However, Jiggly Greenhouse offers products that make installation simple and rolling the ventilation film easy to manipulate, meaning after installation, the roll-up method of ventilation is incredibly effortless and unproblematic. The essentials of installing the roll-up method with your greenhouse include the greenhouse film, the roller bar and crank, and the snap clamps.
Installing Roll-Up Greenhouse Plastic
Make sure to have properly measured your plastic to cover the greenhouse. Generally, over-measure to account for mismeasuring and with consideration for length lost when securing the film in the u-channels and on the roller bar.
- Place the greenhouse plastic over the greenhouse frame, securing it to the u-channels along the hip rails.
- Install a 3/4” [1” OD] guide rail for the Manual Hand Crank Winch. This will need to reach the height of the hip rail.
- Attach the crank to its guide rail, then attach the roller bar to the crank.
- Once rolled into place, you can secure the plastic with the snap-on clamps.
