Storage Structures Unveils Alpha Framing System for Self-Storage Buildings
Storage Structures is a national metal-building subcontractor for the self-storage industry

April 22, 2020: Storage Structures Inc., has introduced its new Alpha light-gauge, 10-by-10-foot framing system, which is comprised mainly of factory-formed and -assembled columns and beams. Alpha changes a project’s construction sequence so partition panels can be installed after the roof, which allows other trades to begin work up to two months sooner, according to a press release. The Alpha Framing System eliminates concrete stains on the panels and offers ongoing flexibility in unit mix or alternative building uses.

“In developing the Alpha Framing System, we have focused on solving the major problems of our industry including time of construction, availability of labor and staining on the final product. As such, our system reduces man hours in the field by utilizing factory-formed modular materials and a simplified design to install, while at the same time providing superior performance in wind-uplift, sheer and gravity loads. Finally, there is nothing better than turning over a building free of concrete stains on the partition panels.” Said by Chris Pearson, owner-operations of research and development.

The system “provides a cleaner, faster and stronger design as compared to traditional framing systems” the release stated. The Alpha farming system can be engineered, designed and sealed anywhere in the United States.
