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 & INSTALL 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, Polyflap, Crop Supports on every internal hoop (excl. 8ft wides structures), Clear Thermic Anti-Drip Polythene 1000G (subject to availibility), Anti Hot Spot Tape, Timber Ground rail for sides and gable ends and one roll of FREE Clear Repair tape. NOTE: Also includes our **Buiilding service, Pre-mix Cement  and  Delivery to site.
**Building service: If you avail of our Supply and install option - our professional team of builders will generally install the polytunnel within one or two days (depending on polytunnel type, size, weather conditions etc.).  Our Building service price includes premixed concrete for f/tubes and gable end posts, installing structure, fitting ground rails, affixing doors and cladding structure with polythene on site.  Terms and conditions apply.

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).
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 Technical Specification for more details).

Anti Hot Spot Tapes Automatically included: Anti Hot Spot tape is included as standard in our kits and we include tape for each hoop.
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 certain angle giving you better control and flexibility over ventilation as well as easy access in or out of the tunnel. All timber is Tanelith-E treated for outdoor use.
High Quality Polythene: 1000G Polythene is clear with the additonal  benefits of Thermic and Anti-drip properties. A manufacturer's warranty against UVI degradation is 5 years based under Mediterranean conditions.
FREE KIT EXTRAS: We include one roll of Clear Repair Tape and Polyflap for the rear net vent as part of the kit.

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.

Other types and guages of polythene available.
