The Sunglo Model 1700D Lean-To Greenhouse (8X13) has been a favorite of gardeners throughout the country for over four decades. Classically designed by former aeronautical engineers and made in America, this model includes the premium package to give you every accessory you would need to start growing right out of the box.
Sunglo greenhouses feature extremely sturdy construction with a strong riveted aluminum frame. They have been tested to withstand up to 2500 lbs. of snow load and wind gusts of up to 80 MPH. The heavy gauge DR acrylic plexiglass has 100 times the impact strength of regular single pane glass.
The Sunglo Model 1700D can be easily assembled with just standard hand tools. A detailed instruction manual and installation video is included, and your greenhouse can be ready for use in just a weekend or so depending on how much help you have. All of the components are pre-cut and very easy to work with.
Sunglo greenhouses are extremely efficient as they are constructed with two wall panels. The two layers of high impact acrylic plexiglass create a dead-air space to provide ten times the insulation of a single pane of glass, keeping your heating and cooling costs low.
|The Therma-Truss© system is unique to
Sunglo greenhouses. The cross-section of
the greenhouse wall above shows two layers
of high impact acrylic which forms "dead-air"
space. This design makes the walls
extremely solid while still diffusing sunlight
and providing excellent insulation.
|The acrylic plexiglass walls found in all Sunglo greenhouses are made with a special UV inhibitor, which will resist discoloration and deterioration over time. This will also enhance your plants growth by preventing excess UV exposure, particularly in the summer months.

Sunglo Greenhouses Shipping Information
The factory for Sunglo Greenhouses is in Kent, WA. Therefore the shipping time to eastern states is a bit longer than to the rest of the country. Curbside delivery is included with every order, and a liftgate service is included at no additional cost when available by the shipper.
Curbside delivery means that the delivery company will lower the pallet(s) off the delivery truck at the end of your driveway, though they will usually try to back the truck onto your driveway for a closer delivery. The driver is not responsible for unpacking or moving pallets to the build location.
When your greenhouse arrives from the shipper, it is recommended for the customer to have at least two people available to help move each piece in the pallet from the curb to wherever the structure will be assembled. Though the entire pallet(s) will weigh a lot, each piece is manageable by one or two people.
We will email you tracking information as soon as it is available. And when your order arrives at the shipping terminal closest to your home, the dispatcher there will call you to set up the delivery appointment, usually for the next day or whenever is convenient for you.
