THE EVOLUTION OF BIN ROOF DESIGN
GSI’s 40-Series line of grain storage bins featuren the revolutionary Z-Tek Roof System. The Z-Tek roof is designed to increase load capacity and allow for larger fill equipment. Working as a team, the precision engineered Z-Tek Roof System incorporates z-shaped rafters and purlins, clips, peak ring, flat top, and roof panel for unmatched strength and protection.
With the increasing speed of harvest, the size and capacities of material handling equipment have increased, leading to the need for larger flat tops on which to land equipment. Integrated attachment points within the flat top eliminate guess work on where to attach material handling equipment for more accurate assembly. An optional integrated peak walk-around is available on bins larger than 72′ diameter.
With common hardware sizes used on all connection points, roof construction is easier. Double clip attachment at peak ring makes for a stronger connection between ring and reafters. A continuous eave attachment provides simplified connnection of roof panels to sidewall for better protection of your grain.
All purlins are designed as compression purlins for even distribution of the roof load. The Z-Tek Roof System delivers an increase in peak and snow load capacities as well as a simplified design for faster installation. GSI purlins are mabufactured using the latest roll form technology for a precise fit.
Testing with loads totaling over 225,000 lbs. The Z-Tek Roof system is designed to handle extreme loads.
