Building Specifications

custom fiberglass reinforced panel buildings

General Description

Our typical custom-built fiberglass buildings consist of fiberglass-reinforced-polyester laminated and foam-cored composite walls, floors and ceilings. Our fiberglass buildings come with floors that can be built to specifications or set up with simple tie down flanges. The doors are custom molded to desired sizes and features the same construction as the enclosure with reinforcements.

Design Loading

  • Wind Rating: 75 MPH for standard buildings; a 135 MPH wind rating with custom fabrication
  • Ground Snow Load: Pg=30 PSF, 70 PSF w/reinforcement
  • Seismic Zone - 1
  • Other options custom quoted
 

Construction

The exterior finish consists of an ultraviolet-resistant, 15-20 mil thick molded gel coat. The Fiberglass Reinforced Panels (FRP) are one piece, heavy gauge, premium fiberglass weather-tight bonded skins that are 1/8" thick and molded together over a minimum ASTM E 84, Class 11 rating. Our panels are fire retardant and consist of - at minimum - 2 lbs. per cu. ft. polyurethane foam or better. Some of these systems are modular to conform to the requirements of the specifications. All cutouts to accommodate fans, louvers, hatches and other fixtures are reinforced. Equipment can be hung from the reinforced walls and roof. All connections utilize stainless steel fasteners and hardware.
