Salt & Sand Storage Sheds

Rubb Building Systems is recognized as a worldwide leader in innovative, practical and cost-effective salt and sand storage solutions.

The Ideal Salt Storage Shed Solution

Rubb’s salt and sand storage buildings offer an effective alternative to wooden and metal bulk storage facilities. Our salt and sand storage barns can be designed with various sized door openings or can be “open gabled” to allow material delivery and removal. Retaining walls can be customized as needed or Rubb’s innovative BulkBlock™ foundation system can be integrated to increase material storage capacity.

Rubb salt sheds and sand storage buildings are engineered and detailed to exacting standards. The materials and methods incorporated into our product are chosen to provide a structure with an expected life of over 20 years with minimal to no long-term maintenance. Rubb utilizes the best corrosion protection available to maximize building longevity.

Rubb salt storage sheds are proven to hold up in difficult environmental and corrosive conditions, making them the ideal containment solution.

Cooperative purchasing: Rubb Building Systems has partnered with Sourcewell, formerly the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA), to offer education, government and non-profit agencies a nationally leveraged, competitive bid procurement contract.

Low Maintenance / Low Costs

Our high-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized welded frames deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb salt barns more economical compared to conventional structures.

High Quality Membrane

Energy-Efficient Roof Membranes

Translucent membranes allow natural daylight to illuminate the salt storage space while the white roof surface reflects heat. Optional Thermohall® insulation minimizes heat transfer, prevents condensation and virtually eliminates thermal bridging and air infiltration.

Multiple Door Options

Rubb offers a variety of different door solutions to accommodate salt storage. They can be selected and designed to suit all opening requirements. This flexibility ensures that our clients get the best option for their selected salt shed type, depending on their operational needs.

Rapid Construction, Installation and Relocation

Rubb salt storage barns can be quickly erected, dismantled and relocated due to module pre-fabrication. Rubb can provide site supervisors or fully dedicated construction teams to complete any custom salt barn project.

Flexible and Cost-Efficient Foundation Systems

Rubb salt and sand barns can accommodate many foundation options such as concrete up-stand, ballast weights, and ground anchors into an existing surface. Rubb co-ordination with the groundwork contractor is key for the client to reach the most cost effective solution.

Salt & Sand Storage Structure Types

Rubb can provide custom designed salt and sand sheds in a variety of configurations and sizes to suit your specific requirements.

Rubb BVR Structure

BVR Structure

The BVR features rectangular leg and roof box sections. This takes up less space and provides more overall internal clearance. This design is a popular choice for bulk storage buildings.

Rubb BVE Structure type

BVE Structure

BVE structures feature lattice frame sidewalls and can be designed with single or multiple lattice roof pitches. Span widths start from 20m to 40m, by any length.

Rubb NV Structure

NV Structure

The NV was the first steel truss span building by Rubb. The design originated in Norway and has a vertical sidewall. The high arch of the roof makes this profile ideal for bulk storage.
