Sheeting with 5 layer technology

Good clamp management can make a real difference to dairy and beef yields so it is essential to maximise silage production through best practice and high quality film products like those found within the Visqueen range.

As with baled silage the expulsion and exclusion of as much air as possible is crucial to the quality of the ensiled crop. For over three decades many farmers have trusted the robust, durable Visqueen sheeting range to achieve this, thanks to its ability to create good ensiling conditions in the clamp.

Typically, forage consists of anything between 40% and 80% of the diet in most dairy and beef production. Feed as a whole represents the largest single cost in this type of farming where reducing losses and maximising quality is the priority. This is why farmers and industry experts use Clingseal, a flexible vacuum sheet that is used directly beneath traditional, heavier silage sheets such as Visqueen Agri-S.

It is thinner and therefore more flexible, allowing it to cling more closely to the contours of the clamp surface and
tuck-in more at the sides. This helps eliminate air pockets and provides a close fitting barrier to significantly reduce top
and shoulder losses from aerobic spoilage.

Additionally, because it provides a better air seal, Clingsealalso facilitates a faster, more efficient fermentation process  delivering enhanced clamp silage quality. Clingseal is also easy to apply, and is suitable for a variety of ensiled crops,
including grass, maize, wholecrop and other moist feeds.

  • Reduces air pockets to enhance effectiveness of conventional sheeting
  • Reduces top and shoulder losses in the clamp
  • Facilitates faster, more efficient fermentation
  • Suitable for several crops including grass, maize, whole crop silage and crimped grain
  • Fully recyclable

Known for its high stength, puncture resistance and escellent seal characteristics, the Visqueen range benefits from the latest manufacturing processes that enables the most effective placement of raw materials within the film blend so that they reach those parts of the film where they are most needed. 

  • Exceptional tear resistance
  • Longer lifespan resulting in better value for money
  • All weather protection with UV inhibitor to resist sunlight damage
  • Excellent opacity and gauge consistency
  • Fully recyclable
