|In the hot and arid Arizona climate, fires are always a risk and numerous buildings are burned down each year. Electrical malfunctions, explosive accidents, sabotage, smoking and forgotten candles are just a few causes of serious fires. It therefore comes as no surprise that steel structures have grown highly popular in Arizona. The content of a steel building, e.g. furniture, carpets and drapes, can naturally still catch fire, but a fire-proof steel structure can prevent the fire from spreading to nearby rooms and buildings. With a steel structure, it is much easier to keep a fire under control until the fire fighters arrive. A fire that breaks out in a garage where a lot of gasoline filled equipment is found will for instance be much easier to contain if the garage is a durable steel building instead of a building constructed from less fire-proof materials. A metal building can be the difference between an awful, but manageable fire, and a fire that spreads to the main residence and causes severe injury or even fatalities.|
A steel building is also an excellent way of getting peace of mind from malicious pets, such as bees and termites. In Arizona, you can for instance find the dreaded valley carpenter bee. These bees live in the valley and lower foothills of Arizona and nearby California and can cause severe destruction on wooden buildings. The valley carpenter bee will chew dead wood in order to create a nest inside wooden parts of a structure. To make it even worse, woodpeckers love to eat bees and will peck the wood apart to get to the nest. The combination of valley carpenter bees and hungry woodpeckers can naturally be disastrous, and opting for a steel building is therefore an excellent decision in Arizona and California.
