When you have tons of frac sand to store, you may be wondering what your best options are for long- or short-term storage. Fortunately, there are plenty of possibilities on the market today to help you find the best solution for your budget and storage needs.
Fracking would not be possible without frac sand. Referred to as ‘proppant’ in the oil and gas industry, frac sand is the material injected into the ground that allows for the fracture of rock layers and release of natural gas or oil. A drilling site will always require large quantities of frac sand, making the storage and protection of unused frac sand a top priority.
When your company works with frac sand, you need to have metric tons on hand to keep operations flowing smoothly at the job site, but that can introduce issues with both long- and short-term storage.
Here are two of the best storage facilities Edge Innovations offers for your frac and bulk sand handling needs.
The truss arch fabric building system offered by Edge Innovations is a bulk storage solution used in a wide variety of industries and it is among the most diverse fabric building structures available. Each truss arch is built with three essential components: the structural frame, the fabric, and the foundation. The design is simple to allow for quick construction and to eliminate the use of extra materials, which saves you money. Our truss arch fabric structures are also:
Easy To Maintain
You can easily maintain these temporary structures on site and simply clean them with water.
The truss arch fabric building options offered by Edge Innovations come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Running out of storage room? Our truss arch fabric buildings can be expanded to increase capacity size, saving you the stress of having to deal with expensive additions.

No matter the location of your job site, you will need to ensure that your materials are protected from the elements. The geodesic domes offered by Edge Innovations allow you to store large amounts of bulk sand while also providing the necessary protection from wind and precipitation.
Our temporary and permanent geodesic domes are designed using a thin-shell structure and structurally rigid triangular elements that evenly distribute stress throughout the whole frame. This unique engineering and minimal building material use makes our geodesic dome buildings strong and cost effective. Our geodesic domes are also:
The concave interior allows for natural airflow so hot and cool air evenly flows throughout the dome, keeping the temperature regulated inside.
Our geodesic domes are available in custom sizes up to 200 meters wide, allowing for a significant amount of storage capacity.
Our geodesic domes are built to last, we guarantee a lifespan ranging from 15-40 years.
