Future Buildings steel buildings are made from the best steel available in the world today.
- All our steel is purchased directly from ArcelorMittal Dofasco to ensure consistency of quality grade steel and optimal pricing.
- ArcelorMittal Dofasco is the largest steel manufacturer in the world and is one of only two mills in the Americas that produces Galvalume Plus ™ steel to the thickness and specifications that Future Buildings requires making us one of their largest customers.
- All steel between 22 and 14 gauge is AZM 180 Galvalume Plus ™ structural grade (A792-06).
- Galvalume Plus ™ steel is treated with a zinc coating alloy making it highly corrosion resistant and therefore within normal climate conditions we offer a 40 Year Rust Perforation Warranty.
- A minimal use of lubricating oils makes the steel brighter, less slippery or susceptible to marking.
- Production lines permit panel corrugation depths of 3.5”, 7.5” as well as 9.75”.
- Future Buildings’ “one size fits all” fasteners are minimum Grade 2 (ASTM A307) in strength and JS1000 coated (salt spray tested for 1000 hours).
- If requested, fasteners can be upgraded up to Grade 8.2 and DT1500 or stainless steel coated.
As an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of pre-engineered, clear span, arch steel building systems for almost three decades, Future Buildings is proud to employ the foremost engineering, production and customer service professionals in the industry.
