This unique paint coating combines proprietary resin technology with color-fast
ceramic pigments for maximum color retention and resistance to fading. This finish has undergone
rigorous testing to ensure exceptional durability with long lasting aesthetics.
For superior panels, Foltz uses G100 galvanizing – one of the heaviest in the
industry, recognized for its superior corrosion resistance. Outstanding performance with a 9″ rib
spacing provides over 80,000 P.S.I. tensile strength. Available in a wide variety of colors and trim
Roof and wall panels are screwed on. Soffits and fascia are all steel, not
Foltz Buildings have been engineered to meet and exceed maximum snow and wind
requirements of the upper midwest.
All trusses are 4′ on center.
We use 2″ X 6″ Wall Girts: these provide a wider nailing surface
and more wind
resistance for a rigid, long-lasting wall system.
We use 2″ X 8″ Treated Bottom Nailer: this is treated for
maximum protection of
steel from contact with the ground or cement floor or apron. Made of Southern Yellow Pine and
pressure treated for protection against decay. The industry standard is Ponderosa Pine but we
use Southern Yellow Pine because it is subjected to a higher quality treatment process.
Glu-Laminated Finger Jointed Columns: these are significantly
field spliced nailed columns. Each column is continuous from the base (set in concrete) to the
top chord of the truss.
Concrete Footings: these are a standard feature with Foltz
Buildings. Steel pins
are installed in columns that are anchored in 180 lbs. of concrete per hole.
2″ X 6″ Diagonal Corner Bracings: this is fastened to columns
and wall girts in
each corner to further strengthen the entire structure.
Machine Stressed Rated Lumber: engineered, factory built trusses
are designed to
meet and exceed maximum snow and wind requirements of the upper midwest. All trusses are 4′ on
Machine Stressed Rated Lumber: Diagonal Roof Bracing is used for
strength and rigidity, providing additional wind resistance to the superstructure. Diagonal Roof
Bracing is used for buildings over 40 feet in width.
Continuous Lateral Bracing: this has been engineered to provide
to truss support in heavy snow or wind conditions.
Bottom Chord Ties: these run the entire length of the building.
Adds a higher
level of rigidity to the truss system.
