Proactive silo inspections prevent costly product losses and potentially damaging accidents. The cost of any preventative maintenance or repairs is generally significantly lower than the potential costs of a collapse. Your conical or steel fabricated silo should be inspected at the very minimum every 5 years.

Through our sister business, Brice Baker we have both the expertise and industry knowledge to provide a full range of support services. We can manufacture corrugated galvanised sheets to fit many manufacturers silos. Composite sectional silos with external bracing can be difficult to refurbish to an acceptable standard. With the inspect and repair service now available from Franklin Hodge/Brice Baker it is possible to extend the life of any type of silo.
Product often used in silos often allow for bacterial and viral growth which can have an adverse effect on the internal panel condition, whilst due to age there may be a requirement to replace the silo in the long term, it the short, a quick, effective refurbishment can make the difference and allow full use of the silo until downtime is available to replace in its entirety, we offer both options here at FHI/Brice Baker.
