Prepping for Natural Disaster with a Sturdy Building
For those of us in the Southeast U.S., we watch the news this time of year in anticipation of how our lives will be affected during hurricane season. Hurricanes are forces of nature that can devastate a community, let alone a business. Whether a Category 5 or a strong tropical storm, hurricanes are usually bad news for a business’ facility. In September of 2019, many Americans had their eye on Hurricane Dorian, the latest storm to make its way through the Atlantic. Gaining the attention of millions and causing damage throughout its path, Hurricane Dorian is not the first nor the last hurricane we have to prepare for. When it comes to a business' structure, how can we prep for a hurricane? According to our professionals, a 100 x 300 steel building is the option that is most likely to stand through a storm.
Hurricane Prep for Businesses
First Things First, Hurricane Safety
Before we get into the best structure option regarding weather resistance, let’s go over a few basics of hurricane safety. It should go without saying that no building is weather-proof; weather-resistant buildings have a higher threshold of tolerance, but they are not going to withstand hurricane force winds 100% of the time. Even the strongest buildings are susceptible to hurricane damage, which is among the strongest forces on the planet. Always make safety a priority – the safety of yourself, your loved ones and your employees. Evacuate when advised and take other precautions such as placing all outdoor objects inside, boarding up windows and gathering supplies (water, food, electricity and gasoline).
Investing in the Right Building
Even if you don’t live in the Southeast U.S., you never know when Mother Nature will strike. It’s an unfortunate and devastating reality to deal with, but we fortunately have a solution for you. Steel buildings are skillfully engineered and designed to be as structurally sound as possible, even against high force winds. Steel buildings are designed and assembled to handle winds up to 170 mph, which is equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane. Of course, damage is unavoidable when winds are that strong, but a 100 x 300 steel building is the best option to withstand inclement weather.
