A Guide to Prefabricated Steel Buildings

Prefabricated steel buildings are a very common alternative to typical wood and brick constructions. More often than not, these prefabricated steel buildings are less expensive and more useful than other structures. The beauty of prefabrication is that whatever building you decide to construct, all materials are cut to exact lengths and widths at the warehouse, and shipped to your location ready to be assembled. Below is a guide of some of the most common prefabricated steel buildings offered on the market today.

 

Garage

Garages are a great addition to your home or property. Prefabricated steel garages can be made custom to the vehicles that need to be stored, and the tasks that need to be done inside. Garages vary in size and are very customizable. They can be easily insulated and are commonly doubled as a workshop area, housing your tools and equipment as well.

 

Storage

A common use of prefabricated steel buildings is for storage. Like garages, these storage buildings can be designed to custom sizes, with options such as doors, windows and insulation. As well, these storage buildings can be designed for clear span capabilities to easily move large materials in and out of storage.

These structures can be designed to accommodate commercial warehousing while also housing office space for day to day business. By combining both warehouse and office space into one efficient building, business owners are experiencing higher efficiency and cut costs.

Prefabricated steel farm buildings are much longer lasting than its wood predecessor, are easily insulated to store livestock, and can store both equipment and products inside away from weathering. Like any other prefabricated steel building, agricultural designs can be customized to meet specific farming needs.

Because of an arena’s overall width, steel buildings are the superior choice due to their strong truss designs and the buildings limited need for center support beams.

 

Aviation

Aircraft hangars are almost always constructed of steel. Although the best designs are those that are specific to the type of aircraft you need to house.
