Steel panel buildings provide a sturdy and economical alternative to standard business and residential construction choices. Made of various degrees of high gauge steel, these structures can be ordered, designed, delivered and set up in any prepared area desired and provide a large variety of options for the owners. Providing for fittings such as doors, windows and ramps and compatible with masonry, wood or other metal products, steel panel buildings ensure a sound and stable structure for a variety of possible needs.
More economical than much of the standard construction seen today, these buildings can be prefabricated on the manufacturer’s site, disassembled, shipped and then reassembled by the ordering client. This cuts down on the usual installation costs associated with general construction schedules. Because they can be designed and ordered with simple plans in mind, these assembled structures can be purchased in basic models and then added to by the ordering client at a later date thus slashing upfront costs associated with common interior materials such as drywall or molding.
Due to the uncomplicated production of steel panel buildings, these structures can be custom designed for virtually any use. Often utilized by machine shops, religious organizations, trucking companies and recreation vehicle warehouses, these structures are quickly becoming popular among retailers and residential clients as well.
As store fronts, steel panel buildings can be accessorized using brick, wood or stone products to define the individual business uses. Entry arches, windows and awnings can be ordered and added upon installation to ensure the best customer comfort while entering or exiting the business. Larger designs can accommodate audience-sized venues for religious uses, large-scale meetings, musical productions and media events. Seating can be added upon installation and designed as a temporary option for either convenient changes or permanent accessory.
Residential orders can be utilized for recreational vehicle, boat or simple home storage uses for garden and garage items. These buildings offer both safety and security for valuable personal items as they provide fire and water resistance and can be fitted with security doors and windows for added peace of mind. Offering insulated panels for interior heating and cooling installation and control, drywall for a smooth and finished look as well as electrical and plumbing options, steel panel buildings offer the residential client a secure and attractive option for their most important items.
Since the introduction of environmentally responsible or “green” building has come to the forefront of current construction markets, steel panel buildings offer consumers the best option for an earth-friendly alternative to general construction practices and materials. Being made of recyclable steel, these buildings can be used and reused over again for any number of uses. While recycling traditional construction materials such as wood or masonry can be achieved, steel panels will retain their shape and integrity upon removal whereas other more standard products cannot. Steel panel buildings can be removed and reassembled using the same framing materials over and over again. This slashes reassembly costs as compared to general tear-downs associated with traditional building materials where only some, if any, of the materials can be reused or recycled in a cost-effective manner. When the structure is no longer needed, if desired, the entire building can be disassembled and all steel materials can be fully recycled and re-fabricated into other steel products.
Available in various gauges and molds, steel panels are designed to meet or exceed local building codes for wind, snow, heat and seismic activity. Steel, although strong and rigid, will still allow for movement due to changing weather patterns. While wood can often swell in the heat or cold and is not impervious to water intrusion, steel can withstand extreme temperatures and climate changes without changing or losing the integrity of its strength. While masonry and wood are susceptible to rodent and insect infestation, steel is not. Steel panel buildings are impervious against rotting as well as being resistant to mildew and mold issues which can be a common occurrence with standard construction materials.
With their long-lasting, environmentally-friendly construction coupled with their cost-effective assembly options, steel panel buildings are quickly becoming the preferred choice for both business and residential consumers.
