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..
