Frame Types Available




Designers have the capability of arranging sidewall columns that are straight or columns with the more economical tapered section

Flexible design providing for maximum utilization of interior space

Metallic fabricates all main framing in accordance with the company’s strict AISI quality certification guidelines

Metallic’s quality fabrication process reduces assembly labor, and subsequently lowers erection costs

Interior support columns available as either pipe sections or H sections

Wider buildings are more economically feasible

Metallic frames come with welded subassemblies; roof purlin support plates and wall girt support plates are factory welded to the main frames

Saves installation time and increases the overall stiffness of the building

Purlins are supported laterally by the welded plates.

Reduces the amount of purlin roll experienced under heavy loading

Metallic furnishes all structural bolts with a corrosion protective plating

Improves the appearance of the building, helps to speed up the erection process, and eliminates rusted bolts

Frames are prefabricated as much as possible

Eliminates costly field work needed to “customize” the frames for specific building configurations

Endwall frames can be simple post and beam type construction, or can be built with a full interior type main frame to accommodate future expansion

Endwalls are furnished in a variety of configurations, again with the flexibility to meet any need

Symmetrical shape

Economical savings on material costs
