Please see the table below for sizes and spec of Apollo greenhouses. All Apollo models have an Eaves Height of 1.36m (4’5″) and a Ridge Height of 2.09m (6’8″).
From novice to expert, the 1.93m (6’4”) wide Apollo greenhouse is available in 5 sizes to meet the needs of any gardener. The Apollo design is based on the Venus with the added benefit of a low threshold entrance for easy access.
There is a single sliding door which can be positioned to the left or the right. The Apollo is equipped with 1 or 2 roof vents, depending on size and the structure has been strengthened with the inclusion of roof braces, with additional side braces in the Apollo 7500.
The low threshold entrance distinguishes the Apollo from the Venus range. Not having to step over a perimeter base reduces any risk of tripping.
The complete Vitavia range is available in both Powder Coated Green or *Anodised Aluminium (*Anodisation is a process the aluminum goes through to keep it looking pristine throughout its life)
Does the Apollo greenhouse need a base?
No, the apollo greenhouse features an integrated base as standard. If required a DIY timber or masonary base may be constructed but this is not a requirement of the design.

Horticultural or toughened glass?
The difference between horticultural or toughened glass is weight and how the materail handles when shattered.
Horticultural glass or greenhouse glass has traditionally been relatively low grade both in thickness and the overall quality of the panes. This does not make it a bad product because we don't necessarily need high quality glass for horticultural applications, it still provides protection and lets in plenty of light which, after all, is all we need it for. The downside from a safety point of view is that it is more brittle and shatters into shards when broken. In my opionon, horticultural glass is perfectly fine for a reasonably shetlered glasshouse in a suburban setting but should not be used in exposed areas or where young children are regularly playing.
Toughened or safety glass is more costly than horticultural grade but is 10 times stronger and, when broken, shatters into very small pieces in the same manner as a car window. We would recommend that toughened glass is used in any exposed location and where safety is a concern.
