Recently, we at Kit Buildings Direct were contracted to install a farm storage building for asphalt by an existing customer. The customer’s request for a new asphalt farm storage building included an attached lean-to to act as a loading bay. We provided the customer with a complete design plan along with their quote before we began installation. This design plan included a detailed GA Drawing (General Arrangement Drawing) to represent the scope of the storage building.

We managed this project from the design phase through to the erection on site.

What is Asphalt?
Asphalt is a sticky, black, and highly viscous liquid or semi-solid form of petroleum.
What is Asphalt used for?
Asphalt is used primarily for road construction as glue or binder. It is mixed with aggregate particles to create asphalt concrete. Its water-resistant properties also make asphalt an ideal roofing material.
How Should Asphalt be Stored?
Whilst asphalt is petroleum-based and thus capable of withstanding high temperatures, it is best to store asphalt-based products in a cool environment no higher than 32-35 degrees Celsius. If asphalt is stored in temperatures higher than this, it may soften and become less durable as a result.
Why are our steel storage buildings suitable for storing Asphalt based products?
Our steel buildings are designed to include effective ventilation. So we can guarantee the internal environment of the farm storage building remains dry and maintains an ambient temperature suitable for specific applications.
