Foster and Pearson Ltd is the only company still faithfully producing glasshouses to the original Victorian design and specification. This is done without compromise, the new castings and timber sections being completely interchangeable with those built in the 19th century. The ironmongery, which includes brass door furniture and window hinges, is all manufactured specifically for our products. The introduction of inferior modern practices has been avoided, for instance, we make our own Whitworth form, square headed nuts and bolts, used slotted screws for the fixings and iron for our castings. These castings are all machined in house and then fitted up by hand. Great care is used in the selection of straight grained timber to ensure stability and longevity. The timbers are primed before assembly ensuring the best protection. Attractive traditional beaver tailed shuffle glazing is fitted to the glasshouses. This is used to divert the water away from the drip bars. The underside of these unique drip bars, which have been in use for over 130 years, have integral grooves moulded within them to minimise condensation dripping on to the plants below.
Once the design has been approved your glasshouse is manufactured by highly skilled craftsmen who assemble the entire structure within our workshops for your inspection before despatch.
