Weathering the Storm: Part 2

May 25, 2017

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
