Replacement Polythene

We stock a full range of replacement polythene which we can cut from large rolls in our warehouse to whatever length you require, from widths of 7.3m, 9.2m and 14m wide.

State of the art polythene

Our polythene cannot be bettered, here’s why:

NON-DRIP

Droplets falling down on top of your seedlings as they germinate can destroy them

ANTI-FOG

If your tunnel fogs over it reduces the amount of light getting in – more light = better growth.

UV PROTECTED

Your plants wont get scorched on sunny days – no scorching = better growth. Aphids also see in UV light, remove it and they can’t fly, they may enter a tunnel but cannot colonise as with standard polythene

DIFFUSED

Light is dispersed passing through our polythene almost eliminating shadows-big plants wont overshadow small ones – no shadows = better growth

SUPER THERMIC

This is like built in insulation, close your doors early evening when the temperatures are up and your tunnel will retain the heat – warmer soil=better growth. Save up to 25% of your heating costs and get up to 7 deg C frost protection without heat.

I reclad my polytunnel using polythene which Gillespie Polytunnels supplied me. The difference in the heat with new polythene was unbelievable, it was very easy fitted using Deans advice and I can see a much better growth rate in my crops.

How to measure your tunnel for replacement polythene

Measure the length of your tunnel, the height at the centre and the length of the arc/hoop, i.e. measure from the ground up over the top of the hoop and back down to the ground again.
