Metal Building System Components
Metal building construction projects require several components, including:
Primary Framing Systems
Primary frames or “‘red-iron” are designed for full bay loading and span the width of the building. The frame systems include clear span, multi-span and lean-to frames.
Secondary Framing Systems
Open web trusses, purlins, girts, eave struts, base members and gable angels support the wall and roof panels and transfer the load to the frames.
Bracing systems are used between structural members to transfer seismic, snow, wind and crane movement from end walls and side walls to the foundation.
There are many options available from metal roof and wall panels, commercial roll-up doors, backup wall systems, masonry veneer or other traditional materials to meet building energy code compliance.
A custom-engineered metal building system is cost-effective, but still provides you with a range of design choices that can provide the functional and visual attributes your building requires. Complex or simple, merely functional or visually appealing, a metal building system provides numerous solutions for building needs.
