Fumigation Covers

Typically fumigation covers are quite large but we can make any size to suit your needs. We have made fumigation covers for containers 20m x 15m as well as large fumigation covers for large log stacks up to 100m x 25m. We have a large range of colours and any logos or branding can be added as required. We can make the fumigation covers with or without eyelets and ropes depending on your requirements, and we also manufacture the sand bags to seal the covers to the ground once goods are covered.

Our Range of Fumigation Covers

We typically use Polyethylene or polypropylene with a weight of 285gsm. This is because the fumigation covers are generally very large so this material provides a durable yet manageable cover.

Alternatively we can manufacture the covers from Ripstop PVC 680gsm but due to the heavier weight these are only used for smaller covers as they simply become too heavy and extremely difficult to use.

Reusable – once the covers have been used to fumigate goods they can be used multiple times. The fumigant becomes inactive and the covers are safe for reuse.

The alternative to Fumigation covers is fumigation warehouses/sheds that must be sealed. These have huge cost implications and means you have to take your goods to the site unlike fumigation covers that can be used wherever the goods are being stored.

Top Tips / Care & Maintenance

Once the covers have been used it is important to roll the cover off the goods taking care not to rip them on any sharp edges. The fumigation covers can be stored outside if necessary but ensure that they are rolled tightly and secure edges so no wind damage occurs.

Background Information

Fumigation Covers are used to drape over goods before fumigation, such as logs, timber, containers or fruit etc. They can even be used to fumigate large vessels. They are generally made of a polyethylene material and are both airtight and waterproof. The fumigation covers need to be sealed so the fumigant can be pumped in. Eyelets can be added to tie the covers down or the fumigation covers can be used in conjunction with sandbags to weigh down the edges.
