Primary Framing

Package Steel provides many options for our primary framing systems. We manufacture the Rigid Frames & Rigid Beam type frames locally at our facility in Sutton, MA. We design and detail our frames to meet your project needs.

Rigid Frame systems tend to be more economical with tapered sidewall columns, while Rigid Beam systems can offer more flexibility to interior finishes with straight sidewall columns. Both Rigid Frame and Rigid Beam are available in clear spans, multiple spans, and lean-to-style.

The standard finish on our Primary Framing is Grey Oxide. Hot Dip Galvanizing can be provided by request.
