The method of construction of a fibreglass silo is very important.
The techniques and processes used by our supplier result in a product of the highest quality.
Preformed in an internal mould, the manufacturing process for the main body section creates a smooth, external painted finish.
The techniques used include matting, rolling and resin application as well as fibreglass spraying.
This produces a layering effect which gives the silo greater thickness and, consequently, greater strength.
A single waterproof horizontal seam joins the main body and the cone. Then the silo is fitted with fully galvanized steel legs, which act as fill and exhaust pipe.
There are strong bracing supports between the legs and the collar of the silo giving maximum stability.
By curving the pneumatic fill-pipe, we can avoid damage to the feed during filling.
Finally, the body is finished in white or you can have your silo in attractive British racing green, which can be personalised to suit individual requirements.
