All four models of Adaptive steel buildings offer you the same features and benefits

You could save thousands of dollars by choosing an arch-configuration steel building. Our buildings require no skilled labor, offer 100% usable space and are 7-times more rust resistant than galvanized.

Self-erect with no skilled labor or heavy lifting gear

Thanks to the arch-style and prefabricated design, there is no skilled labor required for assembly or any heavy lifting gear (such as a crane). Our steel buildings can be rapidly bolted together and erected in a matter of days with the help of just a few friends and therefore construction costs are significantly less than conventional building construction.

  • Erected in days: Because of the arch-configuration you can assemble the building in just a few days with the help of several non-skilled people
  •  No specialist equipment: There is no heavy lifting equipment or specialist tools needed
  •  Holes are pre-drilled: This lowers construction costs significantly as pilot spot holes require high labor field drilling to ream out
  • No field welding: The lip and the last 9 inches at the end of each arch panel are flat so that the arch sections bolt together super-tight
  • One size nut and bolt: One size makes the construction process even simpler and faster
  • Comes with easy-to-follow assembly manual: Simple, fast assembly instructions are included as well as Computer Aided Designs

Assembly in 4 easy steps:

*The arches are precision made to fit perfectly. They easily overlap to allow for fast, accurate assembly without the help of special tools or equipment.

100% usable open space with no beams or posts

Thanks to the arch structure requiring no structural framework the buildings have no beams, trusses or posts and allow for a complete use of interior space. The building features a unique corrugation that acts like thousands of reinforcing steels beams resulting in great strength and durability. This is because, as each arch-panel overlaps, it simulates having a steel beam every 2’ down the length and similarly simulates having a steel reinforcing plate wherever the panels bolt together.

7 times more rust resistant than galvanized

Each steel building is made of superior US Galvalume Steel®, a special steel alloy developed by the US steel industry to provide lifelong durability, with a 25-year american limited rust-through perforation warranty on the AZ55 Galvalume® panels. Only prime US Galvalume® steel is used, comprised of a specialized patented alloy coating on the metal virtually impervious to corrosion and 7 times more rust resistant than galvanized. It is the finest quality commercial steel and is made in the US. The buildings are virtually maintenance free as the Galvalume Steel® requires no regular painting or maintenance.

What is Galvalume®?
Galvalume® is a coating on the steel substrate that is applied at the steel mill. This coating is a mixture of some of the most durable metals including Aluminum (55%), Zinc (43%), and Silicon (2%). The advantage of Galvalume® is the aluminum's ability to create a highly corrosion-resistant oxide film combined with the sacrificial action of zinc. The result is a coating which provides excellent corrosion resistance on the sheet (steel panel) while still providing cutting-edge corrosion protection. This unique coating forms an almost impervious (impenetrable) shield over the steel; in laboratory testing it has 7 times the resistance to rust as galvanized. It is extremely effective, especially in regions subjected to corrosive environments or acid rain. For this reason Adaptive offers a 25-year american non-prorated warranty against rust perforation, that is backed by the steel mill.

Almost indestructible and completely fire resistant

Adaptive steel buildings are made of the highest grade heavy gauge steel, unlike cheap alternatives such as carport tin sheds that are easily damaged and blown over in harsher conditions. Buildings are almost indestructible as they are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions with wind and snow loadings suitable for any part of the world. This includes heavy snow, hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes, cyclones and even earthquakes. Buildings are also completely fire resistant.

The quality engineering of the arch-style building features a unique corrugation that acts like thousands of reinforcing steel beams resulting in great strength. As each arch-panel overlaps it simulates having a steel beam every 2’ down the length and similarly simulates having a steel reinforcing plate wherever the panels bolt together.

  • From a minimum of 22 gauge to 20, 18, 16, and 14 gauge, depending on wind loads and snow loads

What is an arch-style steel building?

Adaptive steel buildings are arch-style buildings (often referred to as Quonset Huts). Buildings based on an arch configuration are more affordable, almost indestructible, easy to self-assemble and offer 100% usable space. This is due to the clever design!

There are two main elements to an arch-style building: (1) the arches; and (2) the endwalls. The arch comes in various widths & heights and each arch is 2' in depth (length). This means, by bolting arches together, buildings can be unlimited in length, increasing in 2’ increments The arches and endwalls are shipped in small individual panels that are easily and rapidly bolted together.

Why choose an arch-style steel building?

  • Arch-style steel buildings offer huge cost savings due to the uniquely simple manufacturing process.
  • Buildings can be unlimited in length, by bolting arches together increases the length in 2’ increments.
  • Buildings can be easily expandable anytime in the future, as owners can increase the length of the building by adding more arches.
  • Buildings are virtually maintenance free due to the absence of gutters, downpipes and other troublesome exterior fittings which aren’t required due to the arch-configuration channelling away the rain and snow.
  • Buildings can be built on a floating trough foundation (concrete slab is optional) or, in many cases (where the walls are not to be load bearing), can be fixed or bolted to an existing concrete pad.
  • ​As well as being permanent structures, buildings can also be suitable for temporary use, being engineered to be portable if they need to be moved for industrial or commercial purposes.
  • ​The arches and endwalls are shipped in small individual panels, creating even further cost reductions due to cheaper shipping charges.
  • ​All steel buildings are designed and tested to the highest standards of quality, ensuring compliance with all applicable building codes.

Made in the USA with American Steel

Adaptive steel buildings are 100% American made by American workers, producing and making the best product anywhere in the world. Manufactured in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; buildings are made only from the highest quality, heaviest gauge US commercial steel available.

​Buildings carry an American manufacturers warranty and meet Buy American and American Recovery Acts.
