What Sets Our Components Apart

At Pacific Building Systems, the components division provides components for pre-engineered metal buildings that are of the highest quality and stand out from the rest. Our components are designed to not only look great but also last for years to come.

To ensure this, we use a heavy coat of finishing enamel paint on the primary structure steel rather than just a thin coat of primer like many manufacturers do. This helps to prevent corrosion, rusting, and other wear and tear. We also offer a wide variety of paint color choices, including gray, green, red, black, and white so that you can customize your metal building to your desired aesthetic.

In addition to our paint colors, we also offer galvanized secondary framing such as purlins and girts, doors and window framing, and base and gable angles. This helps to increase the lifespan of the building and also provides better light reflection. All of our components are shop-welded and cut-to-length with all the necessary hardware in place, making it easier for you to replace or make an addition. We also offer long trims for added aesthetics and structural steel corner columns at the end frames for strong and stable metal buildings. All of these components make our pre-engineered metal buildings reliable, durable, and different.

Components Necessary to Construct
a Pre-Engineered Metal Building

We manufacture a variety of metal building materials and components that are necessary for steel buildings. Depending on the exact design of your building, which our expert team of designers can help you conceptualize, the components you need may vary. Rest assured, whatever your design is, we’ll have all the materials necessary for you to make it happen. Our product selection includes: 

  • Metal Roofing – A sturdy metal roof is the cherry on top for a metal building. Depending on where you plan to construct your building and for which purposes, the design of your roof may vary. For example, in an area that gets a lot of snow, you may want a slanted metal roof where snow will not compact on top of the building.
  • Metal Siding – Once you have your metal siding chosen, we can help you choose a color for it.
  • Custom and Standard Metal Panel Trim for all Industries – No matter if the purpose for your building is personal, commercial, agricultural, or something else; we have trim available!
  • Sheeting Accessories – Customizing your metal building with a one-stop-shop has never been easier. We have everything you need to construct your metal building.
  • Angles – Available in various styles to suit your building needs.
  • CEE, ZEE and Eave Strut Secondary – 8”, 10”, and 12” available stock sizes. Customer sizes made to fit per order. 12,14 and 16 stock gauges in inventory.
  • Insulation and accessories- A key element in keeping your metal building conditioned and more easily temperature controlled.
  • Nuts and Bolts – The “glue” that holds it all together!
  • Walk Doors and accessories – Having easy access to and from your building is an important element of the building process. We can help make sure you make the best choice!
