Cost Effective Salt Storage Services

The planning, design & construction of Toro Salt Barns results in the most cost effective solution. The efficient, lattice steel structure which we use within all of the salt barns puts less weight on the foundation. As a result, we have smaller and more cost effective foundation element. The high quality galvanised steel frame and laminated PVC fabric result in reduced maintenance costs.

Quality Assurance On All Salt Storage Buildings

Every element of Toro’s Salt Storage Buildings is with high quality and longevity. The steel structure has a 50 year design life, and the salt barn has a 20 year warranty. It is because the structure’s quality is incomparable and its design and fabrication is compliant with Euro Codes and European Standards.

FAQs

Toro Salt Barns - Temporary or Permanent?

Toro Shelters salt barns are cleverly designed so that they are rugged and robust. Accordingly, our structures can last a life-time and are backed by Toro's 10 year warranty, as one would expect from a permanent structure. Equally, Toro’s structure’s can be re-located, re-purposed, enlarged or even re-sold. Engineered to Eurocode standards our road salt storage buildings are strong enough to sustain significant wind and snow loads. Toro's clever structural design allows our happy customers the option to move, sell or change their structures, should a project end or their business change.

Is a Toro Membrane Structure the best solution for a salt barn?

Yes, Toro build the structures using an ultra tough, UV stabilised PVC composite membrane which is cost effective, impervious to attack from salt and quick and easy to repair if damaged by operators. Other types of salt barn are susceptible to rust, fire or not fit for purpose. 

 

How high does our salt barn need to be?

This really depends on a number of factors such as planning constraints, and the type of vehicles being used to load and unload the salt form the store. Generally, if loading with a 28 tonne tipping, articulated lorry you will need an inner height of at least 11m. It will also depend on how much salt you require to store.

Does Toro have a range of different size and types of salt barn?

Yes, Toro can build the structures to any size from 100 to 18,000 square meters and in a range of different shapes and configurations with doors to suit your requirement. Our gallery below outlines a few of the many possibilities.
