Sand + Salt + Structure = ClearSpan!


The winter season has already begun in several portions of the United States. But as Winter Storm Boreas embarks on the eastern sector of the country — in time for Thanksgiving travel — municipalities and landscaping businesses alike will be fueling up their fleet and stocking up on sand and salt to combat Jack Frost’s wrath on our neighborhood roads and interstates.

To ensure maximum effectiveness of salt, or a salt/sand mixture, The Salt Institute recommends that the traction-control mixture remains in a covered structure. With economics and the environment in mind, several customers have turned to ClearSpan for this solution. When precipitation engages with salt and sand piles, it begins to dissolve. The end result is runoff into nearby waterways, wetlands and especially into ground water, which can substantially affect our everyday drinking water needs.

So let’s circle back as to why the versatility of ClearSpan Fabric Structures is second-to-none in the sand and salt business. By following the recommendations of The Salt Institute, we’ve identified some key features as to why our tension fabric buildings are exactly what you will need to cover your next load.
