Lean-to greenhouses EcoSlider EW

A lean-to greenhouse is a greenhouse that is built next to a wall of a house or any other type of building. Usually these greenhouses are built next to the southern wall of a house. Lean-to greenhouses allow to save space.

This option is more convenient due to several reasons:

  1. the wall is supporting whole construction and serves as a bearing element of the greenhouse frame;
  2. northern side of a lean-to greenhouse is protected from cold and northern winds, thus allowing to significantly save heat;
  3. it is easier to install heating in a lean-to greenhouse since there will be no difficulties to connect heating elements to the power grid;
  4. if a building next to which the lean-to greenhouse is built is a heated building, it will significantly reduce costs of greenhouse heating;
  5. an option to create an entry into the greenhouse directly from the house is also available.

Foundation of a lean-to greenhouse is made of special reinforced beams with inner reinforcements, which add extra durability.

This type of greenhouses is equipped with 4mm, 8mm, 10mm, 16 mm or even thicker polycarbonate cover that increases heat insulation qualities and makes the greenhouse more resistant to heavy snow loads. Also an option to install fully transparent monolith polycarbonate is available to customers. Monolith polycarbonate has all qualities of cellular polycarbonate, but it is as transparent as glass.

Heikkinen manufactures these greenhouse models in custom sizes requested by the customer, however currently a series of lean-to greenhouses is undergoing development and soon will be available on the market.

A lean-to greenhouse can be equipped with automatic vents to improve ventilation of the greenhouse.
