Product Description

What is the Garden Pride Range?
The Garden Pride range is the most superior domestic polytunnel on the market.  Timber is replaced with non-degradable ALUMINIUM. Block Aluminium is used in the gable ends and ground rails. Timber will naturally degrade over time whereas aluminium rails can be re-used (if undamaged) whenever you need to replace your polythene cover.  The Aluminium rails and infills secure your cover to the polytunnel eliminating the need to dig a trench and displaying a more tidy and attactive polytunnel.

What is included in the Garden Pride Kit - SUPPLY & INSTALL ONLY?
Steel structure c/w Hoops, Ridge and Brace bars, Front Alum Gable end c/w Alum Sliding door, Rear Alum 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 availability), Anti Hot Spot Tape, Aluminium Ground rail for sides and gable ends and one roll of FREE Clear Repair tape. 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?
Easy to upgrade to Aluminium: At any stage you can change from burying polythene or timber ground rails to our Aluminium option. All of our domestic tunnel range have standard polytunnel dimensions.  We can supply and install Aluminium rails etc  when you change your polythene.  (See Polytunnel Dimensions for more details).

CROP SUPPORTS:  Crop supports for EVERY INTERNAL HOOP.   We also include steel down braces to give you extra strength and support for suspending overhead irrigation pipes or shelving etc.

• Re-usable Aluminium fixing System:  Whereas timber fixing systems will eventually degrade, there will be no need to replace the alum fixing system (unless damaged) when it comes to replace your polythene. Generally the only cost will be the cost of replacing the polythene sheet when it  needs to replaced.

• Lower Maintenance costs:  Separate sheets of polythene is used to clad the structures - from the front hoop to the rear hoop is one sheet.  The polythene is panelled in on the front and rear gable ends.  So if there was an un-repairable  damage, only a small section of polythene would need to be replaced. ... costing less.  Since all of the aluminium is generally re-usable, there is no additional fittings, timber required only the cost of replacing the Polythene.

• 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.

• Self-Locking Alum Sliding Door: Our Doors are wider and higher so wheelbarrows and other gardening equipment can pass in and out with ease.  The Sliding door has a self-locking mechanism, all you have to do is slide, lift and lock.

FREE Roll of Repair Tape: 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.

The standard polythene we use is a 800G/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' - 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.
Replacement polythene available, can be cut on a per m basis.
