The Gripple Plus Range provides a strong, fast and economical way to install and maintain a solid trellis structure. The range includes the GP Small, GP Medium and GP Large, which are designed to accommodate the wire diameters/gauges most commonly used in vineyard applications. The entire Gripple Plus Range uses our patented push-fit system – a system that utilises ceramic rollers to actively grip the wire while under tension, while still allowing for additional tension to be applied at any time. The uniquely simple concept is as speedy as it is painless, creating a secure join that keeps your time, labour and hassle to a minimum. Combining a zinc housing with a sintered ceramic roller gives the Gripple Plus Range maximum corrosion resistance, while maintaining strength and functionality. As no bending or knotting is need while using Gripple tensioners, the durability and longevity of your vineyard wire is optimized.
The Torq Tensioning Tool and Contractor Tool are specifically designed to apply tension to your wires through a Gripple product. In addition to the core range of Gripple Plus products, we also provide bracing kits and Badger Earth Anchors. By using our fast, efficient and re-tensionable products, installation labour is minimized and annual maintenance is negligible.
For the maximum possible yield on your grape harvest, your vineyard requires only the best - a trellising system that can be tensioned in seconds, yet last for years.
Our Gripple Plus range, which includes the Small, Medium and Large, are all straightforward to use and offer increased load ratings, ensuring a quick installation and the greatest tension for your trellis.
As a completely re-tensionable trellis system, our products are made to last. For even though galvanised wire is known to stretch up to 10%, the Torq tool makes light work of annual re-tensioning – with this compact, lightweight design it’s possible to re-tension up to 10 hectares of vineyard in one day. To complete the trellis system, the GPAK is the perfect accompaniment; and whatever the soil type then look no further than the Gripple Anchor.
Not exclusive simply to wine-making, our system can be used in table grape vineyards that grow much sweeter grapes, which are prone to pests and so require netting and other protection systems to defend their crops.
