ANTI-HAIL NETS

Our anti-hail nets consists of a tensile structure made of concrete posts that are connected to each other by wires and cables and kept under tension by the anchorages (anchors or cement plates) installed in the ground. Above this structure, a net fully covers the rows of fruit plants. The net is fixed film by film and is slightly larger than the rows, until achieving an inclined position aimed to confer the right amount of elasticity to bear stress from hail. Furthermore, between one film and the other, small openings allow hail stones to flow out.

The main feature of this type of system lies in the fact that the net does not fully lean on the structure, but rather on a ridge wire in order to prevent it from moving sideways under the weight of hail, and thus from exposing the orchard, while the transversal wire (essential for the stability of the structure) runs above it; this technique allows the net to lower itself when stressed by the weight of hail.
