Material We Use:

Red Iron



We Offer Competitive Rates on All Our Red Iron

The metal building craze is taking the commercial world by storm. Steel buildings, in particular, are slowly becoming the number-one alternative to traditional wooden structures.

Their weather-resilient, eco-friendly, and sustainable traits make steel buildings incredible long-term investments from a business perspective.

But steel isn’t the only type of metal building. Red iron steel buildings are picking up considerable steam, as well.

Both deliver significant benefits. But which one is right for your project?

Red Iron is a durable, strong and economical choice for consumers.

Furthermore, Red Iron is more structurally versatile and uses fewer legs/columns than galvanized steel, because the heavier metal alloy means that you need less of it to achieve the same structural integrity.

This also means you can do fancier and taller building designs than galvanized.

American Freedom Buildings is here to help you on small or large steel projects. We offer competitive rates on all of our steel that update frequently.

When purchasing a steel building, this is the way to go!

Bare Steel

Square tubing – Used as structural support components for metal buildings. We offer bare square tubing starting at 1/8” thick to 1/2” in a variety of sizes with lengths starting out at 20 feet.

Pipe – Structural pipe is available in a variety of sizes and can be used for a number of different structural uses. Common uses for structural pipe include for columns, bollards, sign poles and structural supports.

Wide Flange I Beams – Structural steel is most often used in the construction industry in the form of structural beams. They provide structural support to buildings, resistance to shear forces such as breaking, tearing apart or collapsing, and the flange resists bending of the section.

Flat Strap – Long and rectangular-shaped metal bars that are used in a wide range of structural and architectural applications.

Angle Iron – The most basic type of roll-formed steel. Angle Steel is ‘L’ shaped; the most common type of Steel Angles is at a 90-degree angle. The legs of the “L” can be equal or unequal in length.

Diamond Plate – A type of metal stock with a regular pattern of raised diamonds or lines on one side, with the reverse side being featureless. The added texture reduces the risk of slipping, making diamond plate a solution for stairs, catwalks, walkways and ramps in industrial settings.

Smooth Plate – Steel plates are thin, flat pieces of metal that are often used in structural and construction applications. Plates come in a variety of sizes and thicknesses.

Primed Steel

Purlins – Refers to roof framing members that span parallel to the building eave and provide a surface to which the roof panels can be attached. We offer a variety of purlins ranging from 3” and up and starting out at 20-foot lengths.

Girts – A horizontal structural member in a framed wall. Girts provide lateral support to the wall panel, primarily to resist wind loads. We offer a variety of girts ranging from 3” and up starting out at 20-foot lengths.

Square tubing – Used as structural support components for metal buildings. We offer primed square tubing in both 11g and 14g in a variety of sizes ranging from 1” and up starting out at 20-foot lengths.

Eave strut – A structural component located at the intersection of the roof and the exterior wall, so that it acts as both the first purlin and the last (highest) girt.

The shape of eave struts is a channel-like section, which allows the roofing to be attached to the top flange and siding attached to the bottom flange.

Base angle – A structural angle component secured to the perimeter of the foundation to support and close wall panels.
