We have now sourced a metal pedestal that we are happy to sell, for those of you who require this type of ventilation. The base is louvred,so no material has been removed, making the pedestal stronger. There is no need for a filter when used to cool OSR and small seeds. Seeds are less likely to block louvred slots and equal air distribution is maintained. Metalcool is available in Standard 1.2m x 250mm and Maxi 1.2m x 300mm sizes Whatever your material preference there is no need to look any further for crop ventilation products than Evans and Pearce.

Plastic Grain Pedestals - Polycool
Evans and Pearce not only brought the first metal pedestals to the industry but have also pioneered the design and manufacture of the plastic grain pedestal. The twin walled pedestal is a custom perforated twin walled plastic pipe not to be mistaken for black drainage pipe, an inferior product often mistakenly sold for the use of grain cooling.
