Straw & hay bale protection covers


Ensure an optimum quality of your straw

Toptex® straw cover fabric effortlessly helps to ensure an optimum harvest quality at any given time of the year. Toptex® fabrics protect straw bales reliably against any impact caused by wind and rain, while providing effective respiration for the harvested good. Thus leading to a constantly high quality of the seasonal straw, which is preserved effortlessly throughout the whole winter period, drying off after any heavy rainfall while effectively avoiding mold development on the harvest.

Toptex® straw cover fabric is produced from green, continuous polypropylene filament at 130 g/m2 (3.8 oz/yd2) and available in the following sizes:

  • 9.8 x 12.5m (10.7 x 13.7 yd)
  • 12 x 25m (13.1 x 27.3 yd)
  • 9.8 x 25m (10.7 x 27.3 yd)

Installation guidelines

Installation of the Toptex® fabric should always be at least around 45° degrees and very tightly adjusted to avoid loose "wavy" appearance leading to minor protection or leakage.
