Portal Frame Build Method.All CustomFITT Steel Buildings are constructed using the ‘Portal Frame’ build method,
This means that each building is made up of a series of bays so the more bays you have , the longer it will be.
Each bay consists of two Portal sections, each section is made of two columns and two rafters that are connected by brackets. These frames are then attached to each other using purlins. The only real limitation to the length of building you can have is the size of the plot you are building on!
Buildings constructed in this way are strong durable, inexpensive and quick to erect, offering
- Cuts the cost of materials due to the weight reduction
- Materials can be packed into tight bundles reducing transport costs (and your carbon footprint!)
- Cut by manufacturer to exact size and pre punched with fixing holes, eliminating time and expense cutting and drilling on site
- Reduced construction time which means reduced construction costs
The outcome is a building that is very strong, very durable, conforming with exacting British Standards as well as being easy on the eye and pocket.
