The Robinsons Ratcliffe 8'7"(2602mm) greenhouse

The majestic Ratcliffe at 8’7” wide can be built to any length using 8’1” extension modules. The combined use of our box section ridge and R-box glazing bars provide stability with the Robinsons unique Pro-cap glazing system providing the added strength required whilst retaining the elegant finish expected in such a feature greenhouse.

In addition the cast aluminium spandrels on each glazing bar at eaves and ridge height increase the strength and improve the Victorian look. To accommodate the faster flow of rainwater running off the 45 degree pitch Victorian roof the elegant Victorian style extra wide guttering ensures that the water runs into the downpipes for collection and use if you wish. The Ratcliffe is well appointed with adequate ventilation provided by plentiful automatic roof vents and an generous number of louvre vents, both of which vary in number depending upon the length of greenhouse.

Options



This super quality roller blind is specially designed for the Robinsons greenhouse and bolts to the glazing bars at the top of the roof. You can then pull the blind down and hook on by the gutter. Blinds are ideal to help you control the environment during the hotter weather. Internal blinds have the advantage that they are not savaged by the wind and they still allow beneficial warmth in whilst stopping harmful direct sun burn. Can also be fitted on a side of greenhouse.

These simple systems consist of Horticultural grade shade netting specially made into a kit for one side of the roof. The 8ft wide net also drapes partially down the side of the greenhouse (depending on the size of the roof). The kit hooks on when in use or you can roll it up and tie back when not required.

For the ultimate in automation add these automatic louvre openers and fix them to your louvres. That way you can be sure that you’re never caught out by a sunny spell.

Optional 6 slat louvres

Fully height adjustable, our optional staging and shelving is extremely strong as it is bolted to the side of the greenhouses using tubular cantilever supports. You can set it to your perfect working height along the complete length of your greenhouse and with no vertical legs this then leaves plenty of room underneath for storage of heavy items such as bags of compost and large post or extra growing space.

Dwarf wall models. We can adapt most Robinsons models to sit on a standard height dwarf wall, roughly 2ft high. In addition there are a number of easy modifctaions that can be made to the greenhouse which will help you if you are needing a slightly more bespoke greenhouse.

Optional victorian ridge cresting

Our integral aluminium guttering is extremely neat and strong being built into the design of the greenhouse at eaves height. Two 25mm PVC downpipes take the rainwater away and we provide a range of optional extra fittings should you wish to collect and use this valuable natural resource.

Three different finishes

You can have your Robinsons greenhouse specially powder coated in a white, Ivory or green. Powder coating is an extremely durable method of adding colour to your greenhouse. We guarantee powder coated finishes against flacking and discolouring for 10 years, though in reality its likely the powder coated finish will stay looking new for the lifetime of the greenhouse. Bar capping is provided in a matching colour providing a very neat look.
