One often comes across multi-story structures and wonders about their structure and strength of such buildings. The multi-story building which is 35 to 100 meters tall is called as a high rise building. These buildings are often referred to as skyscrapers. These building structures are made up of reinforced concrete and steel.

 

 

Metal buildings are structures made of galvanized steel and wooden frames. They are designed in such a way that they are easy to install and last for a longer duration as compared to traditional structures. These buildings are classified into multiple types namely residential, commercial and industrial.  Residential structures include tool sheds, bards, garages, and workshops.  Commercial uses include storage units while industrial sectors make use of these buildings as manufacturing facilities or storage of heavy equipment. They can also be for agricultural applications.

 

 

Steel buildings are metal structures which are made of steel. They are fabricated with steel for internal support as well as cladding the exterior sides. These buildings are used for various purposes like storage or accommodation. They can be also used as workspaces.  They are also classified into different types depending on their uses. These buildings are classified as straight walled or arch buildings and clear span or multi-span. Straight walled buildings often include rigid frame structures and designs. Arch types are often associated with curved roofing and are mainly used in agricultural applications. These are also economic for certain designs. Clear span buildings are often associated with internal construction. Long bay or multi-span are designed for their use in bay spans over 35 feet. Advantages associated with a building made of steel include high strength and cost-effective structures. These structures are structurally sound and can be built to high tolerances. Steel is also easy to install and does not warp, buckle or twist easily.

 

 

 

Pre-fab buildings are in high demand these days. The prefab structures are manufactured at the company and then transported to the actual site. These buildings are easy to install as they can be installed with bolted fittings. The design of these buildings makes use of high-end software thus eliminating possible errors and problems associated with conventional design methods. These structures are also durable and have high strength and are energy efficient. They often cost less as compared to traditional buildings. These structures are also movable which makes them popular.

 

 

 

 

Pre-engineered buildings require very less time for construction. These structures require low maintenance. These buildings have a high warranty period associated with them. They are available in multiple sizes and designs are per requirements. All manufacturers of PEB provide service facility along with the warranty of these structures. Weight is also an essential factor for these buildings. They weigh 30% less compared to conventional metal structures.

 

Conclusion: Thus Pre-engineered metal buildings are in high demand these days and most preferred in all sectors of the industry. They are available locally with a lot of manufacturers. Their popularity and use in all sectors are what has made them a recent trend in construction today.

VERSATILE APPLICATIONS OF PREFAB STRUCTURES

Pre-engineered buildings are gaining a lot of popularity. New technology for designing and installation has made these structures the first choice among many others. Prefab houses are seen at a lot of places in India. These houses have a sturdy construction, can withstand all sorts of weather conditions at the same time they are economical too.

In housing applications, the use of prefab structures is gaining popularity. These houses are made of steel structures which are made off-site and then transported and assembled at the actual site with the use of bolted connections. Fabrication requirement for these houses is also very less. The materials used for these houses are also energy-efficient and economic. Thus, the overall time required to build these structures is very less. The prefabricated house cost is therefore very less as compared to traditional houses.

Apart from housing, industries also make use of these structures. A PEB shed design is a quite popular application in the industrial sector. These sheds are used as tool sheds, for manufacturing sheds, or even are warehouses. These sheds are used at a lot of places in food processing industries, atmosphere controlled application, prefab buildings, storage houses for perishables any many more.

In cold storage applications, the use of prefab structures has become extensive these days. These structures are made of steel framing and their walls are made of PUF panels. These panels are used in cold storage as they provide excellent insulation properties. They can be easily assembled and disassembled. They can also be used to create partitions in large rooms. The PUF panel for cold storage is designed in such a way that they interlock to form any size of cold storage room. These panels are designed for different parts of the room like walls, floor, ceilings, etc.

Portable offices are also another widely used application of prefab structures. The portable office cabins can be moved from one place to another. They are sturdy in construction and can withstand all weather conditions. These offices can be used as security cabins or as offices. They have all the necessary furniture and well-equipped sanitation facilities. These cabins can be used at construction sites or even at housing developments. These offices are available with a lot of suppliers. They can even be bought on rent. These structures make use of energy efficient materials.

Apart from the above applications a lot of buildings also make use of Pre-engineered structures. At places where there is a requirement for less weight, the use of light concrete panels is essential. These panels are made of specially designed materials and engineered to fulfill low weight applications. They can be used as walls or even as partitions. These panels are quite extensively used for green building technology.

Sandwich panels are widely used in construction these days. The wall sandwich panels are available in multiple designs and features. These panels are designed to provide high thermal and sound insulation. They are available in various compositions that can be used for different applications.
