Water cascades off the large surface area of grain bin roofs each time it rains or snow melts. Landing on the concrete foundation, it pools up and seeps under the bin, damaging bins and grain.
Cause: Rain & snow
Bottom Line: Rusty bins. Rotten product.
This 48' bin is less than 10 years old and is already rusting out.
Solution: The All-Bin Skirt
Watch the action...
Dry bin base
Dry concrete apron
Windproof and waterproof, sturdy and snug.
Approximately an hour installation time on small bins. Larger bins take a little longer.
An easy-to-install and permanent solution for your bin facility.
The All-Bin Skirt fits all bins.
Edges are double-seamed to avoid sharp edges and cuts. The All-Bin Skirt flexes and is custom built to fit any bin, large or small. Also adaptable to bins with stiffeners on the outside.
Secured to the bin, the All-Bin Skirt slides over the bin base edge. The bin base is always dry.
Without the All-Bin Skirt,, the problem will continue.
Bins move with heat and cold. Expansion and contraction destroy any seal you can apply.
This unchangeable law of physics constantly opens cracks and channels in tar and other compounds that have been applied to the bin base. No bin can stay sealed with the inevitable and constant expansion and contraction from heat and cold.
Even temporary sealants costing more than the All-Bin Skirt don't hold up...
The large surface area of the bin roof collects rain water, and then immediately dumps on the concrete apron, inches from your valuable grain and bin. Water then does the damage.
How much longer can you afford to go skirtless?
With the All-Bin Skirt, it doesn't matter that bin and concrete temperature differentials move the bin base in and out. All that matters is that the All-Bin Skirt is on to keep the rain off.
· No more water pooling up on the concrete apron
· No more rust forming on the bottom of the bin
· No more water flooding under the bin and rotting your grain
· No more need to apply caulking, tar, sealants and expensive compounds every year that are, at best, temporary.
The All-Bin Skirt. Your solution.
Deflectors for doorways and other fixtures are available.
The All-Bin Skirt is shipped in rolls, easy to install and made to custom fit your concrete apron width. Overlapped so your bin is fully covered.
One end of the sturdy All-Bin Skirt is screwed to the bin and then unrolled, flexing to fit snugly against the bin and concrete. Self-drilling screws fasten the skirt in place.
We provide the All-Bin Skirt, flashing, nut driver, screws, sealant and sealant brush, all included in your quoted price. All you need is a cordless drill and a credit card.
Designed to be mounted at a 30 to 50-degree angle, the All-Bin Skirt fits against the bin and corner of the concrete apron.
Guaranteed to go on quicker and easier than tar, caulking and other compounds bin workers have been applying for the last eighty or ninety years. With the All-Bin Skirt, there are no more annual redo's.
Since there is no movement or force against the skirt like there is against sealants, it will remain intact indefinitely.
We manufacture and ship each All-Bin Skirt to fit each of your individual bins.
Costs depend on the width of your concrete apron and the diameter of your bin plus freight.

If bin is off-center more than 2" on the base, longest concrete edge-to-bin spacings must be provided for a final quote.
After we put skirts on our bins, the inside and outside bin floors and aprons have stayed dry. Haven't had to seal them for several years now. We have 8 bins holding more than 155,000 bushel. Very nice!
