Fabric Structures for Salt and Sand Storage

As fall approaches, many municipalities are preparing for winter storms. Winter storms can be scary, but having safe roads can dramatically improve the quality of life for everyone in the area.

Plowing roads and/or topping them with salt and sand makes the road safer for commuters, families and anyone else who needs to drive during or after a snow storm. By being prepared with an adequate supply of road salt and sand, local areas can ensure safe roads for their citizens. Now all that’s needed is an effective and economical way to store road salt and sand.

Fabric buildings are a perfect solution for salt and sand storage for a number of reasons.

  • Fabric naturally resists rust. Unlike steel, fabric can come in direct contact with corrosive elements such as salt. Fabric is the only material that is guaranteed to last in a corrosive environment.
  • Although fabric buildings are built on a steel frame, the steel components are covered with a fabric liner and never come in contact with salt. This helps ensure your building will stand for decades.
  • Because fabric buildings are completely customizable, you can choose the length, width and height of your building to maximize space and reduce cost. Your building will allow for ideal pile heights, and the sidewalls and peak will be high enough to maneuver tip trucks, cranes and other equipment.
  • Fabric buildings are naturally well-lit. You may not need any artificial lighting during the day, and you’ll use less lighting at night.
  • Fabric is a lightweightweight material, allowing for an open floorplan inside the building. This gives you even more room to drive large equipment and pile road mix.
Putting up a fabric salt and sand storage building now will let you buy salt and sand in large quantities and when it’s least expensive.
