PEB Components and Advantages

Pre-Engineered Buildings also known as PEB have taken over the construction market by their multiple advantages and virtues. A PEB manufacturer designs a PEB and has a single design fabricated using various materials as well as methods that can satisfy different kinds of aesthetic and structural requirements of clients.  Hence, one could say that a pre-engineered building is made of components that are manufactured at a factory and assembled at a particular site.

PEBs are structures of steel and have been booming in the construction market as alternatives to conventional steel buildings. The components of every PEB are fabricated at the manufacturing factory to an exact size and are transported to the main site for assembling the same. The main components building up the PEBs are:

  • The structural steel framing system
  • Metal roofing system
  • And Wall panels of various materials

In order to design a pre-engineered building with precision, a clear span between bearing points, roof slope, live loads, dead loads and much more needs to be determined. These buildings can be adapted to suit a wide range of structural applications, which leads to potential savings in the area of a structural framework as well.

Let’s take a look at the components of a Pre-Engineered Building:

Pre-Engineered Buildings Component & Advantage

#1 – Main Frame or Vertical Columns:

The mainframes consist of rigid steel frames of the building. These steel frames are made of tapered columns and tapered rafters. They are fabricated using state of the art technology at BRPL, while the flanges of the same are welded.

#2 – End Wall Framing:

An end wall framing is designed as a main rigid frame. The beam end wall system of framing consists of columns with pinned ends and these supporting the horizontal rafters are known as end wall rafters.

#3 – Purlins, Girts and Eave Struts:

These are secondary components of a PEB. In this preparation, there is no need for welding. They are prepared by wielding the steel coil in order to give the same desired shape. The Z shape is for purlins and girts and the C-shape is for eave struts.

#4 – Crane System:

The crane system is utilized to improve material handling productivity hence allowing more utilization of space by reducing traffic due to forklifts. The runaway beams of the crane are supported via built-up sections with the cap channels.

#5 – Sheeting and Insulation:

The sheets made of steel are galvanized profile sheets that are permanently coated with colour. These sheets are coated with special paints to enhance their anti-corrosion properties. They are insulated through insulation slabs and the steel sheets are fixed on top of the same as roofing steel sheets.

#6 – Mezzanine System:

The mezzanine system is a framing system that consists of a black deck supported by joists framed into the main mezzanine beams.

#7 – Paints and Touches:

Pre-painted steel is produced on a high-speed coil, painting lines where the surface preparation prior to painting and paint curing is done on a highly automated line under optimum conditions. 

Let’s look at the advantages of PEB:

Pre-Engineered buildings have a number of advantages the very foremost one being they reduce construction time. Here are the major advantages of PEBs:

  1. PEBs have satisfied a large range of structural and aesthetic requirements. The components used in the making of PEBs are engineered beforehand and standardized as well. The use of customized software for design and drafting reduces the speed of the project. 
  2. The design time of the PEBs is comparatively lower than that of standard buildings. Moreover, the frames of PEB’ offer higher resistance to seismic forces. 
  3. Owing to the arrival of the systems approach, there is a saving in design manufacturing as well as site erecting costs. The diagrams of PEBs are shaped in a manner that reduces the cost, weight and load to foundations. 
  4. Pre-Engineered Buildings are 30-35% lighter than conventional steel structures as they are made up of simple designs and are easier to construct. 
  5. Bansal Roofing provides the complete PEB package, hence availing PEB services from a single vendor assures compatibility and quality of components. 
  6. PEB has the capacity to endure weather conditions and has one of the highest durability. PEBs often come with the best warranties in the construction industry.
