Weathering the Storm: Part 2
After Hurricanes Katrina and Rita ravaged the southern U.S. coastal states, post-frame buildings stood tall amidst the rubble. That’s no surprise to those who engineer and build post-frame structures. When built correctly, their unique design and construction performs exceptionally well under tremendous weather extremes. Morton buildings are highly engineered and structurally sound for many reasons:
- Our exclusive concrete Morton Foundation System removes wood from the ground and replaces it with specially designed components and superior materials
- Our buildings transfer load through the posts, typically embedded in the ground or surface-mounted to concrete, allowing the structure to perform well under seismic loading conditions
- Our flexibility in design, for example, truss to column attachment options, can be customized to your load requirements and climate conditions
