Simpson Steel Buildings has long-term experience in the self-storage industry and has the resources available to help guide you in designing the correct layout for your project. Our mini storage buildings are durable and economic, making it easy to meet any functional or budget requirements that may be in place.
Typically, mini storage buildings are designed around a 5’ x 5’ grid, with most buildings having a 5’ increment in width and a 10’ increment in length. Cross partitions are spaced 10’ apart. The lengthwise partitions that separate one side from the other is moveable on 5’ increments. By following these two guidelines, you can’t go wrong on building design.
Another common feature of self-storage is that many times your lot will have some slope. Our buildings can readily be adapted to your property by “stepping” the slab and roof line to fit your site. Usually, this is done on 12” increments. This saves you money on site preparation and allows for good drainage off the driveways.
10′ x 150′ Single Slope – 10′ or 15′ buildings work well to “surround” a piece of property. You can actually use narrow buildings to serve as your fence.
20′ x 150′ with End Units – The 20′ wide building is very popular when your project requires a large number of smaller units 5′ x 10′ or 10′ x 10′. This is particularly true when your customers are apartment dwellers or college students.
30′ x 150′ with 6 End Units – The 30′ wide building is by far our most popular size. You can offer a wide variety of sizes with the 30′ width (5′ x 10′, 10′ x 10′, 10′ x 15′, 10′ x 20′). You can even offer a 10′ by 30′ unit by removing a partition. The 30′ width is a perfect size to build for the first building on a new site. You can use it to determine the size of the units customers desire.
