The Finish Touch on a Well-Constructed Steel Building

Metal building opening trim is just one of several elements separating a cheap-looking structure from an attractive and professional-looking steel building.

All Pre-engineered Metal Buildings Are Not Alike

Many metal building companies choose to cut corners to increase their profit margins. They think consumers will not notice the differences between their metal building packages and those of high-quality steel building packages.

Door Opening TrimAt RHINO, we believe perceptive, quality-conscious metal building buyers do their homework.

Our customers appreciate the RHINO Difference in prefabricated steel buildings. We know this is true because so many of our customers buy more RHINO steel buildings— and refer RHINO to their friends and family. In fact, in the past 12 months over 39% of our sales came from repeat buyers and referrals.

Why Is Opening Trim Important?

All metal building trim has two jobs: to protect and to enhance.

Red-iron jambs and headers on a steel building opening lie naked and exposed without trim. The opening appears raw and unfinished. Steel building opening trim covers the framing, while complementing the rest of the building trim. It creates an attractive border outlining the opening.

Not all companies exclude steel building opening trim from their structural packages. Some companies include “extra” steel trim which the builder must field-cut and fit on site. Often the trim is insufficient for the job. In addition, the cut edges are sharp and dangerous to handle.

Other companies may offer steel building trim only as an option— at extra cost.

RHINO Metal Building Opening Trim

RHINO includes opening trim with all orders— at no additional cost.

Our trim is factory-cut to fit the opening exactly. The fabricators turn the sharp edges underneath like a hem, for a more finished look— and for easier handling.

RHINO’s 26-gauge steel building opening trim comes in a variety of colors to match the building trim.
