POLYTUNNELS MADE IN IRELAND FOR IRISH GARDENERS

Product Description

What is the Gardener's Choice Range?
The Gardener's Choice range is one of our most popular options. Polythene is attached to a ground TIMBER RAIL rather than been buried. Thus eliminating the need or labour to dig a  trench.  It is also quicker to build and polythene is clad more tightly to the structure.

What is included in the Gardener's Choice Kit - SUPPLY ONLY?
Steel structure c/w Hoops, Ridge and Brace bars, Front Timber Gable end c/w Hinged Timber door, Rear Timber Gable end c/w large Netting vent, Clear Thermic Anti-Drip Polythene 800G, Anti Hot Spot Tape, Timber Ground rail for sies and gable ends and one roll of FREE Clear Repair tape. Customer must build or use their own contractor to build the polytunnel.  Goods are supplied only.  Instruction manual is available.

Why buy this structure?
 • Superior Polytunnel Dimensions: Check out the ground to ridge height of our structures which gives EXTRA working height for both humans and plants... (See over for our Polytunnel Dimensions for more details).
• Quality Steelwork for a more Durable structure:  We use the high tensile Z35 steel galvanised internally and externally for all our structures. High tensile steel makes a more durable, long-lasting product which also better withstands bad weather conditionsurable. We use the larger steel - 35mm (8ft-14ft wide tunnels) - to give you a stronger, long lasting product.
Tanelith E Treated TIMBER for Outdoor Use:  We use the larger timbers 4" x 2"  (or 100mm x 44mm) in our timber gable ends, door frames and ground rails.  This heavier timber gives additional strength against windy conditions.  All timber is Tanelith-E treated specifically for outdoor use(See over for Technical Specification).  What is Tanelith-E?... More info
Anti Hot Spot Tapes Automatically included: Anti Hot Spot tape is included as standard in our kits.  This tape prolongs the life of the polythene  as it reduces the friction of steel against polythene. We include enough rolls to cover all steelwork including the brace bars so you get all over coverage. 
Wider & Higher Door sizes: Our Doors are wider and higher so wheelbarrows and other gardening equipment can pass in and out with ease.  For example - the door for the 14ft wide polytunnel is 1.2m Wide x 2.1m High (For more details_Polytunnel Dimensions). 
Heavier Timber Door: The timber door frames are made from larger timbers 4" x 2" and re-inforced at the corners.  Doors come supplied with hinges, sliding padlock, dropbar and holders for securing door.   The groundbolt allows the door to be locked at a angle giving you better control and flexibility over ventilation as well as access in or out of the tunnel.
Higher Quality Polythene: 800G Polythene is clear with the additonal  benefits of Thermic and Anti-drip properties. A manufacturer's warranty against UVI degradation is 5 years. Most people get 7-9 years from their polythene.
FREE OF CHARGE: We include one roll of Clear Repair Tape as part of the kit. This tape repairs small nicks and tears that may occur over time.

Polythene:

The standard polythene we use is a 800G Thermic Anti-Drip Polythene. This  is a clear film with the additional benefits of Thermic and Anti-drip properties.    
    'Thermic' - raises the temperature of the internal temperature by approx. 
                       1 to 2 Degrees celsius above the outside temperature. 
    'Anti-Drip' - condensation evaporates or rolls off the polythene.

Polythene Warranty :- A manufacturer's warranty against UVI degradation of the polythene is 5 years. This warranty does not cover accidental damage, malicious damage, storm damage or general wear and tear etc.

Different Types & Guages of polythene available.
Replacement polythene also available and can be cut on a per metre basis.
