projects building types

STEELCON works with several manufacturers offering a complete line of pre-engineered steel frame metal buildings for virtually all industries including commercial, standing seam, architectural, municipal, residential, and hangars just to name a few. There are five different building types that we offer, ranging from a simple lean-to building to complex column and beam buildings. Also available to compliment our metal buildings are different roof/wall and soffit options.

Lean To Building Frame (LT)

LT buildings are ideal for use as office structures attached to larger WRF or CB buildings. LT framing is an economical solution for expanding existing buildings. Simple span frame design provides minimal horizontal thrust so foundation costs are minimized.

Single Slope Welded Rigid Frame (SSRF)

SSRF buildings are ideal where drainage restrictions are an issue, such as strip shopping centers.

SSRF buildings are available with options such as straight columns and/or interior columns.

Welded Tapered Beam (WTB)

WTB buildings provide maximum floor space. Straight sidewalls allow interior finishes to be installed easily. WTB design minimizes the horizontal frame base reaction so less expensive foundations may be used.

Welded Rigid Frame (WRF)

WRF buildings provide for the widest possible spans without interior columns. Economical due to the use of tapered members. WRF buildings are ideal where maximum available clearances are required in the center of the building.

Column and Beam (CB)

CB frames are ideal when wide buildings are required and interior columns are required. CB frames may be used with bar joist roof purlins when large column free areas are permitted. Interior columns may be recessed for a clean appearance.
