Our verdict on the Outsunny 6x6ft Walk-In Polycarbonate Greenhouse Plant Grow Galvanized Aluminium

The Outsunny 6x6ft Walk-In Polycarbonate Greenhouse Plant Grow Galvanized Aluminium fit with sliding doors.

Base material: aluminium [1]

Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this greenhouse fairs across the market.

Cladding

The aluminium cladding(walls) used here is an about average form of construction for greenhouse walls out of the 2 types [2] we’ve identified on same-size greenhouses, that you’ll also see getting used on 23% (180 of 787) of all greenhouses analysed [3], as well as being used on 6% (5 of 78) of the top 10% of greenhouses [4]. You’ll also find the aluminium cladding showing up on 41% of 6′ x 6′ greenhouses (29 in total) [5], and when taking the average Expert Score of those 6′ x 6′ greenhouses (77), the Outsunny 6x6ft Walk-In Polycarbonate Greenhouse Plant Grow Galvanized Aluminium is the same with an Expert Score of 77.

We found 24 6′ x 6′ greenhouses with comparable specifications. The Outsunny 6x6ft Walk-In Polycarbonate Greenhouse Plant Grow Galvanized Aluminium has an Expert Score that is 2% higher than average and is £13 less expensive than average. If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring greenhouses out of the 24 with comparable specifications the following might be of interest.

Best value – If you are looking for something comparable that costs less, then you could save £183 with this vidaXL Greenhouse Anthracite Aluminium 3.61 m² Anthracite. It is priced at £242, this is 76% less than this and has an Expert Score of 72, 5 points less than the Outsunny 6x6ft Walk-In Polycarbonate Greenhouse Plant Grow Galvanized Aluminium.

Highest Expert Score – With an Expert Score of 80 vs 77 for this product, the Halls 6×6 Aluminium Frame Polycarbonate Greenhouse is the best 6′ x 6′ greenhouse with comparable specifications, and is priced at £765, that’s £340 more than the Outsunny 6x6ft Walk-In Polycarbonate Greenhouse Plant Grow Galvanized Aluminium.

High Wind Area – If you live in a particularly exposed or high wind area then having a greenhouse with a thicker cladding and higher than average frame thickness can be preferable. We found at least 2 greenhouses that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Marlborough Greenhouses 6′ x 6′ Wooden Greenhouse with 4 windows

Coastal Consideration – If you live in a particularly wet or harsher environment such as by the coast then you might want to consider something with a more robust pressure treatment or something made from metal or plastic, both materials that are particularly suited to such harsh environments. We’ve found at least 3 greenhouses that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 greenhouses that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

More Child Friendly – If you have children and you are looking for something that has that little extra in terms of durability then tougher glazing options might be a better option. Here we have at least 3 other options that will fill those needs.

1. Aluminium: Is a very stable metal that has very low corrosion rates in neutral environments (such as domestic garden buildings). The good corrosion resistance of aluminium alloys means that they are perfectly suited for outdoor and industrial environments. This resistance is caused because aluminium is a very reactive metal with a high affinity for oxygen, The reactive character of the aluminium with oxygen means an aluminium oxide film forms on the metal surface that gives it a protective character.

The most common type of aluminium alloys used for architectural structures (such as garden buildings) is the 6XXX Aluminium-magnesium-silicon.

The Aluminium Federation in the article UK Aluminium Industry Fact Sheet 2, Aluminium and Corrosion say “The 6XXX series alloys are the most common amongst aluminium alloys and are widely used in transport, engineering and architecture.” They then go on to say “Most aluminium casting alloys are classified as having good corrosion resistance, and if used for purposes involving exposure out-of-doors, they will suffer no appreciable loss of strength as a result of corrosion. Weathering tests lasting more than ten years, carried out by The Association of Light Alloy Refiners, confirm that there is little difference in the resistance to atmospheric attack of the casting alloys…”
