Steel Structure Warehouse Building

Prefab Steel Structure Building

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.

DETAILS

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.

Load-Bearing Wall

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.

*Foundation

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.

*Connecting Bolt

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

Space saving

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.

Customizable

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.

Low Cost

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.

Sturdy

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.

Flexible

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.

Low Maintenance

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.

Structural Characteristics And Design Of Steel Warehouse

The steel structure warehouse has unique structural characteristics because of the unique construction technology and construction practice introduced in the construction process.

The optimized design of the prefabricated warehouse also has a strong uniqueness. This paper starts by expounding the structural characteristics of the steel structure warehouse and analyzes the optimal design of the steel warehouse.

FAQs ABOUT STEEL WAREHOUSE

There are many factors affecting the construction cost to build a warehouse, and issues such as raw materials, design, construction period, are all factors that affect the cost of steel structure warehouses. You can just tell us your ideas, or send us your building drawing, and we will give you an estimate.

The concrete structure is suitable for multi-high-rise buildings with large loads and dense column networks (such as multi-store factory buildings, multi-store warehouses, office buildings, dormitories, etc.), as well as buildings with high requirements for fire prevention, corrosion resistance, or airtightness (such as chemical, Biomedical projects, etc.);

The steel structure is more suitable for large-span, large cantilevered single-story buildings (single-story factory buildings, logistics warehouses, etc.) with smaller loads, and lower requirements for fire protection, corrosion resistance, or airtightness building.

1. High Strength And Light Weight

The strength of steel is high, and the modulus of elasticity is also high. Compared with concrete and wood, the ratio of density to the strength of steel is lower, so under the same stress conditions, the section of steel structure is small, light-weight, easier to transport and install, suitable for large span, high height, and heavy load structure.

2. Good Toughness And High Reliability

The steel is suitable for withstanding impact and dynamic load and has excellent seismic performance. Its internal organization structure is uniform, close to an isotropic homogeneous body. The actual working performance is more in line with the calculation theory. Therefore, the steel structure has high reliability.

3. High Degree Of Mechanization

Steel structural components are easy to be manufactured in factories and assembled on site. The factory mechanized manufacturing of steel structural components have high precision, high production efficiency, fast assembly speed, and short construction period. The steel structure is the most industrialized structure.

4. The Steel Structure Has Good Sealing Performance

Because the steel structure is a welded structure, it can be completely sealed and made into a high-pressure vessel, large oil pool, pressure pipe, etc. with good air-tightness and water-tightness.

5. Steel Structure Is Heat-Resistant And Not Fire-Resistant

When the temperature is below 150°C, the properties of the steel change little. Therefore, the steel structure is suitable for hot workshops, but when the surface of the structure is exposed to heat radiation of about 150 ℃, it should be protected by a heat insulation board. When the temperature is between 300℃ and 400℃, the strength and elastic modulus of the steel will decrease significantly, and when the temperature is about 600℃, the strength of the steel will tend to zero. In buildings with special fire protection requirements, refractory materials must be used for protection to improve the fire resistance level.

6. Poor Corrosion Resistance

Steel is prone to rust in a humid and corrosive environment. Generally, steel should be galvanized or painted and should be maintained regularly. For offshore platform structures in seawater, special measures need to be taken to enhance corrosion resistance.

7. Green And Environmental Protection

Demolition of steel structure buildings will produce almost no construction waste, and the steel can be recycled and reused, which is very environmentally friendly.
