The Balance 'E' Type Shelter is a Fine Mesh Shelter with 30cm Spray Protection to the base.


Balance ‘E’ Type not recommended for use on conifers — it is considered too narrow.

60cm Shelters can be supported with 1 or 2, 3ft 14/16lb or 3ft 16/18lb canes placed on the windward side of the shelter and stapled through mesh. The size of cane used will depend on site exposure and soil depth. With 75cm Shelters use 3’ 6” 18/20lb or 4’ 22/24lb canes.

1.2m Shelters can be supported by one 1.2m or 1.35m 32x32mm stakes or one 5ft 28/32lb cane placed inside shelter and fixed via an R36 or R34 Staple Gun in 2 places through mesh.

Cane supports should be adequate for fast growing trees on suitable, unexposed sites. Stakes should be used if exposed. The type of support will depend on individual site conditions and exposure.

No liability will be accepted for windblown shelters if not suitably secured. (Stakes must be no more than 30cm below shelter top when knocked in).

Usage Notes: Beech planted in Balance shelters should be greater than 40cm height to reduce woolly aphid problems as found with tubes. Red Cedars should not be planted in Balance Shelters.

Stakes placed inside shelters will need to be removed prior to tree stem rubbing the stake. These shelters have built in vertical weakness and will split vertically in time, but this will depend on UV penetration and sunlight over a number of years, causing degradation of the shelter sidewalls.

The removal of shelters should be considered if sufficient degradation of the material has not occurred prior to the stem breakout or damage.
