Build it strong with IAS certified red iron.

In addition to panels, trim and accessories, we also manufacture a variety of sub-structural steel framing members. We offer red iron in both red-oxide and bare galvanized in gauges 12, 14 and 16. All purlins can be manufactured in LGSI sections and with custom punch patterns. PLUS, we’re IAS accredited so you know you’ll be building with confidence.

Although we don’t manufacture primary framing members, we can put you in touch with partner vendors who can design and build anything you come up with.
