Gable Unsymmetrical



Description:

 

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


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 250' 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
- Asymmetrical shape

Benefits:
- Flexible design providing for maximum utilization of interior space.
- A&S’ quality fabrication practices result in a reduction in building-assembly labor, and subsequently lower erection cost.
- Wider buildings are feasibly more economical
- 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 need
- Economical savings on material costs which allows the end user to save on heating and cooling costs.
