Raven Introduces DuraCinch™ Strapping System for Grain Storage
Advanced strapping system secures grain covers, provides long-lasting protection against wind and weather
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — (February 1, 2022) — Raven Industries, Inc. (the Company) announced today that Raven Engineered Films has introduced a powerful addition to its lineup of grain cover solutions: the DuraCinch™ Strapping System. 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.
Custom-fabricated to fit piles of any shape and size, the patent pending DuraCinch Strapping System is sewn directly onto the company’s high-quality grain cover solutions — strengthening the cover’s overall performance and resulting in enhanced protection against wind and weather. Because the straps are fully attached to the cover, the 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 moisture,” said 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,” said Jon Hjetland, Cargill. “Nebraska was hit at 70+ MPH 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.
