General information
Why silos for agriculture?

The agricultural sector has been particularly close to our hearts for decades!

A basic prerequisite for the rational production of animal products is the use of high-quality feed that is free of impurities, pests and fungi. Poor feed hygiene leads to a loss of feed quality and thus to reduced palatability, nutrient losses and an increased risk of disease in the animals – this is why you should store your feed in our feed silos made of high-strength high-tech fabric!

All our silos for agriculture are breathable and preserve the quality of the feed. In the production of our feed silos, grain silos and mineral silos, we take great care to ensure that only selected products are used for manufacturing. It has been and is a given for us for years that our feed silos are manufactured according to food standards!

Since 1984 farmers have relied on silos from A.B.S. for the storage of their feed, grain and minerals – we would be pleased to advise you before buying a silo for agriculture!

It can happen that a silo bag needs to be cleaned, repaired, exchanged or replaced. If this is the case with you, we are happy to help.

The flexible UV-resistant silos made of breathable, uncoated, high-strength fabric ensure a constant feed quality without formation of mould and caking.


Advantages of silos for agriculture

Tested safety and quality

Forschungsinstitut Hohenstein

Wherever one wants to determine and optimize the quality of textiles through testing of the materials, one relies on the experienced assessment of the Hohenstein Institutes. That is why the fabric processed in pellet silos is regularly subjected to testing for mechanical strength. The institute awards to the fabric of A.B.S. the characteristic of absolute tear resistance.


Our silos and our silo systems are designed in compliance with the valid regulations and standards. We also consider the regulations of the ATEX rules for applications with corresponding area classification and provide more safety in the area of explosion protection with our products. Because of decades of experience, we give process reliability and cost savings in the storage of bulk goods for a wide variety of requirements in all areas.

Food-konformes Gewebe

Feed and grain silos in a tested food-safe design: The FC fabric used for these silos complies with all requirements of regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 and in particular regulation (EU) No. 10/2011 on materials and objects made of plastic that are intended to come into contact with food.

A food approval according to the regulation (EU) no. 10/2011 is very important for many silo owners, since a corresponding declaration of conformity is required for parts that come into contact with the product, e.g. the fabric. The fabrics used for the production of the silos were tested by an accredited testing institute. This conformity is not only important for food processing companies but also for agricultural enterprises. The latter, for example, must be able to prove to their customers in the dairy or meat processing sector, that the animal feed that was used had already been stored in food-safe silos and that the animals are kept according to the requirements.

Sicherheit des Gewebes

High strength values and resistance: seams and fabrics are designed with at least a sevenfold safety. Depending on the design and bulk material, we can even count on an onehundredfold safety factor. With our quality assurance system as well as modern work techniques, IT-supported processes and regularly trained staff, we are one of the top manufacturers of flexible silos.
