Tubex Tree Shelter

Applications


Tubex has been at the forefront of shelter development since the first research into treeshelters came into fruition in the early 1980’s.


Shelterguard

Tubex shelters have been specially designed to provide the right solution for your planting needs. Over the years we have developed unique features that all contribute to the effective establishment of vines and fruit trees.

Our most popular mesh shelter, the Tubex Shelterguard provides reliable plant protection, enhances growth as well as being designed to blend subtly into the natural environment.

A unique product, the Tubex Shelterguard is designed to give the benefits of enhanced growth through the microclimate but also allows the plant to acclimatise to the outside environment through its two-staged degradation process. Welded to the 12mm square mesh is a very fine Polyethylene film which starts to degrade after approx. 3 growing seasons, gradually exposing the plant to the outside environment allowing the bark to harden.


Combietube

Designed for more exposed sites, the Tubex Combitube combines the benefits of a solid base for improved establishment and reliable protection, with a ventilated upper section, allowing the tree to acclimatise before emerging from the shelter. Tubex Combitube is designed to last a minimum of 5 years*, boosting the chances of survival and healthy growth through the early stages of the tree’s life. Ventilation is provided by a number of 4mm laser generated perforations in a set of 100mm deep bands at the top of the shelter, allowing for ‘wind rock’ to strengthen both root and stem as well as hardening the bark of the tree. 45cm of solid base allows chemical spraying and creates the microclimate, whilst the perforations ventilate the tree and are small enough for the branches not to grow through. Tubex Combitube is also available in wider diameters for the larger species of trees.
*shelter longevity is dependent on site and weather conditions but is typically 5-7 years


Vinewrap

Tubex shelters have been specially designed to provide the right solution for your planting needs. Over the years we have developed unique features that all contribute to the effective establishment of vines and fruit trees.
Our unique wrap for viticulture, the Tubex Vinewrap allows access to the vine for maintenance as well as providing plant protection.
The Tubex Vinewrap is a twin-walled tube that has been split vertically, enabling it to wrap around a vine and expand as the plant grows. It can also be installed and removed easily allowing for bud rubbing and inspection. The Tubex Vinewrap also provides protection against animal browsing, herbicide sprays and accidental damage during mechanical weeding.
*Shelter longevity is dependent on site and weather conditions but is typically a minimum 2 years


Since then, Tubex has worked hard to build the strong global brand that it is today.
