Converting Your Metal Building Into a Workshop


Workshop spaces have never been in such a high demand as they are now. At American Steel Carports, we like to provide our customers with high-quality materials and deliver a great experience when it comes to installations.



Among the two different types of garage doors that we offer (roll-up doors and overhead doors) and the sizes they come in, it’s important to understand one requirement of the units. When a roll-up door exceeds 10’ in width, it has to be chain-hoisted. Because this means that these doors will close from the inside (which is a fire hazard), the units of all doors that are bigger than 10’ x 10’ must also have a walk-in door or another way to get in and out.



Check out this 30’ x 41’ x 12’ steel building used as a workshop with a 12’ x 12’ roll-up door. You can clearly see the chain hoist and the walk-in door that has been added to the side of the building to increase access.

Our priorities are to give you a durable and strong metal building, but we also want to meet your expectations. Remember, the building is completely yours, so you’re welcome to customize it as much as you like, placing features such as doors and windows at your desired locations.



Remember that we offer a one-year workmanship warranty, allowing your building to go through all four seasons before the warranty expires. You can protect your investment by making sure that it’s well-constructed and safe all year round.
