TIPS ON HOW TO MEASURE POLYTHENE


TO CALCULATE THE SHEET WIDTH:

Depending on what method you are using to attach the polythene to the polytunnel. 
Pick one of the options below on how to measure the sheet width.                                                                                              
 
 
Option 1: If burying the polythene in the ground or Trenching into the ground:
Measure from point A to A i.e. ground to ground over the hoop, plus approx. 2m extra (to line trenches).
                                                                                                 
OR
 
Option 2:  Attaching to Timber Base or Ground Rail:
Measure from A to A i.e. ground to ground over the hoop, plus 1m extra to fit.

 
OR
 
Option 3: Attaching to Side Rail:
Measure from point B to B ie, from where the side rail is to be located to the other side rail on the opposite side of the hoop, plus 1m extra fit.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 

TO CALCULATE THE SHEET LENGTH:


Length of Polythene required = (Length of Structure) + (Height from ridge to ground x 2) + (2 metres)
