Perfomer Tarpaulin

It pays to protect your bales, round or square, hay or straw

 

Performer, well proven, the successfully cover for your bales

 

  • A well maintained Performer tarp you should expect an average life of 5 years
  • We regularly see tarps lasting 7-8 years plus
  • A tight tarp is a happy tarp that will stay in place in severe wind
  • Easy maintenance, just pull down with a full weight pull on the rope through our unique "Super Cinch" to tighten, a full weight pull will apply a 250 -300 pound pressure, two persons can pull can apply 400 pound pressure, you will not damage a Performer Tarp
  • Tighten every few days the first 10-14 days as the stack settles, then tighten regularly every 2-3 weeks and before and after forecast heavy winds
  • Any tarp that is not tight whatever the grade of material will damage in the wind
  • Performer tarps are easy to maintain and keep tight
  • Tie-down ropes should be tightened like guitar strings; this is only achievable with our unique "Super Cinch" tie down system
  • No other tarp on the market will stay secure with regular maintenance like the Performer Tarp

 

 

With thanks for pictures from Mr Stephen Jones. Maltings Farm. Brisley, Norfolk, who purchased 2 x P2554sq tarps in 2013 and a further 2 x P2554Sq taps in 2015, and sent us these 3 pictures on Aug 15th 2016

Round bale stacks:

Contact PFC before stacking round bales, you will require the under-ropes or strapping prior to constructing your stack, round bale have not got stings to connect too.

 

Your stack tarpaulin is only as strong as your anchor point, ropes or our under-strapping under each row of bales from one side to the other is the only secure anchor

 

Always remember to peak the stack, sheds water, tighter tarp, longer tarp life

The Performer range of bale tarpaulins are available in widths from 4.2metres (14 ft) up to 22metres (72ft) and can cover stacks up to 17metres (56ft) wide. Sheets are available in lengths of 14.3m (47ft) up to 16.2m (53ft). The tarpaulin itself is manufactured from high strength, UV treated poly-weave fabric with 7-8 years UV protection

 

Each sheet comes as standard with extra strength ropes, that use a unique Super Cinch and J-Hook, and this enables the sheet to be quickly and tightly secured.

Large square bales the J-Hook attaches to the string and the rope feeds back through the Super Cinch for a simple securing mechanism that is robust and secure.  With round bales ropes or under-strapping (seat belt style webbing) can be supplied, which is placed under the bales and is used to anchor the tarp

 

In addition, incorporated into the hem of each tarpaulin are plastic pipe inserts, designed to keep the sheet rigid, and for the anchor ropes to pull evenly across the full width of the sheet, but still allow it to be quickly folded back in 1.2metre (4ft) sections on itself and then re-tightened using the ‘Super Cinch’. The hem also includes a rain flap that deflects water away from the sides of the stack

 

SUPER CINCH - The Ultimate tie-down system

Each Performer bale tarpaulin utilises the unique "Super Cinch" tie-down system to ensure it is quickly and tightly secured, which will avoid the sheet flapping in the wind, the sheets are designed for a longer life span and better protection of your bales. At the end of each securing rope is a steel J-hook that anchors into a bale string on large square bales or either rope or under-strapping (webbing) laid under stack for round bales to provide a secure anchor point. The "Super Cinch" is then used to tighten the securing rope, and enables the person installing to apply up to 150Kg of pressure on each tie down point which is increased if two people install the tarpaulin
