Gable Symmetrical



Description:

 

A ridged (double slope) building in which the ridge is in the center of the building.

 

Gable:
The triangular portion of the endwall from the level of the eave to the ridge of the roof.
Finish:
Red Oxide Primer (standard), Grey Primer (available upon request)
Usage:
Low rise construction
Limitations:
Supports widths from 10' to 600' or more, heights from 10' to 100', clear spans up to 300' or more, and roof slopes of 1/4 : 12 up to 12 : 12
Features:

- Designers have the capability of arranging sidewall columns that are straight or columns with the more economical tapered section.

- A&S fabricates all main framing in accordance with the company's strict AISC-quality certification guidelines- Interior support columns available as either pipe sections or H sections.

- A&S frames come with welded subassemblies. Roof purlin and wall girt support plates are factory welded to the main frames.

- Purlins are supported laterally by welded plates.

A&S furnishes all structural bolts with a corrosion protective plating.

- Frames are prefabricated as much as possible.

- End wall frames can be simple post and beam type construction, or can be built with a full interior type rigid frame to accommodate future expansion.

Benefits:
- Flexible design providing for maximum utilization of interior space.

- The benefit of A&S’ quality fabrication practices result in a reduction in building assembly labor, and subsequently lower erection cost.

- Wider buildings are more economically feasible.

- Saves erection time and increases the overall stiffness of the building

- Reduces the amount of purlin roll experienced under heavy loading

- Improves the appearance of the building and helps to speed up erection process, and no more rusted bolts to contend with!

- Eliminates costly field work needed to "customize" the frames for specific building configurations

- End walls are furnished in a variety of configurations, again with the flexibility to meet any metal need.
