A cantilevered canopy looks great, protects your building from weather, increases your work area and can be used to shield building entrances.
The above building features long cantilevered canopies on both sides of the building, allowing vehicles to be parked underneath and increasing the amount of floor space that can be used for storage and production.

Building a workshop in New Zealand
In Waimakariri, Fernside, New Zealand, there is not a steel-framed workshop built with steel fabricated in Kyneton, Victoria.
We sent over a steel package in a shipping container. When it arrived in New Zealand, the project was constructed by Tuatara Structures.
Using a four-crane lifting method, the construction of the shed went ahead excellently.

Why Hot-Dipped Galvanised Steel Is Better Than Painted Steel
All steel products are susceptible to rusting when they come into contact with oxygen.
Rust can be preventing by painting over the steel or by hot dip galvanising.
Hot Dipped Galvanising
This is the process of immersing steel into molten zinc to coat it. Zinc bonds with the steel to form an anti-rusting and anti-corrosive coating. Hot dipped galvanised steel is used for many different functions including roofing, automotive parts and heating and cooling conduction systems. The coating has a lifetime of over 50 years in most weather conditions and requires hardly any maintenance.
Hot dip galvanising is the process we use on all of our sheds at no cost to the client. It is the best and longest-lasting way to protect your steel.
This method is more aesthetically appealing,
Many people consider this method more aesthetically appealing than the silver triangular pattern that zinc coating creates.
Coating paints work well in protecting from high temperatures and insulating the steel from fire. However paint coating has a 12-15 year lifetime and the steel is exposed to rust if the paint is scratched, chipped or dented.
