Raven Engineered Films’ advanced geosynthetic grain pile cover strapping system secures covers, providing long-lasting protection against wind and weather.
Raven Engineered Films, a division of Raven Industries Inc., introduced a particularly sturdy addition to its lineup of grain cover solutions: the DuraCinch Strapping System, a geosynthetic grain pile cover. As part of the company’s total system approach to grain cover solutions, the patent-pending DuraCinch Strapping System is designed to secure grain covers in extreme elements, providing greater and longer-lasting protection for major grain pile storage.
Raven custom-fabricates the DuraCinch Strapping System to fit piles of any shape and size; the company sews it directly onto Raven’s high-quality grain cover solutions—strengthening the cover’s overall performance and resulting in enhanced protection against wind and weather. Because Raven fully attaches the straps to the cover, the geosynthetic grain pile cover system eliminates zippering holes caused by traditional, pocketed strapping systems.
“When you have a large grain pile, the last thing you want is for it to go to waste because it was exposed to oxygen and moisture,” says Tim Hart, director of sales for Raven Engineered Films. “We’re excited to make the DuraCinch Strapping System available to our customers and give them added peace of mind that their grain storage systems are fully equipped to handle severe weather conditions and provide continuous protection for these valuable assets.”
“We tested the DuraCinch Strapping System this season on one of our three bunkers,” says Jon Hjetland, grain elevator manager at Cargill AgHorizons Inc. “Nebraska was hit at 70+ mph [113 kph] with a wind event, and the DuraCinch pile was the only one that remained fully covered.”

Raven Engineered Films creates custom fit covers for a wide range of agriculture applications, including sugar beet pile covers, salt pile covers and any other applications requiring quality customized covers to protect the pile from exposure to the elements.
