The importance of steel structures for the agricultural industry

Steel structures are widely used in the agricultural industry, for a number of applications such as the storage of produce, livestock shelter, processing , workshops, equipment storage and more. It is thus essential that these structures are quality structures that will meet the farmer / agriculturalist’s requirements and needs. The following factors should be considered when building a steel farm structure, to ensure an effective structure is built:

  • Location / site: The location of the structure is an important factor to consider. The structure needs to be easily accessible and near enough for the intended purpose. Consider aspects such as water points, security and communication. Transportations between buildings and processes should also be taken into consideration, as it should be kept to a minimum.
  • Type / Use: The intended use of the structure will be the main factor to determine the type, size and design of the structure. The steel farm structure needs to be large enough for its intended purpose, and meet the client’s needs in terms of application and functionality.
  • Optimise on floor space: The design of an A-frame house allows you to optimise on floor space and headspace, so that you can utilise each corner of your home effectively.
  • Flooring and doors: Take into account the type of flooring and doors (if required), to ensure it meets the client’s requirements. Pretorius Structures can assist with flooring, mezzanine floors and a variety of options for doors.
