From The Farm & Beyond
Metal arch buildings, or Quonset huts, are uniquely crafted to provide abundant space without intrusive impediments. Commonly used in the agricultural world the arch buildings can serve many purposes.
- Livestock Housing
- Feed or Equipment Storage
- Vehicle Storage
During World War II, the United States Navy requested an all-purpose building that was strong yet lightweight, shipped easily and assembled quickly. The idea of the Quonset Hut emerged as the perfect solution. Stemming from England’s Nissen hut during World War I, the Quonset Hut served as barracks, latrines, medical facilities, offices and even isolation wards. While the purpose has changed, the superior strength and clear-span designs of Quonset Huts create a multitude of possibilities, especially in agricultural industries.
In general, steel erected buildings are the most economical, durable, and protective structures available. They are a perfect option in preserving the value of your assets presently and beyond.
With safety and protection a top priority, metal arch buildings are one of the most secure and sheltered structures on the market making them ideal for unfavorable weather in rural environments.
- Superior Strength to Weight Ratio
- Wind-Resistant Design
Arch buildings are uniquely shaped and designed but are still extremely valuable. The clear-span design requires no interior framework, leaving a completely unobstructed space. Wind protection is a key contributor to erecting an arch building in the first place. One option is to build a straight wall to block the wind. This can be pricey and does not offer complete closure or expansion options like a Quonset Hut does.
Cost is one of the first factors to surface in any investment – large or small.
Economically Sound Quonset Huts
- Low Material Cost
- Cheaper than lumber, brick or concrete
- Quick & Speedy Assembly
- Minimal Maintenance
- Expandable & Customizable
In addition to the economic and safety benefits, prefab metal arch buildings are energy efficient when insulated and multi-functional, especially from season to season. Often times, farmers will house one product during the colder seasons and rotate to something new for the warmer seasons.
Whether constructing a building for agricultural purposes or needing a sheltered environment for other creative ventures, metal arch buildings will provide value and peace of mind to ensure your visions are seen through. Just like during the World Wars, steel arch building kits are still lightweight yet strong, shipped quickly and assembled with ease.
