Economical Dry Bulk Storage

We consistently deliver high quality structures at a competitive price, while ensuring high levels of customer service.

Toro Dry Bulk Storage Buildings are the most progressive and economical solution for the storage of dry goods, such as grain, salt and wood chips. As a result we have worked across sectors installing dozens of dry bulk storage facilities addressing our clients needs.

Our Dry Bulk Shelters are versatile, extremely robust and suited to harsh and corrosive environments. Therefore these storage buildings are the best way to protect dry bulk or waste materials as well as to keep odours and dust in. Equally, the tensile fabric membranes protect from adverse weather and ‘no corner’ designs keep pests under control.

Fully relocatable, Toro Dry Bulk Shelters offer maximum flexibility

Traditional materials options for dry bulk storage buildings usually mean high costs and could be potentially less robust in certain environments. Therefore Toro Design Engineers are constantly innovating and able to create tailor made tensile fabric solutions that are a great alternative to traditional storage buildings.

Toro dry bulk shelters have a galvanised latticed steel frame which is lightweight and has unbeatable structural integrity. Additionally, all Toro Shelters are clad with high-tech laminated PVC membrane covers, tensioned over the steel frame which in turn makes the structure very strong.

Unique Features and Benefits of Toro Dry Bulk Storage Shelters

From Central London to the highlands of Scotland and beyond, our structures are the most affordable means to protect your valuable materials.

Industry wide, the same problem is evident time and time again –  ‘how to store large volumes of material dry economically and in the best possible condition for when it is needed?’

Toro Shelters offer a tailor made, economic and proportionate solution for storage of dry bulk materials. Consequently our steel-framed, PVC fabric covered shelters are by far the most cost effective means to cover dry bulk material.

From Central London to the highlands of Scotland and beyond, our structures are the most affordable means to protect your valuable materials.

Our Dry Bulk Storage Buildings are affordable because they are cleverly designed using advanced techniques. As a result, a reduced foundation size and fewer material reduce the build cost significantly.

Toro structures are extremely strong. They will last a generation. Toro Shelters are sometimes considered to be temporary bulk storage shelters because they can be disassembled and reassembled between sites or to a new location.

Our highly durable fabric covers are a great alternative to traditional or steel shelters. Timber cladding is extremely expensive and steel cladding rusts, especially in an aggressive environment such as salt barns.

However, the latticed framework has a coating of high quality galvanisation. Toro`s design team have engineered them to withstand the harshest of environmental conditions.

Our highly experienced installers can set up structures in a matter of days; therefore they can erect a Toro bulk shelter in less time than conventional structures. As mentioned above, our team will be able to rapidly relocate your dry-bulk storage shelters should the need arise.

Environmental regulation becomes ever-more demanding. It is critical that certain materials, such as salt and wood chips, are stored in an EA compliant structure.  Toro Shelters have a European CE mark. As a result, our structures protect the environment and your corporate reputation, by adhering to the various Governmental Agency guidelines.

Toro clients continue to buy our structures because they know we can be counted on to deliver the perfect solution every time. Internationally, Toro has a reputation as a ‘safe pair of hands’ to build high-quality, robust structures at a competitive price.

If you’re unsure about anything please call us. Our friendly team can offer advice at any stage of your project. Therefore, feel free to sound us out with a quick call or email.

A Toro Salt Barn will mitigate risk

NWSRG research clearly shows road salt is best covered, therefore protecting salt in a salt barn is the only way to ensure your road salt is in the best possible condition.

The risk of insufficient road salt for winter service is unimaginable. Further, having sufficient salt in poor condition is avoidable. It hinders the process of spreading salt. For example, the moisture content of stored road salt is critical. The target or Optimum moisture content (OMC) is between 1.5-4%.

The exact OMC is dependent on the nature of the salt delivered. Firstly, where the ratio of fines in the salt pile is high, it is better to have an OMC higher than 4%. Consequently, wetter salt stops the fines blowing away or being inaccurately spread. Equally, if the road salt is normal and wetter than the OMC the following will tend to occur:

  • Tunnelling in the spreader hopper.
  • Caking of salt stockpiles.
  • Leaching from salt stockpiles.
  • Poor salt distribution – areas of carriageway under or over salted.
  • Rain on uncovered salt piles create dangerous sink or swallow holes.

The Toro 10 Year Guarantee

Toro Shelters salt barns are cleverly designed and intelligent engineering minimises the use of materials. Additionally, all Toro Salt Barns are built to sustain high snow and wind loads and are designed to last a life-time, backed by Toro’s 10 year warranty.

Toro structures are the best solution for a salt barn. They have a high-quality galvanised steel framework. In addition they are covered using an ultra tough, UV stabilised PVC composite membrane. This means the cladding is cost effective. Additionally it is impervious to attack from salt. It is also quick and easy to repair if damaged by operators. Other types of salt barn are susceptible to rust, fire, rot or not fit for purpose.
