Less is More with Pre-engineered Metal Buildings

Less Hassles and Headaches with Steel Building Systems Pre-engineered metal buildings distill the building process to its simplest form. Steel building systems by design eliminate the wasted materials, wasted time, and wasted motion so often a part of building. Whatever the application, choosing a dependable, easy-to-erect prefabricated metal building takes the stress out of construction. Why Less is MORE with Pre-engineered Steel Buildings It sounds like an oxymoron, but less really is more with RHINO's simple steel building kits. LESS… Read More

Steel Buildings: Think Outside the Box- Part 5

Receding an Exterior Wall Changes the Look of Metal Buildings In Part 4 of our series on “Steel Buildings: Think Outside the Box” we covered adding pop-out sections of framing. Pop-outs protrude outside the main structure, breaking up the boxy look of pre-engineered steel buildings. Another way to add visual interest to a metal building is to do the exact opposite. Instead of extending an exterior wall, consider receding an exterior wall, sort of a “pop-in” section. Practical Reasons for Indenting an… Read More

Steel Buildings: Think Outside the Box- Part 4

Adding Pizzazz to Metal Buildings with “Pop-Out” Framing The most economical shape for pre-engineered steel buildings remains the basic rectangle. While practical for most industrial, agricultural, and storage applications, commercial enterprises sometime require more visual interest. In this series on customizing steel buildings, we have divulged several ways to lose the “boxy” look of metal buildings to add eye appeal. So far, we have covered: • Part 1: Changing the Roofline • Part 2: Adding Roofline Extensions • Part 3:… Read More

Steel Buildings: Think Outside the Box- Part 3

Customizing the Exteriors of Pre-engineered Metal Buildings Steel buildings do not have to look like steel buildings. There are many ways to enhance the exterior of a structure to lose the “boxy” look of a metal building. In parts one and two of this series, we offered suggestions for changing the roofline and profile of a steel building to create a more traditional look. The versatility steel buildings doesn’t stop there. Any exterior building material available for other building systems… Read More

Steel Buildings: Think Outside the Box- Part 2

Roofline Extensions Add Flair to Pre-engineered Metal Buildings In part one of this series on steel buildings, we discussed changing the roof pitch and gable rooflines versus hip rooflines. You can also “dress up” metal buildings by adding eave overhangs or canopies. In standard pre-engineered steel buildings, the roofline ends flush with sidewalls. That is adequate for many applications, where the “boxy” look of the building does not matter. For example, agricultural barns and industrial warehouses find this basic steel… Read More

Steel Buildings: Think Outside the Box- Part 1

Adding Personality to a Metal Building by Changing the Roofline In pre-engineered steel buildings, nothing is more affordable than a basic box. Most agricultural, aviation, and industrial metal building buyers find “no-frills” prefabricated metal buildings both practical and economical for their needs. However, commercial buyers sometimes require a more upscale building appearance. Their building designs must attract customers and blend in with neighboring businesses. Although these buyers long for the benefits of steel buildings, they think steel limits their exterior… Read More

Hangar Doors for Pre-engineered Steel Buildings

Extraordinary-Width Doors for Aircraft and Large Access Equipment Aircraft demand mega-wide hangar doors for building entrances. RHINO steel buildings can accommodate any aircraft or vehicle with hangar-style doors in a variety of styles. Aircraft Hangars Built with Steel From helicopters to jumbo jets, aviation relies on steel-framed hangars almost exclusively. Why? Steel is the only sensible choice for hangars. Only steel provides the obstruction-free space required by aircraft. RHINO steel buildings easily span 200 feet or more without any interior… Read More
