Designed for effectively and efficiently growing organic produce, the tunnel consists of high quality, locally sourced raw materials. The frame is constructed using Class 12 Unplasticized PolyVinyl Chloride (UPVC) tubes in order to achieve a hard, rigid exoskeleton. This UPVC has Ultra Violet (UV) light stabilisers imbedded within.
The UPVC frame is then covered in high strength, 40% black&white veggie netting around the perimeter. This veggie netting allows for the through flow of air, hence creating a well-ventilated environment in which to grow.
The roof of the tunnel is covered in non-permeable, 185 micron UV diffuse rip-stop plastic. This rip-stop design consists of a unique modular criss-cross pattern that will not allow for holes or tears to propagate. This UV diffuse also allows for a more consistent spectrum of light distribution within the tunnel.
The tunnel has a height of 2.1m and a width of 2.8m. Available in 3m/4.5m/6m lengths.
High strength 40% black/white veggie netting front, back and side panels with a non-permeable 185 Micron UV diffuse rip-stop plastic roof.
This design allows for natural airflow through the tunnel whilst still maintaining full covered protection from above.
The All Weather tunnel cover addition affords the grower a better grasp on climate control within the Grow Tunnel.
This guard effectively allows the tunnel to be sealed with plastic to cover entirely.
Among the many benefits this gives is the ability to keep out cold temperatures.

Even Light Distribution
The custom grow light kit is individually suited to each Grow Tunnel size. The light kit consists of a day/night sensor as well as the nessecary mountings and a 3 pin plug. The lights used are 45w 5 foot long IP65 LEDs. They produce 4050 lumens of 6000k cool white light ideal for vegetative growth stages and supplemental lighting in the flowering stages.
