Store More Salt for Less with Fabric
Sand & Salt Storage Buildings
The Most Efficient Salt Storage Domes
When it comes to maintaining roads and walkways, you need reliable access to salt and sand when inclement weather strikes. Britespan salt buildings are a cost-effective, practical way to protect your de-icing materials year-round.
Britespan manufactures pre-engineered fabric buildings that make it easy to store and access materials with front loaders. Our salt storage domes are entirely clear-span allowing you to maximize cubic storage space and minimize the overall cost per ton stored. The spacious interiors are large enough for two high-lift trailers to be raised at the same time.
Our custom fabric buildings come in widths up to 300 feet to easily accommodate doors of all sizes and feature flexible foundation options. Britespan's salt and sand buildings are perfect for:
- Landscaping and seasonal maintenance companies
- Private road maintenance companies
- Department of Transportation (DOT)
- Municipal highway and road maintenance departments
TJ Allen Trucking
Bulk Salt Storage Building
Wow, have a look at this enormous fabric building constructed for TJ Allen Trucking! The 160-foot-wide by 500-foot-long fabric structure houses over 100,000 TONS of road salt. It lets in plenty of natural light, even on cloudy days and evenings, creating clear visibility for operators working inside the building. The column-free interiors and clear-span height allow multiple semi-trucks and other vehicles to drive in and make a complete U-turn inside the building without any difficulty!
Our steel-framed fabric buildings are available up to 300-feet-wide to any length, column-free, and have extraordinary interior clearance. Store more salt in a smaller footprint, and easily maneuver large vehicles and loaders.
Salt can be safely stored and kept dry under our domed fabric structures in convenient, roadside locations. Ample natural light and a shadow-free interior make for a safe operating environment.
Road salt storage
With buildings as small as 24-feet-wide and multiple foundation options, accessing your road salt from a variety of locations is easy. Depots, parking lots and recreation facilities can have onsite salt storage for readily available de-icing.
Cost Efficiency | Superior Buildings
The cubic storage inside Britespan's tension fabric buildings allows our customers to store more salt for less, in less space. The same building footprint can store more salt than a conventional salt shed and make it easier for operators and access materials. Britespan's Magnum series uses proprietary engineering and independent piers to support the structure, while the retainer wall on the inside of the building contains the salt, decreases foundation costs, reduces impact damage from loader and keeps salt away from the building.
Our steel trusses are hot-dip galvanized after all fabrication is completed for superior corrosion resistance and our fabric covers are non-corrosive -- the perfect match to stand up to the harsh environment inside a salt storage building. Air circulation and ventilation also help to expel moisture build up inside your salt storage dome, helping to reduce caking and maintain the quality of your de-icing products.
