Metal Building Component Visualizer

Every component in an Ironbuilt steel building is manufactured using only the best commercial grade U.S. steel. At every stage of production careful attention is paid to ensure the quality and integrity of our steel buildings.

Similar to a human body, the primary mainframes and secondary framing serve as the skeleton, while the sheeting functions as the skin. The Building Component Visualizer below is an interactive virtual tour of the components in an Ironbuilt metal buildings.

  • Close Base Trim

    Base Trim

    The Base Closure System provides not only strength but ultimate protection against the weather. The heavy duty tall 14 gauge base angle on the interior prevents dents, creasing and serves as a kick plate in aggressive work environments. The Base Trim is supplemented with a preformed foam closure to keep out rodents and insects. Only Ironbuilt supplies base closures as a standard; the other companies provide no base closures and use a small, flimsy, one piece, light gauge base trim/angle with no closures. Custom special base trimmed sealing closures will be required for flush concrete conditions or aprons please advise your dealer or representative.

  • Close Corner Trim

    Corner Trim

    The larger full sized Architectural Corner Trim is designed for strength with style in mind.

  • Close Cross Section

    Cross Section

    Cross Section of IRONBUILT Steel Building illustrates purlins, rafter, roof and wall panels. Ironbuilt® Steel Buildings are pre-engineered, pre-cut and pre-welded for easy assembly. They are manufactured with only 100% American made steel and conform to the Buy American Act provisions.

  • Close Door Openings

    Overhead framed door openings

    Ironbuilt’s door openings come factory ready for overhead door installation. The Overhead Door Opening’s framing consists of header and jamb components. For standard openings these framing members are cold formed CEE channel sections manufactured in 10-16 gauge steel. In heavier door applications, including bi-fold and hydraulic doors or hurricane wind zones, hot roll structural steel may be utilized. Full cover color jamb, header and “J” trim are supplied to shield the exposed door framing and complement the appearance of the building. Custom door opening sizes and “future locate” openings are available upon request.

  • Close Door Openings

    Man door framed openings

    Man Door Opening’s framing consists of header and jamb components. They are cold formed CEE channel sections manufactured with 10-16 gauge steel for standard openings. For heavier door applications in hurricane zones, hot roll frame members may be used for the increased wind loading. Complete full cover color jamb, header and “J” trim are supplied to cover the exposed door framing and complement the appearance of the building.

  • Close Door Openings

    Window framed openings

    Window Framed Openings consist of header, jambs and sill components. They are cold formed CEE channel sections manufactured in 10-16 gauge steel for standard windows. For heavier window applications, including those with motorized assemblies, hot rolled or structural steel is used depending on the load requirements. Complete full cover color jamb, header, sill, and “J” trim covers the exposed window framing and matches the other trim on the building.

  • Close Eave Trim

    Eave Trim

    The Ironbuilt exclusive triple Eave Closure System at the eaves provides superior protection. The deluxe trim package gives you a weather tight seal between the wall panel and the roof panel. For added protection, weather guard foam closures are used both under the roof sheet and under the metal eave trim which seals the top of the wall sheeting. This cumulative sealing system prevents birds, bees and rodents from ever gaining entry.

  • Close Gable Trim

    Gable Trim

    The Architectural Rake Trim on the gable ends enhances the aesthetics of the building. The preformed closed cell foam closure and rake angle on the end wall rafter combine to produce a strong, secure seal.

  • Close Ridge Cap

    Ridge Cap

    The ridge of the roof is sealed tight using our Factory custom preformed Ridge Cap sheets that nest directly with the roof sheet corrugation designed for low profile 1/12 roofs. Full sized mastic tape is also provided for a permanent air tight seal.

    Roof Sheeting

    Ironbuilt’s Roof Sheeting panels have a commercial sized deep corrugation of 1 ¼” for extra strength and a Purlin Bearing Rib extended lip with 30% more overlap for a stronger leak proof seal. They come in 22, 24, and 26 gauge steel, an AZ 55 Galvalume coating and a stronger high tensile yield of 80,000 KSI for extra strength. These PBR roof panels include a 25-year rust perforation warranty. Ultimate leak protection is guaranteed by the 1” double beaded mastic tape that gives a secure seal against water penetration. Only lifetime fasteners warranted against rust are used. Avoid competitors that use “R” panel with less overlap from sheet to sheet, or cheaper 3/8” thinner caulking that fails to provide a weather tight seal. Choose from a wide selection of standard colors, or request a custom color match. For wide span roofs, ask your distributor about Ironbuilt’s mechanically seamed, SECURE SHIELD Standing Seam Roof System.

    Wall Sheeting

    Ironbuilt’s Wall Sheeting panels have a commercial sized deep corrugation of 1 ¼” for extra strength and a Purlin Bearing Rib extended lip with 30% more overlap for a stronger leak proof seal. These PBR roof panels come in 24 and 26 gauge steel and include a 40 year limited warranty on the paint. Choose from a wide selection of standard colors, or you can request a custom color match. Only lifetime fasteners with a lifetime warranty against rust are used. Avoid competitors that use the cheaper “R” panel with less overlap from sheet to sheet that is not as strong and does not provide sufficient protection from driving rains

    Girts

    The Girts are the horizontal members, or “studs,” that run down the length of the sidewalls and across the width of the endwalls. They are attached to the main frames and the sheeting is fastened to them. These roll formed “ZEE” sections are pre-punched for ease of construction. They range from 8, 10 or 12” deep and 10-16 gauge for the thickness. Their coatings consist of hot dip galvanized or gray/red oxide primer, but custom acrylic or epoxy paint is also available for industrial applications. Additional Girts are used when attaching stucco or other wall facades. Contact the technical service department for any custom requirements.

    Purlins

    The Purlins are the horizontal members, or “studs,” that run down the length of the roof. They are attached to the main frames and the roof sheeting is fastened to them. These roll formed “ZEE” sections are pre-punched for ease of construction. They range from 8, 10 or 12” deep and 10-16 gauge for the thickness. Their coatings consist of hot dip galvanized or gray/red oxide primer, but custom acrylic or epoxy paint is also available for industrial applications. Contact the technical service department for any custom requirements.

  • Close Rafter

    Roof Rafters

    The roof rafter part of the main frame consists of a web made of steel plate that is welded between perpendicular flanges made of steel bar forming an I-beam. These components are precut and prepunched with exacting precision by state of the art laser and plasma cutting CNC machinery. The beams are welded on a PHI continuous weld line using a Submerge Arc Welding automated process that guarantees flawless weld penetration. All the framing is available in red or grey-oxide primer, hot dip Galvanized or custom special coatings if required. Contractors favor Ironbuilt frames because they always line up perfectly at the jobsite for a time saving trouble free construction.
