Salt Barns And Environmental Compliance
Toro salt barns will ensure compliance with the Environment Agency (EA) or Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) guidelines. Toro's salt barns are designed with the environment as a priority. Toro Shelters considers every aspect to protect the environment from salt pollution. Our salt barns are manufactured almost entirely from recyclable material and have an extremely low carbon footprint.
Correct Salt Barn Storage
Correctly storing salt will greatly increase its shelf life and ensure it remains compliant with regulations and standards BS 3247:2011. One of the main factors in achieving this is controlling moisture content. Unprotected salt can diminish by as much as 20% per year, which is not only costly but will also allow concentrated leachate to escape
into the environment, damaging fauna and flora - see the article on the best solution for salt storage, that combats this.
Toro Shelters Salt Barn Safety First Policy
All salt barns are designed in accordance with Eurocode design standards and in accordance with BS EN 1090-1. All of our structural steel is supplied
CE marked in accordance with UK regulations. Toro’s design philosophy ensures quality and safety are the first priorities. Over time we have developed this, in line with CDM regulations, to continually reduce risk in the
manufacturing and installation stages of the build. For example, Toro's operational staff now carry out more than 80% of the assembly at ground level, even for a custom salt barn with a 14m high apex.
Toro's salt storage buildings are designed to offer a safe and comfortable working environment for all parties involved. For example, sufficient space is recommended in and around the salt shed structure and retaining walls
for safe and easy inspection, maintenance and repair access. The fabric used to cover the salt storage building is supplied by the highest quality manufacturers in the world and is compliant with all relevant fire regulations.
Toro uses fabric that is self-extinguishing - they do not propagate ﬂames or cause burning droplets to fall.
