For the correct functioning of the thermal effect of the AGRICOVER U, it is necessary to install it in the form of a tent with gabled roof over the canopy. The distance between the foliage developed and the AGRICOVER, on the sides should be a minimum of 40 cm. to 60 cm, and in the center of the tent 80 cm. to 100 cm.
This distance is essential to allow the light diffusion effect of Agricover to avoid excessive heating during the day. If the distance is smaller, the quality of Agricover diffusion can be canceled and the crop will heat up excessively.
Despite this distance, on cold winter nights, Agricover will continue to block the long wave IR, and will keep the plant and all the mass with a higher temperature than the air.
The cover Agricover manufactured with reinforced sides in which 2 or 3 rings per linear meter are inserted. In areas with strong winds, 3 rings per linear meter are installed, and in zone with weaker winds, 2 rings per linear meter are installed.
For the fixation of the cover in the structure, it is necessary to have elastic connectors that are tied in the rings and in the side wires. These connectors or tubes are fixed to the rings with a definitive knot, and in the wire, with a knot easy to undo, to be able to collect the plastic tent once the campaign is over.
In the center of the Agricover cover, there is an area of about 15 cm. with double reinforcing fabric. At the time of installation, you must match this area with the overhead wire, to serve as tissue protection
