Legacy Building Solutions offers the first line of fabric buildings to incorporate structural steel beams instead of open web trusses. This concept provides a high level of flexibility for processing and storage of bulk material, vehicle maintenance facilities, and other structures for mining operations. The buildings utilize a durable solid steel frame in place of 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, including the ability to relocate buildings by towing or crane. The solid frame also delivers the flexibility to customize buildings beyond the confines of standard shapes and sizes to the exact width, length and height required.
Legacy’s straight sidewall design allows for the inclusion of a variety of overhead doors, exit doors and dormers along the sides. Structures can be modified to provide desired eave extensions and interior columns. They also can be engineered to carry ancillary systems that need to be suspended, including overhead cranes, fire suppression systems, ventilation and lighting.
