Barton Fabrications, the UK’s largest aluminium silo manufacturer, has recently installed several silos at an environmentally sensitive site in England.
Installed at a food processing site, the silos have been designed to keep within the factory roof line and to be visually sympathetic to the local countryside. The 21 metres high silos have a capacity of 90 tons and are all fitted with maintenance free beige coloured cladding.
Commenting on the success of the silo design and installation Mark Barton, Managing Director, of Barton Fabrications said:
“The client was very conscious of their rural setting and wanted to ensure that the new storage silos were in keeping with the local area. Our environmentally sensitive design met this challenge, giving the required storage capacity, whilst harmonising with the rural landscape.”
The Barton half penthouse design supplied to the customer provides safer working conditions at the top of the silos and double doors at the bottom allow full access to the base. In addition to an environmental design, the silos are also fitted with load cells and a hygienic skirt, which prevents rodents and insects entering via the base.
