Fire-Resistant Steel Buildings: the Safest Restaurant Choice
Why do so many restaurateurs choose pre-engineered steel buildings for bars and grills? For the same reasons other restaurants prefer steel-framed eateries.
Certainly, prefabricated metal buildings provide multiple advantages. Compared to other building systems, rigid-frame steel buildings promise:
- Low cost-per-square-foot
- Unobstructed space
- Better design flexibility
- Faster construction
- Economical operation
- Less maintenance
- Greater longevity
- Higher resale value
These are all important considerations when building restaurants, bars, or commercial eateries. However, the most compelling reason to choose steel buildings for bars and grills— as well as other restaurants— is the fire-resistance of steel.
Restaurant Fire Dangers
According to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) statistics, eating and drinking establishments account for over 7,400 structural fires every year.
In fact, restaurant blazes make up 6% of all non-residential fires in the U.S. Unfortunately, the fire rates for bars, nightclubs, pubs, and taverns soar even higher.
Erecting non-combustible steel buildings for bars and restaurants simply makes sense. Fire-resistant steel never becomes the point of ignition in a restaurant or club fire. If a fire begins elsewhere, the steel framing will not fuel the fire as a wood-framed structure does.
As an added bonus, the fire-resistant qualities of commercial-grade steel buildings cost less to insure, too.
Greater Strength for Better Protection
Steel claims the top strength-to-weight ratio of all construction materials. Consequently, pre-engineered metal buildings create the strongest possible structures with the least amount of material. Less framing keeps the cost-per-square-foot down— and chops an impressive 33% off construction time.
Although fire resistance ranks first in a restaurateur’s mind, other safety features also matter. Steel’s higher strength also provides extra protection from damaging earthquakes, howling winds, and heavy snows. Even termites and mold spores cannot feed on steel!
