Are You Confident In Your Steel Building?
With Hurricane Dorian making its way to the eastern seaboard, people are doing everything they can to minimize the impending damage. Many property owners in hurricane-prone regions prefer steel buildings for their durability in inclement weather. However, without the proper accessories, your steel building may be left vulnerable to the high winds and pounding rains. Design Components Inc., a leading metal building accessories supplier, details everything you will need to protect your steel building this hurricane season.
Top 3 Accessories To Consider
There are countless ways to reinforce your steel building in anticipation of a hurricane. However, these 3 metal building accessories will go a long way in preserving your facility.
A hurricane’s windspeed can vary from 74 mph to 110 mph, causing severe damage to unsecured objects and inferior building accessories.
Thankfully, Design Component’s metal canopies are designed to protect your entrances and loading docks while withstanding up to 180 mph wind uplift when installed less than 30 feet from the ground. Our pre-assembled canopies not only provide coverage from the elements, but also add a nice architectural component to your building by providing a the perfect space to display your business name and logo. No matter the weather conditions, make sure you can safely access your steel building with a quality metal canopy.
Roof structures are often the first thing to be damaged in high winds. You can avoid a pricey AC unit replacement by making sure it is properly secured with a quality roof curb. All of our roof curbs feature a 20-year manufacturers’ warranty and are made from galvanized steel and aluminum. All seams are continuously welded and include fully welded crickets to divert water. We can even paint them to match your roof color. Keep your crucial roof structures intact, no matter the weather.
Is your steel building prepared for the torrential downpours that accompany hurricane season? Even the smallest cracks can cause a detrimental leak. You can protect your steel building by ensuring that every joint and intersection is covered in durable flashings.
Design Components offers just about any kind of flashing you could need. Our Dektite® pipe flashing provides a water-tight seal between your pipes and the panels of your metal roof. Plus, they are easily adjustable to your roof panel profile. Our Dekstrip® flexible flashing can conform to almost any shape, and is used to create water tight and heat resistant seals across any number of surfaces and materials. Flashings are easily overlooked, but are a serious element of your steel building protection.
