Sand and salt storage is essential for preventing loss of material and minimizing exposure to the elements. Salt storage, in particular, is challenging because of the corrosive nature of salt and how it can accelerate the natural wear and tear that affects traditional metal structures. Calhoun engineers solutions that are specifically tailored to companies and municipalities that need to build storage for salt or sand.
Hot dip galvanization provides protection against weathering and rust that is matched only by stainless steel. Applied to both interior and exterior surfaces, our galvanization meets the established standards of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). The resulting smooth surface also decreases wear on the fabric cover by preventing tears and snags.
With experience building salt storage structures for townships and businesses, we can help you determine the right dimensions and style of structure for your needs. HT series not only provides high clearance for a mound of salt or sand, but its peaked shape also sheds snow in winter. Other structures, like the CL building series, can be more mobile for job sites that periodically move. The free-span of up to 200 feet in our VP series allows for maneuvering trucks and bulldozers as needed.
With 3D Finite Element Nonlinear Analysis, we engineer structures that are designed to stand up to your local environment. We stand behind each structure with a strong warranty up to 50 years. Find out why businesses across the country have come to trust Calhoun Super Structures.
