My apartment balcony is on the 8th floor and has railings, so my plants get devastated by constant high winds. I have been looking for something to act as a wind break but nothing has worked. Thought I’d give this a try despite it being designed for coops. It’s brilliant, very good quality and does the job well. It would be great to have more eyelets to attach it more securely to things, as the high winds do blow it around a lot. I have ad-libbed with some plastic ties.
The third time I've bought these and the best I've found in terms of durability. Clear, thick,strong, lasted 4 or 5 years outdoors before splitting in extreme winds.
Had lots of omelet products evertYthing excellent quality,the only thing I would have really liked would be a lot more holes in clear sheet,to tie to my run as it flaps a lot in the strong winds ,thanks

We ordered the largest coop and walk in run it was all very easy to put together very well explained. Then we ordered the clear wind break kit for the winter, it’s been very cosy for my four girls (Hens).
Used in several different ways: as walling on the windy side of the run, as a sloping roof over a favourite perch, as a stand alone divider in the run....these wind breaks have shown durability over several years so I'm adding to my collection!
Came online to buy more clear covers and saw you now had these, thought I'd try them. I'm very happy, they're much better than the old covers. Three go brilliantly on the top and sides of an eglu cube 3m run. Using the hook bungees I roll the sides up on dry days, this is easier than removing them. I'd recommend these. They're keeping the ground dry.
This is the 3rd cover bought. My walk-in-run is almost fully protected from the awful weather. These wind breaks are bigger and provide better coverage then the run covers. Wish I had purchased from the start of my run covering campaign.
Good idea does work well but if really windy, it needs extra poles just to support the plastic flapping in the wind, makes it more secure.
Shines a bit in the sun, but great idea to protect your girls through the cold winter months.
Used this windbreak on my WIR as the size is just perfect when fitting it horizontaly above my Classic and Go (attached from the outside). It meets up with the roof covers so gives far more protection than the tunnel covers I had utilised (no angled openings). Hope you understand my warblings.
Did just what I wanted to keep some of the dreadful rain and wind of my poor hens.
