[content] => <h2>All roof panels are superior galvanised steel and guaranteed up to 20 years!</h2> <p><img style="margin: 10px; float: right;" src="assets/site/images/Agri/ProductImages/GrainStorage/CommercialBins/peak-rings.jpg" alt="" width="40%" />Roof panels are of Aluzince AZ 185 and feature an interlocking "J" rib design for outstanding strength and reduced assembly time. Coloured polyester coating available on request.</p> <p>With its 30° pitch, our new roof comes standard with high peak load capacities and is designed to support the additional loads imposed by conveyors, temperature cables or heavier snow loads for your geographic location. In addition, its design meets the anti-explosion criteria.</p> <p>Additional roof vents may be added depending on aeration requirements.</p> <hr /> <h3>Sidewall Sheets</h3> <p><img style="margin: 10px; float: left;" src="assets/site/images/Agri/ProductImages/GrainStorage/CommercialBins/w-stiffeners.jpg" alt="" width="33%" />The 1077 mm sidewall height requires significantly fewer rings, seams and connection stiffeners. When combined with our exclusive "W" stiffener, bins offer unsurpassed strength while reducing costly assembly time.</p> <p>The corrugated steel sidewalls are created from high quality steel grade S350GD + Z according to EN 10326, Sendzimir galvanizing Z 450 ensures greater corrosion resistance and a longer life. Sidewall sheets are laminated together to provide greater strength on larger bins.</p> <p>The 120 X 11 mm profile of the shallow form corrugated sheets is wider than that of our closest competitor, thus minimizing the buid-up of residual grain on the silo wall during unloading.</p> <p> The exclusive exterior “W” stiffener is stronger than the closest competing stiffener. Designed to support the vertical load, the unique “W” staggered stiffener system provides supplemental strength and fully supports overhead catwalks and conveyors.</p> <p>Hot-dip: steel grade 8.8, integrated seal washers.</p> <hr /> <h3>Safety &amp; Catwalks</h3> <p><img style="margin: 10px; float: right;" src="assets/site/images/Agri/ProductImages/GrainHandling/Conveyors/conveyors-cover.jpg" alt="" width="25%" />Open galvanized catwalks for conveyors up to 300 t/h are offered as standard.</p> <p>Walkways with gratings - 19 mm open area.</p> <p>Safety aluminium ladders with galvanized safety hoops, rest platforms with safety handrails, complying with EN ISO 14122.</p> <p><img style="float: left; margin: 10px;" src="assets/site/images/Agri/ProductImages/GrainStorage/CommercialBins/ADM-Frankfort-350.jpg" alt="" width="25%" />Eaves platform for access to the roof inspection hatch.</p> <p>Consisting of internal reinforced door to support grain loads and <span style="font-size: 1.1rem;">weatherproof external door.</span></p> <hr /> <p> </p> [richtext] => 1 [template] => 38 [menuindex] => 0 [searchable] => 1 [cacheable] => 1 [createdby] => 3 [createdon] => 1473446434 [editedby] => 27 [editedon] => 1479887534 [deleted] => 0 [deletedon] => 0 [deletedby] => 0 [publishedon] => 1427212680 [publishedby] => 2 [menutitle] => CBCE Range – Flat Bottom Storage Silo [donthit] => 0 [privateweb] => 0 [privatemgr] => 0 [content_dispo] => 0 [hidemenu] => 0 [class_key] => modDocument [context_key] => UK [content_type] => 1 [uri] => commercial-bins [uri_override] => 1 [hide_children_in_tree] => 0 [show_in_tree] => 1 [properties] => Array ( [stercseo] => Array ( [index] => 1 [follow] => 1 [sitemap] => 1 [priority] => 0.5 [changefreq] => [urls] => ) ) [tv.CHA-SectionImage] => assets/site/images/Agri/Project Photos/Miller, SD - CB30-23 X 4 and CB20-21.JPG [idx] => 1 [link] => ) Array ( [id] => 883 [type] => document [contentType] => text/html [pagetitle] => CIE - Flat Bottom Storage Silo [longtitle] => Chief Flat Bottom Storage - CIE Range [description] => Look to Chief CIE Range Flat Bottom Storage Silos for durable grain storage systems and proven design experience that will provide you value well beyond the purchase!
