The Grape Protect is a net protecting against adverse climate conditions, intended solely for use with vines. Product made in 100% from polyethylene. The wide reinforcing band makes the net more durable. The band also ensures that the netting is correctly attached to the vine and provides greater resistance to tears and winds.
The netting is of excellent quality:
Its unit weight of 80 g/m² is higher than in any other currently available netting system.
It is fitted with 3.8 cm wide reinforcement bands.
Its life expectancy is approximately 10 years. This means a relatively low cost of investment, as it is spread over the entire period of use of the net.
Grape Protect netting is available in different sizes: 0.5 m; 0.6 m; 0.8 m; 1 m or 1.2 m wide and 750 m long.
The netting is also available in different colours (green, crystal, grey). The colours come in different shades, which can be adjusted to the time of harvest.
Also, Grape Protect netting is recyclable: it is made entirely from polyethylene, and so it does not require waste sorting.
How to use the Grape Protect ?
The Grape Protect protective netting is very easy to use and fold, mainly thanks to its innovative hooking and stretching technology. You will only need three wires, in contrast to a plot without netting, which requires 5 to 6 wires.
