Secure Covers (Protective Silage Cover)
Our silage covers protect your silage sheets from bird and wildlife damage
Secure Covers® make sheeting up silage clamps quick, clean and easy.
Made from a patent-protected, tough interlocked knitted HDPE, Secure Covers are used over silage sheets and fixed in place using Secure Gravel Bags.
The finely knitted mesh helps to prevent bird damage to the silage sheet and when pulled down, stops birds from feeding on the silage face.
Reasons to use Secure Covers
Made from a flexible non-fray knit, Secure Covers keep your silage film in close contact with the silage surface.
This creates an airtight seal, which will rid your clamp of surface waste and helps to reduce dry matter losses within your clamp.
Secure Covers unique construction, using our patent-protected square thread technology, reduces ‘wind lift’ ensuring your silage sheets remain in place on your clamp. This helps to improve silage quality by maintaining an airtight seal between the silage sheet and the silage surface.
Secure Covers protect your silage sheets from bird and wildlife damage, helping to keep oxygen out of your clamp.
All Secure Covers are supplied with a 10 year full UV stability guarantee.
Why are Secure Covers different?
Secure Covers are made from a tough, interlocked knitted textile (HDPE), which will not fray or ladder.
Secure Covers have a rough and smooth side. When used rough side up it allows our Secure Gravel Bags to grip the covers preventing them from slipping and falling off the clamp. For silage clamps and field clamps with steep sides, we also recommend our
Gravel Bag Belts to securely fix your gravel bags in place.
During the development of Secure Covers, we tested many different types of textiles and rejected any made from a simple woven material.
In our trials, we found that simple woven netting would fray and disintegrate. Simple woven material is also very stiff and cannot follow the contours of the silage.
This combined with poor wind lift performance can lead to aerobic spoilage and poor quality silage.
Is Secure Covers a woven or knitted net? Secure Covers is a knitted net – much stronger and more durable compared to a woven net.
Do Secure Covers fray? No – Secure Covers netting does not fray due to its unique knitted structure.
How long do Secure Covers last? We have customers who have been using the same Secure Covers™ for more than 10 years and each cover comes with a 10 year full UV stability guarantee.
