Self-Storage Facility Specs & Features
Featuring durable, premium-quality steel construction, this insulated, energy-efficient mini storage building is 12’x96’x10’-8’ in size and has a single-slope Galvalume steel roof with White trim and a 2:12 pitch. Offering optimal structural integrity, the building effectively protects stored items against inclement weather, pests, moisture, potential intruders and other hazards, helping assets retain more of their resale value over time.
Installed in the roof of the self-storage facility is a 3” layer of WMP-VR faced fiberglass insulation. The insulation creates a more comfortable interior environment by allowing the building to maintain consistent temperatures, and it also leads to lower energy bills and, as a result, lower lifelong ownership costs.
The self-storage building also has (14) framed openings throughout that offer individualized access into each storage unit. Found throughout the property are (8) 4’x7’ openings enclosing (8) 4’x7’ metal mini storage doors and (6) 5’x7’ framed openings, each housing one of (6) 5’x7’ mini storage doors. The mini storage facility also features several customizations added in adherence to local building code requirements, among them a 90-mph wind speed rating and a 42-psf snow load.
