Concrete Modular Block Shelters

Toro’s exceptionally flexible construction system

Suitable for Temporary, Relocatable and Permanent Shelters

The Toro Concrete Modular Block Shelter is an exceptionally flexible construction system with a tensioned fabric roof mounted directly onto the blocks

Concrete modular blocks form the base of the fabric structure, creating the foundation element. This means the blocks may be placed on a concrete slab or even compacted type-1 hardcore. as well as being the foundation, they also form an ideal barrier or push wall should material be stored in the structure.

The Toro Shelters Cover has a comparatively low weight which means it requires a comparatively light-weight foundation. Consequently expensive and timely excavation work is not required which results in beneficial cost savings.

These interlocking blocks have been available for over a decade and once installed will last several lifetimes. Furthermore, they do not require mortar and are therefore suitable for both temporary and permanent structures as they can be easily disassembled.

Concrete modular block shelters offer the strength to withstand the load of the material in the structure and also create a strong push wall system against which loaders and machinery can load their buckets to move material around or loading trucks.

These structures and concrete blocks can be re-located or even sold at the end of a lease or project. The re-locatable qualities of concrete modular block shelters may also be viewed in a positive light by planning authorities when considering the building’s approval.

Toro Concrete Modular Block Shelters are commonly used in Highways and Council Depot environments in Salt Barns, Vehicle Maintenance Shelters, Waste Transfer Bay Covers, Vehicle Garages, Warehousing and Storage Buildings. Toro Shelters are an active advisory member for the National Winter Service Research Group.

Concrete Modular Block Shelter Installation Process

Once the modular concrete blocks have been placed in courses, in-situ, the Toro Shelter galvanised steel framework is anchored into the top course of blocks. The steel frame is then covered with our rugged PVC laminated fabric and tensioned to form a tight water-proof skin over the framework.

The robust nature of the structure’s galvanised steel frames and the laminated PVC cover are backed up with the CE mark. This means you have the comfort of knowing your structure will last for a generation or more.

Toro’s concrete interlocking blocks form a total solution for building of many kinds of protective structures including storage bays, retaining walls, salt storage, bulk storage, silage pits, concrete firewalls and industrial buildings. Concrete block mounted fabric shelters are cost-effective, rapid means of building a robust shelter, and importantly, they are fire-resistant.
