Galebreaker silage covers provide protection for grass and maize silage from birds, rodents and other animals. Designed to withstand the stresses of the agricultural environment, they are made using woven polyethylene and have hemmed edges to offer long-lasting protection and minimise spoilage. Easy to use and install, they eliminate the need for tyres and come with a 10-year guarantee.
Galebreaker’s silage sheets are made from extremely strong 300g/m2 woven polyethylene material. The edges are hemmed and the sheets have bag-fixing loops woven in to the fabric, ready to easily accept the hooks for Galebreaker’s silage bags. The material is closely woven and very strong (it has approximately twice the breaking strength of knitted HDPE of the same weight). It is also very flexible and moulds well to the silage. The close weave and hardwearing properties prevent birds and rodents from being able to peck or scratch through the sheet to get to and spoil areas of the protected silage. Each silage sheet comes with a 10-year guarantee.
Galebreaker’s Sila-bags are made from the same super-strong woven polyethylene material as the silage sheets and can be easily attached using the hooks that are supplied as standard. Sila-bags should be placed all around the edges, across joins and at intervals across the width of the clamp. Once fixed, Galebreaker’s gravel bags stay put. Even in high winds and on steeply sloping sections the bags hold their position.
Sila-Cover® 300 Material
The result of years of research and development, the Sila-Cover 300 is manufactured using 300g/m2 woven polyethylene – proven to have more than twice the strength of the knitted product of the same weight. The superior strength and toughness of the woven material provides excellent resistance to sharp and blunt objects and effectively minimises the risk of damage. The flexibility of the Sila-Cover material makes it quick and easy to install, with its hemmed non-fray edges ensuring it stays put during bad weather and moulds well to the protected silage. We have also included bag fixing loops which makes the fitting and positioning of gravel bags quick and convenient.
