The Rhino Difference


Not all metal building companies are alike. At RHINO Steel Building Systems, our exceptional prefab steel buildings and our first-rate customer service set us apart from the common herd in what we call “The RHINO Difference.

The RHINO Difference in metal buildings delivers greater durability, increased value, and far superior weather resistance to your new structure.

After all, your new building—whether it is an agricultural, commercial, or industrial project, or for your own personal use—is an investment. You want the strongest, most durable building possible, and one that will retain its value, attractiveness, and functionality for many years to come.

A RHINO steel building provides these value-added benefits as part of The RHINO Difference:

  • 100% commercial-grade rigid-steel framing
  • Prefabricated framing components with all the pieces cut to length, welded to shape, and drilled for simple bolt-together assembly
  • Clips already welded to the frames for easy attachment of girts and purlins
  • High-strength bolts and nuts for strong framing connections
  • Framing for a door opening up to 30’ wide
  • Steel building trim in your choice of colors
  • A guarantee that the framing will meet or exceed all local building codes for the lifetime of the building!
  • Cover trim for all framed openings
  • Bill of Lading listing all parts shipped
  • 3 sets of Engineer-Stamped Plans with a Letter of Certification
  • steel anchor-boltplan
  • A 49-page Installation Manual and a Construction DVD

In addition, all the following superior weatherproofing and quality-enhancing benefits are also included as part of the RHINO standard package:


RHINO’s metal building kits include self-drilling cast zinc aluminum fasteners.  These long-lasting screws attach the Galvalume® sheathing to the steel framing.

These durable washers provide a waterproof seal even under extreme weather conditions. In addition, the washer also resists ozone and ultraviolet damage.  This results in stronger and more durable prefab steel buildings.


Strong PBR (Purlin Bearing Rib) roof and wall panels of 26-gauge high-tensile steel are standard in a RHINO steel building kit. These attractive and durable PBR panels feature extra overlap for increased strength and extra water resistance.  

Other metal building companies use ordinary “R” panels with shorter overlap, producing less metal-to-metal contact and a weaker connection.

In addition, RHINO quality steel buildings use sturdy steel panels coated with Galvalume® for weather protection.  The panel color is baked on top of the Galvalume® for an additional layer of protection. The Galvalume® coating and the color coating come with a 25-year warranty.

Formed based trim supplies two major benefits.

First, formed base trim eliminates the need for a 1-1/2″ notch in the concrete around the perimeter of the slab. Thus, your panel will not rest on the concrete, which may later cause rusting.

Secondly, using formed base trim typically saves an average of 4 yards of concrete on a 5,000 sq. ft. building—an average $300 savings on the concrete. 

The base trim is available in the same matching colors as the wall panels.

These die-formed ridge caps ensure a metal-to-metal contact for a tighter seal and improved pest control in RHINO’s quality steel buildings.

The mastic and double-sided tape for the closure strips is also included as part of the RHINO steel building standard package.

Our standard package works for almost every application imaginable.  However, there are also many options available from RHINO to enhance your building for your specific needs.
