  1. Lumisol Diffused Polythene

    Lumisol Diffused

    Price From: £50.72 (Exc. VAT) £60.86 (Inc. VAT)

    The overall light reaching your crop is reduced by around 2%. This reduction in light creates a slightly cooler environment, up to 4°C lower at midday in mid-summer, which can be a considerable benefit to many crops especially in the sunnier parts of the UK. Lumisol Diffused is a UV ’open’ polythene film, allowing UV light to reach your plants.

    Light-diffusing polythene films scatter the daylight as it passes through the polythene. This enables the light to penetrate deeper into the plants' canopy, as it hits the plant from all angles not just from the direction of the sun. This reduces the upper foliage from shading the lower parts of the plant

  2. Lumisol Clear

    Lumisol Clear

    Price From: £47.87 (Exc. VAT) £57.45 (Inc. VAT)

    Lumisol Clear is a UV ’open’ polythene film, allowing UV light to reach your plants. This can have many benefits for both edible and ornamental crops, such as enhancing the fragrance, taste, colour, earlier harvesting and longer post-harvest shelf life. In addition, UV open films promote plant anti-oxidants which are good for plant health and encourage stronger plants.

    Due to its clarity, clear polythene allows around 2% more light to enter your polytunnel than with a diffused polythene cover. This extra light brings extra heat which can be a benefit during the early and late months of the growing season. Especially popular in northern and western regions where lower light levels naturally occur

  3. Super Lux 50:50 Polythene

    Super Lux 50:50 Polythene

    Price From: £39.45 (Exc. VAT) £47.34 (Inc. VAT)

    Contains an anti-condensation additive to control condensation on the underside of the film. This reduces dripping (therefore reducing the spread of fungal diseases) and prevents unnecessary loss of light caused by condensation. Comes with a 5-year guarantee, although a 10-12 year lifespan is not uncommon.

    Super Lux 50:50 gives half the level of light diffusion as a fully diffused polythene film, making it an all-round polytunnel cover, especially for those who require a balance between light-diffusing and clear polythene. Considered by many as the ideal polytunnel cover for UK wide use.

  4. White UVI Polythene

    White UVI Polythene

    Price From: £57.09 (Exc. VAT) £68.51 (Inc. VAT)

    A thermic film developed to help keep the growing environment warmer by reducing the heat lost through long wavelength infra-red radiation. Higher overnight temperatures encourage plant growth, can reduce plant losses and allow savings to be made on heating. Ideal for: Crops that require shade and cooler daytime temperatures such as nursery stock, ferns and conifers.

  5. Green/White Polythene (Blackout)

    Green/White Polythene (Blackout)

    Price From: £164.66 (Exc. VAT) £197.59 (Inc. VAT)

    Green & white polythene is especially formulated to meet the needs of the mushroom grower. The green outer layer helps this cover blend in with the environment, whilst the white layer reflects internal lighting to provide a pleasant working environment. A black core layer ensures complete opacity (black-out) and contributes to the durability of the film.

  6. Full Net Covers

    Full Net Covers

    Price From: £52.00 (Exc. VAT) £62.40 (Inc. VAT)

    Our production method spaces the seams between 2m-3m apart (depending on the size), with the seams running parallel with the hoops (width-ways). Bespoke nets can be supplied which can include hemming and eyelets. Any size can be fabricated.

    Our in-house fabrication department can produce net covers to any size. Our standard shade net covers are dark green with a 40%-45% shade value, but heavier shade values can be catered for.
