When it comes to building tire shops, auto shops and other automotive service centers, metal buildings offer several key advantages over other low rise construction solutions. The metal buildings from Toro Steel provide a cost-effective, reliable, efficient, and durable solution for commercial automotive facilities. Our prefabricated storage buildings are the most versatile and dependable structure for your unique needs.
Reasons to Choose a Metal Storage Building for an Auto Shop
Due to the nature of work, auto repair and service shops require lots of room to work efficiently. None of the building options available on the market today offers more unobstructed space to work than clear span metal buildings.
Height is also an important factor in an auto repair shop and storage building. Crucial machinery and tools such as hydraulic lifts require lots of headroom to lift cars, trucks, and parts into position safely. For this, the ceilings to be higher than average, and there needs to be plenty of open floor space. Steel is an incredibly strong material that allows for high roofs and can be designed in ways that do not require many interior supporting columns if any.
Another important factor in an auto shop is having large enough openings to safely get trucks, cars, parts, and machinery in and out of the building. Metal structures have the strength required to accommodate and support these large openings. At Toro, our buildings have a wide range of customization options, including door sizes, styles, and lifting mechanisms to suit your unique needs.
The most significant benefit of prefabricated metal buildings over traditional construction solutions is the promise of quicker and easier assembly. Unlike conventional options that require extensive processing and preparations on-site, all the framing of a prefabricated metal building arrives at your location cut to the exact measurements and ready to assemble. This typically reduces construction time by at least 33% when compared to wood or brick structures. Smaller, more simple buildings can be completed with a small team, while larger structures can be finished quickly with some professional help.
Many of the items found or used in automotive service shops contain gasoline and oil, making them more prone to fire. For a traditional wooden shop, this can be a big challenge. Metal, however, is non-combustible. As such, it will not catch fire or add fuel to a fire that has started elsewhere.
Metal buildings from Toro are incredibly strong, durable, and reliable. They are designed to meet the wind and snow loads in your area and are also resistant to mold, pests, and lightning strikes.
Metal buildings provide cost savings throughout ownership. Prefabricated metal buildings take significantly less time and effort to assemble when compared to traditional structures, reducing construction costs and allowing you to get your business open faster. Steel buildings also require minimal maintenance, saving you thousands of dollars in maintenance and repair costs over the lifetime of your structure.
Since steel and metal storage buildings are less prone to damage from elements that can severely impact another structure, you are often eligible for discounts on your insurance premiums depending on your location and provider.
Advancements in the design and manufacture of steel and metal buildings have allowed them to be incredibly versatile, with a range of customization options. Straight wall buildings are also available in a range of colours to suit your location or aesthetic needs. As your business grows and your needs evolve, metal buildings allow you to modify the layout to accommodate this. Arch buildings also let you expand your shop as needed by installing additional arches.
