The structure is a tensioned cable system supported by wooden or steel poles
and anchored by augers with a large helix screwed into the ground around the
perimeter of the structure. The structure uses poles set down the tree rows
(the poles can also be used to support a trellis system) to provide support for
a ridge wire. Pro Guard anti-hail netting is secured to the ridge wire and
attached to the next rows netting using special clips to form a valley. During
a hail storm hail will land on the netting, bounce down toward the valley and
drop harmlessly between the tree rows.
Maximum area per structure - 20ha, maximum row length - 500m.
Netting is stored on the ridge wire during the winter.
