A metal garage building is a pre-engineered garage designed using custom computer aided designs. The primary framing structure of a metal garage building is an assembly of I-beams. In a metal garage building, the I beams used are usually made by welding together steel plates to form the I section. The I beams are then bolted together in the field to form the frame of kit. The framing can be tapered more or less according to the local load requirements. Larger I beam dimensions are used in areas of higher load requirements. Calculate amount of insulation for your building

Cold formed Z and C-shaped members may be used as secondary structural elements to fasten and support the external cladding.

Roll-formed ribbed metal sheets are used for the external covering of the building.

In order to accurately design a metal garage building, engineers consider the clear span between bearing points, bay spacing, internal crane system, collateral loads, wind uplift, roof slope, live loads, dead loads, deflection criteria and maximum practical size and weight of fabricated members.

While a metal garage building can be adapted to suit a wide variety of structural applications, the greatest economy will be realized when utilizing standard details. An efficiently designed metal garage building can be lighter than the conventional metal buildings by up to 30%. Lighter weight equates to less metal and a potential price savings in structural framework.

You Must Insulate A Metal Garage Building

If you're not going to spend the extra money to insulate, than don't purchase a metal garage building! Your building will be a HOT tropical rain forest in the summer and frozen with ice crystals in winter if you don't insulate. The metal will magnify the heat and cold making it much hotter inside in summer and much colder inside in winter. Your building will be unbearable to enter at times in the summer. You'll have a constant drip due to condensation that will damage your building and its contents. The insulation must be a reflective insulation + radiant barrier + vapor barrier to handle the unique demands of a steel building kit. Click for metal garage building insulation.
