When you’re running a farm, protecting your investment into large farm equipment is important. Keeping them in good working condition, including protecting them from the elements saves time fixing and maintaining so you can work quickly and efficiently. And as we know, time is money. 

This 80′ W x 188′ L x 20′ H storage facility in rural Illinois checks all of the boxes. Two large overhead sidewall doors and a motorized swing door on the end wall ensure hassle-free equipment storage without having to remove larger hookups to enter. The swing-door has an accessible gearbox with a wireless remote, so opening and closing is effortless from inside or outside of the building, zero loss of headroom means you can utilize all 20′ of the door’s height, and it is ASTM rated at 80 MPH winds when open and 115 MPH winds when closed. 

Custom vented cupolas and coordinating steel J-panels and vinyl slider windows give it a sleek, finished look.
