MINI “ECO” TUNNELS
Tata Ma’s tunnels are mini “eco” tunnels which are ecological, economical and eco- friendly, due to our extensive recycling program of polyester scrim reinforced light diffusive PVC that is used to cover our metal tunnel structures.
Unlike most tunnel plastics that have no internal reinforcing embedded inside the plastic, ours does. This giving them high mechanical (tear resistant) strength, while still remaining flexible to tension over the durable tunnel structure.
Tata Ma’s “eco” tunnels although originally designed for the aquaculture/ hydroponics market they are also well suited as green houses for small urban gardens, nursery’s and commercial farming operations.
These easy to assemble DIY tunnel kits are made from painted 5.6mm steel lattice/ welded mesh. They are fitted with a metal door and frame work at either end of the tunnel. There is no wood in our tunnel structures, which is susceptible to rotting and attracting unwanted insects.
The tunnels are covered with 400 micron reinforced PVC, that offers an excellent balance between strength, diffusive and correct light transmission.
The tunnels come standard in 3.5m widths x 2.25m high, with lengths from 2.2m long up to 24m or longer if desired.
Popular sizes available:
2.2m long x 3.5m wide x 2.25 high
4.5m long x 3.5m wide x 2.25 high
6.8m long x 3.5m wide x 2.25 high
9m long x 3.5m wide x 2.25m high
Other lengths can be made up in increments of 2.3m up to any length required.
