A-Series

Buildings designed with functionality in mind

The A-Series building line is designed for agriculture storage and light industrial use where an economical building solution is important. The 6′ and 8′ leg extension options allow for a variety of overhead door designs, increased storage capacity and the ability to position racking against a side wall. Deeper truss depth results in fewer trusses, therefore reducing labor, installation and shipping costs.

Norseman Structures fabric buildings are engineered for permanent use – they can also be moved and reassembled where they are needed most.

A-Series buildings are available worldwide and designed in accordance with structural requirements of the International Building Code and the National Building Code of Canada including CSA A660-10 and CSA367.

Steel Framework

Norseman’s A-Series buildings use the highest quality heavy gauge galvanized steel to provide our customers with a product unmatched in the industry. Known for its superior corrosion protection, A-Series steel goes through a three step process starting with a layer of 99.99% pure zinc being applied to the surface. This layer is then topped with a conversion coating followed by a clear organic topcoat that seals the surface with a smooth finish. This triple layer provides a much higher corrosion protection coating than the traditional single layer of zinc.
