Suitable Precast Products
Salt Storage Buildings
Salt storage buildings come in a wide range of sizes and can be constructed using a number of precast concrete products.
The design of a salt store can be as simple as using interlocking concrete blocks to form a temporary storage area on an external concrete floor – right up to a new structure with retaining walls, roof and floor.
Depending on the capacity and budget for your grit salt storage, we can provide a precast retaining wall system to meet your needs.
Some of our precast walls can be used to convert an existing building to a salt store, such as the interlocking concrete blocks and free-standing retaining wall units.
If you have a steel frame which is capable of taking the weight of the grit salt, our prestressed concrete panels are a cost-effective solution and enable you to retain higher than a free-standing wall.
Bolt-down L walls can also be used if the concrete floor slab is suitable to take the dowel bars – we recommend stainless steel fixings for this application.
Our most popular solution with highways agencies and local authorities, for constructing new salt barn consists of installing cast-in retaining walls around the perimeter, which are tied into a reinforced concrete floor slab.
The structure is then covered with a high-tensile fabric roof, with door openings for plant and personnel. Drainage is installed around the building to collect runoff from the salt and rainwater harvesting systems can also be included. Using this system, we are able to provide a full, design, supply & installation package.
