Silage Clamp retaining walls

CBS have recently completed the supply, delivery, unloading and placement of 168 linear metres of silage clamp retaining walls over a three-day period at Broadley Farm AD plant.

It was decided by Farm Renewables, the developers of the project that the CBS Agri U wall system would be the wall of choice to form the silage clamps due to the benefits of the CBS Agri wall range.

The Agri wall range consists of T walls, L walls and U walls. L walls are generally used at the perimeter of silage clamps as they can support loading on only one side. T walls or U walls are designed to support loading on both sides therefore they are used to separate multiple silage clamp bays.

The main advantage of the Agri U wall compared to the Agri T is that once installed, the large U channel is filled with aggregates to within a metre of the top of the wall. This forms a safe working platform that can also be used for gravel bag storage and can provide extra drainage solutions.

The benefits of the Agri wall system:

  • When storing silage, the units require no bolting or fixing to foundations
  • The units are available in lengths between 2m – 5m reducing lifts on site
  • The increased unit length compared to competitor systems reduces the number of joints that require sealing and maintaining
  • Extremely simple foundation requirements
  • Fast installation, we can offer an installation service in which we can install up to 100 metres per day
  • Huge cost savings can be made due to the fast installation, simple foundation requirements and reduced number of joints.
