Ken-Bar’s vinyl batten tape makes it simple to staple plastic film to wood framing.
Just position film over wood framing, place batten tape over film, and staple every 4", passing through both the tape and the plastic film. The tape acts as a batten strip to hold the plastic film in place.
The tape is very flexible, making it easy to use; just unroll, hold in place, and staple. When it’s time to remove the plastic film, simply pull on the tape to lift the staples out.
Batten tape is a white vinyl strip 3/4" wide and 1/32" thick. It is formulated to resist cold cracking, and its white color gives your greenhouse a neat, attractive appearance.
Pull tape taut before stapling.
Staple at least every 4".
Use 5/16" or longer staples.
During cold weather, keep the tape in a warm area before use.
Use a double line of tape where conditions are very windy.
For a tighter seal, staple every 2".
