steel building for pool

At Worldwide Steel Buildings, we’re always amazed at the uses our customers come up with for our outstanding buildings. Check out this steel building kit that makes swimming a year-round activity. Here’s what the customer had to say about it:

The steel structure is incredibly strong and stable. We can get up to 1.5 feet of snow in our area and the frame can easily handle that weight load. We also can get high winds here and the structure hasn’t budged an inch.

pool covered by steel building kit with clear sidesIt is also very unique in appearance: the frame inside of the pool space has a geometric look that blends well with the rounded style of our pool. Externally, the frame has a clean look and gives very nice ‘curb appeal’. The steel frame design itself makes it very easy to safely mount any kind of accoutrements we’d like in the space (lights, wireless speakers, things like that).

This structure, combined with the polycarbonate siding we chose, gives us a pool space we can use all year. We can cool the building with our fan system during the summer and warm it with area heating in the winter.

We couldn’t be happier with how the project turned out. We have a pool house we can use anytime, any season, and this is something that really adds value to the investment we made for our pool space. We can’t wait to do some swimming when it’s snowing outside!

Again, thanks for all of your help with this, it took quite the effort but really turned out sensational! Thanks, Rob H.

Bencor Uses Steel Building Kit from Worldwide Steel Buildings

Many construction projects across the U.S. use steel imported from China. While it might be less expensive, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. Structurally, steel imported from China can’t compare to the superior steel that’s made here in the United States. At Worldwide Steel Buildings, all our steel is made in the United States. This is one of the reasons we can confidently offer our 50-year structural warranty on every Worldwide Steel Building we sell!

Besides using the strongest steel on the market, Worldwide Steel Buildings have many other components that set them apart from the competition. Continue reading and experience the Worldwide Steel difference.

How Are Our Steel Buildings Different From the Rest?

It all starts with the framing. Unlike our competitors’ steel buildings, the sheet metal on a Worldwide Steel building is strictly for aesthetics. There are no sheet metal to sheet metal connections. Instead, our trusses are put on 10′-12′ centers, and the secondary framing on 2′ centers. This difference makes our buildings strong enough to withstand the biggest and the baddest that Mother Nature has to offer!

Additionally, the sheeting for the walls is also built for strength up to 80,000 psi. Both side walls and roof are custom cut to length, making sheeting your building quick and easy, ensuring maintenance-free performance for years to come.

Each building we deliver is manufactured for whatever area of the country you’re in, both in terms of durability against the weather, challenges of the area, and meeting your area’s specific building code requirements.

With that being said, one popular question we get from our customers is what are the differences between open web truss and rigid frame steel buildings? And how do they decide which is right for them? The answer is different for each customer, but to start, you’ll want to consider the following:

  • The use of the building
  • Size of the project
  • Location of the building
  • Weather conditions
  • Budget

With those items in mind, let’s take a closer look at these two types of steel buildings to help make your decision clearer.


What Is an Open Web Truss Steel Building?

Open Web Truss Steel Building Garage

Our open web truss frames are ideal for clear spans up to 225 feet, which makes them a great option for commercial applications. Further, the gambrel truss option provides the look of an agricultural building or barn. Open web truss buildings are good choices for buildings regularly occupied by customers or employees. For instance buildings being used as:

  • Retail stores
  • Warehouses
  • Sports facilities
  • Aircraft hangars

Additionally, we have several designs of trusses and all of them allow installation of insulation, HVAC systems, sprinkler systems, sliding or overhead doors, skylight panels, and many other custom add-ons.

Our open truss building designs don’t require heavy equipment to install the trusses, but don’t be fooled by the easy assembly. This structure is developed and built to your local wind and snow building codes so that they can last through anything. They are made of 100% American steel and pre-punched and pre-welded before delivery.

What Is a Rigid Frame Steel Building?

The rigid frame structure is also made of 100% American steel. It allows for the maximum use of open space for storage and mobility. This style of building is a good choice for:

  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturing space
  • Churches
  • Agricultural storage for large equipment

Like the open truss building, our rigid frame building is perfect for the DIY project or contractor. The pieces come pre-drilled, pre-welded, and with a easy-to-read, step-by-step instruction manual.

