Horse stables have different requirements and these must be structurally sound, durable, fire, wind and weather resistant, and capable of housing animals weighing nearly a ton. Climate and other factors must be considered such as ability to house riding horse or breeding stock. A steel barn building must meet all the necessary conditions for providing a safe and warm environment for housing horses and other livestock. Unlike traditional buildings, there are many advantages of having a steel barn building, such as faster construction, durable, insurance benefits, cost-efficient, safety and high level of convenience.
A barn made of steel can be manufactured, delivered and easily erected with pre-engineered steel barn buildings, and it can be put up in a matter of few months as compared to six to nine months time required in building a structure made of traditional materials. Unlike wooden structures, steel horse stables are free from insects, which less likely to house vermin, and it will not rot, deteriorate or crack. Steel barn buildings doesn’t need painting, no replacement of rotten boards, no replacement of roof tiles and more time enjoying riding for at least twenty years. In contrary to the hefty insurance costs for traditional wooden barns, the fire resistant nature of steel makes property and fire insurance premiums a lot cheaper for steel barns and buildings. You are assured that your horses and other livestock are safe and secure in a steel barn or building, because if it is kicked, steel will not splinter, and there is no wood exposure for horses to chew or bite, reducing concerns about injuries or ‘cribbing’ caused by ingestion of pre-treated fragments of wood. As compared to traditional barns, steel barns have lower construction and maintenance costs. Because of the zero maintenance and expected lifespan of steel buildings, steel is a cheaper option in the long run as compared to other building materials. With the use of steel, it’s more convenient adding extra features such as doors, feeders, dividers, and watering options. Partitions can be put up to provide spaces for feed and track and equipment storage with steel, as well as installation of kits needed for a fully functional horse barn, that can be customized for the number of stalls and additional features.
