Hoop Spacing - Read More

    If you live in an exposed area and windy area, we'd suggest a smaller hoop spacing as the smaller the gap, the stronger the tunnel will be.

    Our steel tubes are coated with Armourguard - our unique high endurance tube which offers up to 20 times the corrosion resistance of pre-galvanised steel tube thanks to its revolutionary combined zinc, aluminium and magnesium coating.


Traditional Foundation Tubes - Read More

    These can either be concreted or knocked in to the ground, leaving 35-45cm protruding for the hoops to fix upon.


    Concreting method: The recognised method when using traditional foundation tubes is to dig a hole (35cm square x 50cm deep) and set the foundation tubes in concrete. Considered to be one of the most secure methods and recommended in high wind areas for extra stability


    Driven in to the ground: Foundation tubes are simply knocked in the ground, leaving 35-45cm protruding. The trenched in Polythene gives extra hold to the structure


Crop bars - Read More

    Although often used to hold hanging baskets or to support lateral poles on which to tie up your tomatoes, peas etc, they are more often added to a polytunnel to give it extra strength.
    Even though we boast that our polytunnels are the strongest available, they will give extra peace of mind during severe, windy storms and also when heavy snow is expected. They increase the structural strength by at least 20%. These can be retrospectively fitted to existing polytunnels.

    Lumisol Clear

    lumison clear

    Lumisol Clear is a UV ’open’ polythene film, allowing UV light to reach your plants. This can have many benefits for both edible and ornamental crops, such as enhancing the fragrance, taste, colour, earlier harvesting and longer post-harvest shelf life. In addition, UV open films promote plant anti-oxidants which are good for plant health and encourage stronger plants.

    Due to its clarity, clear polythene allows around 2% more light to enter your polytunnel than with a diffused polythene cover. This extra light brings extra heat which can be a benefit during the early and late months of the growing season. Especially popular in northern and western regions where lower light levels naturally occur.

  • Light transmission: Up to 92%
  • Thickness: 720 gauge
  • Thermic effect: Over 80%
  • Diffusion: Less than 35%

  • Lumisol Diffused

    lumison diffused



    Light-diffusing polythene films scatter the light as it passes through the polythene. This enables the light to penetrate deep into the plant canopy, as it hits the plant from all directions, not just from the direction of the sun. This ‘diffused’ light reduces the higher foliage from shading the lower parts of the plant.

    Lumisol Diffused is a UV ’open’ polythene film, allowing UV light to reach your plants. This can have many benefits for both edible and ornamental crops. Thanks to its unique anti-condensation additive, Lumisol Diffused is able to control condensation on the underside of the film.

  • Light transmission: Up to 90%
  • Thickness: 720 gauge
  • Thermic effect: Over 80%
  • Diffusion: 90%
