Manufactured from non-woven polypropylene, Freeze Blankets are put directly over plants or shrubs for frost or freeze protection, creating a blanket that traps in the ground heat. All sides of the blanket must be sealed to keep out the freezing temperature.
There are two weights of Freeze Blankets available for frost and freeze protection. The heavier the weight, the longer trapped heat will remain under the blanket.
Medium Weight 4 oz
Medium Weight 4 oz. Freeze Blankets will protect crops to a temperature of 28 degrees Fahrenheit. For protection from colder temperatures use a heavy weight blanket.
When the temperature reaches freezing, water can be sprinkled over the top of the blanket. As the water freezes, an igloo effect is maintained trapping what heat is left and protecting the crop.
Heavy Weight 6 oz
Heavy Weight 6 oz. Freeze Blankets will protect woody ornamental crops to a temperature of 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Protection below 0 degrees can be accomplished by sprinkling water over the top of the blanket when temperatures reach freezing.
Standard widths of Freeze Blankets are twelve and fifteen feet. Standard roll length is three hundred feet. Custom widths from the mill are 12’x15’.
