Rocket Steel Buildings VS The Competition

Rocket Steel Buildings’ Panel Overlap

Rocket Steel Buildings' Panel OverlapNo caulking is required for waterproofing because the last 9″ of panel is smooth allowing the panels to fit snugly together. This makes the assembly less difficult and saves 30-40% on construction time.

Competition’s Panel Overlap

Competition's Panel OverlapThe last 9″ of our competitor’s panels is crimped preventing it from fitting snugly together. This makes it more difficult to assemble because more alignment with drift pins is required adding 30-40% more construction time. Caulking is also required for waterproofing taking up even more time because each overlap requires 4 rows of caulking to prevent leaks from occurring.

Rocket Steel Buildings’ Panel Crimping

Rocket Steel Buildings' Panel CrimpingCrimps are together and smaller in depth preventing buckling problems. This gives it 25% more strength.

Competition’s Panel Crimping

Competition's Panel CrimpingCrimps are farther apart and larger in depth creating buckling problems and a weaker panel.

Rocket Steel Buildings’ Endwall Panel

Rocket Steel Buildings' Endwall PanelOur steel building endwall panel is made up of AZ55, which is a compound of 55% aluminum, 43.5% zinc and 1.5% silicone, which make them more resistant to corrosion. They are backed directly by a 35-year rust-through perforation warranty on AZ55 Galvalume®. These steel building panels also have a Florida testing approval for high wind velocity. Florida approval number FL-5898.

Competition’s Endwall Panel
