  • Steel structure buildings are widely used in factories, warehouses, restaurants, gymnasiums, large markets, leisure and vacation places, etc.

Advantages of Industrial Steel Buildings

  • Durable. It has a high strength-to-weight ratio, which means it has a high strength per unit mass. So no matter how large the overall structure is, the steel sections will be small and light, unlike other building materials.
  • It can be easily manufactured and produced in large quantities. The entire metal building is pre-drilled, pre-punched, pre-engineered and pre-fabricated to reduce your costs and time, and then assembled on site. Construction is much faster than building with other materials, which saves time and increases the efficiency of the entire construction process.
  • Very flexible. When it comes to extensions and alterations, you can mould them into any shape without changing their properties. Provides us with the most economical way of purchasing industrial steel buildings, saving time and money.
  • The cost is relatively cheap compared to other building materials. And they are lighter in weight, easier to maintain and there is less risk of fire.
  • Long service life. Structural steel structures can withstand external stresses such as earthquakes, thunderstorms and cyclones. If properly maintained, a well-built steel structure can last up to 50 years!

The Points Should be Paid Attention to When Installing

  1. If there is a gutter, the tie rod can not be designed to the position close to the top of the column, otherwise it may cause the downspout to be unable to be installed.
  2. The arrangement of the bolt position of the flower basket on the horizontal support should be reasonable, not too deviated from the main beam, and convenient installation should be considered. In addition, the layout position of the corner brace should also be considered.
  3. Don’t one-sidedly consider factors such as “tensioned side and compressed side” on the brace holes of the purlin, and punch holes with unequal upper and lower margins, because it is easy to install reversely when installing, and the result is not good.
  4. The location of the high-strength bolts should be reasonable, and the construction space of the torque-breaker and torque wrench should be considered. Do not install, because the space is too small, the torque-breaker and the torque wrench can not be in place, etc., resulting in the high-strength bolt torx head cannot be broken Or high-strength bolts cannot be tightened.
  5. If possible, the high-strength bolt connection plate shall adopt a symmetrical bolt arrangement method as far as possible.
  6. If the light steel structure has a brick wall to be maintained, it must be connected to the construction unit and the civil construction unit in advance.
  7. The connection between the wind-resistant column and the steel beam should be connected with spring plates as much as possible, because the beam of the middle span is relatively large after installation. If the beam of the gable wall is connected with the wind-resistant column with bolts, the roof will be uneven.
  8. The layout drawing of roof purlin and the detailed drawing of steel beam should be checked carefully.
  9. The gusset plate has no stiffeners, and some designers did not design it, resulting in deformation of the gusset plate during subsequent welding.
  10. When the beam and column were used as the tie rod connecting plate, the hole was not properly extended. In some places, the connecting plate on the tie rod was too long, resulting in too small space, and the tie rod was too long to fit.
  11. Try to use countersunk screws when installing purlins with strip windows.
  12. The upper strip window of the doorway is too close to the upper frame of the doorway, and there is no place for the awning.
  13. The brace between the upper and lower adjacent purlins of the window frame is not properly arranged, and the end of the brace conflicts with the window frame.
  14. Anti-condensation paint should be painted under the gutter, or polyurethane insulation layer should be sprayed, or other insulation treatments can be used.

Different Types of Steel Structure Building

Steel structures can be used to create almost any shape or form, not only for industry but also for many applications. The steel structure is very durable, the maintenance cost is low, the price is reasonable, and the construction speed is fast.

It is the perfect solution to meet your farm storage needs. Wooden farmhouses may start to rot soon, while steel farmhouses are strong, durable, insect-resistant, and affordable, and can serve you for a long time. The steel structure has excellent strength and reliability, making it an ideal choice for farmers and agricultural workers. In this industry, being able to obtain a good return on investment is the key. Steel structure buildings provide an excellent return on investment with their durability, service life and minimal maintenance and repairs.

More and more customers use steel structures as their first choice for farms and warehouses for storing livestock forage. Steel structure storage building is an economical and safe investment. Unlike other building materials, steel construction can ensure long-term durability.

Aircraft Hangar Steel Construction

Today’s aircraft hangars are all steel structures, precisely because of the many advantages of steel structure aircraft hangars. Although the construction cost of the steel structure hangar is high, it is relatively expensive. After careful consideration, steel aircraft hangar construction is a very good choice. With aircraft hangars spread over a wide area, steel structures offer a cost-effective and sustainable solution for the construction of aircraft hangars. Steel structures provide excellent protection for aircraft and are the best way to get a quick return on investment.

The steel structure aircraft hangar has a short assembly cycle.
After completing all the detailed designs of the entire structure, once the foundation is ready, it can be completed in a short time. This is because all fastener holes are pre-perforated or pre-drilled.


The steel structure hangar can save insurance costs.
Insurance companies usually pay lower insurance premiums for steel structures than other materials.


Resistance to strong wind and snow.
The steel structure roof is generally designed for wind loads up to 270km/h, and the entire structure is resistant to bending. The steel structure hangar building can also resist heavy snow, because the steel structure is designed to resist the snow load according to the local climate. These features are essential to the safety of the hangar.


Anti-corrosion, anti-rust, anti-insect.
The steel normally used in aircraft hangars is plated with aluminum or other protective metals to prevent corrosion. Iron is an inorganic material and will not mold. Insects or animals will not damage the steel.


Excellent seismic performance.
Especially in earthquake-stricken areas, aircraft hangars must be constructed with steel structures. In addition, the airport is a public Class A building and needs to resume operations immediately after the disaster. The steel structure is more seismic and safer.


The space span is vast.
There is no space to interrupt the middle column, which is very suitable for parking the hangar.


Low maintenance costs.
You just need to check every year for loose or missing fasteners, or add sealant around new fasteners and openings.


The appearance color can be changed freely.
For different purposes, you can choose different appearance colors, and even blend into the surrounding background. It also gave the designer more inspiration.
