Saving Energy with Commercial Metal Buildings

HOW BETTER INSULATION FOR STEEL BUILDINGS DRAMATICALLY IMPROVES ENERGY BILLS Non-residential structures constructed with pre-engineered commercial metal buildings can reap huge energy savings— with the right insulation package.  In fact, proper insulation for steel buildings can provide decades of energy savings. Deeper Wall Cavities in Commercial Metal Buildings Insulation packages for commercial pre-engineered steel buildings are environmentally “green.” Investing in premium-grade metal building insulation saves natural resources— and the greenbacks of the property owners. The walls of pre-engineered metal buildings are by… Read More

Go Green with a Pre-engineered Metal Building

HOW GREEN STEEL BUILDINGS HELP SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT A pre-engineered metal building uses the most recycled substance in the world: steel. For the environmentally conscious, making "green" steel buildings using metal to frame a commercial building is a no-brainer. Using A Pre-Engineered Metal Building Saves Trees With Eco-Friendly Building Materials For example, let’s say you are planning an 80’ x 125’ single-story commercial building.  The structure would require 200-250 trees to produce the lumber for the framing.  That is about… Read More

Building Green with Commercial Steel Buildings

Pre-engineered Steel Buildings: The Eco- Friendly Choice Did you know pre-engineered commercial steel buildings help protect the environment? Today American commercial builders and investors place great importance on using “green” sustainable building materials.  According to one Gallup Poll, 73% of Americans admit being concerned about the environment. But is steel a green, sustainable building material?  You bet it is. Commercial Steel Buildings and Recycling Steel is the most recycled material in the entire world. The Steel Recycling Institute reports 82… Read More

Pre-engineered Commercial Steel Buildings

Greater Protection from the Elements The strength of steel delivers many benefits for the commercial market.  Pre-engineered commercial steel buildings deliver excellent defense from the elements. The Strength of Pre-engineered Commercial Steel Buildings A steel-framed building is stronger than conventional wood framing.  It offers greater protection from hurricane-forced winds, heavy snows, and earthquakes. 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

The Clearspan Advantage of Pre-engineered Commercial Steel Buildings

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. RHINO prefabricated… Read More

Why Pre-engineered Steel Commercial Buildings Dominate the Market

Today, builders frame all superstructures like high-rise apartments, bridges, and multi-storied office buildings with steel.  Those huge, gigantic edifices would not be possible without the superior strength of steel.  Steel commercial buildings lead the low-rise, one and two-story market, too. 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.
