Insulation Fixing Aids

Greenhouse insulation is easy to fit in most aluminium and wooden greenhouses, as well as polythene tunnels as long as you are using the correct greenhouse fixing aids for your style of greenhouse.

In aluminum greenhouses you can usually use retaining clips to attach your insulation, we recommend our Alliplugs which fit into the bolt channels and glazing channels of the greenhouse to make installing the insulation quick and easy. Retaining clips can be used time and time again without compromising their strength, making them a great investment for your insulation project.
NB.To make your insulation secure you will need around 10 clips per 12ft of insulation, remember to cut and fasten the insulation around windows, vents and louvres so that they can still be opened to allow a fresh air flow when necessary. You can use our all weather tape to securely hold the insulation in place.

For wooden greenhouses you can install your insulation with standard drawing or notice board pins.

For Polythene Tunnels the best way to hold insulation such as bubble insulation in place is to use all weather tape or double sided tape to hold it to the inside of the frame. Polytunnels can cover a large area which may make it difficult to install an effective insulation solution, it's a good idea to bring any plants that will need insulating and heating into a smaller space where it is easier to regulate the temperature. You can even use bubble insulation to create separating walls within the poly tunnel to create smaller spaces which have better insulation.

This waterproof tape is most commonly used as a glazing repair tape, allowing you to make quick and easy repairs to cracked glass and torn polythenes in greenhouses and polytunnels.

Anti-Hot Spot Tape
Anti-Hot Spot Tape is long lasting, self-adhesive foam tape which is applied to tunnel hoops before covering. It provides an insulating layer between the steel and polythene preventing hot spots, which cause the cover to stretch and weaken.
