Cold rolled steel is more economical than hot rolled steel when used as a portal frame design, due to the amount of steel used.
The cold rolled steel is produced with a galvanised finish to protect it from rust. You won’t need to apply any further treatments.
The cold rolled sections within the building have a warranty of up to 25 years, but will last for up to 30+ years.
Cold rolled steel is also lightweight, as the components are assembled together onsite. This means there are cost savings in the manufacturing process, transportation costs, and installation on site.
Due to the structure being lighter than traditional hot rolled steel buildings; costs are usually saved on the groundworks element of the contract.
On a traditional hot rolled buildings it may be necessary to pile the foundations leading to expensive groundwork cost. When using a cold rolled steel building a raft foundation could be designed thus saving our clients thousands of pounds.
Cold rolled buildings are ideal for workshops, storage buildings, industrial units, car show rooms where the structure is not asked to perform any other function.
