The steel factory building is a building structure made of steel,
including internal support and external enclosure structure. The
steel frame is made of a portal steel frame, including steel
columns, steel beams, and bracing. The portal steel frame and the
external enclosure structure constitute an enclosed building
structure with sufficient strength to withstand severe weather such
as strong wind, rain, and snow.
Prefabricated steel structure factory building:
Metal structures processed the cut, welded, drilled, and painted in
workshop, and then transported to the construction site, often referred to
as prefabricated structures. The
prefabricated steel structure does not need to be welded on-site, and each component only need
to be fixed with bolts, which is convenient and quick to install
and save labor. Five main types of structural components make up
the steel frame-tension members, compression members, bending
members, combined stress members, and their connections.
1) Column and Roof Beam: Q355B welded H section Beam
2) Crane Beam: Q355B welded H section Beam with a vertical
3) Roof Horizontal Bracing: Q235B Steel Rod
4) Column X Cross Bracing: Q235B angle steel or steel rod
5) Roof Purlin: Q235B Galvanized Z section steel
6) Wall Girt: Q235B Galvanized C section steel
7) Sag rod: Q235B Galvanized steel rod
8) Roof Cladding: 0.5mm corrugated single color sheet with glass
9) Wall Cladding: 0.5mm horizontal corrugated single color steel
Wall and roof panel
The roof panel is usually a single continuous length from the eaves
to the ridge line for portal frame buildings.
Wall panels are usually the continuous length from the bottom wall
to the eaves of the building.
It is usually a corrugated single-color metal sheet with a
thickness of 0.5mm-0.8mm. For a factory building that requires
thermal insulation, you can choose to use a sandwich panel.
Advantages of steel factory building:
Steel materials have many advantages over other building materials
(such as wood)
The prefabricated steel structure is manufactured according to
strict specifications and tolerances.
All materials are 100% recyclable.
The steel structure is not easy to warp, bend, twist, or bend, and
is easy to modify and flexible in design.
Steel structure can improve building quality and reduce maintenance
while providing higher safety and resistance.
Prefabricated Steel Warehouse VS Concrete Warehouse Building:
In terms of the construction period, the steel structure has
obvious advantages. The prefabricated steel structure warehouse
construction is speedy because its construction is produced in the
factory on the construction site. Only hoisting and splicing can
meet some manufacturers’ needs for emergency construction and
After the steel components are processed and transported to the
construction site, the components only need to be hoisted and
welded. There is no water operation, no sand, and a large amount of
dust generated during the whole process, which can reduce
environmental pollution and impact nearby residents. However, the
traditional concrete Buildings can’t do this, which means that
steel structures have done a good job in environmental protection,
the most important aspect of humanity. Besides, the recyclability
of steel also conforms to the concept of sustainable development.
In contrast to concrete buildings, after demolishing, there is a
pile of construction waste.
Steel structure saves construction costs and labor costs more than
concrete. The cost of building a steel structure warehouse is 20 to
30% lower than that of traditional concrete buildings, and steel
structure is stronger and more durable than concrete and has the
superior seismic performance.
The steel structure building itself has the characteristics of
lightweight. The prefabricated steel structure warehouse walls and
roof are made of light metal building materials, which are much
lighter than the brick and concrete wall ceramic tile roof, which
can reduce the warehouse’s overall weight and does not damage the
stability of the structure.
