Sliding Roof Fertiliser Shed - Walebing, WA

Located in the Moora region, the client runs a mixed farming operation of wheat, sheep and cattle. In late 2010 it was decided a shed for fertiliser and grain storage was required on the property. A L-block bunker with a sliding roof design was favoured so the roof could be pushed back out the way allowing semi tippers to unload without the need for a portable elevator conveyor to do so. Wheatbelt Steel in partnership with local concrete company (Dallcon) was commissioned to design, fabricate and install a shed of which met the client requirements.

WHEATBELT STEEL’S ANSWER

The shed design was (18m x 10m x 5.5m) with a fully retractable sliding roof mounted to the top of the concrete 2.3m high L-block bunker layout. The roof rail system involved parallel rails extending behind the concrete bunker and suspended by supporting columns. The heavy duty rollers ensure the easy operation of sliding roof and roof can be locked in the open or closed position.

POPULAR CASE STUDIES

“I had seen the sliding roof concept before and liked the idea as it eliminates towing a conveyor out every time you get a delivery of fertiliser and it’s also handy extra storage for grain. There doesn't seem to be too many people that make them but through the local concrete mob (Dallcon) I discovered Wheatbelt Steel did. They worked in with Dallcon, who did the concrete, and delivered a great result. Overall a top product and works well!”
