Crop cover Overview

The Crop cover design is one of Redpaths most popular arch / tunnelhouse buildings.

This structure is both cost-effective and speedy to build, yet is also a very durable even in the windiest of sites.

The Crop cover model is popular for off-season crops, nursery crops, and any crop that requires simple rain cover and shoulder of season protection. 

The Crop cover can be supplied with either energy efficient twinskin cladding or Super heavy duty 254 micron singleskin ten year + cladding. Crop support can be included in the design with ventilation being provided by either manually operated or automatic roll up sidewall or end wall blinds. Forced airflow fan systems with Rack and pinion side vents is also an option. Insect screens may be fitted to all ventilator openings for pest exclusion if required.

You can fit Redpath overhead shade or thermal screens to this greenhouse design. Call us for a quote or click link here
