Manufacturing and Warehouses

One of the most familiar and recognizable uses for metal buildings is in the construction of manufacturing facilities. It's no wonder metal buildings are chosen time and time again by businesses who need increased capacity or more space for making and storing the goods that feed the growing economy.

The long span framing, layout options and strength of a metal building's steel framing system allow for the inclusion of overhead cranes and offer an almost unlimited array of configurations for interior spaces. Metal buildings may include interior columns, depending on your desired building layout and the needs of your plant's processes; or clearspans provide wide open spaces for warehouse and equipment and large-scale manufacturing.

Long-life exterior paint and Galvalume™ coil coatings add years of reliable, low-maintenance service to your facility. Reflective factory coated cool paint coatings last longer than other cool roof solutions because metal roofs are self-cleaning and don't accumulate dirt like flat membrane roofs do. Cool roofs can help to keep interior temperatures down in the summer months, which means lower operational costs and higher margins for your business.

If you're looking for a long-term solution with low maintenance for your storage, warehouse, or distribution facility, look no further. Metal building systems have proven to be the most economical solution for both large- and small-scale storage and distribution, both for commercial and consumer products.

Recognized by building codes to be non-combustible, metal buildings can be designed with nearly unlimited interior space, which is possible thanks to fire-rated designs that are specific to metal building construction (as well as the integration of sprinklers). Large warehouse operators already know the benefits of using metal building solutions. They understand the simplicity of the one-stop construction process and the ease of operation that metal buildings bring.
