The main columns of the structure consist of rigid built-up frames that are fabricated from plate steel. They are then formed into an “I” shape by certain manufacturing processes. There are usually no intermediate columns, and maximum clear span can be achieved. Many supporting steel frames and structures called Purlin, Struts, Wall Bracings, Girts, Rafters, etc, run along the entire upper and side surface of the superstructure to offer support to roofs and walls.
Why are Pre Engineered Building Systems (PEBS) preferred over conventional Structure Factory Buildings?
- PEBs employ lighter roofing system and other materials in their construction.
- They allow large intermediate column-free enclosures thereby offering more space with clear span.
- An efficiently designed PEB system is said to be 30% lighter than the conventional factory buildings.
- PEBs satisfy a broad range of structural and design requirements of a factory building.
- They can be quickly constructed when compared to conventional structures.
- They are also cost-effective.
