Our clearspan design provides plenty of room for storing farm equipment, crop storage, animal shelters and dairy barns. 



1. ARSENAL STEEL BUILDINGS can endure the elements

The outer and top most layers of the building are exposed to the elements. Therefore, the roof and walls need to be built to last. Although wooden pole barns have steel sheeting on the roof and walls, complete steel buildings are a much higher quality building. A major difference between a wooden pole barn with metal sheeting on the roof and walls is the thickness of the metal used. The sheeting on wood framed pole barns is 29 gauge. The standard steel building is 26 gauge walls and 24 gauge roof (if it is a standing seam) A lower gauge correlates to better wind uplift and impact resistance of the 26 and 24 gauge panels. During the design portion of your building, our steel building architects will build your building for your local weather, including design for extreme weather like hailstorms, seismic activity or hurricane winds.

2.
Clearspan! ARSENAL STEEL BUILDINGS have no internal support columns

The framing on a steel barn is all steel, unlike the framing on a steel pole barn, which is wood trusses. This enables buildings with a wider design to be accommodated with steel. Much of the appeal of building a wood framed pole barn is the low cost – however, that low price tag disappears after the building goes beyond 60 feet in diameter. Although you can make a wood building 100 feet with a clearspan framing system, the cost would be astronomical. Our clear span rigid framing system is a standard option that doesn’t add up to a much larger price tag. It will give you more space to store equipment, livestock, grain, or anything else that needs to be stored. When you choose a clear span steel building, and you will never have to navigate around interior support beams again thanks to clear span rigid frame systems.

ARSENAL STEEL BUILDINGS' Metal Barns Can Be Designed to Deter Humidity 

Humidity and harsh weather can really test the structural integrity of a building. Wooden pole barns are a more porous material than steel which can eventually lead to rot and drastically decrease the life of your barn. On the other hand, steel is much less permeable than wood, although it also has the potential to rust. That is why at Arsenal Steel Buildings, when we build in humid environments, we coat key elements of our steel barns with zinc to help prevent rust from forming. Key elements include the C-sections, roof purlins, roof decking, siding, and wall girts of your building. We can take other precautionary measures against humidity entering your building as well including choosing pre-galvanized secondary framing, and adding galvanized flange bracing and galvanized base angles to your building.

4.
Fire Resistant ARSENAL STEEL BUILDINGS have MUCH LOWER Insurance Premiums 

Wooden barns, and pole barns although partially made of steel, are also constructed with wood as well – making them susceptible to fire. Steel buildings, on the other hand, are a non combustible material with a very high melting point. Thus, Steel buildings are not susceptible to fire, and have a much higher fire resistance rating. We can also take extra steps to further protect your building by adding intumescent coatings, insulation sprays, concrete encasements and more. More fire resistant buildings that have a long life span correlates to lower building insurance cost. So although wooden pole barns have a lower price tag, in the long run, a long lasting, lower insurance cost steel building, may cost less overall.

5.
ARSENAL STEEL BUILDINGS are Less Permeable to Infestation 

Insects and birds can prove to be a serious issue for wooden pole barns. Wooden pole barns often have problems with birds, which tend to nest in the rafters. Insects like wasps, bees, beetles, and termites can also cause serious damage to wooden structures, whereas steel buildings don’t have nest problems and are virtually impermeable to infestation.

Customization Options for the Unique Needs of your ARSENAL STEEL BUILDING

Prefab Steel Barns doesn’t mean limited options, but actually the opposite. We can make your steel barn exactly how you want it. At Arsenal Steel Buildings, we have experience building everything from 1,000 to 50,000 square foot steel barns. You decide what components you want in your building design including everything from your end walls to how many doors, windows and louver and turbine vents. There are other customization options to make your steel building unique and more functional as well, including aesthetic items like color coatings and functional items like custom poured cement foundations and drains.

Study after study shows that steel is ahead of all of it's competitors in the Commercial and Industrial markets for buildings. In Colorado Steel Buildings currently hold a significant 71% market share in the Commercial sector and rising, and a walloping 95% share of the Industrial building market. Construction efficiency figures show that pre-engineered steel buildings can be constructed 30% -50% faster than buildings constructed from any other materials, at a fraction of the cost.
