WINNPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA — Westeel announced on Nov. 24 the addition of catwalks to its product line to better serve the global agriculture industry. The catwalk system is engineered and precisely manufactured by Westeel and the modular design requires less towers and less installation time than traditional systems.
Westeel said its engineers optimize every catwalk system to the location’s specific weather conditions, seismic zones and site, providing a cost-effective solution. Westeel catwalks and goal posts support high capacity conveyors of over 400 tph (14,700 bushels per hour) with minimal use of towers, greatly reducing material and installation costs. The product meets or exceeds European and North American codes, including EN ISO 14122-1, 14122 2, 14122-3, 14122-4 and ANSI A1264.1-1995 (R2002).
The first Westeel catwalk system was installed in Ontario, Canada.
“The Westeel catwalks installation went seamlessly and took half the time to install compared with other systems,” said Harold Wilcocks, manager and sales of Wilcocks Brothers of Watford Limited.
“We see grain storage and handling trending towards larger and larger operations. Along with our PTM Technology line of conveyors and bucket elevators and with our extensive line of bins, our Catwalks allow us to better meet those growing needs,” said André Granger, president and general manager of Westeel.
Westeel catwalks can be supplied with or without conveyor path; with dual walkway; with dual conveyor path; with service platforms; with a bin peak connection and roof stairs; with punched or bar grating floor; and with a number of other features.
