Frequently Asked Questions and Technical Information

What are the benefits of a Cyclone Steel Building?

Our steel buildings are pre-engineered to your exact dimensions, for your bespoke steel building at the factory.  They cost approximately 30% less than traditional construction yet last longer than traditional structures, and steel buildings are easier to maintain than traditional buildings.

Are the steel frames safe and secure?
All steel building frames are engineered to meet the demands of  building codes, weather conditions and custom designs.  What’s more, contrary to wooden frames, steel formations do not change under the influence of weather and any other outside conditions,  your building will remain in great shape for years.

How do I go get drawings for my bespoke steel building?

Cyclone Steel Buildings can provide engineered drawings, this included in the building’s purchase price.

What if I don’t know what type of a building I need?
Identify the building’s requirements; whether it’s for a shop, warehouse, plant, garage, etc. We will need your steel buildings length, width, height and use.  If there are any of these areas that you are unsure of contact us, we are here to help.

Can I choose the design and colour of my steel building?
Yes. Please see our colour chart

Can I add windows and doors into the design of my steel building?
All of our designs may be customized to integrate windows, roller doors, personnel access doors, skylights, lean-to’s and openings. Let us know how you want your bespoke steel building to be and we will design it for you.

What steps are involved in the construction of a steel building?

We’ll ask you for the dimensions of your steel building, type of roof and interior walls, number and placement of doors and windows as well as exterior finishing materials. Engineered drawings are then created based on the design and local building codes. Your steel building is then pre-engineered at the factory and shipped to your construction site. All parts are pre-drilled and ready to be assembled. After the concrete foundation is poured, construction begins.

Can you deliver my building right to my door?

How long will it take to get my building delivered?
