Clear Span Metal Barns

As the name suggests, a clear span steel barn has no interior support column. The roof support is equally transferred to the side supporting beams and walls. This gives a continuous flow of space. It allows for maximum utilization of available square footage.

Metal clear-span barns are versatile and efficient structures that offer a wide, unobstructed interior space. Open floor plans maximize your space, letting you customize the interior per your needs. Add doors, windows, or colors to create your perfect shelter, whether for sheltering your livestock, storing your prized possessions, or cutting out your creative sanctuary.

So, if you're tired of the limitations of traditional barns, get your hands on Clear Span Barns. They offer a world of possibilities, built to last and designed to meet the diverse needs of farmers and property owners.

Benefits of Steel Clear Span Barn Buildings

Some key benefits of prefab clear span barns:

Spacious Interior: You have the flexibility to organize your interior for maximum usability, optimizing indoor space. Consider incorporating high ceilings for efficient stacking of items vertically and in corners. Additionally, you can easily integrate mezzanine floors to expand storage capacity.

Versatility: You have the freedom to select various designs, shapes, lengths, and heights for metal barns, allowing you to tailor the building to your specific business or residential requirements. Whether it's a personalized art studio or a warehouse for an e-commerce store, a clear span steel barn stands out as one of the top choices.

Durable Structure: Its strength and endurance are true for all metal structures. The ability to thrive in almost any extreme weather saturation makes them ideal for high-speed wind, heavy snow, and hurricane-prone areas. Steel has a very high tensile strength along with a high strength-to-weight ratio. It can protect your goods, vehicles, and products from any catastrophic event without a direct hit.

Low Maintenance: Because there are no internal columns, maintaining the cleanliness of the clear span structure is easy. The absence of nooks and corners minimizes the potential for mold, mildew, or pests to thrive. Additionally, steel is resistant to termite colonies, eliminating the need for inspections or termination. Cleaning your clear-span building is a simple process. Remove all items, clean with a regular garden hose, or use a pressure washer at the lowest setting with mild detergent. Allow it to air dry naturally. Cleaning a metal building is indeed that uncomplicated.

Cost-Effectiveness: Clear-span buildings are often more affordable than traditional barns due to their simpler design and faster construction times. Additionally, the lack of interior support columns reduces the need for materials and labor, further contributing to cost savings.

Doors and Windows: The number and placement of doors and windows will affect the look and feel of your barn, as well as the amount of natural light and ventilation. You can enhance the flexibility of a clear-span barn. Decide on the size and placement of your doors, considering the type of equipment or vehicles you need to access the barn. If you plan to keep animals in your metal barn, you'll need to make sure the doors are large enough for them to get in and out easily.

Colors: Customize the exterior of your clear-span metal barn with various color options as per your taste and complement the rest of your property.

Ventilation: Ventilation is essential for any enclosed space, but it's essential for barns. Proper ventilation will help prevent moisture buildup, leading to mold and mildew growth. You can improve ventilation by adding vents to the roof and walls or installing fans.

Insulation: Insulation can help to keep your barn warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This is especially important if you use the barn for livestock or as a workshop. Various insulation options are available, so be sure to choose one that is right for your climate and needs.
