Rhino Dispels Metal Building Insulation Myths

by : Rhino

Rhino Steel BuildingSystems, Denton, Texas - Many potential buyers of steel buildings believe that they are difficult to insulate from the weather. This is absolutely not true, according to Bruce Brown, president of Rhino Steel Building Systems. 'We have several effective methods of insulating our pre-engineered buildings, and none greater than our newest insulation package, named the Rhino Pro Value Insulation System. ' Many of the problems with insulating pre-fabricated Steel Buildings have to do more with errors in installation than anything else. It's true, that the entropy (or temperature migration) of steel is far greater than wood, and if improperly installed, exposed metal purlins and girts can import extreme temperature from outside the building. The Rhino Pro Value package includes the use of insulators and the almost complete filling of the purlin and girt cavities that virtually eliminate temperature transfer. Additionally, a special liner fabric protects from condensation that can plague metal buildings not otherwise protected. 'We offer other types of insulation that are also effective and can provide helpful installation tips as well,' Brown says. One added bonus of the Rhino Pro Value System has to do with a special low maintenance vapor barrier that covers the otherwise exposed purlins and girts. If this is installed, it creates a professional 'finished look' to the interior eliminating the need for painting or covering the interior with more expensive and less effective materials.

Rhino Steel Building Systems is organized in two division, the Steel Buildings division and Steel frame homes division. Steel buildings can include virtually any type of building application imaginable, such as steel barns, steel garages, horse barn designs, small or giant manufacturing plants, modular industrial office, steel gymnasiums, churches, metal storage buildings, office buildings, horse arenas, aircraft hangars, auto repair buildings and many more. A Rhino metal building is specifically designed to meet wind and snow load requirements for the buyer's specific area of the country as well as other requirements related to the performance of the structure. Rhino does not sell an arch steel building. Rhino's steel frame home division sells a unique "panelized" framing kit, including walls, trusses and all other framing materials and fasteners necessary to complete the basic framing system. Here again, Rhino's all steel homes are not prefab homes but steel frame buildings specifically designed for a wide variety of family needs in varying environments. Also, pre-fab homes do not have the modern architecture that typify rhino all steel homes.
