Steel Structure Warehouse
Providing the highest quality steel warehouse buildings for a variety of storage needs.
Introduction to steel warehouses
Steel structure warehouse building is a new type of building structure system. It is a prefabricated building that uses pre-customized steel components and is connected by welds, bolts or rivets. With the advantages of large span, light structure and short construction period, it can meet any commercial and industrial needs.
Prefabricated metal structures are ideal for warehouses, distribution centers and online logistics centers. The strength and cost-effectiveness of steel are far superior to other building materials, making steel frame warehouse the first choice for many companies in the construction of warehouses.
Especially if a company grows and needs a large scale warehouse building to store large quantities of goods, a metal warehouse is the best choice!
Our Steel Structure Warehouse will suit all of your needs.

Why do we need warehouse structure？
As a warehouse, the most basic function is the storage, transport and protection of goods.
Metal warehouses are constructed from high quality galvanised stainless steel, which is extremely strong and resistant to cracking. This means that no load-bearing walls or columns are required for support, and the use of clear span construction increases space utilisation and the ability to store more goods.
Another benefit of clear span construction is that the potential safety hazards for vehicles are much reduced when goods are constantly being moved in and out. Improved operational safety.
The unique structural design of the warehouse structure provides a high level of structural stability to effectively cope with a wide range of environmental changes, providing a strong protection capability for the storage of goods.
steel structure warehouse advantage！
The main load-bearing components of the steel warehouse structure are made of steel. Due to the high strength and toughness of steel, it means that the steel warehouse building can not require too many column systems to support the roof and frame system. The obstacles encountered when the pallet moves in the warehouse are reduced, and the space and transportation operability are greatly increased. A factory building constructed with a clear span can be within a range of 250 feet, without any uprights, and without any obstacles.
There are many urgent requirements for steel structure warehouses, especially large warehouses.Our steel structure warehouse takes only 45 days from installation to completion. It is extremely convenient to construct, which greatly reduces the investment cost.With the development of the business, we may face the problem of migration in the later stage. The steel structure is easy to disassemble and assemble, and the recovery rate is 100%, which is also his great architectural advantage.
KAFA has a professional design team that can provide customized design solutions for various customers' warehouse needs. Of course, you have to be willing to communicate with us（[email protected]） initially to explain your needs. Then our design team will give your design plan within 3 days and provide a quotation.We provide other optional features, such as warehouse colors, styles (Single Slope,Double Slope,Two-Span,Single Slope) windows, door styles (overhead doors, rolling doors and scissor doors) can be customized in height.
At the beginning of the design, we considered the erosion of the foundation by rain or melted snow. In order to prevent the foundation from being eroded, we designed a complete drainage system (drain and downpipe). Ensure the safety of use and the dryness of the goods.
Furthermorel: The frame structure used in the steel structure factory building is combined with the toughness of steel, which makes the steel structure warehouse have good seismic and wind resistance, strong load capacity, and the seismic capacity can reach eight levels. Strong anti-disaster ability.
Prefab steel structure is one of the most affordable buildings.The prefabricated steel structure building has a short construction period, which can greatly reduce labor costs.The steel structural components are made in the factory, which reduces the workload on site, shortens the construction period, meets the requirements of industrialization, and saves resources.Warehouse construction materials can be 100% recycled, and there is less pollution to the environment during construction and dismantling.
All components are prefabricated at the factory and then delivered for assembly according to the installation drawing destination. The installation time on site is greatly reduced.
All materials are made of commercial-grade galvanized steel, and in order to avoid accidents, we also use paint spraying to ensure the warehouse’s 50+ years of service life.If possible, we can regularly paint and spray the entire warehouse components every 3 years to extend the overall appearance of the steel warehouse and extend the service life
The most popular aspect of the prefab steel warehouses is its beautiful appearance, which can be customised to any desired style and, combined with its metal lines, can fully satisfy the aesthetic needs of the owner.
Our prefabricated warehouses has a wind resistance level of 12 and an earthquake resistance level of 8, making it the preferred type of warehouse for harsh environments
steel structure warehouse design
Metal buildings are one of the easiest types of buildings to customise and are therefore used for a wide range of storage purposes.
Therefore, before proceeding with a metal warehouse build, we need to fully integrate all factors (including appearance/load bearing/interior functionality) to design a fully functional and durable metal building.
Fortunately, we offer free design for steel warehouses.
When designing a steel warehouse, however, the load-bearing design needs to take into account the various natural factors such as local rain, snow and earthquakes. to select the corresponding load bearing frame/steel column thickness/force transmission method required. All you need to do is provide the area where you are located and we will recommend the most reasonable type of load bearing for your building. A proper load bearing structure is an effective way of avoiding unsafe elements and is also a viable way of increasing the life of the building.
At the same time, we need to consider the practicality of the steel structure. Good lighting also enhances the overall energy efficiency of the building, and we have installed light panels and windows on the roof and in specific locations to make the most of natural light. We have also insulated the building to create a comfortable and insulated working space and to reduce the necessary heating and cooling costs.
metal warehouse buildings parameters you need to consider

The warehouse structure is convenient for relocation and reuse.Find out more about: How much does it cost to build a warehouse?
steel frame warehouse construction process
This is the most important step in the construction of a steel structure warehouse. Once again you can choose the style of the warehouse and determine the height and size of the warehouse in relation to the quantity of storage.
The frame of the warehouse will be built on a foundation, usually made of steel columns and beams, and then covered with a steel frame, after the main frame has been built. Wall panels and roof panels are installed on the surface of the frame
Once you have decided on the style of warehouse, you will need to start levelling the storage land and providing parking for delivery trucks. Once the levelling is complete, the plumbing and electrical contractor will lay the wiring before pouring the foundations. Concrete is then used for levelling.
Once the exterior is complete, the interior work begins. First to be installed is the sprinkler system, followed by any heating and air units. And the corresponding office areas are constructed as well as the living areas furnished. At the same time the installation of the storage racks takes place
fabricated warehouse Shipping Notes
(1) Special personnel must be responsible for large lifting tools, use them appropriately, and strictly observe.Lifting rules to prevent vibration, impact, deformation or damage during the lifting process.
(2) Special personnel must supervise and check the truck’s number and packaging when loading the truck,Securely fix and increase the degree of looseness of necessary binding components to prevent loss.
(3) Maintain stability during transportation. When transporting vehicles, well-trained pilots must be accompanied by responsible personnel and leave marks on the vehicles when transporting long, wide, and high objects.
(4) Rough machining is not allowed. The loading and unloading personnel of the loading and unloading personnel should be familiar with the handling, weight and dimensions of the parts, and check the operation of the sling and wiring harness to prevent accidents.
