Plantation Metal Buildings

The Plantation Metal Building represents the most cost-effective structure of it's kind. It combines the proven strength of the semi-gothic arch design with tubular steel frame construction and heavy gauge ribbed steel sheathing. The result is a steel structure that offers design simplicity, high strength, corrosion resistance, simple, fast erection - all at a very affordable price. And the building can be erected with or without a foundation. Plantation Metal Buildings are available in standard widths of 20', 25', 32', and 36'. Lengths can be any multiple of 4'.



Other Features;

  • Less expensive than other types of commercial building structures.
  • Can be ordered to meet specific size and option requirements.
  • Higher standard load ratings than other comparably priced commercial structures / field tested.
  • Light weight components reduce shipping costs.
  • Permanent but can be relocated.
  • Virtually maintenance free.

Faster Erection
The Plantation metal building is the only structure of its kind that virtually anyone can erect quickly and easily. The use of light weight components means no heavy equipment is needed. And each building comes with complete easy to follow erection instructions and details. The standard frame can usually be erected in two days or less.

Strong, Corrosive Resistant
All structural members are galvanized high strength alloy steel tubing coated for corrosion protection.

Steel Post Frame Roof and Side Panel
Panels have wide striated ribs on 6" centers which create an especially bold effect on large surface areas. Five manufacturing steps that include prime steel, zinc coating, pre-treatment film, epoxy primer and a polyester finish ensure long term durability. The high ribbed profile provides superior rigidity, load carrying capacity, and a high strength-to-weight ratio. Excellent tensile strength ensures lateral stability by uniformly distributing wind and snow loads. The interior side has a white finish to maximize light reflection.

Special Anti-Leak Design
When installed, panels overlap to create an exceptionally tight fitting lap joint to insure a dry, weather-tight structure even under the most severe weather conditions.
