There are various factors to consider in temporary building construction. If you want to create extra warehouse space, you will need to deal with issues such as construction planning law, construction engineering and statics. Here, the geographical location of the building plays a large role. Depending on the climate, different regions worldwide are divided into snow load zones. Snow loads are calculated for each of these zones. The statics for a building can be determined on the basis of the snow load of the relevant region. The statics ensure that the roof is able to withstand local weather conditions.
Snow load buildings have particularly high load-bearing capacity. They are used in regions in which heavy snowfall is expected in winter. Herchenbach offers modular lightweight snow load buildings. We offer buildings in different standard sizes that can withstand snow loads of between 0.52 and 1.35 kN/m². Our snow load buildings are extremely versatile. Depending on the wall and roof cladding, they are suitable for bulk materials, for non-sensitive goods or for goods that must be stored within a particular temperature range. You can also use our buildings as logistics centres, handling buildings, for manufacturing and production, and much more.
Modular snow load buildings can be adapted in terms of size, fixtures and fittings for their intended purpose. We offer various wall and roof cladding options. Our Therm+ models are fully insulated. They protect sensitive goods from frost and reduce the amount of energy required to heat the buildings.
Our range of fixtures and fittings also includes a gutter that can be heated. If snow loads slide off the roof and stay in the gutter, this can lead to overloading of the gutter. The heating function thaws the snow and allows it to flow away unobstructed. For fully insulated snow load buildings, we recommend sealing the wall base and installing high-speed roller shutter doors that prevent cold getting into the building. These fixtures and fittings help make the building more energy-efficient.
Snow load buildings for temporary or permanent requirements
Snow load buildings are used in various industries. They are often required only for a defined period of time rather than for longer-term use. Our buildings are designed for permanent use in accordance with DIN EN 1991. We also offer them for rental however, so that customers can use them only for as long as they need them. At the end of the rental period, we dismantle the building. The rental option protects a company’s assets, while companies do not have to make a longer-term commitment when planning their operating spaces.
Herchenbach not only provides high-quality temporary snow load buildings, it also offers a comprehensive service package including professional consultation services for the customer, from determining requirements to completion of the turnkey building.
