They are made of durable metal
A bale door is an essential part of a baler, preventing the operator from over-filling the chamber. It also helps keep the bale clean and allows the processor to eject an oversize bale without making another one. It is also useful when the baler is working with a varying supply of material. It is located near the ejection module, and clamps the first part of the bale as it is being banded and ejected. It is made of durable metal that resists the elements and extreme weather conditions.
Windows, doors and other openings in straw bale walls generally need to be set within a frame that is designed to withstand compression loads – these frames are often called bucks. They may be anchored in the bales with stakes of wood (1x2x36), rebar (#3 or #4) or bamboo that penetrate at least two bales – a process known as corsetting the bales.
Alternatively, they can be held in place with chicken wire that is tied into the walls, though builders have moved away from this method in many areas. Regardless of the pinning method used, all wall openings in straw bales need to be precompressed before taking structural loads.

They are easy to install
Adding a door to a bale wall is an easy way to create a quality ventilation system in your barn. This option is especially useful when you have a small livestock herd and need to control the amount of heat or cold that enters your barn. It also allows your animals a chance to see outside and socialize with each other.
The first step in installing a bale door is to make the frame. To do this, cut two 1”x 4”s in half to fit the dimension of the frame. Then, glue and screw these pieces to the boards that make up the panel. This will help the door resist sagging or twisting.
Window and door bucks must be spaced from wall corners by the width of one bale to avoid damage to the strawbale walls. These openings are often subject to rain water intrusion, which can cause rotting and mold. To prevent this, it is recommended that a layer of 6 mil plastic be draped over the entire surface of the bale wall on which the window or door buck will rest. This will also protect the buck from sagging, and prevent moisture from seeping into the bale wall. The plastic should extend down the side of the wall to the foundation and down the inside of the wall to the floor.
