Net Vents
In the rear end of the polytunnel we supply a large Net vent (usually the size of the doorway).  Generally this allows for continuous air circulation around plants even when the door is shut. The vent also keeps larger pests out e.g. pets, large insects etc. The vent generally only requires to be closed down during the darkest Winter months. The vent can be sealed up with be done with a polyflap.
Alternativly an extra door can be installed instead of a net vent, but we generally recommend only installing a second door for longer polytunnels. If you need advice, please feel free to give us a ring or email! 

Ground Rails: How is polythene attached?
Timber Cladding system (Garden Choice range): Polythene is attached to the polytunnel structure by wrapping polythene around timber laths which are then nailed onto the heavier timber ground rail and uprights in gable ends. If you are building yourself, check out our Building Instructions.

Option 1: The standard polythene we use is a 1000G 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' or 'Anti-Fog' - condensation evaporates or rolls off the polythene.

Option 2: Diffused Thermic 840G Polythene - This is a diffused film with the additional benefits of been Thermic.    
    'Thermic' - raises the temperature of the internal temperature by approx.1 to 2 Degrees celsius above the outside temperature. 
    'Diffused' - the sun's rays are 'dispersed' or 'diffused' to prevent plant scorching. The same amount of light is allowed in.

Polythene Warranty: A manufacturer's warranty against UVI degradation of the polythene is 5-6 years depending on the type of polythene picked. This warranty does not cover accidental damage, malicious damage, storm damage or general wear and tear etc.
