If a 16ft polytunnel is just the right size, not too big and not too small, then you have come to the right place. Simply select the 16ft option and you will be able to choose to purchase a polytunnel kit containing everything you need to make a tunnel of just that size. You can click 'What's in the kit' to find out more about exactly what is included with your 16ft polytunnel and should you require anything else, we have just what you need in our wide range of add-ons and accessories.
Crop bars, base rails, sliding doors and staging can all make it easier to get a bumper yield from your 16ft polytunnel, whether it is for a large domestic set up or commercial use. Don't forget, adding on those extras could not only make your life a lot easier, it can also save you money with our great bonus savings scheme. You can tot up savings of up to 20%! A fairly large polytunnel such as this one is the perfect step up into commercial production and is the smallest commercial size polytunnel we provide. It could be the perfect, cost-effective way to boost your smallholding or other small business venture.
Although the smallest in our range of Commercial structures, the 16ft (4.88m) wide Polytunnel is ideal for many of the demands placed on it by professional growers. The shape lends itself to exceptionally good clearance for working, with ample height for cultivating tall plants and for hanging baskets. It's super strong thanks to 50.8mm diameter E370 high tensile pre-galvanised steel tubing. Every component of this Polytunnel has been developed specifically for this structure, no adapting, no fuss.
