Red Iron trusses come in 20' width to 140' width and 8' and up on the legs. Using these trusses and 26 gauge Hi Rib panels, you are able to erect a high quality commercial building. All buildings come with plat layout signed by an engineer.
Steel Framed construction has been in existence for many years, mainly used in the construction of large skyscrapers, like the Empire State Building, and large industrial buildings. This technology has been adapted for use in smaller scale residential and commercial construction using "Red Iron" Steel (which also does not rust).
The benefits of steel are enormous:
Protection from Strong Winds / Hurricanes / Tornados - Steel Framing can withstand extremely high wind loads (150+ MPH).
Mold Resistant - Steel Framed Buildings are made of Red Iron, and do not rust, do not rot, mold or deform when in water for prolonged periods of time, as traditional homes would.
Fire Resistance - Steel Framed Buildings do not burn, since steel is non-combustible, unlike traditional buildings, which burn in minutes. This can lead to much lower insurance costs.
Termite Resistant - Termites cant eat though Steel Framed Buildings, unlike traditional buildings, which always have problems with termites, and have to be treated for termite protection continuously, which can be expensive.
Earthquake Resistant - Steel Framed Buildings, due to their structural strength, have greater survival expectancy in Earthquakes than do traditional buildings.
Strength - Steel Framed Buildings do not warp, bend, bow, twist or buckle as traditional buildings do. This saves you money and repair headaches.
Ease of Design - all designs are first computer generated, and then manufactured to the exact specifications desired.
Accuracy of Building - Steel Framed Buildings are designed with CAD (Computer Assisted Design) software, and are assembled to exact specifications. There is no bending, sagging, or deformation in walls, floors, or roofs, as would be with traditional buildings.
No Wasted Materials - Since Steel Framed Buildings are designed on computers, there is no wasted material, since the Steel is manufactured to the exact computer specifications, unlike traditional buildings, which always generate lots of waste in the building process. This saves money in terms of waste collection on the construction site. Steel is considered a "Green Building Material", and in fully environmentally friendly. Any scrap material that is left over is 100% recyclable.
Speed of Construction - It takes on average 4 days to erect a Light Gauge (Cold-Formed) Steel Framed Buildings, a huge savings in terms of cost of labor as compared to traditional construction, which can take weeks to erect.
Beauty - Steel Framed Buildings look exactly the same as traditional buildings, and can be designed to be as beautiful as you demand. The use of Steel Frames removes the need for Load Bearing Walls, which are needed in traditional buildings, due to the inherent strength of Steel. This permits interior design flexibility - large open spaces, long roof spans, vaulted ceilings, cathedral ceilings, and many other designs which would be costly and sometimes impossible in traditional buildings.
Cost – The Cost of a Steel Frame Buildings is equivalent to a traditional buildings of the same design, and since the erection process is much faster, there is money saved in terms of building costs.
Buildings for a Lifetime - Because of the strength of Steel, our buildings are made to last.
