In the beautiful, quintessentially rocky coast village of Stonington, Rubb provided a municipal salt shed to service the roads of Deer Isle, Maine.
Completed in the fall of 2019, the building measures 60’ x 93’ x 16’ and is equipped with a 20’ x 20’ electric powered Cookson roller shutter door.
The building is mounted upon Rubb’s patented BulkBlock foundation system. Essentially, the Bulkblock system provides the structure with a code compliant foundation system, while also serving as a retaining wall for road materials. For more information on Rubb Bulkblocks, please visit here.
The Rubb NV structure is also hot dip galvanized which provides the best corrosion protection in the marketplace, far superior to wooden and metal bulk storage facilities. It is designed to withstand difficult environmental and corrosive conditions and have much lower maintenance costs than traditional storage facilities. Rubb salt and sand storage barns can also be designed to accommodate conveyors and other processing methods.
This salt shed is yet another example of Rubb’s very high standards of engineering to suit any location and local building codes. The quality materials and trusted construction methods provide a structure with an expected life of more than 30 years.
