Of all the uses of steel buildings, storage units are among the most useful and appropriate. There’s plenty of reasons why prefab steel buildings should be your go-to choice when it comes to commercial storage projects. The most obvious reason is steel’s durability and strength, making for storage units that can last for years – even decades – without the need for much repairs or maintenance. Lincoln steel buildings use only the best steel in our building kits, meaning we can ensure that the structure will be the highest quality by the time you’re finished your project.
Our prefab steel buildings are perfect for storage units because of their ability to protect whatever contents are stored inside. Steel structures can keep your items protected better than more conventional materials like wood, which can eventually allow moisture to seep in and compromise the integrity of your items depending on what you’re storage. With the right locks and security features, steel buildings are one of the safest places to keep your items.
Easy To Assemble
One of the best things about steel structures is how easy they are to put together. The process is not only simple, but also much faster than other forms of building. The easy DIY construction method will allow you to go from ordering your structure to having it erected with 6 – 8 weeks time, instead of the 6 – 8 months it typically takes for more conventional building methods like wooden structures or brick buildings. In addition, you won’t need the same level of specialized contracting with steel buildings, since much of the construction is largely done beforehand at a manufacturing space before the pieces arrive to your job site. You can complete the project with general contracting help, or even completely on your own.
Flexible Size & Layout
Each storage structure will end up being different, because the needs of each of the property owners will all be different than the next. There is plenty of wiggle room in terms of the length and width you need for your structure in order to suit your needs. The same can be said for your storage unit’s layout – which can also be chosen and customized to better fit what you’ll need them for. Just like any building project, it’s imperative that you go into it with a full understanding of how you need your final project to look, and how much content you’ll need it to accomodate so you can make the right decision in terms of size and customization options.
Luckily, steel buildings are resistant to many of the factors that would typically affect structures of various materials, from wood to brick. Unlike wood, steel structures are resistant to fire, meaning whatever items you have inside will be safe from any type of burn damage. Steel buildings are also resistant to pests like termites and small burrowing animals that tend to cause plenty of damage to wooden structures. Being able to keep these factors at bay is important to make sure your items stay in good condition for as long as you need them to be stored.
