Our buildings are manufactured from cold rolled steel sections and are of portal frame design. Each portal frame consists of two columns and two rafters, joined together by brackets at the eave and at the apex. Then the portal frames are linked together with side girts and roof purlins. When two portal frames linked together by side girts and roof purlins bays are formed, the more bays the longer the building.
Buildings constructed in this manner are strong, durable, inexpensive and easy to erect. It allows relatively small sections to span long distances (up to 25M clear span). In turn, this cuts the cost of materials and due to the reduction in weight, it allows for innovative construction techniques to be employed. This will result in shorter construction times, thereby reducing the erection costs.
Due to the shape of the steel sections used, our buildings can be packed into very compact bundles. This will allow a large building to be transported in a relatively compact package. Thereby significantly reducing transportation costs.
Another advantage of using this construction method is that the manufacturer can cut each section to an exact size then punched and folded. This eliminates wastage and saves cutting on site. All together this means that the material can be delivered as a kit ready to be bolted together.
The end result is a superior building, engineered to exacting British Standards. It is easy to build, extremely strong and attractive to the eye, and above all, easy on the pocket. It allows us to use a state of the art computer design system that allows our customers, with the aid our expert sales team, an enormous amount of flexibility to design a building to suit your needs.
