Basic Parameters

Basic Parameters

Building Length

The longitudinal length of the building measured from out to out of end wall steel lines

Building Width

No matter what primary framing system is used, the building width is defined as the distance from outside of eave strut of one sidewall to the outside of eave strut of the opposite sidewall. Building width does not include the width of Lean-To buildings or roof extensions.

Building Height

Building height is the eave height which usually is the distance from the bottom of the mainframe column base plate to the top outer point of the eave strut. When columns are recessed or elevated from the finished floor, eave height is the distance from the finished floor level to the top of eave strut.

Roof Slope (*/10):

This is the angle of the roof with respect to the horizontal. The most common roof slopes are 0.5/10 and 1/10. Any practical roof slope is possible.

End Bay Length

The distance from outside of the outer flange of end wall columns to the center line of the first interior frame column.

Interior Bay Length

The distance between the center lines of two adjacent interior main frame columns. The most common bay lengths are 6 m, 7.5 m and 9 m.

Design Loads

– Roof Live Load: 0.57 kN/m2
– Design Wind Speed: 110 km/h
– Design for snow loads, earth quake loads, collateral loads, crane loads or any other loading condition, if required must be specified at the time of request for quotation.

Loads are applied in accordance with the latest American codes and standards applicable to pre-engineered buildings unless otherwise requested at the time of request for quotation.
