A shuttered wall is self supporting, panels are only as strong as the steel holding them up
How are they self supporting?

They need steel or to be built below the floor level to start.

I prefer shuttered walls,just not the process of building them.

Maybe self supporting isn't the correct term, but yes the wall and footings are all one and no RSJs needed to hold them up
 
If I were to be paying someone to construct a silage clamp. Would It be cheaper shuttering it or panels. I’ve always been draw to panels for ease of use and that I don’t know anyone who does large scale shuttering locally although there must be someone. As a rule I’m a typical stockman so everything gets a driven into on a regular basis.

the comment above about a 6incj panel cracking is a little worrying to say the least!
Free standing concrete panels, not cheap but save a lot of time in construction and the cost of steel and footings. Also flexible in that they can be moved or even sold.
 
would that be A walls? Strong enough to fill one side and nothing the other ?
Yes, A walls, I had mine from JP concrete after a reading on here that @eulb has them and IIRC he said at the time he’d had silage up to something like 27ft in the middle!

Mine have never moved from the pressure of silage allthough rubbing the manitou wheel against them will slide them over but it’s no big deal to slide them back.

Written by John Swire

The Tenant Farmers Association (TFA) has welcomed the promotion of George Eustice to become the new DEFRA Secretary of State.
