof ridge when not in use. In tests, external blinds reduced the midday sun by 10 degrees centigrade!
B. HANGING BASKET RAILS
Inferior greenhouse models avoid hanging any extra unnecessary weight from the roof. The superior strength of the Harrod greenhouse aluminium frame allows two strong hanging basket rails to be fitted to the roof, providing the perfect place to hang floral or trailing tomato baskets whilst making use of every inch of greenhouse growing space and therefore freeing up space on your staging.
C. LOW THRESHOLD AND WIDE DOOR(S)
The no step, low threshold doors prevent tripping and allow perfect access for wheelchairs and wheelbarrows, whilst retaining the strong integral base round the greenhouse base for extra strength. If the greenhouse is being erected on a hardstanding area an optional stainless steel ramp is available. The 6ft wide model comes with a
2 foot wide single door. On greenhouses 8ft wide or larger, 2 x 2ft (4ft opening) is provided. If the greenhouse is being erected on a hardstanding area an optional stainless steel ramp is available.
D. GUTTER AND DOWNPIPES
The strong eaves sections (up to 130% heavier) are supplied with heavy duty braces and allow the large integral gutters to collect a greater amount of rainwater. At nearly twice the weight of other gutters, the incorporated box section also helps to improve rigidity. The extra strength provided by the eaves and large gutters also means stronger downpipes. The downpipes (30mm rigid pipes) are supplied with sufficient fittings to direct rainwater into water butts.
