Shelterguard Shrub Shelters – tubes
Plastic mesh shrub shelters protect newly planted shrubs from damage from rabbits, manufactured from recycled plastics
Manufactured with recycled plastic
SHELTERGUARD shrub shelters are manufactured from a recycled plastic mesh; Recycled HDPE & LDPE Photodegradable. The recycled polypropilene content of the shrub shelter is up to 85%.
Sheltered micro-climatic environment
The shrub shelters have a 12mm mesh aperture and a clear polyethylene film lining for a sheltered micro-climatic environment. The film laminate gives the SHELTERGUARD shrub guard added shelter from wind and herbicide spray, allows light to penetrate and acts like a greenhouse encouraging good strong early shrub growth. SHELTERGUARD shrub shelters also have a smooth top edge (selve edge) to prevent any abrasion to the tree stem. The tubes have a staggered weld line to improve drainage and prevent the tubes from filling up with water.
Protection against browsing animals
SHELTERGUARD shrub shelters protect shrubs and bushy plants from browsing animals (rabbits, hare, muntjac etc). SHELTERGUARD shrubshelters have been specifically designed to photo-degrade in a two stage process, with the polyethylene film lining breaking up first (after approximately three growing seasons), leaving a free draining netting tree guard to continue to provide support and browsing protection.
Smooth & reinforced top to prevent stem abrasion and strengthen the shelter
Pre-fitted with two releasable nylon ties round a reinforced strip for faster installation
Line of weakness along weld line and at base to assist shrub in breaking free from guard
Unique combination of mesh and film provides browsing protection, a beneficial microclimate and enables use of herbicide sprays
Manufactured from recycled plastics and can be recycled at end of life by Agri.cycle
