Rocket Steel Buildings® Canada VS The Competition

Rocket Steel Buildings® Canada Panel Overlap

Rocket Canada Steel Buildings require no caulking for waterproofing because the last 9" of panel is smooth allowing the panels to fit snugly together. This makes assembly simple and easy, thus saving 30-40% on construction time.

Competition's Panel Overlap

The last 9" of our competitor's panels are crimped preventing them from fitting snugly together. This makes it difficult to assemble because alignment with drift pins is required adding 30-40% more construction time. Caulking is also required for waterproofing taking up even more time because each overlap requires 4 rows of caulking to prevent leaks from occurring.

Rocket Steel Buildings® Canada Panel Crimping

Crimps are together and smaller in depth preventing buckling problems. This gives our panel 25% more strength.

Competition's Panel Crimping

Crimps are farther apart and larger in depth creating buckling problems and an overall weaker panel.
