The basic parameters that define a Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings are:
No matter what primary framing system is used, the building width is defined as the distance from outside of eave strut of one sidewall to outside of eave strut of the opposite sidewall. Building width does not include the width of Lean-To buildings or roof extensions.
The distance between the outside flanges of end-wall columns in opposite end-walls is the building length. It is a combination of several bay lengths.
Building height is the eave height, which usually is the distance from the bottom of the main-frame column base plate to the top outer point of the eave strut. When columns are recessed or elevated from finished floor, eave height is the distance from finished floor level to top of eave strut.
Roof Slope (x/10)
This is the angle of the roof with respect to the horizontal. The most common roof slopes are 0.5/10 and 1/10. Any practical roof slope is possible.
End bay length
The distance from outside of the outer flange of end-wall columns to centerline of the first interior frame column.
Interior bay length
The distance between the centerlines of two adjacent interior mainframe columns. The most common bay lengths are 6 m, 7.5 m and 9 m.
