The demands of farming are never ending. The risks are high. You need grain system solutions that maximize productivity and minimize downtime. We are driven to provide top-of-the-line products that will protect, condition and move the grain you work so hard to produce. And our network of dealers is committed to support you and your operation’s growth every step of the way.
Our commitment and focus have resulted in GSI becoming the world’s number one manufacturer of grain bins and a global leader in drying and material handling equipment. However, it is your dedication that inspires us to create the best grain systems possible.
Today's production requirements demand systems that excel in performance and are reliable year after year. In addition, easy installation, simple operation, durability, flexibility, and operation efficiency are all carefully considered in the design and construction of every GSI product manufactured.
THAT’S WHY GSI.
40-Series™ roof panels incorporate a 3’’ tall rib with over-and-under lap profiles ensuring a precise fit (see illustration). 3-bend rib profiles are also incorporated in the new design for increased strength to stand up even in the harshest environments.
HIGHER CAPACITY AND SUPERIOR PROTECTION
Each GSI bin is efficiently designed to handle maximum loads for unmatched strength. All GSI bins are constructed using the highest-strength steel available. Sidewall sheets are made from high-tensile steel that is rated up to 70,000 psi (450 MPa) minimum. A commercial G-90, galvanized steel coating increases life and durability.
GSI uses JS500 bolts paired with sealing washers to protect the grain. JS500 coated hardware provides added protection from rust, promoting longer bin life.
Rolled structural base angle prevents water from entering at the base of the bin for improved protection.
Redesigned roof vents promote increased airflow for improved performance. Vents feature a two-piece steel design with an optional cricket. Roof vents are available in grill vent and auto vent.
INCREASE SNOW LOAD CAPACITY
You can rest assured knowing that your grain is protected and dry from the elements in a GSI grain bin. GSI 40-Series bins can handle even the harshest of winter seasons with increased snow load capacity.
STURDY BIN LADDERS
GSI high-strength ladders have roll-formed sides and stamped rungs to eliminate rung spin. Quick assembly sections are available in 48” lengths and feature dimpled rungs for a better grip. GSI’s ladder cages are completely galvanized and bolt directly to the prepunched sidewall ladders. Optional X-Series ladders are designed to meet OSHA specifications. Designed with step-through platforms, X-Series ladders are mounted 90 degrees to the sidewall to eliminate toe hazards such as stiffeners, wind rings and other bracketry. Also available is a climbing assist cable system.
WALK-THROUGH BIN DOORS
Walk-through doors are standard on all 40-Series™ grain bins. The outer door cover swings completely with the door cover hold-back and closes tightly with an exclusive weather seal, keeping water and pests out, and your protected grain in. All inner door panels on GSI’s walk-through door open completely. There are no horizontal bars or braces to unbolt or remove. To counteract friction set from grain loads, the specially designed lever latch multiplies the inner door opening force by 20 times, so opening is quick and easy. No wrenches or tools are required to operate.
