RHINO Prefab Metal Churches

Your building committee should consider RHINO Steel Building Systems as your church building source.  Our steel prefab church buildings are:

  1. AFFORDABLE: Your congregation reaps more church building for every dollar in your building fund with RHINO prefab steel buildings.
  2.

  3. FAST to ERECT: Our prefab church buildings erect as much as 30% faster than other building methods.  Consequently, your flock will move into their new facility much quicker with a RHINO steel sanctuary or support building.
  4. CLEAR SPAN: The greater strength of steel allows metal buildings to span much farther than other building methods.  RHINO’s building system creates inspiring, unobstructed sanctuaries with soaring ceilings.
  5. STRONG: Steel boasts the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any structural material.  Point loads for heavy crosses, steeples, bell towers, or other structural devices unique to houses of worship will be included in the design, as well as for heavy roof-mounted air conditioning and heating units.
  6. EASY to MAINTAIN: Steel framing is easier on the church operating budget, too.  In fact, metal churches are practically maintenance free.

  8. COST EFFECTIVE: Commercial-grade steel churches enjoy extra protection from lightning, fire, strong winds, hurricanes, earthquakes, mold, termites, and premature aging.  Consequently, most carriers grant steel church buildings significantly lower insurance rates.
  9. GREEN: Stewardship is important.  You help preserve natural resources with RHINO metal church buildings.  In fact, steel is the most recycled material in the world.


Churches of steel are the strongest, safest, and smartest way to build houses of worship.
