Louisiana’s location on the Gulf of Mexico creates a subtropical climate that produces lush, green coastal bayous, full of wildlife. Its location also makes Louisiana vulnerable to vicious thunderstorms and powerful hurricanes.
Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc across Louisiana and the Gulf Coast in August 2005, striking at the heart of New Orleans. Overall, the storm impacted over 90,000 square miles. Over 1,500 people in Louisiana alone died during Katrina. Hundreds of thousands of people in the area became refugees overnight.
This devastation underscores the importance of building strength and construction. When it comes to metal buildings for Louisiana, buildings that can withstand the impact of natural disasters are more important than ever.
RHINO-tough prefabricated metal buildings in Louisiana provide the strength and endurance needed for Louisiana’s hurricane-prone environment. Steel framing has the strongest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material, helping it withstand high winds. RHINO’s Louisiana metal building kits can even be specifically designed for optimum hurricane-resistance. Our prefab kits can be created with a low building profile, impact-resistant windows, a brick exterior (the most impact-resistant exterior material), and few openings to make your Louisiana metal building as hurricane-resistant as possible.
Manufactured in a quality-controlled factory, each Louisiana metal building meets or exceeds all building codes for the lifetime of the structure. RHINO steel buildings in Louisiana assure metal building pricing that provides the highest value for all kinds of structures, including:
Another enemy of Louisiana construction is the voracious Formosan subterranean termite (FST). In the humid climate of New Orleans, the FST racks up in excess of $300 million in damages each year, with another $200 million of destruction across the rest of the state. In wooden structures, termites can thrive, but steel is an inorganic material that cannot be damaged by termites. No termite — even a Formosan termite — can make a meal of RHINO steel.
While all Louisiana steel buildings offer advantages over typical wood construction, other metal buildings for Louisiana do not include all the value-added features of a RHINO building package.
