Different Types of Steel Building Frames and Advantages of Steel Structures

By Steve Hops Subscribe to RSS | January 23rd 2012 | Views:

When you go out to purchase Steel Building Frames the manufacturers or suppliers make use of a precise design and pricing. There are actually three types of building frames made of steel; they are: clear span frame design, modular design and single slope frame. You can choose any one of them according to your requirements. However, among the three types of building frames clear span frame is considered to be the most popular because of its strength, versatility, durability and cost effectiveness. This building frame proves to be the best when a vast un-obstructed interior is required such as in retail stores, sports complexes or agricultural structures. This frame do not require interior load bearing column supports.

The second type of Steel Building Frames is modular frame. These frames require interior load bearing column supports unlike clear span frame. These columns help in distributing the load evenly which results in reduction of both the frame and foundation of steel buildings. Modular designed frames a generally used in several factories. Finally, the third type of Steel Building Frames is single slope frame. These frames have sidewalls of different heights which results in sloping of the roof up from front to back. This design is generally used for building strip malls, mini-storage facilities and office space.

It is a well known fact the steel is a metal that is very strong and durable. This steel metal has been used to construct since long time. Earlier, steel was used to build Steel Structures like warehouses, factories, storage spaces, etc but now steel is being used for constructing commercial as well as residential building. The main reason behind use of steel for commercial and residential purposes is the benefits provided by it. Steel buildings are considered to be safe as they are strong enough to bear earthquakes and other natural calamities efficiently.

Moreover, Steel Structures have several advantages over buildings made of brick and cement. The first advantage of structures made of steel is that they save a lot of time because you can procure steel in its complete form which can be immediately utilized as it is whereas for building a concrete structure it will take a very long time. The second advantage of steel buildings is that they are very economical whereas constructing concrete building is very expensive. The third advantage of Steel Structures is that they require very little or no maintenance unlike concrete buildings thereby saving manpower cost and time taken for the maintenance process.
