UbiGro can be installed using a support structure that utilizes durable cables attached to greenhouse purlins that support the suspended film a few inches beneath the greenhouse cover.
In some greenhouse architecture, UbiGro can be suspended horizontally above the plants and away from the greenhouse cover. If installing horizontally, it is recommended to leave space between each strip of UbiGro to allow for adequate airflow.
Hardware can be purchased along with your UbiGro order which includes vinyl coated airline cable, clamps, cable stops, and grommets. Other equipment to have on hand are ladders/lifts, gloves, tape measure, scissors, screw drivers, and wrenches.
