Steep roof slope

Well roofed - well stored

From a flat roof to a steep roof slope, we consider the type of storage building you need as well as the different types of business requirements. 

A storage hall, typically for bulk storage, has to suit the purpose and be well thought out. Depending on whether you want to store bulk goods, raw materials, or merchandise, we can design your hall and roofing specifically for your stored goods.

Optimizing a building’s roof slope expands the interior space, adds clearance and allows natural ventilation. Our building system can offer spans with no obstruction, combined with high eaves.

Smart ventilation

Control the temperature, humidity and purity of the air

Do you need a specific moisture and humidity control inside your building due to the nature of the goods stored? Your building must be designed, built and operated so that vulnerable materials do not get wet, or damp materials dry out quickly while successfully providing an appropriate quantity and quality of outdoor air, lower energy costs and easier maintenance.

If you need a ventilation system, Astron can provide the whole HVAC system design (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). We provide a natural ventilation solution to deliver fresh air into the building; if you need an additional ventilation system, we can provide the supports (platforms for the HVAC units), ventilation ducts etc.
