This is perfect for crop storage and removes the need for re-handling. 

Innovative structural steel crop storage

As well as installation of wind tunnels and centrifugal/axial fans if required. Just get in touch to discuss your individual crop drying and crop storage requirements.

Choosing a steel structure building will ensure your crop storage facility is built to last. Steel is a sustainable option for a cost-effective and long-term solution. Steel is recyclable, yet strong and durable. Your crop will be kept secure, watertight and protected from the elements with a sturdy structure and insulated steel cladding sheets.

Potato Box Suction Walls

In recent years, box potato box suction walls have gained vast popularity. The air distribution is improved drastically by matching the openings in the potato box suction walls to the air volume. This allows the air pattern to be much more evenly distributed throughout the store, resulting in more efficient crop drying & crop storage.

Unique air distributing design for crop storage

The potato box suction walls that Timmins manufacture in-house are unique, and are designed within the building fabric itself. They consist of an internal galvanised frame for increased structural strength, as well as improved access.

Floor Duct System

If you are storing bulk root crops, a floor duct system may be better suited to your requirements. The unique system that Timmins manufactures consists of precast and cast in-situ concrete, with keruing top boards for increased longevity.

The floor duct systems Timmins design and manufacture are easy to maintain as we understand the time constraints that farmers are under.
