GFT - Granary Floor System
The GFT Granary Floor is the ideal system for replacing an outdated above floor lateral, loose brick floor, under floor lateral or wooden on-floor drying system. It is also ideal for the conversion of a building with an existing concrete floor into a new crop drying store. This concrete drive-over ventilated floor system will form a durable and more efficient drying floor, increasing the drying efficiency of the existing crop store.
The GFT Granary Floor System is designed to be cast ‘in-situ’, onto an existing concrete floor, of a minimum thickness of 4” (102mm) which does not have to be level, as any unevenness in the floor can be easily corrected with this system.
The finished drying floor system has an overall depth of 8” (203mm), and casting takes place in 4’-0” (1.22 metres) wide bays up to a maximum length of 60’-0” (18.29 metres) on either one, or both, sides of the main air duct. As a guide, the quantity of ready-mixed concrete required is approximately equivalent to casting a 4” (102mm) thick solid concrete floor over the same floor area.
Most store conversions are carried out by farm staff or others, due to the ease of installation of the “GFT KIT”, and initial on site assistance by a GFT operative is available if required.
Any suitable existing main air duct may be easily utilised with the GFT Granary Floor, and for details on how to adapt to either an existing steel or timber main air duct, please refer to the ‘Main Air Ducts’ page.
