Architects quite frequently transfer the constructive tubular design of representative airport terminals, railway stations and stadium roofs to representative multi purpose halls. The individualistic designs of non-industrial hall buildings, e.g. prestigeous fairground halls, use visible steel roof constructions as main elements, thus fusing style and function in a purist, cost-effective way.
Wide, column-free open halls with spaces that are flexible to use demand powerful facade and roof constructions with large unsupported spans. In a representative building context, i.e. in modern fairgrounds, tubular roof and wall constructions are supposed to add a filigree high tech architectural aspect to the overall hall design.
MSH Sections for the individualistic design approach: With MSH Sections, harmonious structures may be achieved with only very few different outside diameters by skillfully designing with Vallourec's wide range of different wall thicknesses and grades on offer. Numerous MSH-advantages in construction and assembly add up with easy corrosion- and fire-protection and comprehensive technical support to form highly functional and aesthetically impressive hall solutions.
PREON® box for the most cost-effective industrial approach: With PREON® box, Vallourec offers a unique system for industrial hall building, based on a proprietary iterative software. Using this groundbreaking software, complete static calculations are achieved and altered with minimum efforts, while the system offers both constructive flexibility and economically ideal solutions for single- to multi-bay halls with column free spans of up to 100 m and more. PREON® box uses the proven MSH Sections as high quality material basis for its modular steel framework roof elements.
