  • Maintains the quality of the silage in the closed off silo
  • Protects the air-tight underlay film from UV radiation, mechanical stress and the elements
  • Reduces air exchange

Lining Wrap

Lining Wrap - Protects Your Silo and Your Silage

Most effective protection of the silo wall and joints against acidic corrosion.

By using lining wrap you prevent silage effluent from escaping at undesirable locations. Moreover, you provide air-tight and water-tight edge closure for the silage. We recommend overlapping at least 30 cm over the silo wall base and 1 m over the silo wall. Additionally, you can install a drain pipe between the silage and the lining wrap to reduce water pressure on the silo wall.
