Thermal Anti Drip

Here at Premier Polytunnels we pride ourselves on offering the very highest quality of Thermal Anti Drip Polythene Films - the preferred cover of UK growers.

Our Thermal Anti Drip (or Anti Fog as it is sometimes known) films are THE FIRST IN THE UK that include NEW 5-layer co-extrusion technology. This 5-layer, 21st Century technology allows special chemical additives within the film to be divided more evenly throughout the layers, therefore reducing the effect of each additive upon the others and making for a more efficient polytunnel cover. These special additives help to greatly reduce many fungal and bacterial diseases that can damage plants.

The air inside a polytunnel has a high moisture content, causing water to evaporate and form droplets (or fogging) on the inside of the cover. Anti Drip additives within the film prevent large droplets forming and dropping back onto the plants, causing damage and disease to them.

The Thermal effect of the film prevents heat radiation being lost from the polytunnel, therefore maintaining a higher foliage temperature and drier plants, and leading to lower heating costs.

This film uses mineral additives to diffuse the light entering the polytunnel, ensuring that some light will make its way into the central and more shaded areas of the plants.

The film also includes Anti Dust additives on the top/outside layer, making it more difficult for dust to remain on the polythene and making it easier for the wind, rain, and your cleaning efforts to remove any accumulated dust from the polytunnel.

Choose from a 600 gauge/150 micron polythene film with a 4-year warranty against UV degradation, or a 720 gauge/180 micron polythene film (20% thicker than many other films) with a 5-year warranty.
