After the harvest the covers, for the protection of the material, either have to be removed from the framework for hibernation or they are to be wrapped and fixed inside the orchard. For both variations the company VOEN offers a convincing and efficient method of cover hibernation, depending of which joining clip was chosen for installation.
When using the new VOEN joining clip, the covers are required to remain in the orchard. However if the older joining clip was installed you can choose between either method.
Are the covers to remain in the orchard for hibernation then at the initial installation of the covering system in the orchard an 80cm black protective plastic cover is to be included when the self-ventilating VOEN covers are fixed onto the cable with the top clip, inclusive of elastic bands used for hibernating the covers. For hibernation the covers are loosened by pushing open the joining clip, they can then be gathered to the top and fastened with the elastic.
Next the black protective plastic cover can be wrapped around the VOEN covers and fastened to the top able. Now the covers, safely covered in black plastic, can hibernate during the Winter months in situ and are safeguarded from weather conditions for longevity.
For a quick and comfortable hibernation we developed the Cover Master, an impressive technical solution. Find more information in our service section. Efficient working conditions and the protection of the covers are only a small part of the advantages the hibernation of the covers is providing:
By using a wrap machine, more information in the service section, the covers are completely removed from the framework after harvest, wrapped and stored during the winter season.
It is very important that the covers are then stored in a clean and dry place, to ensure longevity. Also folding and bending of the covers should be avoided. In the following year the covers are re-fitted using the wrap machine and fastened with the VOEN top clips and joining clips.
Whichever version of hibernating your covers you choose, you will have our full support in regard to machinery and advice.
