The Asset Shed Building Method
Built using structural steel, our sheds have the ability to span 9m up to 60m without a problem.
Bay spacings can be 6-9 wide on average, up to 12m if required. This can make a big difference in farm sheds, where multiple doors can be made for machinery sheds, or maybe just easier access for a hay shed.
RHS Framed Sheds
We can use structural RHS (Rectangular Hollow Section) for portal frames up to 12m wide. See the picture for what this looks like.
RHS is approx. double the strength of C/Z purlins, giving much more peace of mind.
Above 12m span, UB (Universal Beams, or RSJ) columns & Web Trusses come into play.
See the photo for a 36m x 36m COLA we built using UB upright columns and Web Trusses.
Web trusses are used for sheds with a larger span, as they provide a good strength-to-weight ratio.
RHS & Purlins
Up close - RHS rafters with 'Z' purlins in-between. Note the obvious strength difference between the RHS & the purlins. In a lot of alternate shed construction types, the purlins are used as the portal frame, whereas we use the RHS. Asset's shed design won't let you down!
