When preparing to construct a steel structure building, be sure to consider and select the appropriate roof type and material.…
Steel structure building currently the most widely used building system in the world. The reason is that the steel structure has many advantages and can meet people’s needs more than traditional buildings. One of the benefits is that metal buildings can customize. Customize pre-engineered metal buildings to suit your needs and make a difference. When you want to build a warehouse, industrial workshop, barn, or aircraft hangar. In addition to the primary structural system, you can also choose additional features to make your building more beautiful and comfortable.
Roof structure of Pre-engineered Metal Buildings
Our commonly used design form is a portal frame structure system, with pillars supporting the roof metal beam. The structure of the roof can have different design requirements. The first is the slope. The slope of the roof is usually 1:12. You can also choose different slopes according to the amount of local precipitation.
In addition to the slope, the roof can also choose to use a single-slope or double-slope. Single-slope roofs are suitable for buildings with smaller widths, because the roof rainwater flows through a short distance, so the roof will not store water. The single-slope roof is easy to cause roof water storage, which is not conducive to roof drainage.
In addition to the portal rigid steel frame, we can also design the roof as a truss structure. The roof trusses welded with angle steel or square tube, save steel, and reduce costs. Roof trusses can make into whole roof trusses, or they can divide into two parts and weld on-site, which mainly depends on the width of the building.
Doors and windows
There are also different choices for the doors of different steel structure buildings. Large folding doors should use for hangars. Rolling shutters or sliding doors often used for garages and warehouses, which depend on the owner’s preference. It can also include walk-in doors, which are accessible for personnel to enter and often located at safety exits.
We can provide aluminum alloy windows with different profiles and glass, such as broken bridge aluminum profile, Low-E tempered glass, or laminated glass. Our windows include sliding windows and casement windows.
Doors and windows can make your building not only meet the basic functional requirements but also increase comfort and make the building more humane.
Roofing and wall materials of Pre-engineered Metal Buildings
You can choose different roofing and wall materials according to the local climate. We can provide corrugated single color sheets or sandwich panels. You can also select the metal color sheet with insulation cotton.
The Metal cladding is generally 0.5mm and 0.6mm thick. We can provide different profiles to ensure that the metal sheet has sufficient strength to withstand the impact of wind speed on the building.
The sandwich panel divides into The EPS sandwich panel, glass wool sandwich panel, and polyurethane sandwich panel according to the material. Standard thickness: 50mm, 75mm, 100mm.
Metal color sheet plus insulation cotton, which is the more commonly used for metal buildings, the glass fiber wool under the metal sheet as thermal insulation materials
Size of Pre-engineered Metal Buildings
There is no specific size for the steel structure building. The size mainly depends on the customer’s requirements. The length, width, and height designed according to the needs of the owner. We also can recommend some building sizes for your reference.
