HIGH WIND RESISTANCE
Coverings Stay Tight
Wind resistance is directly related to the tightness of the covering.
Other low tunnels require regular stretching of covering from the ends which is difficult and inconvenient.
The unique feature of the LowCats Shock Cord means that the covering stays tight without intervention.
This results in a better look, easier setup, and much improved wind resistance.
