In some cases, constructing permanent storage facilities might not be feasible. In addition, some farmers might find these permanent storage areas impractical as well. After all, some months down the line, you might need storage space in another section of your field. But, you won’t be able to move your permanent storage facilities. It is also worth highlighting that many farmers could find the cost of purchasing silos beyond their means.
In situations like this, using temporary storage facilities is often the best bet. As a result, farmers often use PVC tarps for meeting their large-scale temporary storage requirements. The grain bunker tarps that Polytex supplies to farmers come with grain storage covers too. Using these can keep the agricultural yield safe from the elements. In addition, these covers can also help in keeping pests, rodents and vermin away from your grain.
Farmers often need to protect their agricultural produce from the elements. In particular, they need to do this during the harvest season. However, not many farmers have pockets deep enough to enable them to construct large permanent storage facilities on their properties. This is why they need to rely on hay and bunker tarps to keep their grain safe. And, when it comes to providing high-quality tarps in Australia, Polytex Tarpaulins is the brand that many farmers and industrial enterprises rely on.

Very often, especially during the harvest season, farmers need to store their crops in the fields. Not many farmers are prudent enough to use grain bunker tarps for protecting their crops. Neglecting the use of these tarps could be quite harmful. Inclement weather conditions could damage their yield quite easily. In a single stroke, the rains could wipe away weeks of hard labour. In addition, the rains could bring all the money invested in planting crops and looking after them to naught.
Crops also remain susceptible to attacks by an assortment of pests and rodents. An infestation of rats and mice could cause a significant amount of damage to the produce of the land. Similarly, sometimes factory and mill owners leave their machines in the open for various reasons. They don’t realise that the rains could easily damage their equipment

In the poultry industry, housing your chickens well is an important consideration. Many poultry businesses construct specific shelters to keep their poultry safe. However, poultry shelters do not involve as much detail and space as pig shelters do. This is why many farmers utilise their existing buildings for housing their chickens.
Some of the pre-requisites that a good poultry shelter will need to possess include:
- Appropriate size
- Temperature controls
- Adequate ventilation (including provisions for minimising cold and unwanted airflows)
- Adequate light and sunshine
- Freedom from moisture and dampness and,
- Adequate protection from pests and rodents
Polytex has a tremendous understanding of the specific requirements of poultry farmers. This is why we’ve come up with various products especially for them. For instance, we offer a new style fan cover that suits a variety of sizes and configurations. These fan covers feature auto release attachment systems that release the fan covers automatically once the fan starts. They are ideal for large cone fans and smaller square-shaped units. They can minimise the unwanted cold airflows from your eco shelters.
For years, Polytex has earned renown throughout the country for its high quality hay tarps and factory dividers. However, we also offer other useful products for the poultry industry. Some of our most popular offerings include:
- Brooder Curtains: These fully welded items come in a range of sizes. A two-part curtain enables farmers to keep the top section in place for acting as an air-control baffle. These poultry curtains also feature access doors, reinforced feeder & drink-line exits, lifting sleeves etc.
- Cool Cell Covers: These specialised zipper covers restrict the airflow in cooler months. This helps in maintaining peak production levels.
- Thermal Fabrics: Ideal for providing extra insulation in shelter covers, you could use these as side blinds, fan covers etc.

If you’re growing hay in your fields, then you need to ensure that you have the best storage facilities. If left exposed to the elements, moisture could start accumulating. For instance, rain could dampen your hay, resulting in the growth of fungus. This is why farmers need to keep their hay safe from the snow and the rain. In addition, they need to provide adequate protection from the wind as well.
To help farmers protect their hay from the elements, Polytex offers a comprehensive solution at cost effective rates. Our hay tarps offer ample protection from harsh weather conditions. It is worth noting that hay tarps are quite different from the regular tarps that people typically use. Designed for long-term outdoor use, these tarps are waterproof and mildew resistant. Thus, they can keep your produce free from moisture and mildew, while preventing any damage that moisture and moulds can cause. Moreover, the material we use for making these tarps also provides protection from the ultraviolet rays of the sun.
Many farmers rely on our polytarps and shelter covers for covering their bales of hay. This minimises, if not eliminates, the need to spend money in constructing temporary or permanent shelters for the hay. Once you construct a permanent structure, you narrow your choices. For instance, you could find yourself having to use the same structure in the following season, even though you require the structure in another spot in your fields.
By using polyethylene bunker tarps, you can prevent your hay from rotting because of moisture and dampness. In addition, you can prevent insects from consuming the hay too. Farmers typically use the following products for keeping their hay secure.
- The Sleeved Hay Tarp: This tarp minimises wind damage by securing the covers to the larger haystack. It features a welded sleeve edge, into which farmers insert a one-inch metallic pipe to protect the tarp against wind flaps.
- The Ratch-e-Tarp: Renowned throughout Australia, this tarp offers the best protection for your hay.
