Steel Warehouse Kits

August 4, 2023 | Warehouse

If your organization wants to build a warehouse, you should strongly consider a steel warehouse kit. Steel is a metal made from iron and small amounts of carbon. These components make steel ideal for constructing durable warehouses. In fact, steel is one of the most popular materials for warehouse construction due to its resistance to fire, pests, mold, mildew, and rot. Not to mention, it’s much more capable of withstanding the wear and tear caused by prolonged exposure to the elements than other types of elements.

Purchasing a pre-engineered steel warehouse kit can reduce the cost and time associated with constructing a new facility; and that’s precisely why many people turn to Sunward Steel Buildings for their warehouse building needs. All of our steel warehouse kits are prefabricated at one of our three U.S. factories. They will then be delivered to your site, ready to be assembled. With that in mind, the following is everything you need to know about our steel warehouse building kits:

Applications Of Steel Warehouse Buildings


One of the main reasons why steel warehouse buildings have grown in popularity over the decades is because of their versatility. Steel warehouses can be used for many different applications, including but not limited to:

Industrial Storage

Industrial storage refers to warehouses used to store goods and equipment in commercial and industrial settings. Steel warehouses are often used as industrial storage buildings because they can accommodate heavy machinery, vehicles, and other large objects in addition to inventory. In addition, the walls, floors, and roofs of steel warehouses can support considerable weight without compromising stability or safety. 

Agricultural Storage

Agricultural businesses often require large, climate-controlled buildings to store their agricultural products. Steel warehouses can be easily customized with insulation, lighting, and other features to create a safe and secure environment for storing grain, seed, feed, fertilizer, and other agri-products. 

In addition, because steel warehouses are resistant to fire damage, they’re the perfect solution for storing hay and straw. Plus, steel warehouses can be designed to feature large, roll-up doors that are great for loading and unloading pallets and other products. Finally, steel warehouses can also be used to house livestock. 

Aviation Hangars

A steel warehouse kit is the perfect solution if you need to build an aviation hangar. One of the significant advantages of a steel building is that it can be designed using a clear-span system, which allows for a larger interior space without the need for additional support. This makes steel warehouses an ideal choice for applications such as airplane hangars, where there is a need for considerable interior space and no columns or other obstructions. 

In addition, steel warehouses can also be customized with various types of doors to ensure easy access for aircraft of all sizes. 

Manufacturing Facilities

Steel warehouses are also suitable for use as manufacturing facilities. Our steel buildings feature large open areas with no columns or other obstructions, making them perfect for furniture assembly, electronics manufacturing, and other industrial processes. Plus, steel warehouses can be customized with insulated walls and doors to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the building. Furthermore, steel buildings are designed to meet local building codes to ensure safety and compliance with applicable regulations. 

Retail Storage

Finally, steel warehouses are also great for retail storage. Steel buildings can easily be customized with shelves and racks to accommodate large amounts of inventory in a secure and accessible manner. Steel warehouses can also be insulated to maintain the temperature inside the building, which helps to ensure that products remain in optimal condition. Additionally, steel warehouses can be outfitted with doors and security features to help ensure that only authorized personnel have access to your inventory.

Customization Options For Your Steel Warehouse Building 

One of the advantages of buying a pre-engineered steel warehouse building kit is that you can customize it to your exact specifications. And at Sunward Steel Buildings, we make it easy for you to do just that. When you order a steel warehouse kit from us, you’ll have a wide range of customization options to choose from, including:


We offer a variety of different accessories that you can add to your warehouse building kit. Some accessories you can add to your steel warehouse kit include solar panels, windows, vents, louvers, exhaust fans, ceiling fans, skylights, wainscots, and cupolas. With our accessory options, you can add to the aesthetic appeal of your warehouse building and improve its function.


Insulation is an essential addition to any steel warehouse building. Insulation helps to maintain a comfortable and safe temperature inside the building, regardless of the temperature outside. It also helps to minimize noise pollution and can help reduce your energy costs by eliminating air leaks. At Sunward Steel Buildings, we offer various insulation options, including our single-layer, double-layer, and energy saver systems. You can also customize your steel building kit with foam-insulated panels, thermal blocks, and more.


High-quality doors are essential for your steel warehouse building. That’s why we offer a variety of door options to choose from. We can fit your warehouse kit with overhead doors, garage doors, sectional doors, roll-up doors, mini storage doors, glass storefront doors, glass entry doors, and steel walk doors. So whether you need roll-up doors for easy loading and unloading or walk-in doors for easy access to the interior of the building, we’ve got you covered. 

Metal Panels

If none of our standard wall or roof sheathing options meets your design requirements, you can always customize the metal panels we use for your steel warehouse building. We offer a wide range of panel styles, colors, and gauges, so you can choose the option that meets your specific design needs. 

Our customization options for metal panels can help you add a distinctive look to your warehouse building as well as provide additional strength and durability. Our metal panels are available in 24 and 26-gauge thicknesses in white and galvalume. You can also choose from ten colors available with a 25 to 40-year warranty.


We offer a variety of different framing options that you can choose from. The framing option you choose will depend on the specifics of your steel warehouse building kit. For example, if you’re working with a smaller budget and you don’t necessarily need a completely clear interior space, then a multi-span frame might suit your needs. If you plan to add a second floor within your warehouse building (such as for office space), then a multi-story mezzanine frame is probably the best fit. Other framing systems we offer include gable, single slope, monitor, clerestory, lean-to, straight column, and gambrel frames, to name a few.


Although we do not build foundations for our clients, we will work closely with your foundation engineer to ensure they have the technical specifications to do the job correctly. Our steel warehouse kits typically require a pier, perimeter, or monolithic foundation. 

Warehouse Sizes

At Sunward Steel Buildings, we understand that every warehouse project is unique. That’s why we offer warehouse building kits in various sizes to meet your specific needs. For example, you can order a steel warehouse building kit as small as 24×24 or as big as 100×200.
