This type of net are designed to cover crops where hail is a problem, but which require plenty of sunlight.
The mesh square stretched to specified width which gives about 20% shade but, please note, will still allow penetration of fine hailstones. If this presents a problem, 30% shadecloth should be used in preference.
Lifespan of Shade Cloth
Nets handled and erected to our specifications can be expected to last at least 5 years and up to 10 years depending on the severity of climatic conditions in any particular region.
Hailguard nets are mainly used to cover crops such as tomatoes, green peppers, kiwi fruit, table grapes, strawberries and so on, but special structures can be designed to suit any type of crop. Whilst pitched-roof and multispan structures are ideal for hail protection, another type of structure detailed later may better suit your specific needs.
