Northern Strands Innovative Grain Bin Fall Protection System Draws Media Attention at AG in Motion

Recently Northern Strands launched it's Grain Bin Fall Protection System at AG in Motion, the fastest growing Agriculture trade show in Canada. The response was overwhelmingly positive! Farmers from across Canada stopped by our booth to express interest in our Grain Bin Fall Protection System. Farmers were very excited at the prospect of a simple, easy to use, cost effective solution that would prevent people from falling off a grain bin and impacting the ground or falling to the bottom of a grain bin and suffocating.

Almost every farmer had a story to tell of them or someone they know falling off or in a grain bin. We obviously knew people fall off grain bins, but we were shocked at the high frequency in which grain bin falls happen. Many farmers we talked to had a story to tell, from broken legs, arms, backs, you name it we heard it.

One very exciting aspect of the trade show was our fall protection system being nomination for the AG in Motion Innovative product award. This nomination brought us to the attention of numerous media outlets. By the end of the trade show our fall protection team had completed at least a half dozen interviews on the Grain Bin Fall Protection System.

Northern Strands Develops Cutting Edge Grain Bin Fall Protection System

This fall protection system is a cutting edge product designed to protect farm workers from a fall while climbing or accessing a bin for repairs or inspections. In today’s world, worker/farmer safety has never been more emphasized and important than it is right now. At Northern Strands we believe serious injuries are preventable and avoidable with proper planning and systems in place. It is with this belief in mind that Northern Strands accepted the challenge of making grain bin inspections and repairs more safe by developing a fall protection system. When properly installed and used, our system will prevent a person from falling off a grain bin and impacting the ground or falling into the bottom of a grain bin and suffocating. Currently this system is compatible with the Westor and Westeel 1805 bins. Northern Strands is working on Fall Protection Systems that will work for other models of grain bins.

The launch for this new Grain Bin System is happening at AG in Motion Tuesday July 18, 2017 - Thursday July 20, 2017. AG in Motion is just 15 mins NW of Saskatoon on Hwy 16 at Range Road 3083. Northern Strands will be at Booth Space 420. There will be demos throughout the week.
