Challenges and solutions

When designing the farm shed's grain storage area, our client needed a 16m opening and a 6.5m opening height. For this, we used an upgraded header beam so an intermediate post could be removed. The header beam was engineered to take the weight of four large top-hung sliding doors used to seal the grain compartment. 

To ensure ease of sliding and minimum ongoing maintenance on the sliding doors, we provided our client with a custom continuous ground guide system. This also creates a better seal to reduce dust ingress into the grain storage section. 

We designed 2m high precast walls for three walls in the grain area. Above this, we clad the walls internally to remove ledges that grain dust would build up on over time.
