Meet the Makers
A Rhino greenhouse is the perfect environment for your plants and it looks beautiful. Strength, safety and quality is at the heart of every Rhino and the Premium range is no different.
We design and manufacture the Rhino in our own UK factory and sell direct to the public, helping us pass any savings on directly to the customer.
Included as standard with the Rhino Premium 6x12 greenhouse:
- 2 Triple Roof Vents
- 3 Side Louvre Vents
- 4 Automatic Roof Vent Openers
- Storm Locks
Rhinos are the most ventilated greenhouses in their class. Each of our Rhino Premium greenhouses are fitted with as much roof ventilation as possible, by using a mixture of single, double and triple roof vents we're able to ensure the maximum area is achieved. Don't worry about forgetting to open your roof vents either, ours are powered by solar-powered automatic vent openers.
Optimal circulation can only be achieved through a combination of roof vents and side louvres. To allow you to take complete control of your ventilation, each Rhino is fitted with our high quality Rhino five-blade louvre vents. These louvre vents allow cool air to enter from the side and circulate up through the greenhouse before escaping through the roof vents.
Adequate ventilation is absolutely crucial to successful growing under glass. There is not another greenhouse on the market that has more ventilation than a Rhino. Better still, it's all included in the price.
We've produced a handy guide explaining why ventilation is so important and how to optimise your greenhouse temperature.
Keep yourself and your family safe with Rhino's combination glazing system: Toughened Safety Glass and Rubber Glazing Beads. Perfect for exposed locations and families with young children and pets.
The 6x12 Rhino Premium comes with our Rhino Tuff 4mm toughened safety glass as standard. This glass is 33% thicker than most greenhouse glass and with safety in mind, even the edges are rounded so that you don't cut yourself during installation. Eventhough breakages are less likely, our safety glass is designed to shatter into tiny pieces rather than big shards, minimising the chance of injury. Oh and with this Grade A glass, you can achive ultimate clarity for maximum light.
The unique Rhino glazing system locks each pane of glass in place along its entire length, using long rubber beads. With our glazing method, each pane becomes an integral part of the whole frame providing strength and greater stability along with our box-section glazing bead. This system prevents the glass from being blown or sucked out of the frame and pushing on the glass only locks the beads more tightly into the frame.
When compared with the glazing that comes as standard on most greenhouses, the Rhino ranges come up trumps every time.

We wouldn't sit on the roof of a Rhino greenhouse if it wasn't so strong! Whether you're in the Outer Hebrides or the Channel Islands our Rhinos help keep growing locations secure, no matter the weather. Each Rhino is engineered for strength and stability, which is why many of our customers choose Rhino.
Each Rhino frame has around 60% more aluminium than similarly priced models. But it’s not just the weight, it’s the clever design of the Rhino that provides its inherent strength. There are 3 key factors that contribute the strength of the Rhino range:
- Strong T-section bracing
- An integral base
- The Rhino Tuff glazing system
The Rhino Premium is a step up from the Classic model, with even stronger T-section bracing replacing the tubular bracing of the Classic; positioned at every strut of the framework of the eaves and ridge of the the greenhouse, you can be confident in the security of the structure.The integral base and Rhino Tuff glazing system also add to the overall strength, creating a solid and airtight framework from the top of the roof to the ground.
We’ve tested the snow loading capacity of a Rhino by putting half a tonne of sand bags on the roof, so it's ready for whatever the Great British weather may throw at it.
Unlike some greenhouses, every Rhino includes a strong aluminium base in the price. Not onl does this integral base provide a strong foundation but it also allows our The Rhino to be erected onto firm, level soil, concrete bases or paving slabs. The appropriate ground anchors and fixings are provided with each greenhouse.
All Rhino greenhouses now include a low threshold door and ramp within the price. There’s no longer a trip hazard at the doorway and on 8, 10 and 12ft wide models there is plenty of width for a wheelchair or wheelbarrow to enter with ease.
Every Rhino greenhouse comes with two hanging basket rails.
With a strong frame, the roof can easily handly this extra load, so you can rest assured that your hanging baskets will thrive. Handing basket rails also free up lots of space on your staging.
Every Rhino greenhouse also comes with large integral gutters as well as downpipes and bends so you can collect and use the natural rainwater that your plants love.
There is an optional two-in-one kit available at an extra cost which joins the two pipes at the rear of the greenhouse and allows both gutters to feed into one water butt.
Nothing says more about the quality of a Rhino greenhouse than our 25 Year Guarantee.
A generation of gardeners can rest assured that the frame and even the powder coated colour finish are covered, in the unlikely event that the greenhouse fails.
Our Rhino greenhouses offer great flexibility when it comes to base options. Unlike most other greenhouse brands, our Rhinos can be erected on soil. This is only due to the strength created by its sturdy base and framework. As long as it is level and fully compacted, in most situations soil is the perfect solution.
Alternatively, hardstanding bases are also suitable. As long as they're smooth and level, paving slabs, concrete bases and brick or block perimeter plinths can also be used.
More information regarding base preparation and base plans for Rhino greenhouses is also available.
This Rhino Premium greenhouse stands at 6ft 4ins wide and 12ft 3ins long with a ridge height of 7ft 7ins.
Every Rhino greenhouse is delivered with a comprehensive set of instructions. With help at key moments, a competent DIY enthusiast can erect this size of greenhouse over a weekend.
However, this time and effort can be eliminated by using a professional installer who will quickly and efficiently erect, glaze and anchor down the greenhouse on your pre-prepared site – either soil or hardstanding. See our Guidance Notes on Site and Base Preparation and Installation.
Installer charges for this size (depending on location and exact specification) are from £290.
