Types of Metal Buildings

With so many different types of metal buildings on the market, it’s important to know the differences so you can find the right one for you. RHINO Steel offers a variety of building construction types and metal building styles. Consider some of these types of building systems from RHINO:

Metal Barns

Metal barns are one of the simplest types of steel buildings because they come prefabricated as kits. All of the components are factory-precise with bolt-together instructions, making assembly quick and easy. Metal barns are also fire and lightning resistant, providing more protection than traditional wooden barns.

Recreational Buildings

Steel recreational buildings are one of the most versatile building construction types because they can be any size. Recreational buildings also have a wide variety of uses. Some examples of metal recreational buildings include dance facilities, banquet halls, batting cages, fitness centers, ice skating rinks, indoor sports fields, riding arenas, school gymnasiums, and community centers. The opportunities are endless! Recreational buildings also have options for mezzanines and climate control features.

Storage Buildings

There’s a reason why metal storage buildings are one of the most popular structural steel types — steel consistently provides the strongest and most durable protection for storing items. You can trust that your belongings are safe in a steel storage shed, and assembly is simple. Steel storage buildings can be delivered directly to the site, and mini-storage options are also available.

Commercial Buildings

You can run almost any business in a commercial metal building. These types of metal buildings can house office buildings, restaurants, medical clinics, retail stores, animal hospitals, auto repair shops, shopping centers, and more. Built to exacting standards, commercial buildings are easy to assemble and can be customized to meet your needs. This includes multiple facade options such as brick, stone, stucco, or even rustic wood. Top-grade insulation helps regulate temperature and can cut down your utility bills, too!

Steel Churches

When planning a new church building, steel may not be one of the first building construction types that comes to mind. But steel church buildings actually make wonderful houses of worship that can be designed specifically to meet a particular congregation’s needs. Steel church buildings can include classrooms, high ceilings for sanctuaries, and are easy to add onto as your congregation grows.


Metal garages are perfect for housing cars, boats, motorcycles, and trucks. Whether it’s for a dealership, repair shop, or just personal storage, steel’s durability ensures that everything stays protected. Noncombustible framing reduces the risk of fire for even more protection, and may reduce insurance premiums, too. Overhead doors and framed openings make it easy to maneuver large equipment, and manual, electric, or hydraulic lifts can be added.


Steel is clearly one of the most versatile building construction types available. With so many types of metal buildings, it’s easy to find one that’s right for your project.
