CHALLENGE: Curry Industries Poly-Fastener product was already popular in the greenhouse and shelter market but was also being adopted organically by those in the ag-business using large grain and silage bags. Eventually, word came back that while the seal was exactly what users hoped it would be, the method of using the Poly-Fastener in such a way was difficult. Customers wanted a solution.
CURRY INNOVATION: The Grain Bag Zipper was created. A rolling assembly used to guide the insert strip made bag-sealing a snap. The new system was designed to clamp the ends of channel and poly bag with anchoring stakes while the roller assembly moved freely along the edge underneath the channel.
RESULT: The success of the Grain Bag Zipper was clear. Named “best invention” at Manitoba’s Ag-Days the Curry innovation has gone on to make the process of sealing (and re-sealing) large-scale grain and silage bags easier than ever.
