MONT 8×16 Greenhouse- Special Edition

Discover the exclusive MONT Greenhouse – Special Edition, available solely through Greenhouse Emporium. We’ve bundled our most sought-after accessories into this special edition, tailored for our best-selling greenhouse size. It’s the ideal choice for gardeners aiming to maximize both their yields and usable space.

Just a heads-up: MONT used to go by the name Monticello. That’s right – the name got spruced up, but the greenhouses are still the same (or improved) garden havens you know and cherish. If Monticello Greenhouse rings a bell, you’re in the right place; welcome to the new era of MONT!

Proudly manufactured by Riverstone Industries in the USA, this MONT Greenhouse features an impressive interior height of 7.5′ at its apex. This not only facilitates effective heat dispersion but also accommodates taller gardeners comfortably, allowing them to work upright without hindrance.

Key features such as automatic roof vent openers, dual hinged double doors (6′ x 4.4′), and an integrated rainwater gutter system are designed to enhance your growing experience, ensuring you enjoy your MONT greenhouse for many years ahead.

Why choose the MONT Special Edition?

  • Unmatched Durability: Backed by the industry’s strongest 10-year warranty, covering both the frame and the polycarbonate sidewalls and roof, ensuring your investment is protected.
  • American-Made Quality: Every MONT Greenhouse is 100% manufactured in the USA by Riverstone Industries, utilizing premium US-grade aluminum, which is significantly heavier by 70 lbs on average than those found in imported greenhouses.
  • Superior Construction: Opting for the MONT means you’re getting a structure built with the highest quality extruded aluminum, offering greater resistance against snow and wind compared to the thinner, more brittle aluminum used in foreign-made models.
  • Energy Efficient: The choice of 8mm twin-wall Polycarbonate, identical to what is used in commercial greenhouses, ensures better insulation, keeping your greenhouse cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

Is the frame anodized?

Yes & No. The aluminum frame is anodized. However, the black frame is electrostatically painted.

Is the black paint powdercoated?

No, the black paint is electrostatically applied which is stronger than powder coating. It is very difficult to scratch and should not fade dramatically. Riverstone Industries guarantees it for 10 years.

Is the aluminum frame cooler than the black frame?

Yes, the aluminum frame is on average about 7 degrees cooler than the black.

Can the MONT be attached to a concrete pad? If so what are the dimensions needed for the concrete pad?

Yes, you can use a concrete pad. Riverstone Industries recommends that you add 3 – 4 inchs to the pad on all sides. For Example: The 8ft x 8ft (exact size of 8.1ft x 8.1ft) would need a concrete pad of 8.4ft x 8.4ft. Note: Riverstone Industries does not provide concrete screws, you will need to buy these from your local hardware store.

What tools do I need for the assembly or is everything included?

Not everything is included. Here is a list of tools you will need and items included:

  • Work gloves
  • Safety goggles
  • Spirit level
  • Tape measure
  • Step ladder
  • Clear silicone caulk tube
  • 23 1/8 inch spacer (included)
  • 7/16 wrench (included)
  • Philips screwdriver (included)
  • Flat screwdriver (included)
  • 5-foot bungee cord (included)

Can I extend the MONT Greenhouse later?

Yes, it is expandable in 4ft increments.

We live in a seismically active area south of San Francisco. I’d like to install the greenhouse on a hill. Is this the best greenhouse for my conditions?

MONTs are very sturdy greenhouses. However, the greenhouses are not tested for earthquakes. What we can suggest for you to do is to check the bolts and make sure everything is tightened after an earthquake or from time to time. The panels won’t pop out unless the frame is loose. The channels are made to fit the Polycarbonate snugly.

What does the ventilation fan do versus the auto openers in the roof?

Automatic vent openers are self-contained units which require no electricity. It is a temperature-sensitive device that automatically opens and closes a roof vent. So, they release heat and they basically require wind to make the air flow through the greenhouse. The powered ventilation fan gives you more control. It removes excess heat by creating air movement throughout the greenhouse. However, it’s just a fan, not an AC unit. So, on very hot days, you’ll still experience higher temperatures inside your greenhouse.

Do the doors swing out or slide to the side? What is the door width?

It’s a hinged door so it swings. The door opening is 4ft x 6ft.

Where does it ship from?

Georgia, USA
