Norm wants to caution anyone modifying their tunnel (or any structure) as this compromises the entire concept of the structure as well as voids the warranty and can start a whole host of other issues. Please call and speak directly with Norm, as well as read ALL the material on our website and installation manual before embarking on what can be economical and easy to use season extenders, or, very costly mistakes. Thank you for your interest

Ultimate in Low Cost, Portable Season Extending Greenhouses
A note of caution…
At 6’ rib spacing, these structures are not intended to, or capable of handling very much snow load. This tunnel can handle greater loads by simply reducing the rib spacing and/or increasing the length of the anchor pegs.

It is important to get the correct amount of inward lean on the anchor rods. If they are too vertical, it will be a challenge to get the rib on and if they are leaning too much they will loose some of their holding power.
Proper tension on the rope is critical to the success this type of “greenhouse” since it is the rope which is holding the plastic in place. The plastic is secured lengthwise between 2 stakes which should be a minimum of 12’ away from the last rib. By pulling and securing the cover lengthwise first, you will minimize the cover dipping between the ribs.
We now have a modified Hanley which is narrower and taller, with a two part hoop. Pricing is available upon request. Due to the substantially different wind dynamic, the modified Hanley is not suggested as your first Hanley experience.
Norm shared a bit about Hanleys and the first greenhouses after a recent Coffee Time with Norm. Check out the video here:
