Description

The Frontier Garage Series features vertical sheet metal roofing panels and horizontal siding panels, requiring roof purlins but no side girts.

No side girts mean fewer frame components, so the Frontier design offers a lower cost alternative to the Summit building style.

Engineering certified to 30’ wide and up to 12’ sidewall height, assembly time is drastically reduced with VersaTube’s patented Slip-Fit frame connections.
