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.
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.
