What if I get a hole in the cover?
Small cuts and tears can be repaired with all weather tape. It is virtually the same colour as the cover and effects a tidy repair. When repairing damage it is best to clean the area with Meths inside and out and the tape will adhere much better. You need to patch inside and out where the damage is and this will help strengthen the area.

What makes a Morrifieldtunnel House so strong? Will they stand strong winds?
The design is virtually the same as in 1980 when they were first produced. It has been time tested in Southland conditions since then and we have sold more than 10,000 units nationwide from Stewart Island to the Far North and also Chatham Islands. Some original Tunnelhouse frames are still in use today. The cover and framework have a factory warranty against faulty manufacturing and the cover has a 4-year warranty against UV breakdown. The life expectancy of the cover would be 7-10 years.The arch gets its strength from the fact it’s one piece. We don’t have any joins because they move and eventually shear off.
Morrifield growing tunnels are extremely strong and will stand against strong winds, if they are securely pegged down at all times. They will also withstand hail and snow. We would recommend a little shelter from the prevailing wind.

Are replacement covers available?
The suns UV rays will eventually breakdown the Tunnelhouse film. It can be removed and a new cover installed relatively easily. Contact us with the size of your Morrifield tunnel house and we can send you out a replacement cover, costs for the covers and parts: See our Replacement Parts & Accessories Page.

“Last Monday I ordered a new 5 metre tunnel house from you. It arrived on Wednesday last week.
I want to thank you for the excellent service – we were expecting it to arrive later in the week. Wednesday was a bonus.
We put it up on Friday (a day without wind for a change!). My husband is a mechanic and has also done a lot of engineering work. His comments were that this was the easiest to make up kitset he has ever worked with. The instructions were clear and the sizing and pre drilling of everything was precise.
It all just fitted together so very easily.
We believe in credit where it is due – and your company certainly deserves credit for the quality of your product and your service. The whole process from my first phone call was seamless.”
