Can A Metal Building Kit Be Used For An Indoor Sports Facility?

Posted by Ben Sparhawk on Nov 2, 2021 3:59:55 PM

High-level sports facilities often have unique requirements that can not be met by using building materials like wood, brick, or concrete.

Many indoor facilities need long, high ceilings without vertical supports or support walls.

And when they do, steel is a clear choice. There are a lot of things to consider about metal building kits for sports facilities.

Prefabricated metal building kits are great for your indoor recreational facility because they aren't as expensive or time-consuming as traditional building materials.

They also provide extreme durability and versatility, both of which are necessary when designing your indoor sports facility. 

In the article below, we will talk about why you should use steel for recreational facilities.

Which Sports Can Benefit from the Use of Prefab Metal Building Kits?

We cannot think of a sport that wouldn't benefit from using a prefabricated metal building kit.

This building type is perfect for indoor basketball courts, indoor tennis courts, indoor soccer fields, weight rooms, a community center, and so much more.

With steel structures, you are only limited by your imagination.

Here are a few reasons why prefab steel structures make great recreation buildings.


Metal Building Kits Are Easy To Maintain

The air volume inside of a steel building is easier to control than traditional building materials.

This goes for both temperature and humidity.

The bulk of a steel sports facility's interior space is wide open and unobstructed, allowing commercial air handlers to do their job much easier.

The interior and exterior surfaces of a steel-built indoor football facility, baseball facility, or the like will require little ongoing maintenance.

Wood-framed or brick structures typically need constant maintenance and upkeep. This is one of the reasons why metal buildings are a top choice for wind turbine manufacturing facilities.


Prefabricated Steel Buildings Are Customizable

A recreational structure built with steel is not limited by design or aesthetics.

When you build with metal, you can design your metal building to look and do exactly what you need.

You can design your structure to be a

  • Yoga studio
  • Martial arts center
  • Dance studio
  • Bowling alley
  • Natatorium
  • Arena
  • Gymnasium
  • Batting Cages
  • Track 
  • Ice skating or a roller rink
  • Indoor sports court
  • Indoor fields for soccer, lacrosse, or field hockey
  • Weightlifting Gym
  • Fitness Centers

Metal building kits come in various sizes and layouts that can accommodate anything you need your sports facility to be.  

The only limitation you have when you are designing your indoor sports complex is your imagination.

With clear-span capabilities, you can also change your layout in the future, adding doors, walls, or mezzanines.

And don't worry about your rec center looking like a metal barn or something that belongs in a field.

You can choose an exterior finish to impress your customers and give your prefabricated metal recreational building whatever look that you want. 


Steel Buildings Are Durable For Decades

Durability and longevity or critical for any building type, especially a sports facility like a basketball court.

From soccer stadiums and basketball courts to indoor gymnasiums, yoga studios, and other sports facilities, you need to use quality materials that will last for years to come.

Every aspect of your gymnasium needs real strength.

If you use a high-quality steel frame at an affordable price, you can be sure that your gymnasium or recreational steel building will last for years without breaking the bank.

In addition to their durability, prefabricated metal structures are also much more environmentally friendly than other building materials. Steel is 100% recyclable.
