What is a Clear Span Building?
Clear-span refers to a wide-open, unobstructed space. For metal building purposes, clear-span designs mean a highly functional structure with limited interior obstacles.
Modern engineering has opened the door for innovative ideas such as the clear-span design, eliminating cumbersome support pillars normally found in modular buildings. While remaining plumb and strong, clear-span metal buildings create an area that can serve a variety of purposes.
Clear-Span Metal Buildings Make Exceptional:
- Riding Arenas
- Aircraft Hangars
- Recreational Facilities
- Agricultural Buildings
In order to maximize space, a metal clear-span building is the way to go. Many investors or building owners favor the versatility that come with metal buildings. Changing the building’s purpose is easily accomplished when erecting with metal materials to begin with.
While clear-span designs are great for maximizing space, the extra thickness and weight of the support steel can increase the cost of your building project. However, the endless possibilities accompanied by the clear-span design helps offset the cost.
