CLASSIC anti-rain system is a tensile structure of prestressed concrete piles, connected to each other through steel cables and wires that are kept taut by anchorage specifically set into the ground.
This particular structure assures plant best resistance to bad weather condition, also to strongest one.
Compared to anti-hail system, CLASSIC anti-rain structure is reinforced placing intermediate piles closer and anchoring them to the ground, as perimeter ones.
Hoods for anti-rain covering is specifically designed with a galvanized steel strip, that allows its firm connection to the pile.
Protection consist in an anti-rain film, and eventually anti-hail net, which are opened simultaneously to protect the orchard against bad weather conditions. Anti-rain film is a woven, plastic-coated and waterproof cloth continuously fixed through an elastic cable to guarantee wind force release and to prevent sheet tearing. Eventually installed anti-hail net is always slightly wider than rows distance, so to obtain a sloped position with elasticity necessary to withstand hail weight stress. Furthermore, between net-sheets connection point, openings should form, enabling hail stones to roll down.
To guarantee plant efficiency and stability, space between net and the ground must never exceed row distance (H≤L).
