How to choose a PVC hall size?

By Finest-Hall

When buying a PVC hall, you will wonder how big it should be. What is the possible width, length, height? How many doors should PVC hall have, and how big should they be? This article will try to find answers to these questions and draw attention to what must be kept in mind when purchasing PVC hall.
Availability of a base site
First of all, you need to look at the possible site to install a PVC hall. If the site exists, the site’s dimensions must be taken into account, but if the base site has not been completed yet, it is necessary to consider what goods are planned to be stored in the hall. The dimensions of the good held in the PVC hall largely determine the dimensions of the building.
Determining building height
In most cases, the building’s height is determined by whether trucks have to enter the hall. It is impossible to choose a building with a wall height of fewer than 5 meters if they have to. If trucks do not have to enter the building, the stored goods and forklifts’ height determines the wall height. In general, the wall/doorway’s height could be about 1 m higher than the goods stored and forklifts moving in the building. That prevents mechanical damage. If the goods/packages are small but can be stored on top of each other or shelves are used for storage, it is wise to make the building as high as possible. In this way, a larger cubic capacity is achieved without increasing the square meters of the building. Here, however, it is necessary to keep in mind the building’s maximum height established by the detailed plan.
Determining building width
Many different factors determine the width of a building. Once again, the most important thing is the goods stored in the building, the dimensions of the goods that were to be held in the PVC hall and in how many rows, and how big the aisles must be. The width is also determined by whether conventional or side lifts are used. If you do not have to choose between the PVC hall’s width and length, it is reasonable to take a narrow and long rather than a short and wide building at the same square meters. The larger the PVC hall’s width, the higher the price per square meter due to the massive structural bridge. However, if the building goes to length, it reduces the price per square meter. For example, the price per square meter of a 20×20 meter building is equivalent to the price per square meter of a 40×150 meter building.
What is stored in the building?
If bulk material (grain, pellets, sawdust, shavings, etc.) is stored in the building, the requirements for storage of bulk material established by the Rescue Board are decisive. The same requirements apply to the storage of flammable goods (a reference to paragraph). In this case, the building’s optimal width versus length must be found to use each square meter of the building efficiently. Sometimes it is essential to divide the building into sections and separate them with a fire barrier. That allows flammable material to be stored in a larger area in larger quantities. Simultaneously, all kinds of sections, firewalls, and firewalls significantly increase the building’s price per square meter. Suppose you have a detailed plan or design provision from the parish, then by contacting our specialists, you will receive recommendations for the dimensions due to the specifics of the building, goods, and lifts and possible restrictions due to the location.
