Project Description

Quality and strength engineered at every step.

Design-full-door1Full opening door in sidewall provides full and easy access regardless of door option selected. Both 1R and 2R options available.

Design-door-lockOuter door cover with bar lock firmly holds door cover closed, even in challenging weather conditions.

comm-bin-bolts

Grade 8.2 bin bolts are used throughout to ensure strength and stability. Roofs use 5/16″ (0.79 cm) bolts and sidewalls use 3/8″ (0.95 cm) bolts.

comm-top-quality-fastenerTop-quality fasteners feature JS1000 plating system, SAE Grade 8.2 for maximum shear capacity as well as industry standard washers to seal the bolt to the sidewall.

MFS/Stormor bin floors are available in a wide variety of styles to match the application, storage system and customer preference. Long-lasting galvanized construction coupled with state-of-the-art design and manufacturing makes for a bin floor that stands up to use and abuse under the most challenging conditions. Floors can be constructed in any diameter, which makes an MFS/Stormor floor available on our bins— plus any other brand of bin.

floor-16gauge16-Gauge Floor Option is the heaviest specification available in the industry. MFS/Stormor also offers the widest variety of gauges in the industry—providing even more assurance that the construction matches the challenge.

floor-corrugationBuilt-in crown on planks prevents sagging and provides additional strength. Slotted design offers strength and economy.

floor-corrugationBuilt-in corrugation on planks increases strength and rigidity. Round perforation (0.093″) design is smooth and easy to sweep.

floor-sm-peforationSmall perforation (0.050″) floor planks are ideal for use in storing small grains such as canola. Smooth surface facilitates easy clean-out.

MFS/Stormor supports are available in either galvanized or welded styles, providing a choice for customers. Supports come in multiple heights to accommodate different sizes of bin unloading systems and fan transitions for optimum performance.

Design-locking-tabsLocking tabs on galvanized supports lock into place during assembly.

Design-powder-coatedPowder-coated welded design resists rust and lasts longer than non-painted supports. Facilitates easy installation.

Bin flashing is an underappreciated but critical component of bin construction. At MFS/Stormor we take great care in designing and manufacturing flashing that is strong and durable, regardless of the gauge you choose for your flooring system.

Design-flashingChoice of high back or low back flashing works for both new bin installation or retrofits.

Design-multirib-flashingMulti-rib design adds strength and durability. Also provides traction for sweep augers.

The Contractor’s Choice

  • Every floor plank is labeled for easy identification in the field
  • Floor planks are precisely bundled to enable building from the stack
  • On-side shipment makes parts easier to handle and reduces damage during loading/unloading
  • Multiple bundles on larger systems make for easier loading and unloading
  • Single piece option for larger bins can make on-site construction easier
  • One-man installation of flashing possible thanks to use of nuts on the inside of the bin
  • Easy-to-use construction guide simplifies the process— especially for first-time installers
  • Powder-coated welded supports resist rust and enhance appearance upon delivery at job-site
