Grain Systems Inc’s (GSI) 40 series bins are now available with four-inch corrugation. The bins, offered in 2.66-inch corrugation since their launch in 2013, still use the optional Z-Tek Roof System, but are designed to be built taller, offering capacities up to 282 000 bushels.
“We now have a much more comprehensive bin offering along with additional features, such as 2-ring walk-through doors,” said Greg Trame, GSI global product manager for storage, in a release.
The optional Z-Tek Roof System, aaptly named for the z-shaped rafters and purlins, maximizes strength while minimizing rotational torsion. The increases in peak and snow load capacities mean the roof system can handle up to 50 000 pounds.
