Wood framed pole barns are limited to a maximum size of 110' wide.
Effective Size vs. Price = no bigger than 80' wide with 18' sidewalls
Our steel framed buildings are specifically engineered to your needs. A steel framed building is perfect for situations where: high ceilings are needed, building width exceeds 70', roof pitch needs to be at a minium, or a manufacturing process occurs in the building. Steel buildings are not required to have concrete floors, but then require buried steel cables. All door & window options available in the pole barns are available in the steel framed buildings. These buildings can be insulated with fiberglass rolls or better yet by using aluminum structural insulated panel systems (SIPs). Steel beam and rafter system are on 20' to 40' centers depending on the design of the building. There is no size maximum to these buildings.
Effective Size vs. Price = bigger than 80' wide
Ladder framed buildings are best when building on top of new or existing concrete, especially if the building is going to be insulated. Our ladder framed buildings are built on 4' centers. These buildings are cost efficient when a smaller building is desired that will be heated and insulated. The building height should be a maximum of 16' tall and no wider than 50'. Knee bracing is required.
