Holz Hausen Wood Cover
The Holz Hausen is a self-supporting firewood stacking method that allows wood to dry without the need for a firewood rack or shed.
The high quality materials we use make GoRound wood covers resistant to all types of weather, ensuring a complete protection for your wood.
Two top vents allowing moisture evacuation and providing a better airflow, while a bottom mesh allows water to drain away, ensuring optimal drying.
The Holz Hausen stacking method results in much stronger wood pile structure than traditional face cords, reducing the chances of collapsing on a child or an animal.
Round wood piles allow for greater mobility of your firewood storage since it is obviously easier to move a round wood pile than a shed when you need to move it to another location
The clips that hold the top cover with the bottom mesh together are very easily accessible and allows you to get the logs you need without hassle.
Absolutely not! The Holz Hausen technique can keep wood free of mold if used in the right way. As we explain from the Firewood Storage Method page, it is important to start by choosing the right location.
For example, if the pile is on a surface that allows water to drain properly, such as asphalt, sand, gravel or some other structure (for example, one of our customers uses old wooden pallets as a base for his pile), the wood will be preserved very well. However, if the pile is mounted on organic material such as grass or soil, in that case, yes, some bottom logs may potentially carry the risk of mold, as this is how nature works.
Finally, GoRound wood covers also have a bottom mesh that allows water to drain away, ensuring optimal wood drying.
A tarp does not quite address the same issues as our GoRound wood cover for many reasons:
GoRound wood covers are designed to specifically address all of these issues.
We have deliberately designed our covers with this length for two reasons:
#1 - To ensure optimal drying of the wood.
Because two elements allow the wood to dry: the sun and the wind. If there is no air flow through the logs, they won't dry properly. So, with this design, air can easily circulate through your wood pile.
#2 - It makes it easier to access your wood.
From a functional point of view, having too much fabric is problematic, because it does not allow you to easily access your firewood all year round.
Yes, absolutely! The bottom mesh is used as a guiding permieter to properly stack your firewood and clip it with the top cover to keep it safe during high winds.
