Farmers across the nation are always looking for the most innovative ways to store their grain. With so many options, how do you know which direction to go?
Since you are making a huge financial investment when it comes to grain storage, it’s important to consider several things before you make the decision on what type of building you will buy. As the leading manufacturer of fabric buildings in the USA, we believe that fabric is the best solution for every grain storage operation.
Here are some questions to ask about grain storage buildings, and why we believe that fabric buildings are the perfect solution:
1. What is the best atmosphere for my grain?
Your grain needs to be stored in a well-ventilated building in order to keep it dry. If your grain is stored in a building that is not well ventilated, it can spoil or form hot spots that can cause the grain to “cook” or even be hot enough to start a fire.
Accu-Steel fabric buildings offer open end walls or wall vents to provide maximum ventilation for your grain storage, while still protecting it from the elements. Soffit ventilation will allow fresh air to enter the entire building from both sides, pushing hot air out of the building through peak vents reducing the moisture in the building.
2. How much time and money will it take to maintain my grain storage building?
With the natural ventilation, hot-dip galvanized steel, and extremely durable cover that our fabric buildings provide, there is little to no maintenance required. Fabric buildings are one of the easiest types of buildings to maintain.
3. Will I be able to easily access my grain?
Unlike traditional dome or metal storage buildings, fabric buildings allow for extremely easy access to your grain and adding a conveyor allows you to efficiently fill your building. With our wide-open interiors with no obstructing beams, your equipment can easily pass through. Fabric buildings allow for greater storage capacity, excellent maneuverability, and easy access to inventory. You will be able to monitor your grain conditions more effectively with a fabric grain storage building.
4. How much grain will I be able to store?
Well, how much do you want to store? Accu-Steel provides a wide variety of building profiles to fit your space and your needs. Our fabric buildings offer excellent clear span interiors with no beams to obstruct movement or minimize storage. They also offer the most cost-effective option for expansion, thanks to our individual bay Keder cover system!
