Commercial Bins are a key part of Sukup's grain storage solutions, designed to meet the specific needs of commercial operations. These bins are known for their strength, durability, and advanced features, making them an ideal choice for large-scale storage requirements.

A primary feature of these Commercial Bins is their robust design. They are engineered to handle the significant weight and stress associated with storing large quantities of grain. With maximum capacities of up to 2.25 million bushels, there are Sukup Commercial Bins to fit the needs of any operation. This durability is crucial for ensuring the safety and longevity of the bin.

One unique factor of Sukup Commercial Bins with laminated sheets is the use of a Double End Stud Bolt™. Utilizing a Double End Stud Bolt™ effectively prevents moisture from seeping between the stiffener and laminated sheets, keeping the stored grain dry. If the sidewall consists of three or more laminated sheets, Sukup utilizes laminated splice plates to reduce bolt stress and risk of bolt shear. Instead of overlapping the edges of laminated sidewall sheets, they use a butt joint and specially designed splice plates. The design makes the bin easier to erect because the holes are properly aligned and eliminate gaps that can lead to leaking.

The design of Sukup's Commercial Bins also focuses on efficient grain storage and handling. Sukup’s bin sheets are made so precisely that every feature goes together perfectly. They are equipped with features that promote aeration and moisture control, essential for preserving the quality of stored grain. This is particularly important in commercial settings where grain quality directly impacts profitability.

The Commercial Bins stand as a testament to Sukup’s dedication to providing high-quality, reliable solutions for commercial grain storage. Their combination of strength, advanced features, and adaptability makes them an essential component in commercial operations.
