There’s a reason the landscape of most light industrial zones is dotted with steel warehouse buildings. Steel structures are faster to build, sturdy enough to guard their contents from any threat, economical to build and maintain, and relatively affordable to heat and cool.
Steel is an inexpensive building material when you compare it to wood, stone, or brick – and while it’s not quite as simple as dropping a building wherever you need one, steel warehouses have some of the fastest build times of any structure. The faster you can build your warehouse, the faster you can stock it and start using it to generate revenue for your business.
There’s a reason we’ve been in the steel warehouse business for more than two decades. Not only do we have the experience and expertise to help our customers get exactly the steel structure they need for their specific purpose and site, we also have a reputation for the highest quality control system.
With steel warehouses, the name of the game is efficiency and strength. The best warehouses are economical to build, maintain, and use – and strong enough to protect everything housed within.
Pre-Engineered steel buildings offer significant advantages over conventional structural steel buildings
The term “Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings” is not well known to the engineering groups who traditionally design their buildings with conventional structural steel using standard hot rolled sections from product manufacturers. The comparison below is intended to introduce and inform engineering design groups of the pre-engineered steel building concept, its high versatility and practicality, and its disadvantages to Designers and Contractors.The pre-engineered steel building concept is widely used in the United States, as well as in many of the industrialized countries. It consists of a complete steel-framed building system, with components pre-designed to fit together in a vast variety of combinations to meet the unique requirements of specific end uses. Sub-Systems include anchor bolts, structural framing, insulation, roof and wall cladding, mezzanines or floor including steel floor decking, windows, doors, ventilation systems, canopies, overhangs and fascias.Pre-engineered steel buildings can be used for permanent installations from around 400 square feet (36 square meters) upwards, for one story and two story construction.
