Foltz Buildings, Inc. Features

Superior Paint
This unique paint coating combines proprietary resin technology with color-fast ceramic pigments for maximum color retention and resistance to fading.  This finish has undergone rigorous testing to ensure exceptional durability with long lasting aesthetics.

Superior Panels
For superior panels, Foltz uses G100 galvanizing – one of the heaviest in the industry, recognized for its superior corrosion resistance. Outstanding performance with a 9″ rib spacing provides over 80,000 P.S.I. tensile strength. Available in a wide variety of colors and trim packages.

Roof and wall panels are screwed on. Soffits and fascia are all steel, not aluminum

Foltz Frame
Foltz Buildings have been engineered to meet and exceed maximum snow and wind requirements of the upper midwest.

All trusses are 4′ on center.

 

Engineered Design

We use 2″ X 6″ Wall Girts: these provide a wider nailing surface and more wind resistance for a rigid, long-lasting wall system.  

We use 2″ X 8″ Treated Bottom Nailer: this is treated for maximum protection of steel from contact with the ground or cement floor or apron.  Made of Southern Yellow Pine and pressure treated for protection against decay.  The industry standard is Ponderosa Pine but we use Southern Yellow Pine because it is subjected to a higher quality treatment process.

Glu-laminated finger jointed columns: these are significantly stronger than field spliced nailed columns. Each column is continuous from the base (set in concrete) to the top chord of the truss.

Concrete Footings: these are a standard feature with Foltz Buildings.  Steel pins are installed in columns that are anchored in 180 lbs. of concrete per hole.

2″ X 6″ Diagonal Corner Bracings: this is fastened to columns and wall girts in each corner to further strengthen the entire structure.

Machine Stressed Rated Lumber: engineered, factory built trusses are designed to meet and exceed maximum snow and wind requirements of the upper midwest. All trusses are 4′ on center.

Machine Stressed Rated Lumber: Diagonal Roof Bracing is used for increased strength and rigidity, providing additional wind resistance to the superstructure.  Diagonal Roof Bracing is used for buildings over 40 feet in width.

Continuous Lateral Bracing: this has been engineered to provide critical truss to truss support in heavy snow or wind conditions. 

Bottom chord ties: these run the entire length of the building.  Adds a higher level of rigidity to the truss system.
