The annoying summer thunderstorms are a real scourge for those who have some
cultures to defend against a fearful enemy that presents itself in these situations: the
hailstorm! This adversary is a type of atmospheric precipitation formed by many pieces
of ice (commonly called "hailstones"), generally spherical or
spheroidal, which fall from the most imposing cumulus clouds, the cumulonimbus. Theirs
precipitate can prove fatal for any type of crop: orchards, ornamental plants and
vegetables. Fortunately, special protections made up of networks have been invented
that shield crops and hail.

Especially for companies, anti-hail protection systems have now become
an indispensable tool for safeguarding and producing. For example, an orchard
protected by anti-hail nets ensures constant supply, both qualitative and quantitative,
and therefore the maintenance of the acquired standards and market shares. Have the
guarantee of always having the product is a necessity not only for those companies that
they reach directly the consumer, but also for those activities that supply them
cooperatives. This certainty also benefits from the planning of company works and,
in particular, the collection that, moreover, guarantees the presence of fruits with
very homogeneous characteristics. Despite the cost of an anti-hail facility either
relevant, it is clear that it is
now become an essential device for interested companies.

Depending on the size of the land to be protected, there are two types of networks
Network with umbrella structure: it is an ideal network for small lands
dimensions, like private vegetable gardens. It consists of a single pole placed in the middle a
support of the whole network, or 3/4 poles on the sides;
- Network with tunnel structure: if the plants are placed on a very surface
wide is instead recommended this type of structure with 4 or 6 upright posts to which
poles with a semicircular shape are fixed which will support the net.

The installation of an anti-hail net, although relatively simple, involves
some critical issues to pay close attention to. First of all, during the assembly the networks
they go well stretched, trying to avoid the formation of tears (or folds a
U or V shape) that could cause almost more damage than the hail itself. another
essential precaution is the use of thickened networks on the sides, so that the installation results
smoother. In case of difficulty, the production houses also make available to the
clips that help anchor the net.

Some might think that an anti-hail net would cause excessive problems
shadowing crops, but I probably am not aware of the fact that, in
in case of necessity, particular white nets are sold, also called
"Transparent", which limit the shadows that are created. In any case, the networks
anti-hail are not a problem in this respect, indeed, in certain locations
they could even help to limit excessive intense light.
Finally, anti-hail nets can also act as anti-bird nets, as the structure is
essentially identical and only changes the installation that, in the second case, provides
a closure also on the sides. On the contrary, the cheapest anti-bird nets can not
act as anti-hail nets, since they have wider meshes easily
traversable by the "beans".
