For Annemieke Aal and Martijn Riewald with Gauris, film is the common theme of their working life. Two years ago, the entrepreneurs switched to greenhouse horticulture.
According to the film makers, the still relatively new glasshouse horticulture film player feels completely at home in the world of water storage.
In their new production facility in Heerenveen they produce enormous quantities of custom-made films for water basins. For large volumes of cubic meters, the company is able to 'weld' the water basins together quickly and watertight on site.
Annemieke Aal en Martijn Riewald introduceerden zichzelf in juni 2019.
There are water basins, and silos. Last year, for example, a Polish customer of Gauris got a new one.
Water silos can have a diameter of 1 to 32 meters and a height of 1 to 5.5 meters. According to the makers, the steel plates of Gauris' silos distinguish themselves by their dimensional stability and mechanical tensile strength. In all cases, the water silos are given a waterproof silo lining. Gauris films are available in various types and thicknesses, suitable for the storage of rainwater (clean water) and recirculation water.
Globally, there is an increasing demand for water storage and the need to improve sanitation facilities in third world countries. The development of concepts for the purification and storage of drinking water has therefore recently been added to Gauris' product portfolio. It forms "an important pillar for the future," as can be read in the company description.
To prevent algae growth and evaporation in a water silo, Gauris offers a wide range of covering options. An anti-algae tarpaulin, floating deck, tension tarpaulin, or even a steel roof are among the possibilities. In addition, the range includes materials specifically developed and suitable for water storage in countries with extreme climatic conditions such as heat, cold, and high UV-exposure.
