We installed silage clamps of 28 metres with our L250 heel retaining walls at Denissen Van Tiggelen VOF dairy farm in Nispen (Province of Noord-Brabant). The dairy farmer stores grass in one silage clamp and maize in the other. A compartment was installed in the centre for effluent and rainwater.
L Retaining walls
We supply L silage clamps in two types: with heel and without heel. The L250 heel retaining walls were used at this dairy farm. What is unique about this type of retaining wall is that it has a 2 cm camber at the bottom. This camber offers additional protection from effluent and acts as a rubbing strake.
The silos were sealed with indestructible bitumen sealant and finished with an acid-resistant asphalt layer, installed by Avema Wegenbouw in Achterveld.

Project in the picture
Silage clamp at unique angle
In Sprang Capelle, a farmer wanted to combine the space behind a stable with an entrance next to the stable. Our retaining walls created a unique silage clamp with an angle of 118 degrees
Large silage clamp in Engelum, Friesland
Dairy farmer Bakker in Engelum expanded his feed storage facility with a substantial silage clamp of 85 metres long, 24 metres wide and 4 metres high
Asphalt in the silage clamp: durable and acid resistant
A heavy load and the impact of corrosive substances have a negative impact on the floor of your silage clamp or yard surfacing. Our client had the Bosch Beton silo clamp lined with asphalt for a durable and acid-resistant top layer.
