However, private and public road crews should never leave salt piles exposed to the elements. Precipitation can cause salt to either dissolve or become lumpy. Both public works departments and private snow plowing companies need proper salt storage facilities to keep it dry, as well as easily accessible.
A ShelterTech SP building can be used for salt storage by both municipal and private snow removal operators. When mounted atop a concrete or cinder block foundation, a ShelterTech SP building can be used to keep salt dry and safely stored. Snow removal trucks can back up to the ShelterTech SP salt storage building, load up on salt, and be on their way to remove snow and ice.
When salt is properly stored inside a ShelterTech SP building, it can also prevent environmental damage. When it’s left out in the open, runoff from salt can contaminate streams, wells, groundwater, and other nearby water sources.
ShelterTech SP buildings are made with top quality steel that’s galvanized in the U.S. to resist corrosion and rust, and rugged PVC fabric that are backed up by a 15-year pro-rated warranty. When properly anchored, they are wind and snow load rated to take on the toughest weather. They are also built to your specifications: choose from three different roof styles, building lengths up to 100 ft. long, and widths of up to 30 ft. wide. Configure a ShelterTech SP building for your municipal or private salt storage needs.
