Steel Wide Span Buildings

American Steel Carports has been the leading steel carport manufacturer in its industry time and time again, serving over 30 states and specializing in steel structures such as garages, lean-tos, and mini storages. It’s no wonder why customers recognize our steel buildings all over the United States. American Steel Carport’s is constantly pushing steel buildings to the next level—but did you know that American Steel Carports has the skills and manpower to build industrial-sized steel wide buildings? Our industrial-sized steel wide buildings are standard-built in widths of between 32-40 ft. and lengths of up to 50 ft. However, our steel wide span units can be built up to an impressive 80 ft. wide and a sky-scraping 20 ft. in leg height, most often requiring the use of machinery.* If that wasn’t impressive enough, our wide spans can be made to meet almost any length specifications. Because of our wide span framing systems, we make it easy for you to add future extensions to your steel buildings as your needs grow.



American Steel Carports’ metal wide spans are made in both our 12 and 14-gauge acrylic-coated galvanized C/Z tubing, ensuring that they have the strongest frames possible. They are built with our heavy duty A-frame vertical roof as an only option. When enclosing a wide span unit, you will notice that the side and end panels are also installed vertically. This style will give your structure maximum strength.



When a customer decides to place an order for a wide span building, however, there are a few things that they should know. First, all wide spans must be installed on concrete piers, slabs, or footers. There are a number of reasons why this is required, but the main one is to ensure the durability and longevity of the structure’s placement. Although American Steel Carports does not pour concrete or do any concrete work, we staff the most educated engineers in the industry, and they will always be happy to assist you with any questions as well as offer recommendations regarding your foundation. In addition, from our experiences with installing large units, customers who purchase wide span buildings will most likely be required to obtain construction permits. Although American Steel Carports leaves the responsibility of contacting their local code enforcement to its customers, our company will make it easy for you to obtain a copy of the generic plans or certified blueprints of your structure.**



From steel mini storages to metal wide spans, no size is too small or too big. Let American Steel Carports be your number one choice for your next project. Protect your heavy duty equipment or expand your business with an American Steel wide span unit today.
