Redpath cloche systems

Redpath manufacture these bespoke cloche frames which are cold rolled and formed into shape from high tensile steel, with each including a tensile spring retaining wire wrap-over clip system.
Originally designed by ‘Kerilea Systems’ they are now manufactured in-house by Redpath with each high tensile zinc coated steel cloche frame including a “wrap-over” spring retaining galvanised wire with built-in end “clip” system to secure the cladding to the individual cloche hoops.  The cloche frames are supplied in five different widths, with the ever popular 1m width offered in two height options (550mm and 1000mm tall)
They can be purchased in the following options:
1.  Small Home gardener 600mm wide x 600mm tall 4m long or 10m long  “gro tunnel’ packs, complete with 110 micron polythene covering
2.  Packs lots of 10 frames in any of the six sizes below (no covering)
3.  Pack lots of 25 frames for larger or commercial users in any of the six sizes below (no covering)

There is also a frame shape to suit 1m width raised garden beds, these are supplied in 10 frame pack lots (see below)

You can use your own coverings or a range of coverings is also available from Redpath including the heavy grade Duracloche clear 110 micron cloche film with UV stabiliser, Insulnet Frost netting, Birdnett, Biomesh insect screening, or Shadecloth (see options below)


600mm  wide x  650mm tall (requires approx 1.9m wide covering)
800mm  wide x  600mm tall (requires approx 1.9m wide covering)
1000mm wide x 550mm tall (requires approx 1.9m wide covering)
1000mm wide x 1000mm tall (requires approx 2.7m width covering)
1250mm wide x  900mm tall (requires approx 2.7m width covering)
1500mm wide x  800mm tall (requires approx 2.7m width covering)

The packs include the frames & the bespoke design “wrap-over” wire clip system that holds the covering down onto each frame.
Redpath cloche systems are popular for Strawberry, Kumara, Seasonal flowers, early seedlings and late season protection of a wide variety of vegetables and flower crops.
The cloche’s are simple to install, and you can make the tunnels to any length to suit your needs. The frames should be spaced to suit your local conditions – this might be as close as 1m apart for windy sites or if using the Duracloche 110 micron polythene covers – and as much as 3m apart for more protected sites or if using lighter more breathable covers.
Simply push each side leg of the individual frames into the ground beside your growing bed, Angle the very end frame outward slightly, Slide your cover over the frames and pull the cover tight end-to-end then bury it at the ends or knot around a timber peg to hold taught. You can then fit the wrap-over spring wire clip to each frame to retain the covering to the frame hoops.
Remember to purchase more covering length than the length of your tunnel, as you need to secure the covering at each end of the tunnel by burying it or by bundling it together and wrapping it around a timber stake. (usually about 1.5m is needed at each end)
If required you can ventilate the cloche tunnel by sliding the side of the film up or down the sidewalls of the low tunnel system, the wire wrap-over clip will temporarily hold the covering in place.

Note : Older designs (different widths and height cloche frames) are also still available, however these are only available in minimum lot orders of 3 x 25 frame pack orders on an indent basis, – made to order not stocked)

There is currently a lead time of up to 12 work days for dispatching Cloches.
