Perka Steel Buildings
The Perka I-BEAM Model is a catch-all frame design using I-Beams where a web truss would not otherwise be effective. While typically I-Beam style frames will use more weight and thereby cost more money to fabricate, this model can be the best solution in many cases where space is limited. Typically these are used in low profile lean-tos, specific height limited neighborhoods and sometimes for a particular aesthetic or architectural objective.
With Perka’s in-house Engineering and design team, you can modify and customize this frame in shape and size to meet virtually ANY situation or specifications. They can even be combined with other model types to achieve EXACTLY the SOLUTION you desire. Perka’s unique pre-punched, pre-welded clip on the inside flange of their columns offers the builder/DIY an easy way to apply wall strapping that can finish BOTH outside and inside walls without having to build another building on the inside like you would have to do with most ALL STEEL rigid frame type applications. The bottom flange of the beams can also allow you the opportunity to add bottom cord clips to attach strapping to create a straight or flat interior ceiling hiding the beam themselves. Often used for annexes, retrofit add-ons, lean-tos, or for any purpose you can imagine them to be effectively used for; the Perka I-Beam Model only adds to the potential versatility that Perka can offer from the extremely large and elaborate of steel frame shape solutions!
