The lowest initial investment and annual fixed cost of any silage storage system
The Benefits of Bunker Silo Storage:
We would like to thank you for your interest in our precast concrete Bunker Silos. Our company has been building Bunker Silos for over 35 years.
We offer two heights, 8 ½ and 12 high. Our 8 ½ high walls come in two styles. The L-Panels are used for the outside walls and they are bolted together. The 8 ½ T-Panels can be used for an outside wall or an inside wall. Our 12 high walls are all T-Panels which can be used for an outside wall or an inside wall. The 12 high walls are bolted together with the bolts being recessed so there would be no damage to your equipment, (an exclusive feature of Als Concrete Products). We have radius corners at the top of all our Bunker Silo walls to eliminate the chance of tearing the plastic cover when the Bunker Walls are wrapped. Also our 12 high walls are constructed of solid concrete (no voids).
our manufacturing process, we are able to achieve strengths of 7500
P.S.I. using self consolidated concrete. The additive we use reduces
the amount of water to make the concrete flowable. We also use a grade
rebar for our primary reinforcing and we use structure fibers for
our secondary reinforcing.

Attached are recommendations for site
preparation. If you would like any more information, please
feel free to call.
From our experience of installing bunker Silos for over 35 years, there should be a minimum of 1/2 % to 2% slope on the Bunker site. We recommend using a 1" to 2" diameter screen rock or gravel under each wall approximately 8" thick covering a 4" tile line with a gravity outlet.
The reason for this is to keep the soil dry under the wall for better stability and to keep excess moisture and rain water out of the feed so you will be able to achieve a higher quality of feed.
If you do not use the drain tile we still recommend an 8" compacted gravel base under each wall for stability. This could vary according to soil conditions.
The site should be rough graded to 1" of final grade. When we come to erect the walls, our crew will do the final grading. The customer will have to furnish AL's Concrete Products, Inc with a skid loader and fine gravel (3/8" or less) to do the final grading. Click here for printable site preparation document
