Type of Finish
The Star’s strong aluminium frame comes in either what is called Mill Finish meaning aluminium without any coating, or with a polyester powder coated finish. Mill finish aluminium will tarnish and dull whereas powder coating protects the aluminium from oxidising and you can keep it looking very attractive by simply cleaning it periodically.
The powder coated finish for the Star is available in either Black or Green. The RAL number is a well-known system for identifying colours.
Janssens’ louvre vents are a generous size (opening of 69cm x 93cm) giving great ventilation. One louvre vent is included with the Star but you can add up to two more to increase your ventilation capability.
Low door threshold
The standard door entrance has a threshold bar going across at ground level which is 118mm high (to step over). For most customers this is not an issue but where a lower threshold is desired – for people with difficulty walking we offer a service to modify the door entrance to be only 40mm high. At 70cm wide the doorway in this model is not quite wide enough for a wheelchair.
Don’t be fooled by the name, a seedbed can fulfil many purposes. First and foremost it provides a comfortable surface on which to pot up and tend to plants. You can use it to display plants on and it gains you additional space in the Greenhouse. A seedbed can be fitted with capillary matting to assist even water distribution among your pot plants or you can fit an electric thermostatically controlled heated mat in it to make a propagator.
Multiple units can be fitted. They can be fitted along the full length of the Greenhouse. Each seedbed frame is powder coated in the same colour as your Greenhouse and the tongued and grooved plastic panels which make up the bottom are white. The seedbed is 500mm wide.
The Janssens shelf is an aluminium section 115mm wide. It is useful for small pot plants and odds and ends like gloves, secateurs and other small odds and ends. A shelf also adds to the already powerful strength of the Greenhouse. It is supplied in the same colour as your Greenhouse.
Self-build or constructed by Greenhouse Ireland Craftsmen
Greenhouses may look quick and to build but there is a considerable amount of time and a lot of parts involved, however if you enjoy DIY this is often very enjoyable. With our professional and courteous construction service you will know that the job has been done right first time.
We quote for construction on an individual basis, to obtain a quotation for this Greenhouse that you are pricing please click on the button below.
Our construction service price is based on all foundations, ground works and walls being prepared by the customer in advance of our arrival on site. If you have a long established flat and level lawn, or concrete pad we can build directly onto this.
Details on foundations are available on the instructions tab on this website page, and we will be pleased to discuss any queries you have and if necessary provide further drawings specific to your Greenhouse once an order has been placed.
Our construction service is subject to some terms and conditions (link to the details here).
If ordering our construction service we bring the Greenhouse kit with us so this section is not relevant. If you are buying your Greenhouse to self-build delivery is by truck (lorry) normally. If you have restricted or unsafe access for a truck you will need to order the van delivery service.
Delivery by Truck
When a Greenhouse is bought in kit form (for DIY assembly) at the price shown, it is shipped from the factory and delivery is made with a large lorry fitted with a tail lift. The driver will use a hand operated ‘pallet truck’ to take a tall pallet of glass off the lorry and he will carry the boxes containing the frames off and put them down beside or near to the lorry. The driver’s pallet truck can go onto concrete, tarmac or paving – but it won’t move on gravel or grass (or up steep slopes). The delivery service is basically to the roadside or wherever the driver can access with his pallet truck. It is essential that there be safe parking for the lorry at your entrance if he is unable to park off the road at your property. If this is not possible please choose delivery by van or our construction service (or nominate a location for delivery where a truck can access from where you can arrange for others to move it to your site).
Delivery by van
If delivery in a lorry is not possible we offer a service where we take delivery of your Greenhouse, and deliver it to you on a scheduled delivery run to your area. There is a charge to cover the extra handling and transport costs to provide this service and the lead time will be extended (we can confirm at time of order). We will offload your goods with care to beside our van, the panes of glass can either be stood up against a wall in your garage (they cannot be left lying flat) or we can bring a pallet and stack the panes into it. If ordering this service please advise which you prefer.
The lead time is the estimated length of time from when your order is placed to when delivery is made. This is a guideline only as lead times may vary according to demand and logistical considerations.
DIY Kit Lead Times
Normal lead time is five weeks.
If a low door threshold or our construction service is ordered add two weeks.
