Questions & Answers

4) What about windy conditions?

  1. The Air Roller works impressively in windy conditions compared to traditional methods.
  2. Simply peg fixing point Air Roller / cover edge and start rolling for a few metres before pegging both parallel edges after tensioning cover. Continue to roll, tension and peg in stages until the cover is fully extended. Retension cover in its entirety until full cover is without ripples and creases which allows wind to travel over the top rather than underneath the cover avoiding possibly blowing the cover off.
  3. To remove the cover simply perform the peg and roll in reverse. Unpeg a section then roll the Air Roller before stopping to unpeg again.
  4. The Air Roller can be rolled with or against the with the wind.

  3. Running the Air Roller east west allows the user to roll the cover to expose any of the 5 pitches being worked on leaving the remainder of the cover still in place.
