Agricultural Steel Buildings

Your building can be designed with wide openings to accommodate Bi-Fold & Hydraulic doors to allow the largest possible agricultural equipment to drive in for storage and protection.

  • Designed to Canadian Building Codes
  • Traditional and custom designs available
  • Mold and termite proof – no wood is used in our building
  • Low maintenance and Best Warranty available in Canada
  • Construction process is faster & easier than building with alternative materials

The Global Steel Buildings package will provide the most economical and long lasting metal building available in Canada. Our building comes with a warranty that is second to none; 40 year warranty on the colour steel wall sheeting and trim, 25 year rust perforation warranty on the Galvalume steel roof sheeting and LIFETIME on the stainless steel fasteners.

At Global Steel Buildings we understand that Farmers are business people and need to maximize their investment. The Global Steel Building can be designed with wide openings to work with Bi-Fold and Hydraulic doors to allow the largest possible agricultural equipment to drive in for storage and protection. All of Agricultural Steel Buildings are engineered to withstand the extremes of the Canadian climate; we can design to any Province or Territory. Our designers are Canadian and live in Canada – we know what it takes to design an Agricultural Steel Building for our climate conditions.

Our Accessories Department will ensure your metal building is equipped with the correct doors, windows, vents – just to name a few of our available accessories. Our buildings are simple to erect and are maintenance free. Contact us so one of our designers can engineer the steel building you need today.

Global Agricultural Steel Buildings are superior to wood pole barns and wood pole buildings – learn why!

Roof

Global Steel Buildings

Global kits consist of maintenance-free AZ55 Galvalume®. AZ55 which consists of 55% aluminum, 44% zinc and 1% silicon.
This also allows the steel mill to give 25 year rust through warranty on perforation. If a hole develops in a panel, the steel mill will replace it.

Wood Pole Barns

Offers only a 15 year guarantee on the roof sheeting. Typically Wood Pole Barn buildings only use sheeting with a zinc coating that eventually will oxidize, fade then rust.

Fasteners

Global Steel Buildings

Our capped fasteners are stainless steel. They won’t rust and includes a lifetime warranty. It is very important that the fasteners be compatible with the AZ55 or AZ50 because the steel mill will not warranty the wood pole barn roof if they’re incompatible.

Wood Pole Barns

Wood Pole Barn buildings typically use fasteners with an alloy head that will tarnish turning dark gray or black. The roof of the wood pole barn loses its luster and beauty.

Roof panels

Global Steel Buildings

Our roof panels are made of steel consisting of an 80 yield, 26 gauge AZ55 Galvalume.
Our steel buildings have a 1½” depth in our corrugation in the sheeting. Our extra depth of corrugation adds strength to the roof.
The sheeting on the roof of our steel buildings has a depth of 1½” in the corrugation. The depth adds strength to the roof.
Our panels overlap (called a reversed “L”) prevents water from backing up through the overlap into the Global Steel Building.

Wood Pole Barns

Wood pole barn buildings typically only use 29 gauge steel on the roof, which is lighter than 26 gauge steel, and only a 5/8″ depth of corrugation that does not provide the extra strength the Global Steel building has.
Some of pole barn kit manufacturing competitors use an ‘R’ panel roof, which means the sheeting only overlaps one third of the way into the corrugation. This doesn’t prevent leakage as well as the reverse ‘L’ design that our factory uses because the water will back up into the pole building.

Paint

Global Steel Buildings

The paint used on our Steel buildings has a 40 year warranty against chipping, cracking, peeling and blistering. It is a baked-on polyester paint so that the Global Steel Building maintains its colour and beauty over time.

Wood Pole Barns

Wood pole building manufacturer’s typically only warranty the roof for 10, 15 or 20 years.

Purlins and Girts

Global Steel Buildings

Our Buildings purlins and girts are superior 16 gauge zinc-galvanized.

Wood Pole Barns

Wood pole building manufacturers typically use wood purlins and girts which will bow or bend causing screws to loosen, sheets to flap and leaks to occur within the pole barn.

Frames

Global Steel Buildings

Our Steel building consists of rigid frame, plate steel and H beam construction. Since no wood is used in our building – no warping will occur, there’s no risk of fire or termites AND insurance premiums will be less expensive than for wood pole barn kits. Our buildings have a 40 year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship on all structural components.
Our buildings truss does not need a cord going across which means there is complete unobstructed space within. Birds cannot perch and defecate on the equipment and machinery inside the wood pole barn, which will save you tremendous costs on maintenance.

Wood Pole Barns

Wood pole buildings manufactured with wooden frames will eventually warp over time. They can also become a fire hazard and become a target for termites and other insects – raising the costs of insurance. Wood Pole Buildings are more expensive to insure.
Wood pole building manufacturers typically require a cord spanning across the truss width causing tremendous loss of space. This creates perch for birds – potentially damaging your machinery and equipment.
