“The wall in this hall looks like it's made out of bricks and mortar. In reality it's a print of a photograph of an old house. Printed gables is an up-and-coming trend,” says Leif Fagernäs.

They have it covered

Best-Hall is the leading manufacturer of halls with steel frameworks

Steel framework halls made by Best-Hall are popping up all over the world. Whether its sports halls, production halls, hangars or storage facilities, the company has it covered. Now Best-Hall is pushing its product range even further. The company has started making halls for the agricultural sector.

“Outside of our domestic market, the agricultural halls can be giant. Our bigger regular halls are around 5,000 square metres, while agricultural halls can be up to 40,000 square metres,” says Leif Fagernäs, CEO at Best-Hall.

New markets for agricultural halls can be found in the former east block and in the Arabic-speaking world.

“These countries want to become self-supporting when it comes to agriculture. It will be interesting to be part of that development. Our goal is to grow the company and add more products to our existing offering. We’re doing this by finding new markets where our products can be used in new ways.”

The new agricultural halls will be made out of, among other things, high-tenancy polyester cloth over a steel frame and gables with a sandwich element. The cloth is protected with a fire retardant and in the case of a fire the smoke is lead out through a hole in the construction. The agricultural concept is developed together with the Pellon Group Oy, a company that sells comprehensive solutions to the agricultural industry.

Best-Hall specialises in making fabric cladded halls with a steel frame. Their most recent offering is an agricultural hall. This one is 60 metres long and can be found in central Finland.

“We’ve had a good response to our first sample hall that we handed over in early 2015. It is 24 metres wide and can house around 100 cows. This type of hall has given us a new way of looking at how we can develop our products.”

It takes around a week to build a standard none-insulated 1000 square metre hall. The halls don’t have a concrete foundation and are easy to move and rebuild. The halls can also be equipped with insulation and intelligent systems that collect heat and they can therefore be used for almost anything. Best-Hall is currently considering how to take their new ideas to the skies.

“At the moment we’re looking at the global aircraft market. We deliver a number of hangars every year, a couple of new partners have allowed us to look at new opportunities in the market. We’re already the best quality hangar supplier out there, now we’re aiming to grow as well.”
