Roof System

STIFFENED BIN ROOF SYSTEM

BROAD ROOF DECKS

The stiffened series of bins has broad roof decks with large diameter openings and a variety of peak loads available to meet customer needs.

 

 

STIFF-roof1

ROOF DESIGNED WITH
UNIQUE FEATURES

The roof panels are rigidized between the extra tall 3-1/2" high ribs and attached at the eave with a continuous angle iron and rib brackets giving added strength against wind.

Wall System

UNIQUELY DESIGNED WALL SYSTEMS

STURDY, LONG LASTING WALL SYSTEM

The flat sided (trapezoidal) configuration with "built-in" wind bands, offered as a standard design feature with inside stiffened Behlen bins, provides greater strength and rigidity to resist the forces exerted by side draw and wind loads. This built-in strength eliminates the need to add bolt-on wind pipes.

STIFF-wall1

 

SUPERIOR PANEL STRENGTH

The vertical seam lines have a large overlap with 4 or 5 rows of bolts. This, combined with our rigid anchor bracket and roll formed base angle, will hold your grain in place and ready for market.

STIFF-wall2

 

STIFFENERS WITH EXCEPTIONAL LOAD CARRYING CAPABILITIES

The Behlen hat-shaped stiffeners provide superior resistance to grain loads. Each stiffener is formed from a single piece of steel up to 5/16” thick. This use of thick, solid steel eliminates the need to laminate stiffener material. Each of the stiffeners supports the next with a load bearing plate to ensure positive load transfer into the concrete foundation.

These heavy duty stiffeners give Behlen bins the ability to be cleaned with a single pass sweeping operation without the use of additional reinforcement.

PRE-PUNCHED ROOF VENT OPENING

A pre-punched opening in the roof panel has a raised lip for improved weather protection.

img35

LOW PROFILE ROOF VENT

Behlen exclusive low profile roof vents set down close to the roof panel to reduce the potential for wind damage. Excellent choice in port facilities or high wind lodations. Available in 3.13 sq. ft. openings, reducing the number of vents.

TYPICAL GRAIN DENSITIES:

  • Wheat approximately 800 kg/m3 (50 lb/ft3)
  • Corn approximately 720 kg/m3 (45 lb/ft3)
  • Rice approximately 580 kg/m3 (36 lb/ft3)

* Capacities based on bin filled to eave with grain peaked in roof area at 28 degree slope. Bushels based on 1.25 cubic ft./bu. Metric ton calculations assume wheat at 800 kb/cubic meter; corn at 720 kg/cubic meter and rice at 580 kg/cubic meters. All maximum capacities include a 6% compaction allowances as determined by the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) standard S413.
