To our east coast customers, please note, with Hurricane Fiona approaching, (and any in the future, as we’ve posted previously with Teddy and Dorian) there are some key things you need to do to prepare and give your structures the best chance possible of surviving.
- It is critically important to inspect all the greenhouses and their anchoring systems.
- If you have anything extra which can be used as an anchor … use it in the direction of the prevailing winds.
- Make sure that there are no loose ends of wirelock inserts or any loose plastic coverings
- Make sure that there aren’t any frayed parts to any ropes on the tunnels and that the ropes are TIGHT.
- If you see things coming apart during the storm and it is still safe to go out,
CUT THE COVER.
It is easier to replace the cover then the whole structure.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email or phone us this week, we will respond to every email and please, most of all be safe, our thoughts are with you
We had previously shared this ahead of hurricane Teddy and Dorian (as many of you have found on our website already!) but it is all still very relevant ahead of any hurricane, as Fiona approaches the east coast. Please be safe and prepare what you can. We at Multi Shelters will hold you in our thoughts this week
