“Clear span” is an architectural terminology used to describe prefabricated steel buildings as well as bridges. The span of a building simply refers to the width of its framing. Prefabricated clear span buildings from Smart-Space UK are self-supporting which means they don’t need support columns. Buildings of this nature have the advantage of internal spaces that are free of obstructions.
Because steel is much stronger than wood, prefab metal buildings are ideal if you are looking for long or short-term storage space. Smart-Space’s Maxi Space is the best option to choose when you require a large, single clear span building. With heaves of about 12 m, and 60 m spans — Maxi Space is a cost-effective building design that allows you to maximize your space.
What are the benefits & uses of clear span buildings?
It is true to say that large-scale agricultural businesses have a huge need for equipment, shelter, and barns with vast volumes of spaces. Farm tractors, combine harvesters, threshers and other heavy-duty equipment all require facilities with plenty of storage space. Clear span buildings are designed to provide enough room for farmers and all kinds of businesses that demand more space to manoeuvre their equipment with ease.
For example, warehouse operators demand wide spaces to allow for quick access to their stock quickly and efficiently. Columns within a building make moving around extra cumbersome. On the other hand, clear span buildings can greatly simplify warehouse operations.
· Clear buildings for churches and schools
Many religious institutions opt for clear span structures. After all, steel columns can hinder movement within a church. Clear span buildings can function as auditoriums for educational institutions as well as cinemas. Basically, any building that houses a large audience needs to be a clear span structure.
