Specialist Tools

Access Equipment

In order to maintain a glasshouse, specialist tools and equipment are needed. Ordinary hammers, spanners, saws, drills, paint brushes and so on are not to be found where a glasshouse is under repair.


Specialist Tools


The most obvious part is the glass itself; but the sheets seldom all fit exactly the way you want them. Sometimes you have to trim them, and with a bit of practise, you can do it. All you need is a glass cutter, some cutting oil, and the glass itself.

Glass suckers make it easier for you to move sheets of glass. It can be dangerous to try to pick it up or manoeuvre it with your hands because it is difficult to grasp. Quite often you’ll have to wear gloves to protect your hands from being cut.


Pipe painting

Another part of the glasshouse that requires specialized tools is all the pipe that needs to be painted.

It may seem like an utter waste of time to do this, but if you have customers, whether they are retail or wholesale, who come into you glasshouses, then you'll know that appearance is everything. Out of sight truly is out of mind; and having unsightly pipes hidden in plain sight is preferred to having the noticeable as soon as you walk in.

This is maintenance that you can do as well; but in order for it to look good, you have to use some specialized tools. Otherwise, you will look like that mess that it is. Pipe painting gloves will make it easier to hold onto the roller handle and the little round heads at the end of the brush will ensure even coverage of the surface.

There are other specialist tools, as well as equipment, that will make it easier for you to maintain your glasshouse.



Gutter Walking Aid

A gutter walking aid helps you to walk safely on the roof of your glasshouse so that you can clean out the gutters, inspect the roof for damage, and do other things that you couldn't do any other way.
