Customizing the Look and Functionality

Selecting Your Steel Building Accessories

One of the most enjoyable parts of designing your building with General Steel is choosing the building accessories that will make your project unique and functional. Working with your project coordinator, you will choose from an extensive selection of interior and exterior metal building components, including General Steel’s GenStone product line.

Can I Purchase Components Locally?

Absolutely! Our team is here to assist you in making the best selections for your project but it is up to you whether or not you purchase through General Steel or if you decide you would like to buy locally. Some components that can be purchased locally include doors and windows among other items, but GenStone is only offered through General Steel. Just make sure you let us know so that we can plan for the framed openings you will need.

The exterior of your General Steel building can be customized for both aesthetic purposes and functionality using a wide variety of accessories including:

  • Roll Up Doors
  • Sectional Overhead Doors
  • Bi-Fold Doors
  • Gutters and Downspouts

Other Customization Options

Although the two customization options below may appear to be cosmetic, both GenStone and the colors you choose for your steel building also have important functionality considerations. GenStone provides additional R-Value and each color has its own solar reflectance index (SRI), which determines how well your building’s exterior will reflect solar heat.
