Steel framed grain stores from Magna Buildings.
Grain and Crop Stores
Grain & crop stores are subject to large horizontal forces due to the angle of repose of the grain. The lower the angle of repose the higher the horizontal loading.
MAGNA BUILDINGS Ltd
Grain stores.

Our steel framed grain store buildings are structurally analysed to size the main steel
members but, just as importantly, to ensure the correct detailing of the connections.
Bracing and eaves ties require particular attention.

23m span x 8 no. 6.1m bays with 3m high concrete.
As well as supplying the superstructure we can also construct the reinforced concrete floor slab with or without "below floor" ducting.

We supply electric or manual roller shutter doors. Doors can be fixed externally with a weather hood or fixed on the inside of the building. A separate personnel door is recommended. Doors are supplied with brush strips at the top and compressible rubber seals along the bottom runner to deter vermin.

We supply pre-cast concrete wall panels designed for grain loading. Usually these panels span horizontally (typically 6.1 bay centres).
The panels are supplied 0.6m, 1.0m, 1.2m or 1.5m wide and are laid above each other to acheive the required height.
Along the top of the panels we supply a grain overspill flashing which also closes the gap between the top of the panel and the side sheeting.
