Anti hail orchard plantations
These last years have been marked by climate changes which are of great concern to the agricultural sector, therefore the covering of the plants has become a necessity for the growers.
For this reason we suggest our customers to rely on professionals able to carefully consider every aspect and the associated risks. In the construction of a hail protection there are three key factors to keep in mind.
- The support system
- The fastening system
- The quality and characteristics of anti-hail nets.
For orchards plantation we suggest the prestressed reinforced concrete posts, which are more resistant then other materials (profiled posts or roud shaped posts). One of the things that we should not underestimate is the weight of the net after a hailstorm or a snowfall and the way in which the weight will affect certain areas.
We suggest our customers to use sturdy poles sections and reinforced pre-stressed concrete posts especially in the case of particularly long rows. For large installations we always recommend the division - when possible - of the parcels in order to be able to guarantee a good implant stability.
Another key point for the system is the fixing system. The installation of the anchors and concrete plates, and their corresponding mounting must be carried out carefully. Wires and good quality cables should be privileged in order to avoid unpleasant incidents.
When we face critical weather conditions such as hail or tornados that threaten to ruin the harvest and affecting the work of years, it becomes important to protect our plants with hail protection systems. The choice of the anti-hail net plays a key role. The material in which the net is made is high density stabilized monofil (HDPE) and ensures long duration to bad weather conditions and also to UV rays. The composition of the net follows UNIPLAST standard rules, so an high durability of the orchard plantation is guaranteed. We could provide different nets according to the area where they have to be installed: the black net is usually used in very sunny areas, the white one is installed in areas where sun exposure is reduced.
