Commercial Industrial Prefabricated Concrete Sectional Buildings
The construction of these buildings is similar to concrete sectional garages since the same panels are utilised to create the lower exterior of the building; Plastisol coated box profile steel sheeting is then used to ‘build-up’ to the required height and also used to roof the building. Often the client can specify this sheeting in one of 10 popular colours to match the local environment, regulations or corporate image.
Generally these buildings offer much greater under-door clearance than their domestic counterparts and can be specified at varied heights to achieve clearances for minibuses, trailers, forklift trucks, lorries and buses. Because of height, a roller door is generally the preferred type of operation with options for automation.
In almost all cases a commercial project such as this will require planning permission and should the internal floor area being exceeding 30m² then so too Building Control and we can assist fully with such matters including generation of full structural calculations and elevations.
One of the advantages of specifying a prefabricated concrete building is that it is often constructed within a day.

Accommodating your 4WD vehicle
Coupled with the increasing popularity of the 4WD leisure vehicle comes a demand for increased size and height of replacement concrete sectional garages.
Typically a prefabricated building is 6ft6in (1.98m) to eaves which provides actual under-door clearances in the region of 6ft1in (1.8m). For example this height is equal to that of a Land Rover Discover and a Classic Range Rover and that’s before your consider the roof rack and aerial!
Most manufacturers of concrete sectional buildings offer an increased eaves and door clearance; some can achieve greater clearance simply by exchanging the main door for vertical-lift ‘shutter’ type operation. There is a common misconception that roof style will affect actual internal clearance, this simply is not true.
We recommend an eaves height no less that 7ft6in (2.29m) as other factors such as the slope towards your garage may reduce your actual clearance as well as a weather-bar situated behind the door. Only a few manufacturers can offer 7ft6in panel height as the technology behind fabricating such a tall panel escapes some brands.
It is worthwhile to note that even at 2.29m to eaves this building is still below one of the planning thresholds which places a restriction at 3.0m to eaves and 4.0m to ridge height.
