Our Wind Bracing upgrade kit adds strength and rigidity to your Caterpillar Tunnel — allowing it to withstand stronger winds. When paired with our Spring Wire upgrade kit, you also have the ability to eliminate the cone-shaped plastic bunching at each end of your tunnel. This can be helpful with installations where space is limited — or where traditional, vertical endwalls are desired.
The Wind Bracing upgrade kit contains 8 flanged pipes and 16 brace bands with all necessary nuts and bolts. Wind Bracing should be installed at roughly 45° angles between the bottom of the third bow, and about 4’ high on the end bow (see photo).
