Water silos Water is often stored in water silos. Because of our flexible production method we are able to produce the most efficient solution for you in the form of a steel silo. These silos can have a diameter of between 1 and 32 metres and a height of between 1 and 5.5 metres. Our water silos are long lasting and are easy to install. Amongst other things, the steel plates are unique because of their ability to retain their shape and because of their mechanical tensile strength. We can also apply a particularly durable Plastisol coating to the silo plates, which extends the service life of the silo to 25 years or even longer. All silos are fitted with a watertight lining, Aquatex®, which has been developed especially for water storage in the horticultural sector. Aquatex® is available in a range of types and thicknesses, which are suitable for storing rainwater (clean water) and recirculation water. To prevent the growth of algae and evaporation in a water silo, we supplie a wide range of cover options. The range also includes materials that have been specifically developed and which are suitable for storing water in countries with extreme climate conditions such as heat, cold and high UV exposure. Silo
 The silo consists of corrugated steel plates. These are hot zinc dipped and fully coated with a polyurethane coating. Silo liner The liner for this silo consists of 1 mm thick Fecatex® PVC foil for the bottom and Genatex® 850, reinforced PVC foil, for the walls. The liner has an edge with an overlap of Genatex® 850 with stainless steel rings. The liner is fixated to the silo with dralon cord.  We supply protection sheets to place in between the steel silo and the liner, for protection of the liner. This can also be used on the bottom. This liner meets the European construction guidelines for manure storage and has a KIWA certificate. The liner guarantees a waterproof system, which prevents contamination of ground water. Silo cover You can create a completely closed system by installing a cover. We offer several solutions.
Silo liners
 Material choice Under the name Aquatex®, We offer you a complete range of silo liners that has been compiled specifically for the horticultural sector. Because the use can vary, these silo liners are available in a variety of foil types and in every imaginable size: Aquatex® EX black, thicknesses 0.6 mm and 1.0 mm. A very high-quality polypropylene foil that is suitable for storing rainwater, clean water or recirculation water. Aquatex® EX is ideally suited for uses whereby high requirements are set for temperature, UV-resistance and high chemical resistance. Aquatex® PVC black, thicknesses 0.5 mm and 1.0 mm. Suitable for storing rainwater, clean water and chlorinated water up to 0.5 PPM.  Aquatex® PVC Extreme, white, thickness 0.75 mm This is a white foil that has been specially developed for export to countries in which there is high exposure to UV. The material is suitable for storing rainwater, clean water and recirculation water. It is also chlorine resistant to 3PPM. Aquatex® EPDM, black, thickness 0.75 mm. EPDM is a synthetic high-tech rubber with great elasticity and durability. Its high resistance to ozone and UV radiation as well as its excellent chemical resistance make this material perfect for storing almost all types of water for horticulture. Wall and bottom protection sheet 250 gr/m² Wall and bottom protection sheets consist of a 250 gr/m² protective cloth that is used as a protective layer between steel silo walls and the lining and between the bottom and the lining. This prevents any sharp parts from damaging the foil.
