Protect Your Equipment With Economical Storage

high profile

We have a variety of shapes and sizes to suit your equipment storage needs.

Our buildings can have very straight sidewalls for more interior space with or without putting it a wall.

The recommended covering is a 12 mil woven plastic tarp that is a three layer white, or green canvas. This will prevent excessive wear and tear on the cover if equipment is bumping into it.

Putting your equipment in a storage building reduces fading by the sun and helps your investment last longer

Please see our Large Storage page for more information and don’t hesitate to call us with any questions regarding this application.

Installing Before Winter

There always seems to be so much pressure and panic at this time to get a building before winter. The only thing that is important to get done sooner then later is the foundation work. There will be lots of decent weather days between now and Christmas to get the job done.

If you think that it is too late to get it done and you will simply wait until next spring, please remember that you said the same thing last spring (or even a few months ago) and as usual the busyness of life got in the way. Give us a call today to see how you can get that foundation taken care of before freeze up.

For those of you who want to get the structure up now and cover it in the spring, I urge you to cover the building sooner then later for a couple of reasons. First is that there will be lots of other things vying for your time in the spring and secondly, the more snow you have on that spot which has to melt, the more moisture you will have in the building. The more moisture you have in the building the more condensation issues you will have. You want to give that ground the most time possible to dry up before you need to start using the building.

In my humble opinion, even though putting the cover on in late fall or early winter is more difficult and not pleasant, the benefits of having more time for the ground to dry, far outweigh the time spent to adjust the cover  in the spring

Structures on Blocks or Shipping Containers

There has often been the need to elevate structures to create more storage capacity. When the product being stored does not lend itself to stacking, such as salt, sand or soil, there is the added dimension of outward push on the wall. Not only does the pile push outwardly, but an operator scooping the product will create even greater push.

Storage containers and over sized concrete blocks are the economical solution for such a storage requirement. The weight and the stability which both the containers and blocks give, eliminates the need to anchor into the ground. Containers are often simply put on the ground. When going more then two layers with the blocks, there should be a concrete pad or special preparation of the soil to provide stability.

When choosing this foundation method, it is important to consider how and where the shelter will shed water and snow. The top of the wall or container must be sealed to the possibility of moisture going inside. The other thing that must be given proper consideration is that the shelter is able to deal with the extra wind load created by elevating the shelter this much. In most of these installations, the wind load on a building is at least double of what it would be if mounted on the ground.

Golf Cart and Equipment Storage

photo 3Another application that our structures are being increasingly used for is golf cart storage. These shelters provide golf course superintendants with economical winter protection for the carts and other equipment. During peak season these shelters service as maintenance areas for equipment and storage for fetilizer. Multi Shelter Buildings are very versatile and the same building can be used for multiple applications. Call today to discuss your requirements and we can help you find just the right structure for your needs.
