What is a Steel Portal Frame Building?
Steel portal framed buildings are fairly low-rise structures used to build warehouses, barns, and other open-space buildings in a cost-efficient and fast manner.
We have a more detailed article on portal frames here.
They are very rigid structures, which is great for longevity, and the simple nature of construction makes them cost and time-efficient.
They’re typically available as a freestanding symmetrical pitched roof or as a mono-pitched roof that can be attached to an existing structure.
They can be manufactured with substantial eaves/haunch and bracing, for maximum stability of all joints and foundations.
We are located in Sheffield but serve the entire UK. Conveniently located in South Yorkshire for businesses around York, Bradford, Leeds, Chesterfield, and Manchester.

Benefits of Steel Portal Framed Buildings for Businesses
Now that we’ve introduced you to why steel framed buildings are beneficial for all sorts of construction projects, it’s time to go into more detail. Below, you’ll find additional benefits from these types of frames:
- Comparatively, there is no better value for money than with this type of construction;
- Off-site assembly reduces costs by assembling components in a low-cost manner, enhancing worker safety while reducing construction times;
- Buildings with steel portal frames can be strengthened, if necessary, to withstand high winds and snowfall;
- Buildings built with steel portal frames can be easily extended or moved at a later date.
- Steel as a material has strength and is very durable, designed to stay strong under load.
Our reputable team can design, manufacture, and install any steel portal frame as per specific client requirements. In addition to this, we also offer a wide range of additional options such as fire escapes, staircases, cladding, columns, rafters, insulation, blockwork, panels, beams, windows, racking that is adjustable, and access ladders.
Ideal for several business types, including warehouses, workshops, retail locations, and agricultural buildings. This versatile steel frame structure will give you extra storage, more floor space, office space, engineering space, and make use of previously unused areas.
Steel portal frame buildings offer many different benefits and they ensure that you have the best results within your budget. Each steel portal frame building that is constructed by our team is carefully engineered by experts to meet UKCA marking after Brexit.
Because steel portal frame buildings are very easy and quick to build with good durability, little to no maintenance is required in the long-term. These types of buildings offer exceptional flexibility and they provide an economic way of providing space.
They can last between 50 and 100 years with proper maintenance. If you’re interested in the fire performance of steel structures, see this document at Steelconstruction.info.
