While most rigid framed pre-engineered metal buildings are similar in design and function, there are a lot of places to cut corners. Money and weight can be saved in numerous areas including; primary framing, secondary framing, bracing, panel gauge, finishes, and fasteners. Armstrong Steel takes pride in having the absolute best building system available today. BAR NONE.

Engineering & Design

Per the ASCE 7-10 the American Institute of Steel Construction steel members are designed to carry a very specific load. It is up to the sealing professional engineer to determine what percentage of the max load each member will support in the building system. As a standard, Armstrong only loads to 80% of design maximum. The end result is a stronger, heavier building that is more capable of surviving extreme weather events. Many companies looking to cut corners will design to 100% or even 110%, resulting in a lighter (and therefore cheaper to manufacture) building. It is buildings like these that fail in heavy snow or wind events. Think their "warranty" will cover a failure due to snow, wind, or earthquake? Guess again! Read the fine print. Building warranties only cover structural defects, like cracked welds due to "normal" conditions not 50 or 100 year storm events.


Detailing is the process of designing each structural piece of steel, ensuring purlin and girt clips line up to the corresponding punch patterns in the secondary framing and calculating material quantities like screws and closures. Armstrong Steel details all buildings in house at our corporate office in Greenwood Village, Colorado, not in India like so many of our competitors. Our detailers work together as a team, all speak the same language and report directly to the executive staff. Armstrong refuses to work with contract detailers because quality and accuracy are rarely concerns with overseas design firms. The benefit to our customers is they're able to call and speak directly to the engineering team and detailer that has intimate knowledge of their project.


Armstrong will not leave a wall inadequately braced. Regardless of what other companies may tell you, panel shear bracing (using wall panels as lateral bracing), torsional bracing, or strap bracing is never sufficient, ever! If cable or rod bracing will not work in a side wall due to openings, Armstrong will use a portal frame to supply the necessary bracing. If a rigid frame is needed in an endwall, Armstrong won't lessen it's building with a rod to frame brace. You will receive the necessary iron to do the job right!
