At Atlantic Steel Buildings we are proud to use steel portal frame buildings in kit form across our range. Using a portal frame building means the structure itself is constructed in individual bays. The bigger the overall building when completed, the more bays there will be.
As a designer and supplier of steel buildings, we believe this method is the best for a whole host of uses, from commercial or industrial steel buildings to steel frame garage kits.
How do portal framed buildings work?
When building a quality steel structure in this way, we will work in two portal sections. Each of these sections consists of two posts and two rafters which are joined by the portal frame itself. These two sections are then joined by attaching purlins horizontally between them.
What are the advantages of building this way?
As a steel building supplier, we love working in this way. The portal frame method creates very strong, safe and durable buildings that you can rely on. They are also inexpensive which means you get top-quality results at superb value.
The steel purlins we use during construction can be packed into very compact bundles due to their shape. This means we can transport a large building in a more efficient way, thus reducing any transportation costs. We are always looking for extra ways to give our customers better value and this is just one example of that.
