Covertan 60 (60gsm)

Designed to protect plants in containers or saplings Covertan 60 is the thicker and stronger fleece in our range. Its heavy weight (60 g / m²) makes it a very effective windbreak that protects plants exposed and maintains good thermicity. It can be used in extreme climatic conditions.

Covertan 60 (60gsm)

Covertan 60 is very thick and durable and can with sufficient strength for use on stands or poles. It is designed to better withstand the stresses caused by tree stems and "woody" plants when laid directly on the crop. Although heavy weight 
(60g / m²), it retains the permeability properties created by a nonwoven material

Its porous structure allows the exchange of air and water needed for good plant growth and maintenance of a good sanitary conditions. Despite its thickness, light transmission is 65% allowing plant photosynthesis to continue.

An air permeable structure ensures good air exchange through the cover, which reduces temperature fluctuations and protects against temperature spikes.

The water permeability of Covertan and specifically a low hydrostatic head, allow a good flow of water from rain and irrigation to reach the protected plant.

All our fleece are Z folded, which makes the installation quick and easy.

Applications:

  • Open fields

Crop Types:

  • Ornamentals

Thermal Effect

Thermal Effect ►

Temperature management is critical in controling plant growth. Covertan fleece forms part of a temperature management strategy.

Earliness, Yield & Uniformity

Earliness, Yield & Uniformity ►

Selecting the correct crop cover and using it effectively can significantly improve the economics of a harvest. Covertan has been proven to do this for over 20 years. 

Climatic Protection

Climatic Protection ►

Plants can be damaged by elements such as heavy rain and wind  drying. Crop cover forms a protective layer that can reduce this.

Pest Protection

Pest Protection ►

Preventing the pest reaching the crop is an effective method of reducing crop loss and damage. Covertans breathable structure creates a permeable barrier.

Robustness and Strength

Robustness and Strength ►

Once covered by fleece, the durability of the materials help ensure the longer term protection. Formulated for exposed applications, Covertan is extremely robust.

Light Transmission

Light Transmission ►

Light drives plant growth. Covertan crop cover has a structure that balences openness with the protection required for crops.

Permeability to Air and Water

Permeability to Air and Water ►

Moisture and air balance are major factors in robust plant growth. Covertan crop cover has a structure that balances openness with the protection required for crops.

Durability / UV stabilisation

Durability / UV stabilisation ►

Sunlight is an aggressive degrador of most materials. To overcome this, Covertan is specially formulated with stabilizers that reduce this impact and give targeted exposure life.

Recyclability

Recyclability ►

Covertan is made from a single polymer - polypropylene, which is recyclable. This even includes the bonding used in wide width products. 

Transport Optimisation

Transport Optimisation ►

Transport optimisation, multiple roll widths.

There is no standard field and to create optimal covering Covertan is available in both standard sizes for the most common widths, and  "tailor-made"sizes from 1 to 28 m wide. Rolls are produced with a Z fold for ease of opening and the standard  2.40 m width, fitting within a  truck for easy handling and transport.
