legacy_fabricbuildingMay 6, 2013, South Haven, Minn. — Legacy Building Solutions introduces the industry’s first line of fabric buildings that use structural steel beams instead of open web trusses. The concept provides flexibility for a wide range of applications.

Legacy buildings use a durable, rigid frame, in place of hollow-tube, open web truss framing. Unlike hollow tube steel, Legacy’s solid
steel beams are not vulnerable to unseen corrosion inside a tube. The structural steel has multiple coating options, including hot
dip galvanizing, red oxide primer and powder coat paint.

steel frame has the
flexibility to customize buildings to the
exact width, length and height required. The design allows for wide doors, and adding side doors is simple.
Structures can be modified to provide desired eave extensions and interior
columns. They can also be engineered to handle additional loads for conveyors,
sprinklers and even commodity loads on the sidewalls.

Legacy buildings feature
high-quality polyethylene fabric roofs that eliminate most corrosion concerns. A wide variety of PVC fabrics are
also available. The durable fabric allows natural light to permeate the
structure, while insulation can be added to meet energy codes when required.


Sidewalls can be customized and built with any desired
material — including steel, paneling or siding — and then lined with
fabric to prevent corrosion to the interior. Legacy steel components and fabric
covers are backed by a 15-year warranty.

Legacy offers assistance from
concept to completion, including renderings, foundation design, installation
and project management.
