5 reasons not to buy a fruit protection system from FruitSecurity!

5 reasons not to buy a fruit protection system from FruitSecurity!

At FruitSecurity Holland we would love to tell you that we have the very best solution for every fruit grower. In fact, we often do. On our website, at trade fairs and via representatives.

We do our very best through innovations such as the BlueFlex system or the automatic rain protection system to help every fruit grower the best we can. But we do not have a solution for some fruit growers. In this blog, you can read the 5 reasons not to install a FruitSecurity fruit protection system.

Note: This blog contains many links to other pages on our website. To get a fair impression of why you should not buy from FruitSecurity Holland, we would recommend that you read this blog in full before viewing the other pages.

Reason 1: Pole distance

FruitSecurity Systems have a maximum pole distance. If this distance is exceeded, it is no longer a FruitSecurity System. A fruit protection system has a lot to endure in a storm or hailstorm. A hail net system and rain protection system must have immense strength to hold up.

Pole distances, and of course the thickness of the pole, are very important in this. FruitSecurity's posts and post spacings have been tested and this allows us to give a warranty. So do you want a larger post spacing than we recommend? Then you are better off buying from another supplier.

Reason 2: Anchorage distance

The same applies to anchor spacing, 3.0m anchor spacing ensures optimum force and tensile strength. If this is much smaller, posts are likely to break in a heavy hailstorm. Do you really need a smaller anchor spacing? Then the anchor can always be placed one post section earlier. Is that not possible? Then it's probably better to buy from another supplier.

Reason 3: Price transparency

FruitSecurity Holland is honest about its prices. You can view all our prices via this link on the website.

Because we are honest about prices, we cannot provide discounts on our protection systems. This makes buying a rain cover or hail net system advantageous for every fruit grower. And you know where you stand even before you talk to us. That's fair, isn't it?

Disclaimer: every plot is different. Every month we have different purchase prices. As a result, the price given on the website may vary slightly. We make great efforts to keep the price up to date. And to make the price as fair as possible for our customers. The price in some countries may also be affected by transport costs.

Reason 4: Lifespan

FruitSecurity Holland finds it important that when we visit you in 10 years' time (of course we try to do this more often), the rain canopy or hail net system will look the same as when we built it. Because of this, we have exclusive contracts with the best partners in the fruit industry.

Looking for a temporary solution? Then we may not be the right supplier for you.

Reason 5: Installation time per hectare

The hail net systems and rain covers FruitSecurity builds are designed with the vision that is important to us: A well-tested, affordable fruit protection system with as little recurring work as possible.

A hail net system or rain protection system needs to be rolled up and down during the busiest times of the year. So this has to be quick and not too difficult. But also affordable. For this reason, FruitSecurity's systems have a slightly longer installation time per hectare compared to other systems on the market, so you can reap the benefits in the years afterwards.

Do you want to build your own rain canopy or hail net system? And does it have to be super fast? Maybe with a system from another supplier it can be done faster. But calculate the annual costs carefully to see which is more advantageous!
