Frame Types

05 May 2015

Pre-engineered steel buildings are extremely versatile structures and can be designed to suit any layout. Below are a list of the different frame types available that can be used independently or in combination.

CLEAR SPAN frames with tapered columns and rafters.  An economical frame solution for clear spanning requirements and where interior columns may be a hinderence.

Width: 30’ to 300’ and over – Height: 10’ to 120’ and over – Standard roof slope: 1:12

 

SINGLE SLOPE frames with standard rigid frames where the building requires a higher side wall for door clearances, snow shed to one side only, interior floor clearances , and/or exterior visual appearance.

Width: 15’ to 120’ and over – Height: 10’ to 75’ and over – Standard roof slope: 1:12

 

INTERIOR COLUMN frames are economical frame solutions for larger spanned buildings where interior rows of columns are not objectionable.

SINGLE SLOPE with interior columns is an economical frame solution where this roof profile is desirable on longer spans.  This profile is suitable for multi-tenant occupancies with room for mezzanine floors.

LEAN-TO frame extensions are a most economical way to increase building width.  Lean-to’s may be added on to any of the frame types.
