Pellet silo: Flexilo outdoor fabric tank

with waterproof & UV-resistant foil

More space in your cellar with the outdoor tank

 

The Flexilo Outdoor outdoor tank makes it possible to store pellets outdoors all year round and thus easily solves space problems when storing pellets.

Inside, a Flexilo fabric tank stores pellets in a space-saving way, protected from moisture and at the same time cost-effective.

On the outside, a waterproof and UV-resistant foil protects the entire construction. The kit comes with a base plate and optionally with a sheet metal façade for an even more attractive appearance.

 

Advantages of the ÖkoFEN fabric tank for outdoor installation:

More space in the building

Waterproof & UV-resistant

Simple assembly without foundation

Quick assembly

  • No loss of space in the building
  • No foundation necessary (only 10 cm ballast subsoil required)
  • Stable construction
  • Simple construction
  • Waterproof

External dimensions of the outer tank

The external dimensions are L x W x H: 225 cm x 161 cm x 265 cm.

 

What preparatory work is necessary for the installation of an outdoor tank?

The installation area (+30 cm eaves strip on each side) must be levelled with at least 10 cm of ballast.

Required gravel area: 290 cm x 220 cm

For the pellet transport hoses, a wall duct to the boiler room as well as continuous UV protection is required (e.g. HT pipe). 

Additional recommendation for preparatory work: 7 pieces concrete slabs 40x40x4cm to facilitate the construction.

 

 

Flexible installation of the fabric tank thanks to our vacuum suction system.

The vacuum suction system enables flexible installation of the boiler and pellet store. The pellets are reliably transported from the pellet tank to the heating system. The Flexilo fabric tank can be placed in the boiler room or in another room at a greater distance (max. 20 m) from the boiler or outside the building.
