What makes pre-engineered steel buildings so strong? | Major components of a pre-engineered building
Nov 22, 2021
Hello everyone, welcome back to another video. In this video, we will tell you what makes a pre engineered building stronger than traditional buildings and what are the major components used in making these kinds of buildings. The major components of the pre engineered steel buildings are divided into four types. Primary components, secondary components, sheets and accessories. Primary components mainly contain the mainframe, which basically includes the rigid steel frames of the building. Columns, which help to transfer the vertical loads to the foundations. And rafters that are designed to support the roof deck, and its associated loads. Secondary components contain purlins and girts where Perlin's are used on the roof and girts are used on the walls. Then we have eave struts, which are used at the intersection of the sidewall and the roof. And cable bracings, which are the primary members that ensure the stability of the building against different forces. Then we have sheeting or cladding. The sheets used in the construction of pre-engineered buildings are base metal of either galvalume coated steel or cold rolled steel with hot dip metallic coating of galvalume sheet. If you want to know more about steel framing in cold form steel, you can check out this video on the channel. And finally, accessories they are the non structural parts of the buildings such as bolts, turbo ventilators, skylights, doors, windows, et cetera so these are all the components that are used in making a pre-engineered building.
