CLEAR SPAN RIGID FRAME FOR STEEL BUILDING

Clear Span Rigid Frame

The defining feature of a rigid-frame steel building is its steel backbone of I-beam main frames. Each frame is made up of two or more columns supporting a rafter that runs laterally from one side of the building to the other. Spaced at intervals between the two endwalls, the main frames bear most of the load of the building.

framing_rigid_modular

Modular Rigid Frame

A modular rigid frame is differs from the clear span in that it requires interior columns that create modules within the structure.

framing_single_slope

Single Slope

A single slope rigid frame is commonly used on retail centers or as a creative way of adding to an existing structure.

framing_leanto

Lean-To

The Lean-to frame joins to and is supported by a main building frame. The lean-to differs from the single slope in that it must be supported on the high side by an adjoining building column.
