Get primary metal framing for any standard or custom building application.
Whirlwind offers a variety of pre-engineered framing for use in any application — or we can customize framing to meet your exact needs.
Standard framing options include:
Welded Rigid Frame (WRF): Choose this option to achieve the widest possible spans without interior columns. The tapered members of the WRF make it an economical choice for hangars and other wide-open applications
Lean-Tos (LT): Ideal for use as office structures, attached to larger buildings, lean-to framing is an economical solution for expanding existing buildings. This simple span frame design provides minimal horizontal thrust so foundation costs are minimized
Column and Beam (CB): For wide buildings requiring interior columns, CB frames may be used with bar joist roof purlins and interior columns may be recessed for a clean appearance
Single Slope Welded Ridged Frame (SSRF): This building layout is ideal when drainage restrictions are issues, such as in strip shopping centers. This single slope welded ridged frame is available with straight columns and interior columns
Welded Tapered Beam (WTB): The welded tapered beam is a great choice for maximizing floor space. The straight sidewalls make it easier to install interior finishes and, because of the minimal horizontal frame base reaction, a less costly foundation can be used
