Tunnel houses - NZ made

tunnel houseWhen you are looking for a tunnel house it is important to make sure it is well constructed and that the plastic film is held securely if you want it to last. We looked at a lot of tunnel houses before deciding on these ones and these are the reasons why:

  • Our Domestic Tunnel Houses are made of a corrosion-resistant aluminium frame spaced at 1 metre intervals to give extra cover support. Picture to the right shows a 3m tunnel house with the optional screen door.

  • Special thermal insulating tape is applied to the frame where it meets the cover to prevent the plastic being cooked at these points. These refinements add a small amount to the cost, but we think it is worth it, as it results in a longer cover life and ultimately a big saving to the owner.

  • Equally important is how it is constructed. The aluminium hoops fit into predrilled holes in the wooden base. The base is held to the ground with wooden pegs that are hammered into solid ground. The pegs are then are nailed to the base. The cover is held by a rebate and wooden lock strip nailed to the base. (Please note: While our tunnel houses are very strong this does not mean you can put your tunnel house up in an exposed situation and expect it to survive gale force winds. They are designed as a domestic tunnel house. Common sense needs to be exercised and adequate shelter provided)

  • Our tunnel houses are supplied direct to your door in boxed kitset form. The complete kitset includes a treated wooden base, wooden pegs, fastenings (nails screws etc), aluminum frame, one entry door (can be assembled to open left or right), vents as per the table below, frame tape and a machine welded Agphane Extreme plastic cover.

    All you will need are some simple tools. Hammer, Screwdriver, Tape Measure, Sharp Knife or Scissors, Heavy Hammer or Mallet, Petroleum Jelly or Grease for the top door track slides.

Warranty

The aluminium frame and wooden base is guaranteed to be free from defects and manufacturing faults for a period of one year.

The Agphane Extreme cover is guaranteed in N.Z. for 5 years against breakdown by U.V. degradation. If U.V. breakdown occurs, and is confirmed by the manufacture's sample analysis, a pro rata replacement credit will be allowed. A credit will be issued, based on original invoiced value, for the unused period of the Warranty. Warranty is to the original purchaser of the tunnel house.

The tunnel house is a domestic tunnel house and is not designed for extreme weather conditions. Permeable wind breaks are recommended in exposed situations. The guarantee on the frame and cover does not cover mechanical damage, including premature damage caused by chemical use, high winds, weather conditions or extremes of temperature.

Where breakdown has occurred on frames or pipes, warranty is conditional upon frame tape being used to protect the film from heat build up on the frame.

Replacement covers

Please make sure you have one of our frames before ordering a cover, they will not fit other brands. You can easily tell if it is one of our tunnel houses because as far as we know we are the only ones who use lagging tape on the frames and our frame hoop spacing is 1 metre. Also compare the detailed pictures on this web page. We can not refund your money if you choose the wrong cover.