Regardless of the style, we can design a building for your specific needs. We used MBS design software, and all of our buildings are made in an AISC-MB manufacturing facility. Everything from our raw materials to our manufacturing process is monitored by a third-party to ensure the highest level of quality control.

Which One Should You Choose?

If you’re still unclear which type of steel building is right for your project, the best way to make a decision is to consult the experts at Worldwide Steel Buildings. We work with our valued customers tirelessly in order to determine exactly what they need in a steel building.

The best way to determine the right type of building is to give our experts a call at (888) 211-9524 or contact us online and tell us about your project. You can also design your steel building online with our 3D Building Designer by clicking the image below.

Steel Building Kit Home

At Worldwide Steel Buildings, we understand that your home is an expression of the people who live there. Many people think steel buildings  are only made of sheet metal siding, or that the interior of a steel building is cold with a blocky floor plan configuration, but that’s not true with a Worldwide Steel Building. We make it possible to completely customize your home from the ground up with our wide array of add-ons and unique finishings. Here are some different customizable options available to personalize your steel building to fit your specific needs.

Choose from High-Quality Exterior Siding Options

Our steel framing enables your home to be extremely strong and durable. This, in turn, makes materials such as stucco, brick, wood, and vinyl siding, possibilities for your exterior. If you desire a unified look with the other buildings on your property, or want to blend seamlessly into the neighborhood, these exterior choices make customizing the curb appeal of your house a breeze! The exterior possibilities are endless for steel built homes and they have the ability to be as unique as you are!

Interior Options

Just because your house isn’t stick framed with lumber doesn’t mean you don’t have the ability to customize your interior floor plan. Our building consultants can help you plan the layout, get just the right room sizes, and ensure that your home is exactly how you want it.

Our steel building kits for homes are easily customizable. And the best part is, they are the fastest and most affordable way to put up a house! Everything you need is in the kit. With its great ratings on stability and durability, along with eliminating issues of buckling, settling, or twisting, you will feel safe and secure in your new house.

1.  The Boys Need a Bar

Every man cave should come equipped with a wet bar. Slide in a counter, add a few comfy stools, and stock it with all the best beer and cocktail fixings. If you’re going to do it big, this is definitely one feature you’ll need to include!

2. Upcycled Welding Benchwwsb-personal-welding-bench-airplane-enthusiast (1)

Your personal welding station should be more than functional. It should make a personal statement about the kind of craftsman you are.

Airplane hobbyists can not only craft their own designs, but they can do so on a welding station that channels their inner pilot with an upcycled airplane lift outfitted as a welding bench like the one on the right!

3. Hi-Tech Keg

Gone are the college frat days of the aluminum keg in a trash can full of ice. Grownups have a sleek keg on wheels with a professional tap on top. Click here to explore all the hi-tech options!

4. The Real Deal Theaterwwsb-man-cave-theatre-garage-workshop (1)

Sure, you may have a huge flat screen television with the latest gaming system hooked up and streaming services, but do you have a projector that re-creates the theater experience? The go-big-or-go-home mentality definitely applies in this situation!

5. Submerged Lift

Although you may love to restore a classic automobile from time to time, that’s not always what’s on the menu in your man cave. Install a submerged hydraulic lift and keep your floor space open in between projects.

6. Master Remote Control

Doubtless, your man-cave will be filled with hi-tech gadgets. Too many remote controls spoil the fun. Pull it all together with a single master control unit and quit wasting time looking for the right one to do the job.

7. Personal Climbing Wallwwsb-indoor-rock-climbing-wall (1)

Sky’s the limit, right? If you’ve got a larger-than-life space that needs filling, get your own indoor climbing wall! Skip the bench press and go vertical.

8. Secure the Goods

Upgrade entry security to “Fort Knox” level with an entry door facade that imitates a bank vault. If that’s too over the top for your taste, at least lock up your space with a remote locking system. That way you can play gatekeeper from anywhere!
