Yes, you will receive our manual that covers everything from unloading the truck, stacking material, temporary bracing,rigid frame setup, and much more. Plus, you will have additional drawings in the back of our printed plans package that gets very detailed down to final assemblies. Along with the manual and drawings, we have a very experienced staff of professional steel people that can answer all of your questions.
First, you will need an all terrain fork truck capable of lifting 5000 lbs at least 15 feet. Depending on the height of your building, you may require a scissor lift for installing sheeting and making bolt connections at rafter splices and column to rafter splices. This can be a great help when installing sheeting and insulation. Second, you will require a chop saw or some way to cut steel. If you have field located openings there may be girts you will have to cut to get the framed opening in place. Some items will arrive in 20 foot sections and must be cut to size in the field such as base angle or channel. You will need metal shears or snipes for sheeting and most trim. Finally a torque controlled screw gun. The fasteners for the sheeting are mostly self drilling but it is extremely important that you fasten them to the torque required to bottom out the cone washer on the head of the screw and not over tighten. Lastly patients, do not cut or change something because you don’t think it’s correct. Call first with questions, we are here to help and guide you through the erection process. 719-268-1325
Rapidset Buildings is staffed with professional people that have been in the industry for many years. This is not a company of high pressure fast talking sales people that have one goal only, to sell. We have all been in the field, know and understand the building parts and locations, and are capable of solving problems that may come up. We know our buildings and can answer any questions you may have. Back to the question, we can help with your entire building, from design to options and suggest money saving alternatives for your building requirements. We can answer any questions from original design to building erection problems.
On a standard quote or online quote you will receive a full metal building, all sheeting, trim, roof and wall sheets, tapes, closures, all secondary steel all primary steel full drawing packages along with all fasteners and hardware required to put your building together. We do not supply any fasteners that attach to the concrete because they should be set before the building arrives. We supply delivery to your site address, with on time service, along with 2 sets of engineer stamped prints for your state. It would be easier to state what is not supplied. The equipment to unload material off the truck. The erection of your building to a finished product. Anchor bolts that should have already been installed by the concrete people.
There should never be the requirement for welding. However a cutting torch may come in very handy. This may be needed for walk door location if you have a wall girt less than 7’ 6” high. The most common is to install the cross bracing on end walls. You will have to burn holes into the wall girts to allow the cross bracing to pass through.
