Special hurricane/marine exposure building packages

Prime Steel Buildings is the leading pioneer in the industry protecting against hurricane and salt corrosion conditions. This is accomplished with special features designed for high wind and marine environments subjected to extreme salt exposure conditions. To combat aggressive corrosive environments the factory offers a complete galvanizing option. This upgrade protects every primary and secondary framing component with a hot dipped galvanized G-90 (or heavier) coating. Every frame bolt is also upgraded to strictly galvanized fasteners as well; galvanized anchor bolts are also available for further longevity.
