Equipment Storage Buildings: Secure, Expandable, And Portable
When you invest in the proper equipment for your business, you need an equipment storage building that is strong enough to protect it.
Why SteelMaster for equipment storage?
From massive storage buildings to smaller sheds, SteelMaster Buildings offers a variety of equipment storage options that will adequately protect your items.
Clear Span Design
One of the greatest benefits of owning a SteelMaster equipment storage building is the limitless interior space. Our buildings are self-supporting and do not require the use of beams and trusses.
This leaves the owner of the building the option to use 100 percent of the space on the inside of the building which makes it much easier to store large equipment, boxes or even install your own storage shelves.
Commercial Grade Steel
Every SteelMaster equipment storage building is made with the best, commercial-grade steel in the industry. The quality steel combined with the strength of the self-supporting arch design makes our buildings tough enough to endure the wrath of Mother Nature. SteelMaster’s metal storage buildings have survived powerful tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards and earthquakes.
Storing equipment can be an expensive venture, but with a SteelMaster building, that does not have to be the case. Our DIY buildings are cost-effective and will also save you money over the years. These buildings are easy to maintain because our arches are built to last.
Easy DIY Assembly
You can also save time during the building process. Our buildings are prefabricated, which makes it much easier to assemble them quickly with the help of just a small crew. So if you have a tight deadline to meet, SteelMaster’s buildings are your best bet. Every steel panel is pre-punched and pre-drilled at our factory before it arrives on your doorstep.
Why not just get a cheap equipment storage solution?
If you want a structure that’s built to last for decades, a steel equipment storage building is your safest and best option.
Although a metal building kit may be pricier than a wood or fabric building up front, you’ll thank yourself for saving money on maintenance costs in the future.
We know the price of cheap fabric or wood buildings can sound very appealing! However, you will only end up paying more money in the long run due to the cost of maintenance.

What if I just need temporary storage?
SteelMaster’s metal Quonset huts are a great solution for your temporary storage needs for a couple of reasons:
- Portability: SteelMaster buildings offer a benefit that traditional wood or fabric buildings don’t—portability. If you need to move your building, you can simply take the building apart and reassemble it in another location. Be sure to tell your building specialist if portability is an important feature for you so they can review the details of your building and offer insight and tips.
- Easily Extendable: Need to expand your building as you purchase more equipment? Not a problem! Instead of having to purchase a new equipment storage building when you outgrow your existing one, you can purchase more arches, later on, to add to your structure for more space.
Which Quonset hut model is best for storage?
We have several models including the A-Model, S-Model, X-Model and the classic Q- Model all offer plenty of space to store equipment of any size.
However, SteelMaster’s S-Model and A-Model are the most popular for equipment storage buildings due to their straight sidewalls that allow pallet racking or shelving to be placed against the wall. Both models also provide overhead space for taller items or a lofted area.
The S-Model is our most requested warehouse solution. With straight sidewalls and a rounded roofline, it’s a “well-rounded” option. This model can easily accommodate larger widths and is ideal for bigger warehouses.
The A-Model looks the most like a traditional “straight wall” steel building. Its 4:12 roof pitch gives it a gable appearance. This model is most cost-effective at 40’ wide and under, so it is ideal for warehouses for smaller “boutique” businesses or businesses that desire multiple small warehouse buildings.

Our metal Quonset huts are versatile and can be open-ended, semi-enclosed with one endwall, or fully enclosed. You can building your own endwalls with local materials or purchase steel endwalls from SteelMaster.
We sell two types of doors: garage doors and service or “man” doors. Garage door frames are typically mounted in the center of the endwall. Service doors are typically offset on the endwall.
Turbine vents are easily installed in the roof line to allow for maximum airflow into your building. Airflow is created as outdoor air is pulled into the building, maintaining a constant circulation of air.
SteelMaster’s skylight panels allow natural sunlight to fill your building. Our skylights are designed with a flat bottom, v-shaped corrugation that matches the steel panels of your building.
