Height Matters

Location: Clarence, NY
Industry: Salt Storage
Dealer: Hybrid Building Solutions
Calhoun Building: HT Series 72 x 100

The Challenge

Aging salt storage facilities run the risk of structural failure and may no longer provide adequate space for salt deliveries throughout the winter months. The Town of Clarence needed a new facility with plenty of storage space, as well as enough clearance for salt delivery trucks to drive right inside without risk of damaging the structure.

The Solution

This sturdy 72 x 100 HT Series fabric structure salt storage building was built within days and in time for the winter season. The concrete foundation and walls provide a durable and environmentally-sound solution for salt storage. With the added height of the HT Series, more than one truck can easily deliver salt within the structure thus maximizing the amount of salt that can be securely stored. In addition to the building cost savings in comparison to steel or wood frame buildings, lighting costs are also minimized as the fabric cover enables the use of natural light during the day.
