Glazing systems


Traditional greenhouse glazing system

This glazing system is simple and elegant, with narrow glazing bars that adhere to Victorian design principles. Externally you do not see any nuts and bolts, but internally they are visible. It is a beautiful working greenhouse and for that reason, it is our most frequently used system. Less aluminium in the structure allows it to be a lower cost than our Thomas Messenger option.
