Water cascades off the large surface area of grain bin roofs every time it rains or snow melts. Landing on the concrete foundation, it pools up and seeps under the bin, damaging bins and grain.
Problem: Rain and snow. Rusty bin. Rotten corn.
Solution: The All-Bin Skirt
Windproof and waterproof, sturdy and snug.
Half-hour installation time on smaller 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.
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 bin base is always kept 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 moving of a bin.
Even temporary sealants costing more than the All-Bin Skirt don't hold up...
The large surface area of the bin roof collects boatloads of water, immediately dumping on the concrete apron, inches from your valuable grain and bin. Water then does the damage.
With the All-Bin Skirt, it doesn't matter that bins expand and contract. 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 corn
· No more need to apply caulking, tar, sealants and expensive compounds every year that are, at best, temporary.
The All-Bin Skirt. Your solution.
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 a brush for the sealant, all included in your quoted price. All you need is a cordless drill and a credit card.
Designed to be mounted at a 45-degree angle, the All-Bin Skirt fits against the bin and corner of the concrete apron.
Guaranteed to go on quicker and easier than the tar and feather job bin workers have been applying for the last hundred 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 even left the sealant off some installations to see what would happen. The concrete stayed dry with the All-Bin Skirt!
We manufacture and ship each All-Bin Skirt to fit each individual bin.
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, maximum 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 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!
