Inside Top Lock - A top bolt lock is included for the inside of this Rion greenhouse.
Door Handle Holder - A built-in holder conveniently allows you to open the door of your greenhouse and secure it on windy days.
Aluminum Door Hinges - The door hinges of this Rion greenhouse are made of aluminum for added strength and durability.
Included Roof Vent - This Rion greenhouse includes one roof vent to help promote interior air flow and keep your plants comfortable. These vents have been newly redesigned with aluminum frames instead of plastic for added durability and ease of assembly.
Reinforcement Cable - The frame of the greenhouse is further strengthened and secured with a high-strength reinforcement cable.
Sealing Rubber Strips - The greenhouse is further weatherized by sealing rubber strips that act a gasket.
Extruded Resin Frame - Rion greenhouses have sturdy and durable frames made of extruded resin. This resin provides more insulation than typical aluminum greenhouses. The frames are UV-protected and the green color blends in nicely with outdoor garden settings. They assemble quickly with Rion's unique Pin & Lock System.
6mm Polycarbonate Side Panels - The twin-wall polycarbonate side panels in Rion greenhouses have been increased to 6mm from 4mm. This provides much more insulation and improved product strength. The panels are completely UV-protected and provide high wind and hail resistance as they are virtually unbreakable.
Automatic Roof Vent Opener - The metal cylinder in the opener responds to an increase in outside temperature by automatically and gradually opening the roof vent or louver window. As the temperature cools, a spring closes the vent or window and resets the piston. Automatic openers are extremely convenient for maintaining the proper greenhouse temperature and preventing your plants from getting overheated on hot summer days. The automatic openers from Rion are designed for simple installation.
Base Kit - The heavy duty base kit for Rion greenhouses is not absolutely necessary, but it provides an easy way to ensure that your structure is absolutely square. It is made of a durable plastic with a honeycomb-like lattice that is closed and U-shaped for increased rigidity. The base also increase the height of the greenhouse by a couple of inches. It is easy to assemble and no additional tools are required and it is safer than the bases of other greenhouses as there are no sharp metal edges. In high wind areas, concrete footers or additional anchors are recommended.
Extra Roof Vent - Proper ventilation is key to keeping your plants healthy in all climates. Extra roof vents help further circulate fresh air throughout your greenhouse. One is recommended every 4 feet for ideal ventilation. The roof vent includes a lever for adjusting the opening. Pair the roof vent with an optional automatic roof vent opener to simplify managing the temperature inside the greenhouse on hot days.
Plant Hangers & Anchoring Kit - Coming in packs of 10, the plant hangers easily clip to the greenhouse frame and can be used for supporting hanging baskets or climbing plants and vines. They can also clip onto the bottom of the frame to be used in anchoring the greenhouse to a solid foundation for protection in high winds.
Side Louver Window - The elegant 2' x 2' side louver windows add additional ventilation to the sides of your greenhouse. Each window can be paired with an optional side louver window automatic opener for hassle-free operation on hot days when opening windows and vents is important. The louver window is easy to install and replaces an entire upper or lower panel in the side of your greenhouse. It has a silver metal frame.
