Vineyard Stakes Video – Installation Made Easier

Unistrut Defender Salt Spray Testing

This new video from Allied Tube & Conduit® on the improved vine training system details how the Allied system installs quicker and even reduces vineyard maintenance and labor costs. It’s easier to raise and lower training (trellising) wires in a single step. It eliminates the need for clips, nails or other wire attachment methods with engineered notches. Allied’s square tubular stake improves driveability with superior strength and durability.

Allied’s vine training system is capable of incorporating drip irrigation lines above ground and away from sharp tools making it easy to detect leaks and maintain water lines. The vine training system also reduces equipment damage due to fallen metal clips when harvesting grapes, it reduces vine damage due to over-handling by using this efficient notched system and reduces vine breakage due to wind damaged stakes.

For more information on the Allied Improved Vine Training System check out the video.
