Storage hall with sliding roofs

In the GermanPort of  Neuss over 5,400 Legioblocks were used for building a gigantic industrial building for Zietzschmann GmbH & Co company. KG. The walls of the storage bays are built up to 8.8 metres and are equipped with sliding aluminium roof features. Additionally, the project also includes a 12-metre high fire-resistant wall.

Storage of aggressive materials

Following a fire, the logistic service provider Zietzschmann was looking for a suitable solution for the storage or transhipments of bulk goods. They opted for a large industrial building with storage bays, predominantly for the storing fertilisers. As these materials quickly cause corrosion, Zietzschmann was looking for a construction system that does not use metals. Corrosion is not an issue for Legioblocks, because unlike prefab concrete walls, no steel elements are used.

The construction has created the available surface capacity, and of course at the lowest possible costs. The company also chose Legioblock because the system is flexible and easy to construct.

“The massive walls almost remind me of the ancient Egyptian temple walls that maintain their stability and robustness up to this day.”

Architect M. Bollongino.

Optimal usage with sliding roofs

The optimal usability of the warehouse is one of the things Zietzschmann is proud of. Bulk goods can be stacked to a height of 6.10 metres. “We would not have been able to achieve that with any other solution.” The storage bays are filled by crane through the roof. This way, the full length of the bay can be used and no space is wasted. This unique construction also results in a decrease of the number of transhipment movements.

The roofing structure consist of three sliding aluminium roof panels, just like hatch covers. The tailor-made roofs are made by Blommaert from Wijnegem (B); one of Legioblock’s regular project partners.
