  • Sukup Manufacturing Co. is now offering grain bin doors with enhanced safety features. The doors have new hardware that ensures inner panels are closed before the outer door will close correctly with both latches engaged. The new hardware can be mounted on either side of the door, providing enhanced safety whether the door is installed to open left to right or right to left. The design is currently patent pending. “Inadvertent grain spillage from your bin door can potentially cause death or injury,” said Sukup bin sales director John Hanig. “Here at Sukup, we are continuously working to improve the design of our products to make them as safe and productive as possible. This new door design especially enhances safety by making sure the inner door panels are always closed when the outside door is closed.” (Submitted photo)
