  • Diameters: nominal 65mm expanding to 80mm
  • Nested in 2
  • Minimum order: 972 units


  • UV stabilised to provide a minimum estimated life of 3 years (can vary beyond this depending on site conditions).
  • Durable twin-wall construction for the best possible strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Quick and easy to both install and remove.

  • Ideally suited to fruit and olive tree applications.
  • Provides accelerated growth, improved survival rates and reliable browsing and herbicide protection.
