Structural System

Butler Manufacturing’s Landmark 2000 Structural Systems Get a Boost with PurlinXT Technology


By using PurlinXT technology, Butler has created a pre-engineered framing system that can extend up to 60 feet, which is easily the longest bay size available in the industry. The vast, open area, allows for building owners to maximize the functionality of their space. The Landmark 2000 structural system uses Truss PurlinXT structural members on top of solid-web primary frames, and rod bracing to create a long-bay framing system. The businesses that will benefit from the massive size of this structural system are ones that benefit from or absolutely require open areas with a lot of floor space.

The Strengths of the MR-24 Roof System from Butler Manufacturing


A building's roof is like a suit of armor. Taking over 90% of the yearly wear and tear, the roof safeguards your building's valuable internals: products, equipment, tooling and personnel. It endures regular onslaughts from rain and snow, heat and cold. Like armor, roofs, too, can become damaged. They can suffer blows that threaten their integrity. And, like armor, when a roof failure occurs, the cost can be catastrophic. In light of this, investing in a rock-solid, proven roofing system – like Butler's MR-24 system – is an investment in your building's livelihood.
