The freestanding Concrete Bunker Walls are designed to minimise the hassle of storing bulk materials in various industries including agriculture, horticulture, recycling, woodchip and biomass. The wall is the optimum shape and profile for the storage of grain, aggregate, solid fuels and other materials. The unique curved shape has been developed to allow the free flow of material to the floor with a 100mm straight portion at the bottom edge to aid the removal of material from the bay.
