No. We provide you with a complete kit shipped to your install site, very clear documentation and install manual with pictures for your installer or subcontractor to use on install. We are the ONLY panelized steel horse barn that is installed with NO welding required onsite. Our install process is very easy and we have proven that it works well for our clients!
How do your barns compare to other metal barns in the marketplace, what are some of the differences?
There are a number of things that set us apart as far superior in the market place with regards to design and strength. I will mention the four BIG ones.
1. Wall Base Channel which is a 3″ Wide X 2″ tall 12 Gauge vs. 2″X2″ 14 gauge (higher the number the thinner the material) channel which most manufactureers use, this is the same as their door frame.
2. Anchoring system whith anchors spaced at 4′ vs. our competiton at 8′ and 12′
3. Bolt together design which uses much stronger frame members and every panel securely fastened vs panels all floating inside a frame made of light gauge C channels.
4. Flexibility, our bolt together wall system means each 4′ panel is interchangeable and can easily be exchanged or taken out to repair or modify to fit your needs long term.
You will need a cordless drill gun with 7/16 hex socket bit and 1/4″ drill bit, 10′ ladder, 5,000 pound all terrain forklift (recommended, not required in most installs), measuring tape, hammer, ratchet/socket set, touch-up paint (included in kit), 4-6′ level and a plumb-line.
Our designs are engineered for 90 MPH winds as standard with options to upgrade up to 130 MPH rating.
Our standard snow load is rated for 30+ lb per sqare foot. For additional loads including solar, we can engineer the designs for 100+ lbs per square foot.
Currently from the time you place your $1,000 deposit till you get your kit shipped to your install site is 9 weeks. Depending on engineering, permitting and other requirements those lead times can extend an additional 4 to 26 weeks.
Place a $1,000 deposit and fill out design form with requests.
This secures your spot in the design queue in order to get on the manufacturing schedule. A designer will reach out to finalize your order details, confirm a estimated ship date and get the remainder of the 60% deposit. Once the kit is complete and has went through our rigorous QC process along with a shipment date and method confirmed, you will pay the remaining balance.
Yes you can if you have the proper equipment allowed by DOT. However, in most cases, customers choose to allow us to ship so that all that liability is on the shipper not on you!
Yes, with thousands of barn built over the last 50 years (Ulrich Horse Barn and Ring-O-Steel Barn brand) we sell a lot of parts to our customers. Whether you are repairing or modifying your barn call us for a parts quote. If you are needing parts for another brand unfortunately our design and assembly is so different that our assembly system would not work with other brands.
You will need to have a 5,000 lb forklift to unload and the proper forklift for the terrain you are unloading on.
