Salt and Sand Storage Solutions
Calhoun custom-engineers fabric buildings specifically tailored to companies and municipalities who need storage for the unique properties of salt and sand. With experience building salt and sand storage fabric structures for townships and businesses, we help you determine the right dimensions and style of structure for your needs.
Our highly trained engineers, designers, and detailers have spent years building the strongest and safest fabric structures available for the salt and sand industry.
Calhoun’s fabric covered buildings are built with hot-dip galvanized steel frames to resist rust and corrosion from caustic environments like in salt storage units. Applied to both interior and exterior surfaces, our galvanization meets established industry standards to improve the longevity of your structure and reduce maintenance costs
Clear Span Interior
Calhoun’s fabric structures provide clear span interiors, critical to your salt dome storage and sand operation. The height and free span interior of our fabric buildings have no interior columns, allowing tipping trucks to maneuver without interference.
Engineered to Protect Against Corrosive Environments
Salt and sand are highly corrosive materials so our hot-dip galvanized steel withstands much of the pitting, rust, and deterioration that most metals suffer. This makes the buildings resistant to damage while providing a strong, durable structure that lasts for years.
We offer an extra layer of protection for your structure when you store corrosive materials like salt. Super Shield is our rubberized spray coating, designed to add an extra layer on top of the hot-dip galvanized structure to provide superior protection.
Super Shield lengthens the life expectancy of your hot-dip galvanized trusses and base plates by guarding against deterioration and corrosion. The rubberized spray coating can be applied to your concrete and block wall foundation to create a moisture barrier protection layer, and to seal cracks.
