Britespan now offers a complete product line, engineering and manufacturing a wide lineup of building profiles, as well as a webbed truss building solution and an I-beam building solution.
The Rigid Beam series is an I-beam style truss building that is customizable and allows Britespan to build structures up to 300 feet wide, totally free-span. The new series also allows Britespan to engineer a number of custom elements, including sidewall heights up to 40 feet and eave heights up to 80 feet, custom eave sizes, and wider end and side entrances.
