countless hours reviewing a broad spectrum of building frame types and
spending thousands of dollars in development, the founder of our company
developed the SmartframeTM
building system. Built with heavy gauge, galvanized steel, the SmartframeTM
system evenly disperses the building load rather than piling loads on
I-beams set on centers as much as 25’ apart. The SmartframeTM
utilizes heavy gauge galvanized wall posts set on 5’ centers all the
way around each building. Not only does this provide a stabilized evenly
dispersed load that lends itself perfectly to interior build out, but it
provides added strength.
mentioned above, while reviewing other types of building frame systems our
founder noticed that many of the much larger buildings, ie. (Grocery
Supermarkets, very large Discount Superstores, office complexes,
etc.), used the tried and proven V-Truss roof frame. This type roof frame
once again provides an even dispersal of load and added stabilization and
this equates to strength. So he asked the question, “Why can’t the buyer
of a small private building realize these same benefits in their
purchase?” And so, a “v-truss system” was sought out and became an
integral component of the SmartframeTM.
Additionally, the entire frame is wrapped, (all walls and roof), with
heavy duty galvanized stringers which provide two major benefits. These
stringers, on 5’ centers for the walls and 4’ centers for the roof purlins,
add extreme rigidity to the entire building. They also provide a strong
galvanized steel base for the exterior panels. Although there are no
screws or bolts in the SmartframeTM
every exterior panel is screwed to a steel base, not one
panel to another.
And finally, there are
no screws or bolts in the entire SmartframeTM
system. Every connection is welded. A totally welded – 100% galvanized
steel frame that’s strong, good looking and extremely conducive to
interior build out.
That’s the SmartframeTM
and you’ll love it.
