Logistec USA, Inc. of Brunswick, Georgia USA needed to replace ageing wooden covers for two circular bulk storage facilities.
Logistec USA contacted Rubb, Inc. to design, fabricate, deliver and install two 116′ (35.4m) diameter custom dome covers. The material being stored in bulk was urea, a material used in fertilizers which, because of its chemical properties, required a departure from Rubb’s usual practice of post fabrication hot dip galvanizing.
The black steel frame was delivered to site and painted with a special paint to protect it from the corrosive components associated with urea. Tensioned over these steel structures was heavy duty PVC coated polyester membranes..
In addition to these covers Rubb also designed a custom canopy to link the two structures during transfer of materials.
