Framing Systems

RIGID FRAME

The clear, unobstructed working space that the Rigid Frame system provides makes it ideal for many commercial and recreational applications. The wide, column-free environment permits the complete utilization of the interior floor space. Recreational rooms, steel hangars, and steel warehouses are often designed as rigid frame systems due to the interference or inconvenience of interior columns.


STRAIGHT COLUMN (SC)

Straight Column systems are utilized when a clear interior space up to seventy feet wide is needed. The column-free interior allows the total amount of floor space to be put to use. This design is often in small offices or other commercial applications.

MULTI-SPAN (MS)

The multi-span (beam-and-column) system is ideal in situations when a vast area of floor space is necessary. The flexibility of the Multi-Span Column design allows it to be utilized for any industrial or warehouse purpose.

LEAN-TO

Selecting a Lean-To system is a quick and economical way to expand a building. More space can be added to the building without interrupting the internal operations. This easy method of expansion makes the Lean-To system ideal for additional storage and office buildings.
