Inflatable floats for silo roofs
Buitink Technology has developed a concept for the lifting/
floating of roof constructions, for example silos.
By using floaters the roof of a silo during construction can be
raised in simultaniously with the erection of the walls. This is an
alternative to the hoisting of the roof construction. Additional
advantage of this system: when de-flated and folded the floats can
be removed from the silo through a man hole.
An inflatable floating set is composed of two inflatable elements
linked by a sheet. The set is attached to the roof construction (on
two fixing points). To give extra stability, light weight composite
strips are added at the outside of the floating set..
