Foliage Wire Clips

Vineyards that are established for producing high quality wines are actively managed by the Viticulturist and typically would have either 2 or 3 sets of foliage wires.These wires are in place to help keep the canopy of foliage under control, and at the same time allow a large surface area of leaves to get exposure to the sun.

The foliage wires are normally secured at each pole in the vineyard row by using Trelliclips®.

However, in order to keep it as upright as possible, the canopy needs to be managed between the poles as well.

This is where the use of foliage wire clips is recommended.

Foliage wire clips are available in a variety of sizes and materials, ranging from compressed paper to plastic.

Listed below are 3 types that Cape Agricultural Products supplies to the wine farm industry in South Africa :

C Clip foliage wire clips

The C-Clip foliage wire clip is made from high quality materials and is very easy to apply to the foliage wires.

It has 2 small "studs" that hold one side of the clip in place on one of the wires.

The bright orange colour makes it easy to see the clips on the wires when applying or removing them.

C-Clips can be used on traditional steel wires, as well as on Deltex® polyester wire, in fact C-Clips are ideal for use with Deltex.

Space between wires = 25mm.

Packed 2000 per bag.

CB-20 Vege Clip

Vegeclip Foliage Wire clips

Vege Clips are made from 100% quality biodegradable, vegetable raw materials without any added plastic or hard metals.

Designed and fabricated in France to withstand extreme weather.

The Vege clips were designed to respect the natural environment, with the products being made of French agricultural and vegetable waste.

They leave no residue, and their decomposition allows them to end up as an organic rich substrate in the soil.

The clip is certified by INRA, the French National Institute for Agricultural Research, who did tests on the biodegradability of the materials used.

As with C-Clips, the Vege clips are quick to apply, and if left in the vineyard they will degrade into the soil.

* Vege Clips are ideal for vineyards being grown using ORGANIC methods *

Vege Clips are "soft" on your foliage wires and you can avoid rust which may occur after friction between steel clips/staples and the wire.

Space between wires = 25mm.

Vege Clips can be used on Deltex® polyester wire

Clip A-40

A-40 Foliage wire clip

The A-40 foliage wire clip is a "permanent" clip, also designed and manufactured in the Champagne region of France.

As per the C-Clip, the A-40 clip has a barb on the one side that helps to keep the clip on the wire in case of movement from high winds or other factors.

You can leave the clip on the wire out of season and when it is time to hold the wires together you only have to clip one wire to hold the vegetation. 

Space between wires = 40mm.

The clip can be spotted easily due to it's blue colour.
