Executive Cover - (conical shaped, 4-piece design, stepped, custom-fitted, RainFlap™ seams included, YokeLift™ system incorporated)
Economy Cover - (4-piece design, flat non-fitted, stepped, YokeLift™, RainFlap™ seaming selection available at additional cost, previously known as Integra 4-Piece Cover)

Raven Secondary Grain Cover Protection: Exclusive WebNet™ (external net systems) and innovative Fortress™ (internal strap system).
WebNet™ External Net Systems are available in heavy and light duty options and are designed in individual webbing sections for ease-of-use, sections can be added or removed without uninstalling the entire net system.
Fortress™ Internal Strap System integrates securing straps directly into the cover allowing for individual strap release to open partial sections of the pile without removing the entire protection system. Raven accepts return straps with 50% discount credit towards a new strap order for next year.
Raven grain covers solutions are designed with the user in mind, by targeting simple and effective cover installations. Our easy-to-use custom RainFlap™ seaming method utilizes an easy-to-seal Velcro® attachment for seamless joining of panels, removing the need to drag sewing equipment up on the pile to join panels. The Raven YokeLift™ system increases tarp strength and decreases cover stress from the lift ring area; the greatest stress point during installation. YokeLift™ systems are produced from heavy-duty vinyl tarp material and durable webbing to securely fasten on to woven or scrim reinforced polyethylene tarps for overall cost reduction, while still providing superior cover performance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Isn’t plastic just plastic?
No. Even though a number of companies want you to believe that “it’s just plastic”, there are a number of major differences within materials out in the ag marketplace. Being able to compare test values is a good first step. If a company is not prepared or doesn’t want to provide a product data sheet, it should be a red flag as to the type of product it is. Raven post all product data sheets right out on our website to assist customers and will send a physical sample of material upon request.
What do the ASTM test methods mean to me?
The ASTM (ASTM International, originally known as the American Society for Testing and Materials) standardized test methods are used so a fair comparison can be made between products manufactured by various companies. You can learn more about the actual test methods by visiting our Learning Center feature and clicking Test Procedures. Reputable manufacturers will normally always provide a product data sheet with the standard ASTM test methods used for their industry.
How do I purchase materials from Raven?
The most common way for you to purchase plastic from Raven Industries, Inc. is to contact your local Raven distributor. If you don’t know who that is, feel free to use the Find Distributor option to request a distributor contact you.
What is the largest size grain cover I can purchase?
Raven is well known for its ability to produce extra large covers to fit your pile. Raven can produce panels up to 8,000 lbs in widths of 200’ plus, depending on the thickness along with lengths up to 500’. The overall size of the pile being covered will dictate how many panels would be required.
Does Raven make covers that will fit round piles or ring lift systems?
Yes, we manufacture covers that eliminate the “waste” on the corners by making a step tarp. For the ring lift systems, we use our technology to get the covers made, but we do utilize one of our distributors to handle the information gathering and sales aspect of the ring lift systems.
