Exterior Options

RHINO steel buildings aren’t one-size-fits-all. We offer multiple steel wall panel options and different types of metal roofs, so you can choose what works for you.

Panel Options

Steel Building Exterior Options

RHINO’s standard metal building wall panels are 26-gauge, high-tensile steel Purlin Bearing Rib (PBR) panels. PBR steel building wall panels are incredibly durable, featuring an extra overlap for increased strength and water resistance. These steel panels are coated with Galvalume®, which provides weather protection and comes with a 30-year warranty. You can then choose from eight color options to layer over the Galvalume®.

When other companies choose steel panels for buildings, they usually use ordinary “R” panels. These have a shorter overlap, which produces less metal-to-metal contact for a weaker connection. Choose RHINO for the strongest, most water resistant steel building wall panels in the industry.

Cool-Coated Panels

Another steel building wall panel option is Cool-Coated panels. Cool-Coated metal building wall panels are ideal for anyone who want to save on energy bills. These panels reflect 40-50% of the heat away from the building, keeping the interior cooler and saving 7-15% on cooling bills. Cool-Coated panels are the most efficient steel panels for buildings, and come with a choice of 16 roof panel colors and 12 wall panel colors.

Canopy Configurations

RHINO offers near endless customization options, including canopy configurations that can change the profile of your roofline. RHINO can add 2’-10’ canopies to sidewalls with soffit or 3’-10’ canopies on end walls. Door canopy kits are also an option and can be configured to fit 30”, 40”, and 60” wide door openings. Utilizing canopy configurations is a great way to make your metal building your own.

Gutters and Downspouts

This is another great way to protect and waterproof your metal building by channeling excess water away from the building and foundation.


two types of vents as steel building exterior options

You can extend the life of your steel building roof with proper ventilation. Louvered vents or ridge vents minimize the temperature differences between the roof cavity and the outside air, which helps remove moisture. Trapped moisture not only reduces the R-value of the insulation, but it also causes condensation problems, so proper ventilation is key.
