What is a Clear Span Building and What Kind of Roof Does It Require?

Our clear span buildings at Global Carport are so popular because of their versatile design. By designing them without interior columns or other obstructions, we create a wide-open space that’s simple to manufacture and easy to install. The durable steel frame structure is supported by a secure truss system, and the open design also allows for a higher ceiling, creating even more space to use for whatever you need.

Some of the most common applications for our clear span buildings are in the agricultural industry as metal barns or farm buildings, but they also make excellent aircraft hangars or warehouses. With no interior columns for support, the roof of a clear span building does the heavy lifting in terms of support and stability. This design is also more vulnerable to the accumulation of snow or debris if a flat roof is installed. That’s why we only use the superior vertical roof design with our clear span buildings. It has panels which are vertically-aligned to provide excellent protection against extreme weather conditions and additional framing components to enhance durability.

Five Interesting Applications of Clear Span Metal Buildings

The clear span metal building is more versatile than any other custom steel structure we offer at Global Carport, and our customers continue to find new and innovative ways to use them.

Commercial & Workshop Buildings

Commercial metal buildings are one of the most popular uses for the wide-open space a clear span building provides, along with workshop buildings for running a business or private use.

Aircraft Hangar

Own a helicopter or small plane? The high ceilings and uninterrupted open space make Global Carport’s clear span metal buildings the perfect choice for an aircraft hangar!

Outdoor Concert Shelter

If you have a large property and you love hosting concerts or festivals, then an outdoor concert shelter is a must for protecting both the musicians and your valuable equipment. A clear span metal building offers great visibility with excellent protection.
