    Default Help with greenhouse identification.

    Hi all,

    just wondering if i can get some help identifying a greenhouse that I'm now the proud owner of. Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

    I really want to know the manufacturer so I can get a replacement roof vent, get it set up and get all the plants out of my kitchen .

    I've looked around the frame and I can't see the name stamped anywhere on it. There looks like there was the manufactures name on it before, but it's rubbed off

    Thanks in advance

    Your glazing clips look like these

    Elite Greenhouse Glazing Spring Clips - North East Greenhouses

    so it could be an Elite greenhouse.

    Thanks.

    Are those types of clips specific to elites? I thought they were just "G" glazing clips, but I've only been looking at greenhouses for the last week or so, so could very much be wrong!

    Hi and welcome!
    Many greenhouse makes are similar and have interchangeable parts. I assume you're looking for a replacement window. Do you have any of the fittings for it?

    Hello and welcome. Agree with Thelma, The way the door fastens together looks the same as an Elite too.

    All I have at the moment is some replacement perspex glazing and the fittings to attach them.

    Excellent thanks, I've emailed Elite asking them if it is one of theirs or not.

    If I can't get a positive id on it, does anyone have any experience of bodging a vent from another manufacturer onto it?

    I think you can buy generic/universal openers.

    Sorry, but I need to understand what you need - is it a window frame or a window opener? From the photo you don't have the window frame itself. these normally slide along the profile of the ridge of the greenhouse which acts as a hinge. You also need a window stay to keep it open - this has holes in it to adjust the size of the opening.

    As an extra, you can buy automatic openers for these windows and they will work with most GH windows.

    So, tell me again, what do you have and what do you need?
    Look on the bright side
