Quick to assemble
Our salt buildings can be deployed in a fraction of the time compared to a traditional salt storage dome.
- Prefabricated so they can be built in weeks, not months
- Most don’t require heavy equipment or skilled labor
- Can be easily disassembled, moved and/or extended any time
Work directly with building engineers
Our team of knowledgeable engineers is able to customize our steel structures to fit any budget or timeline.
- Pre-engineered and meet any local salt storage building codes
- Includes P.E. state-stamped and approved blueprints
- Experienced building project managers assist every step of the way
Our salt and sand storage buildings are wide enough to accommodate transloading with trucks and bulldozers.
- 100% usable space — no beams, trusses or columns
- Standards widths go up to 60 feet, with other custom options available
- Unlimited lengths in 2-foot increments
Industrial strength steel
Our steel arches offer superior corrosion resistance to the elements and are engineered to meet your area’s snow and wind loads.
- Made with heavy duty, high-grade, cold-rolled commercial steel
- Coated with Energy Star-rated Galvalume Plus for protection
- Concrete wall foundations are secure with superior corrosion resistance
Salt Shed Configuration Options
Most of the salt buildings we sell are custom designed to meet unique usage, environmental regulation, and code requirements. There are the main ways they differ.
Foundation & Wall Height
Salt bin foundations are typically made of concrete “bin blocks,” which are stacked to custom heights and lengths. Base plates connect the cover to the concrete.
The most popular endwall configuration is closed on one side and open on the other. Fully enclosed is also possible, with a variety of access options.
We offer optional passive ventilation for partially enclosed or large salt storage buildings, which increases air movement and reduces corrosion.
Steel vs. Fabric vs. Salt Domes
Quonset hut buildings have clear advantages over fabric salt storage or traditional salt domes.

Road Salt Storage
Rock salt lowers the freezing point of water, which makes it difficult for water to freeze and create hazardous road conditions. Roads are coated in a road salt and water mixture known as “brine” as a preventative measure during cold weather. With 11 million tons of rock salt being used on the roadways each year, it is the most common option for de-icing roads.
Sand & Frac Storage
Aside from common sand, our salt storage buildings also accommodate frac sand. Frac sand isn’t exactly like the sand you’d find at the beach. It can be in the form of ceramic beads, resin-coated sand and natural sand.
Similar to general sand storage, our buildings will protect frac sand from the elements, keeping it dry and pure for processing. This can eliminate the need for frac storage tanks or frac bins for sand storage and provide an ideal solution for frac sand transloading facility operations with plenty of room.
We hope some of our customers’ most impressive projects will inspire you to get started on your own Quonset hut structure. See all articles.
