Pre-Engineered Buildings

Basic Building Parameters

The basic parameters that define a pre-engineered building are: Building width, Building length, Building height, Roof slope, End bay length, Interior bay length and Design loads.

Primary Framing

Pinax Infra pre-engineered buildings are custom-designed to meet your exact requirements. Practically any frame geometry is possible. Consult a Pinax Infra representative for your specific requirements.

Secondary Framing

Purlins, girts and eave struts are secondary structural members used to support the wall and roof panels. Purlins are used on the roof; girts are used on the walls and eave struts are used at the intersection of the sidewall and the roof.

Secondary members functions :

  • Act as struts that help in resisting part of the longitudinal loads that are applied on the building such as wind and earthquake loads.

  • Provide lateral bracing to the compression flanges of the main frame members thereby increasing frame capacity.

Applications of PEB

Nearly 70% of all single storey non-residential construction now utilizes preengineered buildings. Applications range from small car parking sheds to 90 m (+), wide clear span aircraft hangars to low-rise multi-storey buildings. Almost every conceivable building use has been achieved using the pre-engineered building approach.
