Save Money With Steel Clear-Span Buildings

When in the market for a building that offers a wide-open, obstruction-free interior space, you may find that opting for steel construction can save you substantial money on your purchase. Clear-span steel buildings allow you to maximize space and overhead clearance so that you have more room for equestrian arenas, recreation buildings, aircraft hangars, farm or large equipment storage, etc. Sunward Steel’s prefabricated clear-span buildings can accommodate clear-span designs as large as 200’ plus wide.

Clear-Span Building Designs

Unlike conventional construction, clear-span steel buildings do not require interior columns or supports. Rather than relying on interior supports or load-bearing walls, the rigid frames of clear-span steel buildings carry the load through the rafters and distribute it down to the building columns. Because steel frames give you the ability to create larger spans than alternative building materials, clear-span steel buildings are ideal for use as:

  • Aircraft Hangars
  • Churches
  • Indoor Equestrian Arenas
  • Recreational Facilities (indoor pools, tennis courts, skating rinks, gyms)
  • Factories
  • Manufacturing Plants
  • Large Equipment Storage
  • Warehouses
  • Theaters

…and numerous other types of buildings and infrastructure. If you’re on the hunt for an economical, versatile and functional place to store assets, conduct business, work out, worship or recreate, you can count on Sunward’s clear-span steel buildings to suit not only your needs, but your budget.
