The Quonset Huts successfully ruled over the basic Nissen Huts with the modifications and adaptations in its design. The changes over time helped people to use Quonset Hut based models for diverse applications spanning across residential to commercial to administrative buildings.
One significant change that came over time is in the thickness of the material or the material gauge. Today the much thicker metal is used. The steel structure has a better coating effective against several extreme weather conditions. Steel arch building prevents rust and stands for longer. The Steel Arch building has steel panel with deep 7½” corrugation and provides better strength due to advancement in engineering.
Steel Arch Buildings have four types of arch designs based on Quonset Hut design:
All of these arch designs have some common and some unique features that make them popular among the users. The significant difference is in roof bending style from rounded to vertical and slanted roofs. The sidewalls also play a substantial role in differing the significance of each of these.
The A model Quonset Hut Steel Building has the same engineering as the P model Quonset Hut Steel Building. This building comes in a 4 to 12 foot pitch roof, which makes it a great fit to use for Garages, Shops, and homes – where the safety, hygiene, and durability matters the most. The roof pitch allows the snow to slide off by itself without creating any debris.
These are available in the standard sizes of Width from 13’ to 30’, Height from 12’ to 16’ and Length could be 10’ or any longer.
These sizes make the structure an excellent choice for small homes, shops, and garages.
Our every A model Quonset Hut Steel Building comes with some great features such as:
The A-model structure has upright standing walls in the sides bent in a triangular end, finishing resembling that of the alphabet “A” gives the architecture this name.
The 4:12 pitch roof helps much in lasting the natural calamities such as earthquake, hurricane, tornado, flood, and extreme weather conditions. The “A” style slanted walls make it easy to withstand the rough weather. The snow and rainwater slide off by itself without creating debris and the need for cleaning manually.
Our “A” model Steel Arch buildings can face the heavy snowfalls in the northern US and can also be insulated for keeping the internal temperatures regulated and sustainable for living inside in severe cold winter.
Our prefabricated “A” model steel arch buildings are easy to assemble and install helping you in saving costs spent on long installation durations, additional workforce, tools, and other resources. And so, you get the best-priced A-model steel arch buildings at the most competitive prices only at Powerbilt Buildings. These structures do not have any trusses, providing more roof space to be utilized.
The slanted walls are curved into pitched roof meeting at the rounded peak. They are all made with Galvanized Steel comprising of Aluminum, Zinc, and Silicone coating and making every structure rust-through for 40-years avoiding any chances of paint peelings, adhesion loss, and flaking. Our Steel arch buildings are manufactured compliant to ASTM international standards and ASCE building codes.
We offer several customization choices to make every structure look unique. You can choose the type of insulation, ventilation, color, window with/without a grid, and kind of doors.
Our pre-fab structures are easier to install and need fewer tools and machinery, making the construction quicker with the need of just bolting the structure together.
The P-model steel arch buildings have straight walls and arch-styled roof, more fundamental and conventional. It is trusted to give strength to structure so they can be durable season after season. The roof stands on walls, which offers more space for using. These structures have ample space to use as Garage, shop, home, backyard workshop, or guest cottage. The 14’ to 30’ widths with any lengths can serve you in any purpose.
These are available in the standard sizes of Width from 14’ to 30’, Height from 12’ to 16’ and Length could be 10’ or any longer.
These sizes make the structure an excellent choice for backyard extension and guest cottages.
Our every P model Quonset Hut Steel Building comes with some great features such as:
P-model stands for Panel model. They have upright standing walls with gable structured roofs. The common application of this architecture is in industrial, workshops, automobile or product manufacturing workshop, garages, and mechanical labs. The long-lasting structure is made of galvanized steel to stand against harsh conditions of any natural calamity.
The vertically straight walls and 13’ to 30’ width and 12’ to 16’ length provide more space to use as adjoining room, workshop, warehouse, vehicle parking, and much more. The various options in color allow making them look similar to the original house or building.
The p-model steel arch building is cost effective as the structure is engineered in the factory. The prefabricated structure is delivered to you. It’s easy to assemble and bolt together the structure. Installation takes lesser time, cost, tools, machinery, and the workforce.
The galvanized steel of 12- and 14-gauge is used in making the tubing. Panels are made with 26- and 29-gauge steel sheets.
S-model steel arch buildings have high side walls standing straight upright on a curved arch-styled roof. The high walls provide more space for storage on the floor and vertical walls. Whereas the curved roof remains clean even after snow and rains. The highest usage capacity makes it the best choice for Equipment Storage, Produce/Crop Barns, and Retail stores.
These are available in the standard sizes of Width from 10’ to 50’, Height from 10’ to 20’ and Length could be 10’ or any longer.
These sizes make the structure great choice for retail stores and equipment storage where the vertical and floor, both spaces can be used effectively.
Our every S model Quonset Hut Steel Building comes with some great features such as:
The s-model steel arch buildings have vertical side walls to the arched roof with no peak. This structure looks like horizontally cut alphabet “S” and is very common of all other kinds of Quonset Hut. In winters it looks like an igloo. Its structure can bear heavy rain and snow. The curved roof quickly shed off any rainwater and snow falling on it. The high walls provide with more floor and vertical space.
It is extensively used as manufacturing companies and commercial purposes. The adjustable height makes it suitable for future expansion. The flexibility in its structure makes it most durable and compatible.
This architecture is used widely across various industries such as warehouse, garage, horse barns, truck storage, fire station, airplane hangar, workshop, and businesses.
Our Q-model Steel Arch Buildings have traditional old school style design. These are best suited for the ones who love conventional styles. They can be wide up to 70’ and long as per the need with no limits. We supply the most tensile and durable Q-model designs.
These are best available in 20’ to 100’ widths and be 10’ to 24’ high. They can be 10’ or longer. These dimensions make them best used as Farm Storage, Warehouse and Aircraft Hangars.
Our every Q model Quonset Hut Steel Building comes with some great features such as:
The traditional Q-series Quonset hut has the most tensile and robust architecture. The steel arch building made on this model can successfully withstand the calamities like earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, and extreme weather conditions like heavy rain, wind, and snow. They can stand upright in any weather even without any beams and trusses.
They are used as backyard workshop, airplane hangar, and grain storage due to their wide spaces.
The structure resembles that of alphabet “Q” cut in half horizontally looking like a hemisphere has versatile applications and is very cost-efficient. This architecture is used in stylish building structures such as arena, stadiums, retail stores, amusement park, and much more. This is one of the very efficient designs needing the least labor to install it.
The assembly of this structure is effortless and needs no skills or tools at all. These structures have no peak, and so the snow or rainwater doesn’t collect, falling freely. The structure remains upright even in heavy winds as no figure stand facing the wind. Although, this model was built to serve military purposes back in the 20th century during the war but is more commonly used in agricultural applications nowadays.
