Product Storage Arches
Large span product storage buildings typically use a ground-to-ground arch structure. This makes for very high capacity and efficient structures.
Arch structures engage wood in a favorable property of compression, making for very high capacity and efficient structures. Western Archrib has been designing these buildings since its incorporation & has in-house experts who can design from the ground up. Since wood is inert to salt and many other corrosive substances, it is the primary choice for potash and salt storage facilities. Beams up to 150' in length have been used for arches; the largest beams Western Archrib produces.
