Questions and Answers

Tips and information on our silo bags:

Silo bags are important to optimally seal the silo cover and at the same time to weigh it down. The woven HDPE monofilament yarn guarantees exceptional robustness and ensures a very long service life. You can find out more about silo bags in the following FAQs.

What are silo bags?

Silo bags are woven bags filled with round gravel, which are used to weigh down and stabilize the silo cover (underlay film, silo film and silo protection cover). They are woven from a synthetic monofilament yarn, very robust, durable and very easy to handle thanks to their loops and handles.

What are silo bags made out of?

Our silo bags are made of high-quality HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) monofilament yarn and are manufactured in a very close-meshed weave. This gives them excellent strength.

Who needs silo bags and where are silo bags used?

Silo sacks are used in agriculture and are needed by farmers to better seal the silo cover (silo film, underlay film, silo guard) airtight and at the same time to weigh it down.

When and why should silo bags be used?

In order to achieve the optimum compaction of the silo, the use of silo bags is essential. Each silo bag from Zill is equipped with handles and therefore more convenient and easier to lay down on top of the silo. Furthermore, when using silo bags, rainwater can drain well from the silo, which often is collected in puddles in tires. Also, the risk of damage to the silo cover by scrap metals contained in tires is reduced immensely.

Why should you use silo bags?

Silo bags should be used because they seal the silo optimally and they protect silo protection grids from rising due to wind. They offer many advantages over the use of old tires as a weight.

How to fill up silo bags?

Preferably fill the silo bags with round gravel to achieve the best outcome. Split and other sharp-edged rubble can damage the bag. Filling it with sand causes rainwater to collect in puddles on the silo, because it cannot drain well.

Which gravel for silo bags / fill silo bags with what?

Round gravel about 4-8 mm diameter

  • Basic: 25 x 100 cm
  • Large: 27 x 120 cm

Are silo bags UV stable?

Zill silo bags are highly UV stable and can therefore be used for several years.

Are silo bags waterproof?

No, and they are not meant to be either. Our silo bags are woven from a monofilament round yarn, which ensures excellent water drainage. The effect is enhanced by the use of round gravel.

Which silo bag is the best?

How to properly cover the silo?

To cover a silo correctly, several steps must be noted.

Step 1: First, cover the walls with side wall film. Our silo side wall clamps can help you here.

Step 2: Lay the underlay film as the first layer over the silage, then fold the side wall film from the outside over the underlay or suction film.

Step 3: Now cover the silo with the silage film.

Step 4: In order to protect the silage film from damage, a silage protection grid should absolutely be placed on top.

Step 5: Now weigh down the silo protection grid with silo bags and place them in lines across the silo.

For bulk silos and bunker silos with a steep pile, the silo bags can be afixed with the quick'n fix silo bag fastening system.
