Elite buildings, with the exception of the GX and iGro, require a base of some description whether it is timber, aluminium or brick.

Many Elite buildings are supplied with an aluminium built in base as standard, but for the larger greenhouses and lean-to range Elite can offer a separate 5” tall aluminium base. Aluminium is used, as unlike other materials, it will not discolour or rust and can also be powder coated to suit your greenhouse. Opting for an aluminium base not only eliminates the need for a traditional brick base but also allows you to sit the greenhouse straight onto any solid foundation, soil or grass. Elite’s aluminium bases can only be guaranteed to fit an Elite Greenhouse or Lean-to.

If you have built a brick base, Elite’s anchoring kit, which consists of 10 unequal aluminium angles, plastic plugs and stainless steel screws, is a useful acquisition. The aluminium angles are bolted to the cill and then, with the use of the plug and screw, are secured to the brickwork.

These brackets fit into the pre-machined bolt slots located in the Elite aluminium base to provide a secure attachment to a solid foundation.

Aluminium base legs bolt to the base corners and, therefore, make it possible to anchor the greenhouse to the ground. They are also useful to use as angle sections and if you have concreted your aluminium base into the ground and now wish to move your greenhouse, then replacement legs will need to be purchased
