Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings Certifications and Approvals

Curvco Steel Buildings are designed to meet the most rigorous seismic, snow and wind load conditions.  Extensive engineering calculations and computer simulations have been conducted on Curvco’s building components to verify their maximum load capacities.  The Factory then also laboratory tested its pre-engineered metal building steel panels until failure to document their performance.  This structural testing was performed by independent laboratories and has been accepted by the US Army Corps of Engineers as validation of the stated properties.  The approval and certification process for many countries requires periodic or annual recertifications in order to remain current to the latest amendments in the different building codes.

The list below includes some of the major domestic and international certifications and approvals obtained by our Factory.
