Precast concrete grain walling is cost-effective and durable retaining wall system, which can be combined with other precast products to create flexible cereal crop storage areas. Once installed and sealed, precast grain walls will ensure that you grain store will protect your crop from vermin and the elements. Managing the moisture in your grain storage building is an essential part of maximising the return on your yield.
Precast Grain Walls
The most cost-effective and common precast product used for constructing concrete grain walling are prestressed concrete panels. The panels are available in a range of thicknesses and are quick and easy to install to the steel columns in your building. However, the steel frame in your grain store must be capable of taking the material load from the crops. Prestressed concrete panels for agricultural buildings are available in three thickness when being used as a retaining wall and have a tongue and groove profile;
There are three standard heights in the concrete wall panels range, however the panels beds can be altered to cast a panel of any height from 500mm:
The lengths of concrete panels are manufactured to suit specific wall dimensions, up to 7m. The length and thickness of the prestressed panels will depend on the retained height of the crops being stored.
Precast Retaining Walls
If your structure is not designed for retaining material, then an independent retaining wall system, such as the bolt-down or cast-in retaining wall is an excellent alternative. The bolt down walls are available in heights up to 3.75m, the cast-in walls up to 5m high for the heavy duty version.
Free Standing Concrete Grain Walling
If crop separation is required in the building, then our freestanding retaining walls and interlocking concrete blocks can be installed to create dividing walls. Mastic can be applied to joints between the precast units to achieve weatherproof seals and also to prevent cross-contamination of different crops.
