Pioneer tunnel

Our flagship tunnel. Growers can start with a basic Pioneer tunnel designed only for rain protection and later retrofit doors, rain gutters, side skirts and mechanized roof vents.

WHY THE PIONEER TUNNEL?

  • Legs are designed with options for 1.25m, 1.75m
    or 2.m to gutter height.
  • All tunnels specification are tailored to each grower’s
    unique environment and climate.
  • Multispan with bay widths 7.5m to 10.0m.
  • Built to any length.
  • Can be covered in Polythene or Shade Net.

HIGH AIR VOLUME

Increasing the air volume helps to stabilise the internal environment of the tunnel and reduces humidity, giving the potential for higher yields and consistently better quality fruit throughout the season.

HAYGROVE HSO HOOPS

We make use of high tensile galvanized steel to add that extra strength to your tunnel where needed.

  • Haygrove special oval hoops bend like traditional circular steel but
    have increased lateral strength due to its flat sides.
  • The Haygrove profile steel provides a stronger and lighter
    hoop and therefore more cost effective solution.

HAYGROVES SCALABLE RETROFIT OPTIONS

RAINWATER GUTTERS

  • Enable growers to seal their tunnel from rain completely.
  • Use of the leg row as a planting row means more efficient
    spraying and tunnels access.
  • Captured run-off water provides access to additional high
    quality water in dryer areas.
  • Creating a perfect seal means additional control of temperature
    and humidity.

SIDE SKIRTS

Multiple material options for side skirts which can be
used as basic protection from elements or fully sealed
insect protection.
