The key features of FlexiTunnel’s innovative design are what make it unique to the market:
Flexibility is more than a buzzword:
Integrated yards and pens
The FlexiTunnel yard system divides into pens to hold between 10 and 20 calves and can be assembled and changed to suit individual pen sizes.
The lightweight design ensures once erected, a FlexiTunnel can simply be shifted to a new position within hours and avoids all the constraints of a permanent structure. It can be easily packed away for a season. The ease of relocating assures you of a high resale value, should your circumstances ever change.
FlexiTunnels are designed for quick installation and relocation without compromising the ability to withstand New Zealand's strong wind conditions. The patented design ensures that it is virtually impossible for the film to come off the tunnel frame, while the structure itself is securely embedded in the ground with the Flexitunnel screw anchor system.
All metal parts are either hot dip galvanised, zinc plated or made of stainless steel. The tunnels are covered with a minimum 200micron greenhouse film with a manufacturers guarantee of three years (pro rata) and an expected live span of 5 - 7 years plus.
FlexiTunnel offer good working space with head clearance of 1.85m, allowing for good access through the entire tunnel. Both sides of the tunnel can be partially or completely lifted to give any amount of access of ventilation as required.
The low all-inclusive price (under $100 per m2) can protect your calves for as little as $12 to $18 per calf/season (Calculated on a 10 year depreciation) and it's versatility of use, make FlexiTunnel the most cost effective live stock protection system available.
FlexiTunnels are delivered on site in kitset form ready to erect. No foundations or on-site welding or cutting is required as all the components arrive ready for assembly. Any size FlexiTunnel up to 500 m2 can easily be erected by "unskilled labour" within one or two days.
FlexiTunnel’s innovative Hoop with inverted Base Frame modules are a world-first in tunnel designs and are patented (NZ PATENT No. 329514). The commitment to innovation is what keeps FlexiTunnel the market leader.
