Questions and Answers

Tipps and information about our straw, hay bale and grain protection fleeces:

To protect hay bales, straw bales and grain from wind and weather and dirt, we have developed our protection fleeces. They repel water from the outside and at the same time release moisture from the inside, which ensures the best possible ventilation.
You can find out more about protective covers in the following Q&As.

What are straw fleeces, hay fleeces and grain protection fleeces?

Hay fleeces, straw fleeces or grain protection fleeces are nonwoven protective fabrics made of polypropylene, which can be used to cover various harvested products in outdoor storage such as hay bales, straw bales and grains and thus protect them from weather influences.

Who needs hay/straw protective covers?

Our protective covers are mainly used by farmers and contractors. This is not only space-saving and flexible, but also an extremely cost-effective alternative to warehouse storage, as the bales can be stored directly next to the field.

When should hay/straw protective fabrics be used?

Protective fabrics have been developed to be able to store hay and straw bales outdoors without the influences of weather on them. The cover nonwoven protects the bales from wind and rain and remains free of mould, as no moisture is able to collect, when used properly, due to the excellent air ventilation. In addition, the protective fleeces enable a cost-effective alternative to indoor storage.

Where to buy hay/straw protective fleeces?

You can buy Zill hay bale, straw bale and grain protective fleeces from your agricultural retailer. Our protection fabrics are available there in large quantities, in different variations and sizes.

What do hay/straw protective covers cost?

Zill protective covers are available at different prices, depending on the length, width and technical characteristics of the nonwoven fabric. Your local retailer can name you the exact prices.

Why are hay fleeces/straw fleeces useful, what distinguishes a hay fleece/straw fleece?

Hay and straw fleeces are very useful because they have the ability to drain rainwater on the outside and allow moisture to escape from the inside. This means that bales of straw and hay can be safely stored outdoors and the harvest quality is maintained throughout the storage period. In addition, our protective fabrics are highly UV-stable and can be used for many years.

Which side of the hay/strew protective cover is up? And how to set it up?

With our premium PolyTex® protective cover, it doesn’t matter which side is at the top, as both sides have a specially treated surface to repel water.

How big should the hay fleece/straw protective fleece be?

It depends on how many bales should be covered with the protective fleece. Take a look at our example of the ratio of number of bales to fabric dimensions:

 

How to store hay/straw protective nonwovens?

The protective nonwoven should be completely dried after use and then folded. Ideally, the fleece is stored in a dry, clean, dark area where there are likely no rodents. That significantly extends the life of the fleece. If our FixTex adhesive tape is used in combination with the FixTex silo bag crabiner, it can be stored with the FixTex tape still adhered.

How to affix a hay fleece/straw protective fleece?

The protective fleece can be easily attached to the bales with our robust fastening nails. Furthermore, the individual fleece fabrics can be attached by using our FixTex adhesive tape.

Are hay/straw protective covers waterproof?

Straw bale and hay bale protective covers are water-repellent, but not completely waterproof. However, entrapped water can easily escape through the breathable fabric.

What are the uses of a cover fleece?

As already mentioned, the cover fleece is mostly used for covering straw and hay bales. However, there are also many other areas of application, such as a wood chip protective nonwoven for covering wood chips, as grain protection nonwoven for covering grain from dirt, as compost protective nonwoven for covering compost or as protective cover for sugar beet or potatoes.

What accessories are there?

To attach the fleece, we offer robust fastening nails with metal or plastic pins. These can be easily inserted into the bales through the protective fabric. Also, we offer the FixTex adhesive tape. With the double-sided adhesive version, individual panels of the fleece can be safely and easily connected. With the one-sided adheisive version, silo bags can be affixed wit a FixTex silo bag carabiner to weigh it down without puncturing the fabric.
