The new VOEN joining clip: Easy initial assembly, quick opening for hibernation and the highest level of safety for your covering system. The new VOEN joining clip is the further logical development of the previous joining clip, especially the requirements of simple handling and safe assembly were perfectly realized.
For the first assembly simply press the new joining clip into the reinforced hem at the bottom of the net with the use of the specially developed bind rail. The slide mechanism for opening and closing the joining clip is a convincing solution, that has proved itself in practical experience.
Intelligent detailed solutions such as the “VOEN” writing on the back sides of the joining clip which assures the correct assembly of the clip, if read properly, makes work even more efficient.
In addition, regarding the hibernation of the covers, this joining clip sets a new benchmark relating to speed and comfort, because the opening and the fixing of the covers can be achieved in one single motion, while the joining clip itself is hibernated inside the covers.
Experience from praxis shows that it is possible to complete the entire hibernation in 25 to 35 hours per hectare. An additional wire in the middle of the row is not necessary, hence enabling the system to freely adapt to even severe wind conditions.
The traditional joining clip is characterized by excellent features regarding installation, safety against breakage and handling, but in essence works totally different compared to the new joining clip.
This clip is fastened to the reinforced hem of both nets and secured with a key. Again, this clip does not require an additional wire at the point of connection of the two covers, therefore enabling more comfortable working conditions. The clip is, depending on “bird risk”, fastened at a distance of 1 to 1.5m, guaranteeing a relatively closed system, but still able to drain precipitation, e.g. hail.
Do you choose to remove the covers during the winter from the orchard completely then you are required to use this clip, as the use of the wrap machine including the new joining clip is not possible as it can lead to the damage of the covers if the clips are left in place.
For the covering system to function properly the mesh covers must be firmly fixed on the cross cables in the orchard.
The VOEN top clip combines easy handling with extreme grip strength and safety. The covers are assembled by overlapping by 10cm across the cross cable and fastened with the inner part of the top clip.
During the second step the outer part is pushed sideways over the inner part. The clip is safely closed when the outer part has been pushed completely over the barbed hook of the inner part. Due to the conical shape of both elements a much higher gripping force is obtained, one further aspect for more safety of your covering system.
Furthermore the top clip has two barbed hooks on either side for fastening the elastic used for the black protective plastic cover during hibernation.
