Metal Building Bracing Conditions
Metal buildings face constant stress from wind forces including torsion, shear, compression, and lift. To counteract this pressure, steel buildings utilize different forms of bracing in the roof and walls to transfer the loads. For most steel buildings, x bracing each wall with cables provides all the bracing that is needed. However, high wind loads, high snow loads, high seismic activity, or a large number of framed openings might result in alternative bracing methods.
Cable or Rod Bracing
Fixed Base or Wind Column Bracing
Portal Frame or Wind Bent Bracing
