An ARK silage clamp has a sloping wall at 23 degrees.
This allows for improved compaction across the clamp and along the shoulders because the compacting machinery can work right up to the edge of the panel.
This results in much less waste in these areas.
A sloping wall also allows for safe surcharging of the clamp (piling the silage above the height of the panels) increasing capacity by up to 35% compared with a traditional vertical wall silage clamp.
Each pre-cast panel rests against an earth bank, which eliminates any movement of the panels. The earth banks also provide a safe and stable platform to work on – particularly useful when sheeting the clamp.
ARK Agriculture can also supply a handrail system that is easily fitted to the pre-cast panels improving operator safety even further.
The ARK silage clamp has been approved by the Environment Agency and is fully SSAFO (Silage, Slurry and Agricultural Fuel Oil) compliant.

Design is everything
We want you to produce high quality silage. This begins with building a silage clamp tailored to your specific requirements.
We take into account dozens of variables when designing your silage clamp.
Available space, location, wind direction and even the angle of the rising sun are all important factors that need to be considered.
Next, it is time to construct your new ARK silage clamp. Learn more about the construction here.
