Strong - Triple gusseted cross-braces span every interior bow and stretch 22' across the 30' structure. While creating a strong house for our northern climates, these braces also integrate with our overhead irrigation and plant trellising system, creating a quick and easy way to train tomatoes, cucumbers and other vining crops.
Rugged - Our galvanized tubing and strong woven poly end-wall and rollup panels are built to last.
Walkable side-wall height - The 6' side-wall height provides complete perimeter walk area and easy access to the complete growing footprint.
Accessible - End-wall design incorporates a hinged door for daily and entry and two large equipment access panels that give you cost effective and easily-winterized doorways.
Low-voltage automated systems - 12-volt louver motors and inflation fans are standard equipment on our hoops. These components use only pennies per year and don't require an electrician to install.
Many other features, including double-layer poly and roll-up sides with baffled ends as protection from wind.
