Why a Fabric-Covered Building Is Your Perfect Grain Storage Solution

Your grain storage isn’t just a structure. It’s an investment – and it’s a big one. You need a trusted partner – one who provides valuable expertise, knows your industry, and understands how you work. One whose entire approach is Built Around You.

As you’re considering the best option for your grain storage building needs, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get about grain storage and how Accu-Steel can help.

1. How does an Accu-Steel building provide the best environment for grain storage?

Grain should be stored in a well-ventilated building so it stays dry. If your grain is stored in a building that is not well ventilated, it can spoil or form hot spots, causing the grain to “cook” or even be hot enough to start a fire.

Accu-Steel fabric buildings are specifically designed with the challenges of grain storage in mind. Our grain storage structures offer open end walls or wall vents to provide maximum ventilation for your grain, while still protecting it from the elements. Soffit ventilation allows fresh air to enter the building from both sides, pushing hot air out through peak vents that reduce moisture in the building. Additional wall anchorage supports the grain force pushing on the walls. When you lose less grain to spoilage, you reduce your overall cost per bushel – which goes straight to your bottom line.

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-covered buildings provide, there is little to no maintenance required. Fabric-covered buildings are consistently 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 storage buildings allow for extremely easy access to your grain, and adding a conveyor allows you to efficiently fill your building. Our wide-open interiors have no obstructing beams, so your equipment can easily pass through. Fabric buildings allow for greater storage capacity, excellent maneuverability, and easy access to inventory so you can monitor your grain conditions more effectively.

4. How much grain will I be able to store?

How much grain do you want to store? Accu-Steel provides a variety of building profiles to fit your space and your storage needs. And if those needs change, our fabric-covered buildings can easily be expanded. 

5. Will my grain storage building be able to withstand intense weather conditions?

When you choose an Accu-Steel fabric-covered building for grain storage, you’re choosing a building that is engineered to withstand even the toughest weather conditions. Our strong steel frames are galvanized to withstand corrosion, and our fabric cover is the strongest tensile fabric on the market. Our buildings are engineered to hold up to heavy wind and snow conditions and are covered with a 20-year warranty.
