Store your arable crops in optimal conditions

Arable crops need to be stored in perfect conditions, cool and dry. Create the ideal climate for your storage barn with Eternit fibre cement, the right insulation, and ventilation. Keeping seeds fresh and reducing spoilage. It’s a good value investment, and a flexible solution, that integrates perfectly in the environment.

Get the temperature and ventilation right

Get the temperature and ventilation right

To prevent spoilage, proper ventilation and adequate temperature is needed in your storage barn. Fibre cement allows generous airflow and absorbs humidity, keeping your crops dry and free from fungi and mould. Lower temperatures suppress early sprouting and prolong the storage life of your seedlings.

For resistant arable crops
For crops that are not sensitive to heat, you won’t usually need insulation. Temperatures in a storage barn usually won’t drop below zero, so there’s very little risk of frost. Some of the humidity in the air will be absorbed by the fibre cement.

For optimum climate control
With full insulation under the purlin, you can play with the ventilation in the storage shed to keep the ideal storage temperature, both in winter and summer, to keep crops in perfect shape as long as possible.

Budget-friendly insulation
Here, corrugated sheets sit directly on long insulating panels. So, they’re easier to fit, making this a budget-friendly option if you want to insulate. But cleaning is more difficult. And, you’ll need to take cold-air downdraughts into account.

Avoid cold-air downdraught
With a ventilated ceiling, air enters the building and is closely regulated. This provides good circulation of fresh, clean air. Keeping the moisture levels of crops low and mould at bay.
