Portable Storage Buildings - More Info:

While seasonal needs are a major reason for preference of portable buildings over permanent buildings, the general cost effectiveness of such structures has contributed to their growing use and popularity. Installing portable metal buildings is an effective way to avoid spending money on setting up expensive permanent buildings. Since there is no need for a concrete base, construction costs are significantly lower with portable metal buildings than with permanent buildings. Moreover, these buildings have almost a zero-maintenance feature, and there is no need to be concerned about permanently losing yard space.

Portable metal buildings are made for both domestic and commercial applications. They are commonly used for storage purposes, though other uses are not uncommon. For example, a portable metal building can be used in houses for storing electrical and communications equipment, while commercially, these buildings can be used for storing construction equipment. Their metal construction helps them handle the fury of nature, particularly hurricane-force winds, heavy rains, and blizzards.

An industry that makes major use of portable metal buildings is the construction industry. These strong and sturdy buildings provide protection from burglary while offering flexibility in moving them from one construction site to another. Based on the size, these portable metal buildings can be moved using a forklift or a crane, even when they are packed with materials inside.

A: William, Unfortunately I don't have a picture of what you are talking about to study, but I am familiar with panels close to your description. These panels were used as a liner panels on the inside of a metal walls, as a soffit panels and some limitied high slope roof applications over decking because they have a very low structural capacity. Englert makes a panel Model A1101 that may be close to this. I am not sure that is what you have here but it sure sounds like it. Thanks for your question, Dale Nelson Roof Hugger, Inc.
