Arnold explained, “When the recycled glass gets wet from snow and rain, it creates delivery issues to our furnaces and requires extra energy to melt.” Arnold needed to find a building that would provide storage for this enormous amount of glass, and protect it from the elements.
“Owens Corning picked ClearSpan structures because of their durability, ease of installation and mobility,” said Arnold. Due to the quality of the structures, there are no longer any issues with the recycled material getting wet, no matter what the weather conditions are.
Owens Corning has experienced increased efficiency and savings due to the addition of their ClearSpan buildings. According to Arnold, “The structures’ installation was smooth, with excellent technical support provided, and has proven to meet all of our needs.”
