Gripple

VINEYARD TRELLISING: GRIPPLE

In today’s vineyards, the wires, posts and machinery used are constantly being improved, and Gripple prides itself on being part of that evolution. The Gripple Plus product range, along with the Torq Tensioning Tool and Contractor Tool not only provide a trellising system that can be tensioned in seconds, but one that will last for decades.

The Gripple Plus Range provides a strong, fast and economical way to install and maintain a solid trellis structure. The range includes the GP Small, GP Medium and GP Large, which are designed to accommodate the wire diameters/gauges most commonly used in vineyard applications.  The Torq Tensioning Tool and Contractor Tool are specifically designed to apply tension to your wires through a Gripple product. In addition to the core range of Gripple Plus products, we also provide bracing kits and Badger Earth Anchors. By using our fast, efficient and re-tensionable products, installation labor is minimized and annual maintenance is negligible.

DRIP IRRIGATION: IRRITEC 

In every situation – open field, orchard, vineyard or greenhouse – Irritec has designed the best irrigation system to meet your needs.

  • Nurseries of fruit trees, rooted vines and plants for green areas. Generally suitable for use in specialized horticulture (strawberries, potatoes, tomatoes, melons, aubergines, asparagus, seed cultivation, small fruits etc) thanks to its ease of use.
  • With equal spacing, the system gives good evenness of distribution at a moderate installation cost, essentially because the primary lines are made in lay flat hose, and all the fittings in plastic material.
  • Seamless construction is stronger and more durable.
  • P1 is manufactured using the highest quality engineering grade polyethylene resins available in the market today, producing a high strength and abrasion resistant product.
  • P1 is made with injection molded drippers. Molded drippers offer a high degree of plug resistance, lower coefficient of variation, resulting in highly uniform water distribution.
  • Outlet Flap is Standard. Outlet flap protects the emission device. Opens under pressure allowing flow and closes on shut down to reduce root intrusion and soil ingestion. With the flap you can feel confident installing P1 in above or below ground applications.
  • Integrated inlet filters add additional protection against clogging.
