Top quality prime steel sidewall body sheets are 9 through 20 gauge galvanized steel with a minimum tensile strength of up to 65,000 psi (448 Mpa) and a minimum yield strength of up to 50,000 psi (345 MPa) to protect grain and provide maximum strength at all levels.
All 20 gauge through 12 gauge sheets will have two rows of bolts, staggered in low and high ribs. Approximately (75)- 3/8” x 1” Bin Bolts and 3/8” Nuts are required per body sheet. (You may add to cart at bottom of the page)
All 10 gauge and 9 gauge sheets will have two rows of bolts and a bolt in every high rib and low rib. Approximately (120)- 3/8” x 1” Bin Bolts and 3/8” Nuts are required per body sheet. (You may add to cart at bottom of the page)
NOT SURE WHAT SHEETS YOU NEED? Body Sheet Choices:
- Intermediate Body sheets are the most common body sheet used in most applications, full length sheets used from the top of the bin down. Only can be used on the bottom ring if you are using a bolt on base angle. Dimensions are 115.25″ Long x 45.75″ Tall
- Short Body sheets are only used next to a walk in bin door on the 2nd to bottom ring. Dimensions are 77.75″ Long x 45.75″ Tall
- Bottom Body Sheet w/ Rolled Flange– These sheets have the rolled flange on the bottom of the sheet that sits on the concrete (see picture). They also come pre-punched flashing holed for a 13” full floor (if you don’t want the punching simply fill in with bolts)
- Bottom Body Sheet for Use w/ Base Angle– These sheets do not have a rolled flange. You need to use a bolt on base angle that attaches to these sheets and then sets on the concrete foundation. They also come pre-punched flashing holed for a 13” full floor (if you don’t want the punching simply fill in with bolts)
Not sure what diameter your bin? Measure across the bin inside, measure it off google earth, or count the number of body sheets around the bin and multiply by 3 (i.e. 7 body sheets around x 3= 21’ Diameter Bin)
You know the diameter of the bin but not how many sheets you need?? Divide the diameter by three to get number of body sheets. (i.e. 48’ diameter bin divided by 3 = 16 body sheets around)
Not sure what gauge sheets you need? If you are replacing sheets, simply measure the thickness of existing sheets and google for a conversion. You may also find stickers or markings on some old bin sheets. Or contact a dealer for your Brand of bin. (we can provide recommendations for Brock and Butler grain bins)
I need a notched sheet for the door on a wide corrugated bin, do you have them? Well, kind of. We can get them but do not currently offer them because the additional price is ridiculous and it is much simpler and cheaper to field cut and drill.
**Grain Supply does not guarantee structural integrity of existing structures nor the fit of these body sheets and hole spacing to your existing bin. Different size grain bins have different body sheet gauge schedules. Please consult with your bin manufacturer or other professionals to determine gauges needed and use of these sheets.
