Steel conducts electricity much better than wood.  A properly grounded commercial metal building resists lightning damage, as the current passes harmlessly into the ground. An inorganic material,… Read More

Wide Open Spaces for Floor Plan Flexibility Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material.  Consequently, pre-engineered commercial steel buildings allow much wider, unobstructed interior areas for commercial building projects. How Clear Span Floor Space Enhances Commercial Steel Buildings This ability to span long distances without interior support columns is called “clear span.” Clear span steel framing supports the load of its own weight without the need to “prop up” the framing with load-bearing interior walls.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, about 170,000 new commercial buildings are constructed each year.  Steel framing accounts for 70%-80% of those buildings.
