The Benefits of Metal Buildings for the Badger State
Pre-engineered steel buildings in Wisconsin grace the landscape. No other building method offers the strength, durability, and ease of construction afforded by prefabricated metal buildings in Wisconsin.
The Badger State really digs steel buildings— especially in winter.
When the weather outside is frightful…
This winter has been one for the record books across the Northeast, including Wisconsin. Annual snowfall amounts generally vary from 40-50 inches across the southern part of Wisconsin. Sixty to 160 inches or more may fall over Wisconsin’s Lake Superior Snowbelt in an average year.
That’s all changed this winter.
Unprecedented snowfalls buried the Badger State very early this season. Mother Nature dumped over 73” of snow on Gile, Wisconsin in just nine days— and before Thanksgiving, no less! Snowplows worked tirelessly, digging out narrow traffic lanes in Gile, creating walls of snow 15’ to 20’ in height.
Depending on the consistency, snow weighs anywhere from 7 to 25 pounds-per-cubic foot. Exceptionally wet snow with an icy base might weigh out as much as 45 pounds-per-cubic-foot or more.
Buildings with inadequate snow loads cannot withstand such intense pressure. Many structures collapse under the strain.
RHINO steel buildings in Wisconsin meet or exceed all local building codes— for snow and all other loads— for the LIFETIME of the structure. (Given the increasing amount of snow falling in recent years, buyers might even consider ordering snow loads beyond what is locally required.)
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…
RHINO buyers of Wisconsin metal buildings appreciate the energy-saving properties of Pro-Value Insulation Package, too.
When temperatures plummet below zero in Wisconsin winters, Pro-Value’s extra-thick layers of batt insulation— combined with thermal break insulation and a durable vapor barrier— keep the structures snug and warm.
Andy’s Deli built a sausage and delicatessen store in Endeavor, Wisconsin— a 28,000 square foot project using RHINO steel buildings with Pro-Value insulation. After the structures were completely enclosed, construction continued inside the building over the winter. “The buildings were so well insulated with the Pro-Value insulation that we never had to heat the building all winter. Honestly, it was unbelievable,” says Jacek Zak, special projects director for Andy’s Deli.
