A Pyramid provides a simple but unusual building in which to enjoy yourself relaxing in your Garden.

Type of Finish
Polyester powder coating protects the aluminium frame from tarnishing with exposure to the elements and is available in a wide range of colours. It is a durable long lasting finish, a bit like enamelling.
We have a range of standard colours to choose from but you can also nominate a special colour (using the RAL numbering system) if for example you want to match with the finish of your house nearby
The standard colour choices are:
Rubber Glazing Strip (this is to be in the same drawer as powder coating)
Janssens’ louvre vents are a generous size (opening of 69cm x 93cm) giving great ventilation. The louvre frame is always supplied in black, but being a neutral colour it nearly always blends in. Automatic openers are available for louvres but we suggest you automate roof vents but leave louvre vents manual (unless extreme weather is forecast they can be left open in summer and closed in winter). We have allowed for two louvre vents in the basic Pyramid price but you can never have too much ventilation on a warm summer day.
The maximum number of vents is based on the size you have selected above.
Top hinged windows can surprisingly change the look and feel of the Pyramid, aesthetically adding a sense of solidity.
Here you can change your louvre vents for top hinged windows if you prefer and if you wish you may add additional windows to enhance the ventilation capability.
For Pyramids in exposed sites you can boost the strength with the addition of reinforcement bars. They are fitted to the inner glazing bars.
Ornate aluminium ‘retro’ panels, available in three designs, which give a stunning look.
There are three designs of panel to choose from:
Double Sliding doors have been included as standard but here you have a choice to change to hinged if you prefer.
Hinged doors give a Greenhouse a more traditional look than sliding doors. Janssens’ Hinged Doors are fitted with hydraulic door closers to pull them closed automatically and they are fitted with a lock.
Lowered Sliding Door Entrance
The standard door entrance has a threshold bar going across at ground level which is 118mm high (to be stepped over). For most customers this is not an issue but where a lower threshold is desired – for example for wheelchair access we offer a service to modify the door entrance to be only 40mm. The Customer can place concrete slabs on either side of this lowered door threshold to be flush with the top of it meaning effectively there will be no lip to step over.
Lowered Sliding Door Entrance
Lowered Hinged Door Entrance
The standard hinged door entrance has a door threshold (step) of 118mm high. For most customers this is not an issue but if you would prefer to having this lower we provide an option of modifying the door entrance and lengthening the doors to suit. The doors open outwards and when we lower the door threshold and lengthen the doors they will have less clearance between the bottom of the door and the ground – so it will only suit where the ground outside slopes away from the Pavillion or does not have stones that will catch under the door.
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. Each seedbed frame is made from aluminium 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.
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.

If you are buying a ‘glass to ground’ greenhouse (i.e. not a dwarf wall model) and have a long established flat and level lawn, a concrete foundation is not needed and we can build directly onto it – but otherwise our construction service price is based on any foundations, ground works and walls being prepared by the customer in advance of our arrival on site.
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
The basic lead time for the Pyramid is 6 weeks in Black (RAL9005) or Green (RAL 6009).
For other colours add 2 weeks.
If a low door threshold or our construction service is ordered add two weeks.
Tips and tricks
Model illustrated is the 3.1m Pyramid
Eaves height (H1)
Ridge Height (H2)
Max. Doorway Width
Please note the ridge height includes the Aspiromatic vent which is 27cm (11 ins) approx.
We can supply Glass for the sides with a tint in standard colours like grey or green.
K Glass is horticultural glass with a coating which greatly lowers its K value (heat loss value). With K glass you can have the benefits of insulation without the downside of not being able to see through it clearly (like is the case with twin wall polycarbonate). K Glass is not toughened so is not as safe as toughened glass (which shatters into tiny pieces rather than big shards) when it breaks. We will be pleased to quote for it on request.
Extra Hinged doors may be added to your Pavillion. A single door is included with the 3.1m width model and this may be upgraded to double doors if desired.
