Smart silos a clever choice

Written by  Mark Daniel
Smart Silos. Smart Silos.

Made from rotationally moulded polyethylene, the Smart Silo range offers capacities from 280 litres to 30 tonnes.

They offer a longer lasting and more hygienic storage solution for all types of contents and operations. 

New Zealand made and available direct from the manufacturer, Advantage Plastics, Smart Silos have been providing all types of farmers throughout the country with storage solutions for the likes of grains and feeds for two decades.

The one-piece product design means there is no assembly required on-site. More importantly, it eliminates the risk of moisture ingress and the spoiling of the contents. 

Manufactured from medium density, food grade, UV-stable rated polyethylene, the silos are tough, durable and rust-free, so will retain their value and condition.

As part of the customisation package offered by Smart Silo, all framework and plastic moulding is carried out in-house, so the company is able to meet special requirements such as bespoke framing to accommodate machinery or systems, and colour matching to complement existing buildings or landscapes. They can also help with obtaining resource consents.
