Grain and Crop Storage
Grain and Crop Storage With Prestressed Concrete Vertical Panels
FP McCann’s Vertical Cantilever Panels are cast in to position using cradles prior to construction of the floor slab. Panels sit together cleanly with vertical tongue and groove edges sealed together. Vertical Cantilevers have the added advantage of being used when the steel frame is not able to support the panels and
have 90° floor to wall joints.
The versatility of FP McCann Horizontal Panels make them ideal for creating flexible storage bays of all sizes with a range of thicknesses (120mm, 160mm & 200mm). Our prestressing process provides enormous strength over a precast panel making our panels ideal for securely containing grain and other crops. Our controlled factory engineering allows us to work with you to specify an affordable solution to meet your requirements. Horizontal panels typically fix to the steel frame of the building and do not require foundation or casting into position.
Our Rocket Walls are high quality, freestanding, precast concrete units. They are designed to be sited on an existing concrete floor slab or foundation and, for improved site safety and maximum efficiency, are bolted down using fixing bolts to prevent movement. It is this uniqueness that makes them suitable for a variety of uses. Our Rocket Wall precast unit is an alternative to panels for storing grain and other granular materials. These units come in three heights, 2.4m, 3m and 4m and are all 1.25m wide. After the grain has been removed, Rocket Walls can be re-sited with relative ease, giving the option to reuse the storage area for alternative purposes.
The Rocket Wall units can support up to 16kN/m3 and can be loaded from both sides, making them a versatile, fast and effective storage solution. Alternatively, they can be used to create a dividing wall within a shed to increase storage options.
