Prefab engineered building is the building manufactured and constructed using prefabrication process. Scope of PEB Buildings is becoming increasingly common nowadays to efficiently satisfy a vast range of adaptive structural applications and aesthetic design requirements.
Main framing generally called as the rigid steel frames of the building as they are supporting members carries the main load in a pre-engineered building. Main Framing consists of tapered columns & rafters, which are referred as built-up members. The technology ‘state of art’ is mainly used to fabricate these tapered sections. Some of the factors that influence the choice of main framing include:
Slope of Roof
Building Dimensions: width, length, and height
Building’s occupancy and acceptability of exposed steel columns
Roof and wall materials
Column-free clear spans
The Secondary frame of a PEB may be considered as a main rigid frame or as a post and beam frame. The decision depends on the requirement of customer (whether he wants to go in for future expansion or not) or requirement of building (is the end wall open for access). The post and beam frame end wall system consists of pinned ends columns, supporting horizontal beams called as end wall rafters.
Roof Sheeting and Wall Cladding
Roof Sheeting is process of covering on the uppermost part of the Pre-Engineered building which gives protection not only from weather (rain or snow) but also from heat, wind and sunlight. Roof Sheeting & Wall Cladding is designed after research by our engineering experts on technical parameters that are appropriate according to the project requirement.
The Structural subsystems consists of light weighing materials that give adequate versatility as well as interfaces to other subsystems to ensure that all phases of the process are going through safe. Some of the crucial features of the basic structural subsystem design are:
Easy to fabricate and assemble
Free space to payload sensors
