I am putting up hoop houses in a high wind area. Rope and strapping are used in addition to wiggle wire. Any particular kind of rope and where do I find the strapping material?
We use paracord on our greenhouses. We purchase directly from here: http://www.parachute-cord.com/1000cord.htm
If you also need strapping we don't have a great source for this currently. It is something we may start producing ourselves in the next 2-3 months. Best source I could find is here: https://goo.gl/Rzm8CJ most importantly you want to make sure the strapping is UV treated so it doesn't degrade your greenhouse plastic.
Could you please tell me how much track and wiggle wire do I need for a 12x40 green house? thx u
If just need it on the baseboard and end hoops you need 30 pieces of spring wire and lock channel. If you have both a hipboard and baseboard you will need 44 pieces of wire and channel.
Will this work to secure a 15 mil used billboard tarp,or is that too thick?
Yes it should. Many of our customers use multiple layers of our 6 mil plastic along with shade cloth without any issues.
When it says 100 pack , does it mean 100 of each piece , or 50 channels , and 50 wires ?
It means 100 pieces of lock channel and 100 pieces of the spring wire
DO YOU DELIVERY TO CANADA
Due to operational and logistical issues we are not shipping internationally at this time. We have had numerous problems with shipping companies and customs in regards to delivery time and fees, making it quite the headache for our customers (and ourselves).
I have put wiggle wire and channel all over my covered deck's supporting 4x4's which I plan on painting white while being able to switch out insect screening and PVC plastic sheeting as the seasons change. Do you know of any projects where wiggle wire and the channel have been painted say white, of course not yet installed, and what paint was used and what was the lifespan of the pain cover. Thanks Jim W.
We don't know of people painting the channel. However since it is aluminum all you would need to do is scuff the channel a little and use a good metal paint. If you use a good quality paint that is compatible with metal applications it should last pretty long.
