Free Construction Guides
To help our customers we have produced FREE, detailed downloadable construction guides for all the First Tunnels products, covering everything from the initial setting out to ensuring the tension on your polythene cover is drum tight.
We haven’t stopped there, we know many people build their polytunnels at the weekend or over a bank holiday when our office is closed, so we have also produced a series of ‘handy-cam ‘ polytunnel construction videos. This collection of videos can be viewed anytime, on your home computer, and even your phone for when you are in the thick of things constructing your polytunnel. We’ve also set up a Construction Helpline specifically for weekends. This allows you to talk directly to a constructor, ask their expert opinion, get the answers and complete your polytunnel.
