Basic Building Parameters

Building Width

No matter what primary framing system is used, the building width is defined as the distance from outside of eave strut of one sidewall to outside of eave strut of the opposite sidewall. Building width does not include the width of Lean-To buildings or roof extensions.

Building Length

The longitudinal length of the building is measured from outer to outer of the end wall steel lines.

Building Height

Building height is the eave height which usually is the distance from the bottom of the main frame column base plate to the top outer point of the eave strut. When columns are recessed or elevated from finished floor, eave height is the distance from finished floor level to the top of the eave strut.

Roof Slope (x/10):

This is the angle of the roof with respect to the horizontal line at eave. The most common roof slopes are 0.5/10 and 1/10. Any practical roof slope is possible.

End bay length

The distance from outside of the outer flange of end wall columns to center line of the first interior frame column is called end bay length.

Interior bay length

This is distance between the center lines of two adjacent interior main frame columns. The most common bay lengths are 6 m, 7.5 m and 9 m.

Design Loads

Unless and otherwise specified, Izhar Steel pre-engineered buildings are designed for the following minimum loads:

Roof Live Load: 0.57 kN/m2,
Design Wind Speed: 110 km/h

Design for snow loads, earth quake loads, collateral loads, crane loads or any other loading condition, if required, must be specified at the time of request for quotation.

Loads are applied in accordance with the latest American codes and standards applicable to pre-engineered buildings unless or otherwise requested at the time of request for quotation.
