FRAME

Originally established as a general engineering company in Ozzano dell’ Emilia, near Bologna (Italy) FRAME entered the corrugated silo market in the mid 1990’s.

The ability to fulfill clients varied needs, from the preparation of the initial offer, according to the specific requirements of the client, submission of detailed drawings, even analysis of soil tests to supervision of the erection of the silos if required, have allowed FRAME to become one of Europe’s largest & respected manufacturers of metallic silos.

FRAME is now firmly established as one of Europe’s largest designers, manufacturers & suppliers of all types of corrugated steel silos for commercial & agricultural applications as well as the ancillary products such as catwalks, ladders, platforms, aeration & temperature sensing systems, towers, & in certain markets, if specifically requested, where necessary, FRAME can supply mechanical handling, cleaning, weighing, & bagging equipment.

Over the past almost 30 years, FRAME has supplied silos throughout the world & is now a preferred supplier to many of Europe’s leading manufacturers of grain processing equipment as well as some of the most respected engineering companies in Europe & their locally based agents.

Outstanding Features of Frame Silos

The cylinder is constructed from galvanized corrugated steel sheets with profiled external galvanized vertical stiffeners. All components are manufactured using highly automated techniques, ensuring fast & accurate production.

The sidewall sheets and the stiffeners of the bin are manufactured from 0.8mm through to 3.5mm galvanized, (minimum 450 g/m2 steel with a tensile strength up to 420 N/mm2 & a yield stress up to 350 N/mm2). When required, higher steel grade material & galvanization up to 600g/m2 can be offered to suit specific requirements.

Where necessary laminated sheets are used for greater strength.

The profiled stiffeners carry the vertical load of the silo to the base.

The stiffeners feature strong bolted splice joint plates with a large cross sectional area, critical elements in stiffener design.

Sidewall sheets are assembled with FRAME high strength grade 8.8 bolts, guaranteed against corrosion with a spun galvanized coating.

Rubber coated washers with ‘strip’ sealant for both horizontal & vertical joints ensure a perfect seal between sidewall sheets & fixings.

Suitable for all free flowing cereals including wheat, maize, barley, rape seed, soya beans, rice, etc.

FRAME offer both the FP & FC range of silos according to ASAE/ ANSI, DIN or EUROCODE design standards, taking into account the local wind, seismic & snow load requirement to ensure a perfect fit with the specific environment condition and to achieve the longest silo & accessories lifetime.

Foundation drawings, as well as base load and plant design facilities can be provided. A very wide range of accessories for the FP & FC range of silos are offered.
