A metal building system is just that; a system.  

 

Pre-engineered steel building systems include four different types of steel framing designed to work together.

 

The typical steel red-iron wall columns and ceiling pieces attach to form the frame of the building in the primary system.  

 

The secondary framing of a prefabricated building connects across the bays with self-drilling screws for lateral support. 

 

The third part of the metal building system is the end wall framing.

 

And finally, steel wall and roof panels that are corrosion-resistant complete the metal building system.

 

These panels create the exterior of the structure.

 

And, if you don't want your prefabricated metal building to look like, well, a metal building, they can be finished with any typical building material to achieve the "look" you need.  

 

Brick, stone, glass, block, tilt-up concrete, or even wood make attractive exteriors for prefabricated metal buildings.
