Steel structure warehouse building is one of the prefabricated steel structure building types. The steel structure warehouse can be custom designed according to customer needs to meet any industrial or commercial storage needs. Specifically, it can be divided into light and heavy steel structure warehouses. The large steel structure warehouse supports the operation of cranes. A mezzanine can also be set up on the second floor as an office.
In the context of the global energy crisis, the steel structure warehouse building structure is regarded as the “best form of green building“. Due to the light weight of the steel structure and easy construction, it is currently widely used in the construction of large warehouses, factories, camps, apartments, hospitals, schools, multi-store buildings, and other fields.
WHY CHOOSE KHOME AS YOUR SUPPLIER？
In the field of warehouse construction, we are one of the few factory manufacturers. From structural design to installation, our team is capable of handling various complex projects. You will receive a prefabricated structure solution that best suits your storage and warehouse needs.
The steel structure warehouse building structure is mainly divided into three parts: Main Structure, Containment System, and Roofing System.
The main structure includes steel columns and steel beams, which are the main load-bearing structures. It is usually processed from Q345B steel plate or section steel to withstand the weight of the entire building and external loads.
Here some different steel frame types:
The wall enclosure system mainly has the following two methods:
Metal Plate Enclosure Structure
The metal plate enclosure structure is a kind of light wall structure plate that does not require load-bearing. It is composed of light color steel plate or color steel sandwich panel. The core material of the color steel sandwich panel can be glass fiberglass wool, and polyurethane or Foam core materials, but the current foam core materials are not recommended because the foam core materials do not have fire resistance. It should be noted that the single-layer color steel plate does not have the performance of heat preservation and heat insulation.
The load-bearing walls are mainly filled with various lightweight filling materials, such as hollow block aerated concrete blocks, prefabricated pre-stressed concrete perforated plates, steel mesh plastic wall panels, and light steel keel plus Panel wall, and so on. The bottom wall can also be made of ordinary new earth brick masonry. The roof structure generally adopts a straight system, or light corrugated steel plate cover and color steel profiled board.
There are generally three types of roofing system materials:
- Single-layer color steel plate.
- The use of single-layer color steel plate + thermal insulation cotton + steel wire mesh enhances thermal insulation.
- Outer roof panel + thermal insulation cotton + inner roof panel or sandwich panel color steel plate.
In order to save energy and indoor daylighting, daylighting panels and daylighting panels are generally added to the roof at the same price as the roof panel. You can also design a roof air floor at the ridge to enhance indoor ventilation.
The foundation is the load-bearing component below the ground of the building. It bears all the loads from the upper structure of the building and transmits the external load and the main structure’s own load to the foundation to stabilize the entire building. The foundation is an important part of the building.
The various components or parts are connected by welding, bolts, or rivets. It can reduce on-site welding and make steel structure installation easier and faster.
OUR STEEL WAREHOUSE ADVANTAGES
The warehouse can adopt a clear span structure, that is, an open area that does not require any structural support, which means more working space. The design width of the clear span ranges from 100 feet to 300 feet.
We provide reasonable customized plans for steel structure warehouses of various lengths, widths, and heights. We also provide other optional features, such as Windows or skylights, ventilation systems, entrance systems, drains, and downpipes, etc.
The construction speed is fast, the construction period is at least one-third shorter than that of the traditional residential system, which can reduce the comprehensive cost by 5-10%. Speed up capital turnover and greatly improve investment efficiency.
The steel structure has high strength and is suitable for the structure with large span, high height, and heavy load; at the same time, the steel structure has good toughness and material reliability, can withstand earthquakes, typhoons, and other natural disasters.
Prefab steel buildings are expandable and manufacturers are also very flexible and accommodating to design and engineer custom plans for your project, offering you more freedom in the design and layout of your building. In addition, you can simply add another section to the steel building if you need more space or disassemble it and move it with you if needs to be in another location.
Durable and easy to repair: The steel structure of general professional design can withstand harsh weather, and only requires simple maintenance. The service life can reach more than 50 years.
