Inside Dumping & Operation

The Hi-Arch Gambrel has a minimum 30' clearance so that tractor-trailers can dump salt and other materials under cover throughout the full length of the building.

What benefits does this give you?

  • IT PREVENTS having to dump the salt in the yard and then push it in.

  • IT PREVENTS needing a conveyor to fill the building to capacity.
  • IT PREVENTS WEATHER EXPOSURE, and therefore:
    prevents lumps and crusts
    saves time since you don't have to break up the salt
    reduces wear and tear on equipment caused by lumps

  • IT PREVENTS RUNOFF from outdoor piles

  • IT PREVENTS DAMAGE to ground water, surface water, wells, soils, and vegetation

  • IT PREVENTS LIABILITY PROBLEMS caused by runoff

  • IT PREVENTS DOUBLE HANDLING, since you don't have to spend time moving salt from the yard to the building

  • IT PREVENTS DELAYS in serving your taxpayers, since material is stored dry and ready to go

And how do these benefits save you money?

  • YOU SAVE MAINTENANCE DOLLARS BY PREVENTING SPREADER JAMS. Outside dumping results in wet/frozen material which clogs your machinery repeatedly. This drives up your maintenance and repair costs.

  • YOU SAVE MORE PAYROLL DOLLARS BY PREVENTING DOWNTIME. You can eliminate hours spent to break through frozen crusts, unclog spreaders, etc.

  • YOU SAVE CAPITAL, OPERATING, AND MAINTENANCE DOLLARS BY ELIMINATING CONVEYORS. Since you can dump directly inside, you don't need an expensive conveyor to fill the building.

  • YOU SAVE LEGAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL COSTS - WHICH CAN BE ENORMOUS - BY PREVENTING RUNOFF. Environmental contamination by salt can lead to investigations, citations, lawsuits, and expensive efforts to compensate for and correct the problem. Preventing runoff can save you money and headaches -- and it makes you a good neighbor, too.
