The rundown

Six concrete bins and a lean-to are two important features of this bulk fertilizer storage building. Steel framing members are engineered to support loaded conveyor weight of 500 lbs per square foot.

Customer Success

“The building surprises you. In the winter it feels warmer and there’s no wind, and in the summer it feels cooler. It’s more comfortable inside the building almost all the time. I’ve literally never been inside a fertilizer shed that was vented this well. Even during the summer, we don’t have the slimy floors from humidity inside.”
