Nurseries & Flower Growers Information Page
Polynet Products Limited offer a range of innovative (and often exclusive) netting products to Nurseries & Flower Growers.
Nurseries use MIKROCLIMA as a throw over protective cover or fixed over frames or cloche hoops (fibreglass rods) to give protection from cold winds, heavy rain, hail and frosts. Plants nurtured in a protected or heated environment may be placed under Mikroclima or Tunnet to ‘harden up’ in a semi protected environment before sale.
Flower Growers use MIKROCLIMA for protection from cold and frost, either over structures or hoops or as a thermal blanket installed inside a glass or plastic house to defuse light, slow down heat loss and reduce condensation or to cover seed raising beds to retain heat and moisture.
Because Mikroclima is permeable to air and water, and because Mikroclima retains its strength when wet, it is ideal for use as a cloche cover.
Polynet supplies a range of FIBREGLASS RODS designed for this purpose.
TUNNET is a cover very similar to Mikroclima, but it is heavier and stronger, more suitable for covering larger semi-permanent structures.
Available in rolls: 2m x 100m, 4m x 100m, 6m x 100m and 8m x 50m and in cut lengths 2m, 4m, 6m or 8m wide.
The MAXI-CLOCHE is a new support system using Tunnet cover and fibreglass rods to protect a larger area with raised crop protection.
