When people hear the phrase “storage buildings,” they typically think of big, warehouse-like structures made from wood or iron. What people don’t usually think of are the months of labor-intensive construction that goes into creating them. Traditional wood and red iron buildings are often costly and time-consuming undertakings. Customizing such buildings to certain specifications can also be a lengthy process that adds more time and cost. ClearSpan storage buildings, on the other hand, take as little as days to assemble and can easily be customized to any size, length or specification.
A ClearSpan storage building can be constructed up to 300 feet wide and at any length. This is partly due to the fact that it can be built on a variety of foundation options, including pre-cast, poured concrete or ClearSpan’s Helical Anchoring System. Helical anchors are an especially beneficial option for temporary projects, as they allow a structure to be taken down, transported and reconstructed quickly. Although helical anchors are classified as temporary, they are durable enough to remain permanent.
The sheer versatility of ClearSpan structures truly makes them advantageous to virtually any type or quantity of storage need. Buildings are available in fabric, metal or hybrid style, which incorporates both fabric and metal into one innovative structure. ClearSpan storage buildings have been used for an impressive variety of applications, including portable carports, salvage businesses, manufacturing facilities and bulk storage facilities. Upon request, storage structures can be outfitted with doors, shutters, lights, heaters and polymax boards.
