Framing Types for Metal Buildings

 
Clearspan - Rigid Frame: Gable (RCG)
A clear span, rigid frame, gabled building This tapered member frame is typically used in clearspan situations from 40 feet to 150 feet. It can be either gable or single slope. Common roof slopes of 1/4 to 4 in 12 are offered. When large RCG
clearspan areas are required for special industrial and commercial projects, the Clearspan frame type is typically the economical choice. The Clearspan can be used with either cold-form purlins or open web joists.
 
     
Clearspan - Rigid Frame: Single Slope (RCS)
A clear span, rigid frame, single sloped commercial building This tapered member frame is typically used in clearspan situations from 40 feet to 150 feet. Common roof slopes of 1/4 to 4 in 12 are offered. When large clearspan areas are required for Clearspan Rigid Frame SS
special industrial and commercial projects, the Clearspan frame type is typically the economical choice. A single slope rigid frame is commonly used on retail centers or as a creative way of adding to an existing structure. The Clearspan can be used with either cold-form purlins or open web joists.
 
     
Modular - Rigid Frame: Gable  (RMG)
A modular rigid frame manufacturing building The solid web rigid frame with interior columns provides multiple spans on wider buildings. It can be either gable or single slope. This frame type is economical with individual spans of 40 RMG
feet to 80 feet and building widths from 80 feet to 300 feet plus. Roof slopes are 1/4 to 1 in 12. The Modular frame can be used with either cold-form purlins or open web joists.
 
     
Lean-to  (LCS)
Aircraft parts warehouse with lean-to The Lean-to frame joins to and is supported by a main building frame. Common spans are 20 feet to 60 feet. The lean-to differs from the single slope in that it LCS
must be supported on the high side by an adjoining building column.
 
     
Tapered Beam  (TCG)
A metal building with tapered beams This straight column rigid frame is designed for maximum efficiency of interior space. It is suitable for all types of small buildings that require clearspans from 20 feet to 60 feet. A Tapered Beam (TCG) drawing
Roof slopes of 1/4 to 1 in 12 are available. The Tapered Beam frame is ideal for partitioning interior bays and small crane support systems.
