Do I need a vent arm?

Ventilation and temperature are highly important factors in maintaining the ideal growing environment in your greenhouse. An automated vent arm is highly useful for any greenhouse owner, as it helps to regulate these factors. This vent arm will automatically open the window when the temperature reaches your desired level, and will close again when the temperature drops. It is adjustable, and doesn't require electricity, which means no running costs.

  • Adjustable temperature range

Customer Reviews
Rating: 1/5

"I bought the Lacewing™ 6ft x 4ft Essential Silver Aluminium Frame Greenhouse with Base for my allotment. It took two of us three days to erect (not counting the base). The instructions were difficult to follow and some of the tasks difficult to complete - just why didn't the instructions mention that the fixing brackets (to the base) needed to be fitted at the beginning. Now, with the first winds of autumn four of the polycarb panels have blown out. I consider that buying this greenhouse was a complete waste of money. it is clearly not fit for purpose."

"So the greenhouse itself is value for money however you have to have a degree in jigsaws to fit it together. The instructions cant be called instructions..its just a leaflet with part numbers. The pictures showing where one thing fits to another is unrecognisable and doesnt relate to the part
I am experienced in the building trade but it took me hours of blood, sweat and tears..a novice would not be able to do it...worse thsn Ikea
You will sell them as the public are not to know but the negative feedback is entirely warrented

However, this greenhouse is made using galvanised steel with virtually unbreakable panels and so should not be flimsy. If a product does not meet your expectations or you think you may have received a faulty item, please do not hesitate to call customer services to discuss a replacement or a refund."

"Time consuming to assemble. Some of the illustrations are confusing in the assembly instructions. I had to adapt the door to fit, as not illustrated correctly [in my opinion]. As an enthusiastic DIY' er I enjoyed the challenge."

"I was filled with dread at the thought of erecting this greenhouse after reading the reviews. The instructions were a nightmare and things could be explained better!
For anyone reading this before purchasing, I would highly recommend that you ensure you prep every part before constructing ie:making sure you put the extra screws in-situ - this will help your marriage later on when you realise you have missed one and can not possibly get another one in. However, after many hours (possibly 10) we had the greenhouse built and secured on its base and I must say it looks fantastic and is very sturdy. Instructions would be good on attaching the greenhouse to the actual base, my Husband had his power drill out ready to screw it down , but I saved the day (as a wife often does - as we logically think and read instructions) and i had it secured within an hour using the correct clamps.
Overall - a challenge, very fiddly, but marvellous when built.
Must admit though - I wouldn't do it again :-)
