Trachte building specifications

Trachte prefabricated buildings are available in sizes up to 32 feet wide. Every Trachte shelter is built around a load-bearing Channelframe™ framework to ensure a lifetime of structural durability and permanence. This sturdy framework also affords design flexibility, a variety of attractive building exteriors, greater insulation values and steeper roofs that will not leak. Due to trusses on both end walls, building expansion is hassle free.

Competitors rely on inferior self-framing or pan-style construction techniques. As the frame is on the exterior, ambient temperature can be transferred rapidly into the structure. Trachte buildings, on the other hand, use a combination of sidings, coatings and thermal breaks which can stand up to the rigors of climatic extremes.

Our design team includes electrical engineers for layout and design support and to supervise building integration. Typical specifications and complete drawings are available to facilitate your initial design and engineering.

Design requirements: Building construction conforms to the latest editions of ASCE “Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures,” the MBMA “Design Practices Manual,” the International Building Code, and the National Electric Code.
Building framework: Building is framed with a structural steel Channelframe™ framework, with girts, purlins, eave struts, base channels and angle braces, with solid web roof trusses, including the end walls. Framework is 10- to 16-gauge galvanized steel.
Insulation: Exterior walls have a minimum of 3.5” fiberglass batt insulation and a Visqueen vapor barrier. The ceiling has a minimum of 6” cellulose insulation and a Visqueen vapor barrier. Entire building has 1" fiberglass blanket insulation draped over framework as a thermal break before exterior sheeting is installed. The insulation will provide a minimum of R-19 in the walls, R-24 above the ceiling, and R-30 in the floor.
Roof: Gable roof is standard with specified pitch. Roofing is 26-, 24- or 18-gauge ribbed steel panels, with baked on Kynar® 500 PVDF resin-based finish over a G-90 galvanized substrate. Roof includes ridge cap, and a fully supported 3" overhang.
Exterior walls: Exterior walls are 26-, 24- or 18-gauge ribbed steel panels, with a baked-on Kynar® 500 PVDF resin-based finish over G-90 galvanized substrate. Exterior panels are overlapped and all openings in walls are structurally framed, sleeved, trimmed, and provided with drip caps. Exterior wall panels are to be removable from the outside without interrupting on line service.
