Spantech was contracted to design and install wide span roofs on three major port-side grain storage facilities for ABB Grain in New Zealand. The facilities are located in Mt Maunganui, New Plymouth and Manukau.
Featuring over 9,000 square metres of distinctive Spantech roofing, the ABB Grain handling facilities include one of the widest clear span roofs constructed by Spantech measuring 41.6 metres, with the span achieved using the Spantech 370 Series profile.
The roofs are supported on 6.5-metre high precast concrete walls with an apex of 15 metres. Key features also include double-sided pre-painted ColorGuard steel for extended life, a completely sealed internal finish, skylights, actuated controlled roof vents and end wall louvres.
