The Ideal Salt Storage Shed Solution
Rubb’s salt storage buildings offer an effective alternative to wooden and metal bulk storage facilities. Our salt and sand storage barns can be designed to accommodate conveyors and other loading methods: retaining side walls, utilizing Rubb’s innovative BulkBlock™ foundation system can also be integrated to resist lateral loadings.
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 salt storage sheds are specifically designed to hold up in difficult environmental and corrosive conditions, making them the ideal containment solution. Rubb offers a variety of flexible foundation options, including the Rubb designed BulkBlock™ foundation system, making our salt barns even more efficient and affordable.
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.
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.
