Imagine being able to just walk out of your house and saddle up for a ride, regardless of the weather. Building your own metal riding arena creates a close, convenient area to exercise your animals out of the weather and eliminates the cost of sharing or renting a facility. Construction costs may sound daunting, but there are four benefits of a riding arena that will make it not only affordable but highly desirable.
Girts and purlins, those secondary framing members that are bolted to the main steel frame or clipped in place, are the pieces that secure the wall and roof panels. Girts support wall panels, while purlins support roof panels.
When you purchase pre-fabricated steel metal buildings, roofs and canopies, they typically come with a factory coating that is very hard and abrasion-resistant. Some clients choose not to paint these surfaces because they’re satisfied with their look and performance as is. However, others prefer to paint the surfaces to further protect them, give them a different look or improve their environmental performance.
Selecting a steel airplane hangar offers all the same benefits that pre-engineered metal buildings offer to other industries and needs. With an expensive asset like an airplane to protect, you want something that is easy to construct and difficult for Mother Nature to destruct. In addition, steel buildings don't catch on fire easily, either.
There are many designs and types of cranes at varying lift capacities and service classifications. Here are some considerations to help you choose the best one for your application.
Cranes are used at construction and manufacturing sites to move heavy loads from one point to another. Cranes are actually systems consisting of crane, trolley, hoist, crane rails, runway beams, supports, fasteners, stops, and bumpers.
One of the best reasons for constructing a steel building is for the ease of later expansion. The ability to expand can make your building much more profitable.
A metal building's frame is one of its most important components, yet choosing a frame type can be one of the most daunting tasks for building owners. We're taking a look at the key considerations behind choosing any steel building frame.
Installing the new metal roof onto your new or existing building is exciting. A roof will make the structure look more complete. But before diving in and, preferably, before you ever built a new structure or tore the roof off the old one, you asked some important questions during the planning process.
