Structure

Designed to meets the Uniform Building Code, our structures feature a corrosive-resistant galvanized steel frame for strength and durability.

Structural Steel Members 

Galvanized posts, purlins and hoops are used that conform to ASTM A53 Grade A requirements. All steel is hot-dip galvanized which provides for total rust resistance on both the inside and outside.

Fasteners/Bolts 

We use rust-free, stainless steel bolts that confirm to ASTM A307 and A325 requirements.

 

 

Foundations  2500-3000 PSI /28 Day strength is used and all foundations are designed to meet local soil conditions. When installed to existing concrete slab, 8" X 8" baseplates are fastened with an epoxy anchor system.

 



Powder Coat Process

Steel is dipped in an acid bath to remove unwanted materials, then heated to remove welding impurities. Powder coating is electro-statically applied, then baked.
