Wrought iron garden greenhouses

Wrought iron garden greenhouses are garden structures designed for growing plants, protecting plants from the elements, and creating an environment conducive to growth.

Unlike traditional glass greenhouses, wrought iron greenhouses are characterized by their wrought iron frame, which adds an elegant aesthetic touch to the garden space.

Restoration of a glazed greenhouse

This elegant 1920s greenhouse was entirely revamped.
It was more or less abandoned and had suffered a great amount of corrosion.
The glass panes were all removed so the structure could be cleaned, restored and repainted.
They were then replaced or repositioned one by one.
The guardrail that runs along the top of the greenhouse was initially used for installing the gratings; it may serve again one day but its appearance alone deserved a restoration.

Why choose wrought iron for a garden greenhouse?

The choice of wrought iron for a garden greenhouse can be motivated by several reasons, including aesthetic, structural and functional.

Wrought iron is renowned for its elegance and timeless aesthetic. Wrought iron greenhouses add a touch of charm and sophistication to your garden, transforming the greenhouse into a decorative element in its own right. The artistic design of wrought iron can also be harmoniously integrated into different garden styles, whether traditional, romantic or contemporary.

Wrought iron is a sturdy, durable material that can withstand outdoor elements, including harsh weather. A well-maintained wrought iron greenhouse can last for many years, making it a long-term investment for your garden. Wrought iron offers excellent structural strength. It can support the glass or polycarbonate panels used for the walls and roof of the greenhouse, thus ensuring the stability of the structure.

Wrought iron greenhouses can be customized according to your needs and preferences. You have the flexibility to choose the size, shape, ornamental details, and other specific features to create a greenhouse that perfectly matches your vision. Wrought iron greenhouses are designed with glass or translucent walls that allow excellent penetration of natural light. This creates an ideal environment for plants to grow, as they benefit from good light throughout the day.

What is our manufacturing process for a wrought iron garden greenhouse?

Manufacturing a wrought iron garden greenhouse is a complex process that requires skills in metallurgy and ironwork. Here is a general overview of the manufacturing process of a wrought iron garden greenhouse:

First, a detailed plan of the greenhouse is drawn up, taking into account the desired dimensions, shape, style and aesthetic details. Technical specifications, such as the size of glass panels, arrangement of doors and windows, and ventilation systems, are defined.

Wrought iron is chosen as the main material for the greenhouse structure. Other necessary materials, such as glass panels, fixings, hinges, and decorative wrought iron elements, are selected.

Wrought iron bars are cut to the appropriate size based on plan specifications. The wrought iron is heated to a high temperature to make it malleable, then it is forged and shaped by hand or using machines to create the structural components, such as the hoops, uprights, crosspieces, and supports. decorative elements. Then the wrought iron components are assembled following the design plan, using welding, riveting or bolting techniques, depending on the method chosen by the manufacturer. The structure of the greenhouse takes shape, with the hoops, posts and other support elements.

Glass or polycarbonate panels are installed into the structure to create the walls and roof of the greenhouse. Fixing systems secure the panels in place. Aesthetic wrought iron details, such as scrollwork, decorative designs and doorknobs, are added to the greenhouse. The structure can be painted or treated to protect it from corrosion.

The greenhouse is quality controlled to ensure that all components are correctly assembled, the structure is stable and secure, and the aesthetic details meet specifications. Once the greenhouse is completed and inspected, it is transported to the installation site. On-site installation may require proper foundations and secure fixing to the ground.
