Hawk Cut Floors
Sukup® Hawk Cut planks are the backbone of
a successful flush floor system. Flush floor systems are
an economical approach to aeration, that allow easier grain
removal than "above floor" ductwork.
Sukup® Hawk Cut Flooring is
twice as strong as conventional perforated floors, so
it makes the perfect base for a Sukup® Aeration System.
No steel is removed in forming the large 12% open area
in the plank, and all the openings are created in the
sloped sides of the corrugation, not at the top or bottom
ridge, which would weaken the planks. Combined with
the high arch of the corrugation, this allows Hawk Cut
planks to support up to twice the weight of other floors.
For even better airflow distribution, install a square
pad system, using Sukup® Hawk Cut planks. For the ultimate
in aeration, use a full Hawk Cut floor.
Sukup® perforated floors have the perfect perforation
for grain drying applications. The clear-punched holes provide
12% open area for maximum airflow. Smooth perforations form
an ideal surface for easy sweeping and clean-up.
Sukup® perforated planks are crowned for added
strength. The corrugation on Sukup® planks extends completely
across the width of each plank for greater strength. This
gives up to 80% more strength than floors where the corrugation
