Structural Strength of Regular Metal Horse Barns
Steel gauge is the unit that measures the thickness and the strength of the steel components. Higher gauge number usually corresponds to less thickness, and as a result lower strength of the steel. We offer our standard non-certified metal horse barns with 14-gauge steel tube framing while certified structures are provided with 12-gauge framing. Even if you have a non-certified metal horse barn, you can upgrade to 12-gauge units just for the added structural strength.
We offer four types of anchors that are used to fix the metal horse barn to the ground. Your choice for the metal barn anchor depends on the type of surface you want to install the unit on and on the certification type of the metal horse barn.
Our certified units come with mobile home anchors for installation over dirt/asphalt surfaces and concrete/wedge anchors over concrete surfaces. Similarly, non-certified units are anchored with rebar anchors over dirt/asphalt surfaces. We use lag bolts for installations over wooden surface. However, we never certify these units.
All of our regular metal horse barns come with at least corner braces for the main aisle as well as the lean-tos. These braces improve the strength of the barn by fixing the roof structure to the legs. Certified metal barns come with the necessary support as per the weather conditions. But for non-certified barns, you can choose to add extra braces and bows at an additional cost.
