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.
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.
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.
Businesses are beginning to opt for a prefabricated steel building for multiple reasons. 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.
For many years farmers would build wooden barns, and they lasted a fairly long time. Today, agricultural professionals are opting for a steel farm building instead. 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.

A container cover is a simple and practical roofing solution for your business.

With no requirement to have beams, interior support, or trusses, a container cover allows you to have a clear, open space that you can use in any way.
Container covers work using your own containers upon which our cover is mounted using our specially designed mounting plates. The containers double as the walls of the structure, while the space in between can be used for anything you choose. Most people use this open space as garages, workshops, equipment storage, and other commercial applications. You can also opt to have end walls, thereby creating a more traditional, secure, enclosed space. Depending on what you need, the container covers can include additional accessories like man doors, skylights, insulation, ventilation, or shipping doors. Toro container covers are available for a wide variety of widths from 20’ through 60’.

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.
