Prefab steel structure warehouse building usually composed of steel beams, steel columns, steel truss, and other components made of section steel and steel plates. Each part connected by welds, bolts, or rivets.
Why choose the Prefab Steel Structure Warehouse?
The primary function of the warehouse is to store goods, so the ample space is one of the characteristics of the warehouse. The steel structure warehouse combines this feature. The warehouse with a steel structure has a large span and a larger utilization area.
Steel structure buildings are light in weight and lighter than other types of buildings with the same strength. Besides, large-scale warehouses have large spans, and steel structures are just suitable for large-span buildings, such as factories, stadiums, and so on.
And also, the warehouse building needs are more urgent.
The most significant advantage of the steel structure warehouse building is that the construction period is shorter, the construction is more convenient, and the time and investment costs significantly reduced. Besides, with the development of the business or other factors, some steel structure warehouses will face the problem of relocating addresses.
Another advantage of the steel structure highlighted. Due to its lightweight, the metal warehouse relocation project will be more convenient and environmentally friendly and recyclable. In an era of severe air pollution, once the steel structure warehouse does not continue to use, it can still recycle without pollution.
The details of Prefab Steel Structure Warehouse Building:
The length, width, and height required for the steel warehouse building.
Usually, the construction area occupies about 70% of the land. For example, if your land area is 5000 square meters, then the building area is approximately 3,500 square meters, including warehouses, office buildings, etc.
The building area required by each country is different. Please refer to the local building regulations for details.
Crane runway system:
Do you need to install overhead cranes in your warehouse?
If a crane is required, please consider the height of the warehouse according to the specific lifting height.
What is the local weather condition? Whether there is a strong wind and snows in winter?
We need to calculate the wind load and snow load of the building to ensure the safety of the building, so you need to provide the local wind speed, km/h, or m/s. If there is snow in winter, please tell the thickness or weight of the snow.
If the warehouse needs thermal insulation, then thermal insulation wool needs to be laid on the walls and roof. We can provide glass wool or rock wool.
Doors and windows:
Do you need doors and windows for the warehouse?
We can provide aluminum windows.
We provided the door according to the request, rolling door, sliding door, and man door.
Parameters of single-story warehouse building:
Length: depends on your requirements.
Column spacing: generally 6m. According to your requirements, it can also be 7.5 meters, 9 meters, or 12 meters.
Span: generally 9-36 meters. We can design it as a single span, double-span, or multiple spans.
Height: 4.5-9 meters (no overhead crane installed in the warehouse)
When you need to install one or more overhead crane in your facility, you should specify the lifting capacity and height of the crane to determine the height of the warehouse building.
The attention to the design:
Focus on the load-bearing design
The design of the steel structure warehouse needs to consider the load-bearing design, such as withstanding rainwater, snow pressure, construction load, and maintenance load. And also, the design has to feel functional load-bearing capacity, material strength, thickness, and force transmission method requirements, load-bearing ability, cross-sectional characteristics of the version, etc.
The load-bearing problems of the steel structure warehouse design are well-considered to reduce the warehouse’s damage capacity. It is also a construction method for the daily maintenance of steel structure and extended service life.
Pay attention to lighting design
A good lighting effect is conducive to energy saving. Otherwise, indoor lighting is needed all day and night, which is undoubtedly an increase in energy consumption. The steel structure warehouse has to pay attention to the lighting design. Such as designing and arranging lighting panels at specific locations on the metal roof or installing lighting glass, using natural light as possible, and doing waterproof work at the same time to maximize the service life. Then it could get a good lighting effect.
The differences between the metal warehouse and traditional concrete warehouse?
As a primary storage facility, the warehouses classified according to the role of the warehouse in the commodity circulation process or the characteristics of goods. No matter how it divided, its essential function is to store. To cope with the different demands for warehouse construction in the market, in recent years, more and more steel structure warehouse buildings have risen on the ground, allowing many entrepreneurs to abandon the concrete structure construction model that has used for many years.
- The construction of the steel structure warehouse is rapid, and the emergency advantages are apparent, which can meet the sudden storage needs of the enterprise.
- The steel structure warehouse is dry construction, which has outstanding environmental protection advantages. It can reduce the impact of project construction on the environment and nearby residents, which is better than the wet construction of reinforced concrete buildings.
- Steel structure warehouses can save construction costs and workers’ costs, compared with traditional concrete warehouses. The cost of building a steel structure warehouse is 20% to 30% lower than a typical warehouse construction cost, and it is more secure and stable.
- The steel structure is light in weight, and the building materials used in the walls and roof are much lighter than those in brick-concrete walls and terracotta roofs, which can effectively reduce the overall weight of the steel structure warehouse without compromising its structural stability. At the same time, it can also reduce the transportation cost of components formed by off-site migration.
The advantages of Prefab Steel structure warehouse:
Steel construction has a more affordable price than wooden construction.
Faster design and construction process.
If your warehouse plan submitted to a steel structure manufacturer company, the building will be pre-designed and manufactured by experts. It makes the entire process from start to finish more economical, resulting in ready-made steel construction components that are shipped directly to the worksite.
It has reduced labor costs
Since the warehouse is mostly prefabricated, construction time can reduce by as much as 30% to 50% or more based on the experience level of the construction personnel. Time is money, so the faster you can build, the less money you spend on labor.
Reduce maintenance costs
Due to the low maintenance cost of the steel structure, the building owner saves general maintenance, repair, and replacement during the entire life of the building.
Steel structures can resist many common threats to wood, such as decay, mildew, pests, and fire. Moreover, the carefully designed steel structure is more resistant to wind, snow, and seismic activity. It is why steel structures can often be buildings that will not fall after a typhoon. Usually, when the community needs a disaster evacuation center, the city will turn to steel-framed gymnasiums, schools, and other municipal buildings, which they know are the most reliable and most resilient in the area.
The fewer structural obstacles the building requires, the more work area you can save for the company. Steel construction provides the largest architectural clear span on the market.
The span of the warehouse can step over 60 meters. There is no need to install any load-bearing poles or columns inside the building. It makes it easy to set up large-scale industrial-scale equipment and machines, as well as vehicles and personnel to move safely within the structure.
Eco-friendliness is not just a trend. Data shows that building owners and customers who buy products and services are increasingly demanding green buildings. The steel structure is a sustainable building product because it uses recycled materials in the production stage and is 100% recyclable at the end of its service life.
