Storage silos and storage basins

VB-EPDM membranes for sealing silos and basins.

Silo or Basin: The choice between silo or basin often depends on the space available and the capacity required. VB-EPDM membranes play a crucial role in making basins or silos watertight. Exposure to UV radiation, varying temperatures and bacteriological influences place extremely high demands on the membranes.

VB-EPDM membranes can be supplied as a single prefabricated piece measuring up to 3,000 m2 and complete with all lead-throughs. If larger sizes are required and at the request of the customer, we can also make the sheeting to measure on site. With a VB-EPDM 3D membrane, the diameter and wall height are unlimited. The seal features invisible attachment points. It is also essential to check the ground before installing VB-EPDM membranes. If it does not consist of clean sand, we recommend laying down protective sheeting before laying down the VB-EPDM membrane. If soil gases are present, then it may be necessary to install a drainage system beneath the VB-EPDM membrane.

VB-EPDM membranes consist of rubber sheeting of the highest European quality. They are created by the bespoke vulcanisation of strips of EPDM sheet and come in a selection of thicknesses. This results in seamless and homogenous VB-EPDM membranes that precisely meet the standards set. Each membrane comes with a corresponding certificate and installation instructions. VB-EPDM rubber has a very favourable environmental impact factor and it is ecologically sound. The environmental effects during its whole life cycle are extremely low.
