A self adhesive foam tape which when placed over Polytunnel hoops prolongs the life of the polythene by at least one year. Protects the polythene cover against hot spots preventing heat degradation. The slippery surface allows the cover to glide over the frame preventing abrasion and snagging of the cover during construction. First Tunnels always uses Anti Hot Spot Tape when constructing polytunnels. Three widths available - 20mm, 25mm & 30mm, 9 metres on each roll.

Excellent adhesion. Good cushioning and the glossy surface helped the cover slide along the frame ridge at the beginning of the covering procedure.

Seems to be a great job but ordered far too much. Might be worth offering the correct amount inclusive and then reduce the price accordingly for those who don’t take your advice.

Amanda Robinson

Easy to use, this tape is recommended to help prolong the life of your tunnel cover as it reduces the contact with the tunnel frame, it was inexpensive so I thought it well worth the extra couple of pounds. Easy to fit and it helps the plastic slide over the frame. I would get this again next time.
