The first week of May 2021 saw some major infrastructure damages in upstate and Northeast Georgia due to severe storms. Inclement weather conditions have always been among the top concerns of commercial building owners. One of the best things that they can do is to invest in high-quality steel building accessories to increase the building’s ability to withstand severe weather. That is why we would like to walk you through a list of products that we offer at Design Components that can help protect your building from storms, tornadoes, or outdoor elements in general.
Our High-Quality Steel Building Components
As harsh weather conditions arise, your fans, rooftop HVAC, and the other structures that sit atop of your building will be the first things destroyed as high winds and rain hurricanes come. Even if the interior of the building survives unscathed, you are still looking at thousands of dollars in repairs and replacements. Luckily, Design Components has you covered. All of our roof curbs feature a 20-year manufacturers’ warranty and are made from 18-gage & 14-gage Galvalume or galvanized steel and .080 & .063 aluminum. All curbs have the standard 1-1/2” thick 3lb. density fiberglass insulation. Also, whether your building requires double-bay or single-bay frame support, we have just the right floating curbs that meet your needs.
Rooftop Walkway Access
Roof maintenance is crucial to any commercial buildings, especially when there is a storm coming in the next few days. To provide your maintenance staff with the safest, most efficient access to the rooftop, we highly encourage you to consider the METALWALK ® rooftop walkway system. Not only is the base model METALWALK® rooftop walkway system engineered for safety, but its non-slip surface and optional metal handrail systems also make safety easy in even the most rigorous conditions. Chances are you will not want your maintenance crew on the roof when there is a raging storm, but if it is necessary, a METALWALK® rooftop walkway system will be all you need for peace of mind.
Though canopies are not usually a part of initial thoughts for improving safety in inclement weather conditions, they in fact increase safety. Slips and falls in rainwater can cause both fatal and non-fatal injuries on your property, so having canopies would help significantly reduce the risk of accidents for visitors as they enter your building. At Design Components, our metal building canopies are built featuring superior construction components including:
- Constructed of 24 ga. painted steel or .032 embossed aluminum material around a 16 ga. galvanized frame.
- Incorporation of 18 ga. telescoping support channels mount between girts on the interior of the building for structural integrity.
- Channels that accommodate girt spacing of up to 6′-0″. 1/2″
- Galvanized pipe hangers with adjustable rod ends that connect channels to the canopy frame.
- All hardware necessary to assure installation is complete and meets your highest standards.
