MUDS444's review of Elite Belmont

“Very poor bracing and weak bolts”


written by MUDS444 on 20/03/2023

I assembled the greenhouse with all supplied bolts and bracing, but was unable to bolt to the base for a few days while waiting on parts to arrive. One windy night, the bracing (poor 1.2mm thick right-angle lengths) simply folded up like foil and the whole frame collapsed in on itself which caused a lot of damage - luckily this was before I had fitted the glazing - as I realised that fitted the glass before bolting to the base would have been a bad mistake.

I contacted Elite, and they denied there was a problem with the design and said I should have bolted it down on the same day it was assembled - a challenge for anyone, I would say.

The other problem I had was with the bolts supplied - they are aluminium and several of them failed using a short 10mm spanner. Again, this point was not accepted by the manufacturer.
