Comparing red-iron steel buildings and post-frame hybrids
As farm equipment gets larger to make life around the farm more efficient, the need for taller, wider, and longer storage buildings has arose. Back in the early 1950s post-frame buildings (wood frame) and weld-up steel frame kits were some of the only styles of frames available for metal buildings. While those types of structures worked back in the time before individuality and large farm equipment were a mainstay for the market, the time has come for reliable large structures to provide the ultimate solution for farmers. This entails the story of the post-frame industry turning to hybrid steel truss and post-frame buildings to compete with the red-iron steel framed metal buildings of today.
Lucas' brand of red-iron steel structures, Lucas Buildings, offers farmers storage buildings that are completely customizable and built to local code to withstand the likes of Mother Nature's wrath. The red-iron steel structures offer different innovative framing options from clear span framing with no interior columns, single slope designs, lean-to framing options to retrofit to existing buildings, and clear span framing with interior columns for buildings that should be marked as a local land mark for how big they are. Lucas' standard of framing for their brand of metal buildings need no "hybrid" addition of materials to make them meet the demands of farmers across the Midwest. They are simple built custom for your specific needs (e.g., color, height, width, length, framed openings) and are built to last.
