Title: Features of Steel Buildings

Features of Steel Buildings
Steel buildings and Metal buildings are great for
a lot of different uses this includes all
commercial as well as residential uses. Steel
buildings or Metal buildings can be assembled
quite easily without the need of heavy duty
machinery, welding skills, and specialized
carpentry as they come with some standard
features that make assembling steel buildings
very easy and simple. This being one of the
reasons that these buildings have increased
hugely in popularity over recent years in both
the private and the commercial sector.
Standard Features of Steel Buildings Specific
features of different steel buildings are likely
to vary from company to company here are some of
the major features of steel and metal buildings
that are standard to most of the manufacturers.
Primary Framing The framing or the basic main
frame is the backbone of any building. The main
inner frame takes the majority of the load of
steel buildings and thus it should be very
strong. Main frames are made of solid single Beam
construction, standard framing also includes all
end-wall frames and columns in addition to main
frames. These are mostly hot rolled or cold
formed depending on individual requirements.
Bracing Steel buildings or Metal buildings face
a lot of extensive pressure due to torsion and
compression. To relieve this extreme pressure,
bracing is utilised in steel buildings. All steel
buildings support a standard Flange Bracing and
may have an additional bracing system such as the
diaphragm bracing and X bracing depending on the
weight that the building is expected to
bear. Drawings and Plans Different Building
manuals, assembly plans and erection drawings are
provided with all steel and metal buildings for
easy and perfect assembling of the structures.
Secondary Framing Most of the steel buildings
come with secondary standard framing components
such as roof purlins and wall girts. These all
are designed according to the specifications
provided by individual consumers. Fasteners  All
metal buildings are provided high quality
fasteners for primary and secondary frame
connections. Different types of fasteners that
are self-drilling ensure quick and fast drilling
and also help in reducing damages to the surface
by making all the drill points slip-resistant.
Closures and Sealants Neoprene strips and plugs
with self-adhesive backing along with eave and
base closures and sealants for roof side laps are
all usually used with the standard steel and
metal buildings to provide proper sealing of the
buildings and to ensure water tightness. Sheeting
and Roof Panels Although most steel buildings
and Metal buildings come with steel roof sheeting
made from high strength material so that it can
withstand any form of damages from impacts.
These are the basic features of steel building
that are standard in the industry. Any other
metal building may be provided with different
optional features or you can choose from steel
building accessories to create the particular
type of look that you intend for your steel
