Post & Frame Buildings are no longer being used strictly for barns, stables or industrial buildings, but are now bringing a higher level of sophistication and many advantages to commercial construction for all types of buildings including:
- Retail Stores
- Public Buildings
- Industrial Garages
- Airport Hangers
- Barns & Stables
Commercially engineered frame buildings feature large posts rather than typical wooden stud construction providing very large open spaces (up to 100 feet in span) that handle great weight loads.
Exterior options are varied, surprisingly beautiful, and often include specialty hardware for entry ways to bring a rustic or industrial look.
Solutions for Large Spaces
The ability to span large spaces frequently allows the use of oversized swinging and sliding doors for egress and Richards-Wilcox has the hardware to make those unique applications work.
Richards-Wilcox hinges support swinging doors that weigh 200 lbs. to 6,000 lbs. and up to 24’ in height. Standard strap hinges and decorative hinges come in either disc-bearing or ball-bearing styles depending on frequency of use. Finishes include sturdy powder coat, zinc plated, galvanized and stainless steel.
If building entryways require sliding doors, Richards-Wilcox can manage standard and extreme sizes of doors with many styles of track and truck. Our systems support doors from 400 lbs. or less up to 5,000 lbs. and sizes as small as 3’ in width and greater than 24’ wide.
