Rocket Steel Buildings VS The Competition

Rocket Steel Buildings' Panel Overlap

No 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

The 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

Crimps are together and smaller in depth preventing buckling problems. This gives it 25% more strength.

Competition's Panel Crimping

Crimps are farther apart and larger in depth creating buckling problems and a weaker panel.
