Prefabricated building trusses

Trussed Clear-Span Storage Buildings for Bulk Solids

Outperform the competition

With higher clearances, wider storage areas and stronger walls than other trussed storage buildings, our “High & Dry” clear-span trussed buildings outperform the competition while respecting your budget. Components are prefabricated in a quality-controlled environment, resulting in a better building constructed in less time … and making “High & Dry” the definition of a durable, affordable, high-performing bulk solids storage building.

Features and materials that benefit your operation and the environment

  • Specially strengthened arched trusses enable high clear-span interiors; they also allow for optional conveyor installation without the need for internal pillars, supports or beams
  • A special floor-wall joint design eliminates environmental concerns
  • A 20-feet wide by 30-feet high door is standard for easy loading
  • Roofed with 40-year warranted shingles
  • High-strength reinforced concrete retaining walls are built to last longer and stand up better to material pressures and equipment mishaps than wood retaining wall systems; walls are sealed to prevent corrosion

… all backed by one of the best-known and trusted names in the bulk solids storage building business.

Strong, smart and
affordable

High glulam arches allow tractors to dump at their full height without fear of hitting the building’s trusses. And the reinforced concrete sidewalls are built to withstand product and loader pressures – eliminating concerns about blowouts, which are common with wood wall designs.
