Good evening,

I am building a 3 seater cruiser and wonder whether anybody can point me in the direction of the sort of plastic extrusion that is used to hold the plastic sheeting on polytunnels?

I have searched the Internet but do not seem to be able to find any UK suppliers.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

Is this the sort of stuff you would be looking for- although this has aluminium extrusion- no idea where to get it from:

you could also have a look at the pvc extrusion used to close up the ends of vacuum bags- rod with cirular groove- these guys do it i think

I don't think there is a UK agent although I suspect people have imported it.

Ken sells this brilliant stuff - it's sort of C channel reinforced flexible plastic (got thread in it!). It slips over 3mm ally with the skirt underneath held on by mini bulldog clips.

It also provides a bit of bump protection as it's fairly thick.
