Agricultural Metal Buildings
There is a reason Agricultural Metal Buildings have been relied upon by the farming industry for decades. Their stability and versatility makes them the obvious choice for agricultural use. Whether you’re housing livestock, equipment, crops, workers, or your own family, the durability and reliability of steel architecture is proven to be the best long-term and safest choice when it comes to your agricultural needs.
Agricultural Metal Buildings
REASONS METAL BUILDINGS ARE ONE OF THE SAFEST OPTIONS FOR YOUR AGRICULTURAL BUSINESS:
Protection from Mother Nature – metal permits for substantially more bend before it breaks which is why it withstands earthquakes, tornados, and hurricane force winds.
Inaccessible to trespassers – metal structure is a deterrent for intruders.
Able to withstand daily wear and tear – metal is designed to withstand daily wear and tear that will cause destruction on traditional building material.
Naturally fire resistant – metal is a fire-resistant material, different from a wood building, a steel building fire will spread much slower.
Resistant to mold, rot, and insect infestation – Mold essentially feeds on any organic material, as long as humidity and oxygen are present. Metal is inorganic so mold cannot feed on it.
More About Metal Structures
There are five main types of structural components that make up a steel frame – tension members, compression members, bending members, combined force members and their connections. Tension members are usually found as web and chord members in trusses and open web steel joists. Ideally tension members carry tensile forces, or pulling forces, only and its end connections are assumed to be pinned. Pin connections prevent any moment (rotation) or shear forces from being applied to the member.
ADVANTAGES OF METAL BUILDINGS OVER OTHER BUILDING MATERIALS, SUCH AS WOOD AND CONCRETE:
Steel is an Eco Friendly product; it is architecturally sound and manufactured to strict specifications and tolerances. It is also energy efficient. Any excess material is 100% recyclable.
Metal doesn’t easily warp, buckle, twist or bend, and is therefore easy to modify and offers design flexibility. It is also easy to erect.
Metal is cost effective and rarely fluctuates in price.
Metal allows for improved quality of construction and less maintenance, while offering improved safety and resistance.
With the propagation of mold and mildew in agricultural buildings, using steel minimizes these infestations. Mold needs moist, porous material to grow. Steel studs do not have those problems.
