Important Information: Base Information and Anchoring
This Palram greenhouse is not supplied with a floor. It is essential that it is constructed on a suitable concrete or slab base. The optional Palram Anchoring Kit adds extra protection to your greenhouse from strong winds, protecting it in gusts of up to 60 mph. Using the anchoring kit, the greenhouse can be secured to the base of your choosing and anchored into soft or hard surfaces. It is easy to install and, if ordered, will be delivered with your greenhouse.

Description

Garden owners choose to take to the soil for many reasons, whether they're invested in growing organic fruit and vegetables that beats anything sold in the local supermarket, or simply want a place to unwind after a long day at work, with a sunhat on their head and some soil between their fingers. The Balance, with its 8x8 footprint and hybrid polycarbonate panels, is versatile enough to satisfy the needs of almost any hobby gardener.

This model – the Silver – comes with an unpainted aluminium frame that creates clean and metallic lines throughout the structure. The Silver is popular among those who want the classic garden greenhouse look, but some customers may want to opt for a powder-coated finish, available in Green.

Features

A combination of transparent glazing for the walls and a 'frosted' twin-wall glazing for the roof panels are used to help produce the balanced environment needed for optimal growth. On one hand, transparent polycarbonate walls give clarity to the plants inside and provide the classic greenhouse look. Meanwhile, twin-wall panels offer a greater degree of sun diffusion that creates a more even temperature for plants. Plants that may otherwise be in the shade for too long in a daily cycle will enjoy additional sunlight. Other spots in the greenhouse that have a habit of overheating and damaging plants will have a reduction in harsh and direct sunlight.

What makes the 8x8 Palram Balance Silver truly special is its expanded width of eight feet compared to Palram's more compact models. This allows for a set of double doors, which are ideal for easy access when transporting large plants or equipment. A low threshold doorway also makes it easy to enter by wheelchair or to push through barrows of soil. 

The Balance keeps to the traditional and trusted greenhouse design of an apex roof, prioritising headspace for the full length of the structure. With a peak interior height of over seven feet, you are unlikely to need to worry about stooping over while tending to plants. This size is also ideal for anyone hoping to grow larger plants, such as tomatoes or strawberry bushes, without bumping up against any limitations. 

To further your control of your greenhouse's temperature and humidity, the 8x8 Balance features a manually adjustable vent in the roof. Simply open this and pin the double doors open with the magnetic door catches included with your greenhouse to create a draft. While not using your greenhouse, these doors are ready to be locked by your own padlock.

Accessories

Palram offers a range of possibilities for expanding your greenhouse's practical functions that is seldom seen in other greenhouses at this price range. The Automatic Vent Opener requires no manual adjustment or electrical input to function. A wax cylinder inside the opener expands as the ambient increases to around 12-15 degrees celsius, and in turn causes the vent to start opening, thus cooling your greenhouse. This is an excellent way to maintain a moderate temperature within your 8x8 Balance, with minimal effort. 

Other accessories can help increase your usable space. For example, one of our favourite accessories is the Heavy Duty Shelf Kit, which is easily installed on the wall of your Balance greenhouse and supports up to 40kg. Its modular design means you can add as many shelves as you like alongside one another in a seamless manner. This shelf can be easily removed and positioned elsewhere, but those especially concerned with portability might find a lot to love in the freestanding Steel Work Bench, which has two levels to provide ample room for storage, and an adjustable lower shelf.

Additional Information

Customers are expected to assemble their Palram 8x8 Balance Silver at home, and many find it is best to set aside a weekend and get help from a friend or two to have the best experience of putting your Balance together. 

Feel secure in the knowledge that your product is covered by the manufacturer's five-year warranty, with no additional charge.
