When shopping for your commercial structure, you may have been offered “Double leg” or “Ladder Leg" style for the leg part of your metal building. As a new metal building buyer you might wonder what the difference is other than price. Well it’s your lucky day, because In this blog we are going to talk about how the ladder leg is different from the double leg style and how it is the best option for commercial buildings 32’-60’ wide. Double leg consists of 2 pieces of square tubing welded together while the Ladder leg style is reinforced 1 ft wide with a 7 inch piece of tubing welded every 2 ft. Here at Carolina Carports we always want to make sure our clients' buildings are reinforced with the best materials and quality, so we offer the Ladder Leg style on ALL of our commercial structures as a standard. Other companies do not make this a priority and regularly manufacture double legs. We know that ladder legs are the stronger option and prioritizes your safety and peace of mind so why would we not make it the standard for our clients!

Here are some advantages as to why the Ladder Leg style is the go to for your commercial building (32’-60’ wide):

  • 🔩 Robust Load Distribution: The ladder leg design excels in distributing the weight of the structure evenly across its entire framework. This uniform distribution of loads minimizes stress concentration points, ensuring that the building can better withstand external forces and maintain its structural integrity over time.

  • 🏢 Structural Integrity: Our ladder leg design is not just about aesthetics; it's engineered for superior structural integrity. Every component of our ladder leg style is carefully designed to work in harmony, creating a cohesive framework that withstands the test of time. This style reinforces the overall structural integrity of your metal building.

  • 🌬️ Wind and Weather Resilience: Carolina Carports' ladder leg design has been rigorously tested to withstand high winds, heavy snow loads, and other challenging weather conditions. The design's inherent strength significantly reduces the risk of damage from the elements.
