the strongest buildings start with steel
Louisiana’s location on the Gulf of Mexico creates a subtropical climate that produces lush, green coastal bayous, full of wildlife. Unfortunately, the 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. RHINO Steel’s metal building kits in Louisiana do just that.
Protect Against Hurricanes with RHINO Metal Buildings in Louisiana
RHINO-tough prefabricated metal buildings provide the strength and endurance needed for Louisiana’s hurricane-prone environment. Steel boasts the strongest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material, helping it withstand high winds. RHINO’s metal building kits can even be specifically designed for optimum hurricane-resistance.
Our prefab kits can be created with a low building profile, a brick exterior (the most impact-resistant exterior material), and few openings to make our metal buildings in Louisiana as hurricane-resistant as possible.
Manufactured in a quality-controlled factory, each RHINO metal building meets or exceeds all current building codes for the lifetime of the structure. RHINO steel buildings in Louisiana assure pricing that provides the highest value for all kinds of structures, including:
- Pole barns
- Steel warehouses
- Steel industrial buildings
- Steel church buildings
- Steel aircraft hangars
- Recreational buildings
- Prefabricated steel buildings
- Metal garages
- Metal storage buildings
- Indoor horse arenas
- Steel commercial buildings
- Agricultural steel buildings
- Metal barns
Formosan Termites are No Match for RHINO Steel
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 framing!
