Combining superior quality rigid
frame engineering with the proven benefits of tension fabric,
Legacy Building Solutions introduces
the industry’s first line of fabric buildings to incorporate structural steel
beams instead of open web trusses.
This new engineering concept provides a high
level of flexibility for a wide range of applications, including cattle and
agriculture buildings, commodity storage, riding arenas, recreational
facilities, commercial and industrial warehousing, and recycling.
Legacy buildings utilize a durable
rigid frame in place of the hollow-tube, open web truss framing traditionally
used for fabric buildings. Unlike hollow tube steel, Legacy’s solid structural
steel beams are not vulnerable to unseen corrosion originating inside a tube.
Additionally, the structural steel has multiple coating options, including hot
dip galvanizing, red oxide primer and powder coat paint.
The strength of the structural
steel frame provides several engineering advantages, most notably the
flexibility to customize buildings beyond the confines of standard sizes to the
exact width, length and height required. The design allows for much wider doors
than possible with web truss, and adding side doors is simple as well. Structures
can be modified to provide desired eave extensions and interior columns. They
can also be engineered to handle additional loads for conveyors, sprinklers and
even commodity loads on the sidewalls.
Legacy buildings feature
high-quality polyethylene fabric roofs that eliminate the corrosion concerns
associated with metal-constructed facilities. A wide variety of PVC fabrics are
also available. The durable fabric allows natural light to permeate the
structure, while insulation can be added to meet energy codes when required.
Installation is faster than with
conventional buildings, and the design can be adjusted for stationary or
portable applications. Sidewalls can be customized and built with any desired
material — including steel, paneling or siding — and then easily lined with
fabric to prevent corrosion to the interior. Legacy steel components and fabric
covers are backed by a 15-year warranty.
Legacy offers assistance from
concept to completion, including renderings, foundation design, installation and
project management. To date, Legacy’s in-house, professional installation crews
have constructed over 25 million square feet of fabric buildings.
