At Searcy Building Systems, we provide more than just metal buildings — we provide the expertise to customize your building exactly to your application and budget. We have all the features, accessories, and know-how to deliver the perfect metal building for your needs. Browse through our comprehensive list of structural design features and metal building accessories to learn how you can add visual interest and enhanced functionality to your steel building.

There are several structural design features that can add some visual interest as well as functionality to your building. Overhangs, facades / mansards, framed openings, wainscoting and parapet walls are some of the most common ways to tailor your metal building to your needs. Ask your Searcy Building Systems consultant which of these would work best for your needs.

Structural design features


Wainscot —characterized by color change in the wall sheets at a certain elevation above the finished floor— is a great way to customize the look of your building. Wainscot is typically used for more decorative purposes. On buildings with taller walls, this color change helps to break up a large monotone area making it more visually appealing.


The most common structural feature, overhangs are used to create a more residential or customized look. They can be added to the eave sides (sidewalls), rake ends (endwalls) or around the total perimeter. They’re great for directing water out and away from the building or providing shade. Overhangs are typically 18” to 36” in depth, but can be up to 10’ out, and can also be designed with or without metal soffit panels to cover the underside.

Framed Openings

We can provide framed openings for large doors, storefront glass doors and windows, or specialty windows.

Parapet Walls

Parapet walls— which can be added to one or more walls—differ from facades and mansards in that they have no projection. They’re wall panels below the roof line that extend above the roof line to a given elevation. Typically, they are added at the high eave and both endwalls of a single-slope building to hide the roof slope.

Facades / Mansards

Facades or mansards are typically used for retail buildings, and provide a superb area for signage and also shelter entry points and loading areas from rain or sun. Mansards can project out up to 6’ and project up between 2’ and 6’ tall.

Walk doors

We offer insulated and non-insulated steel walk doors in 3’x7’ (3070 / single leaf), 4’x’7’ (4070 / single leaf), and 6’x7’ (6070 / double leaf). Each “knock down” door package requires assembly and includes weather strip, trim kit, leaf, frame, hinges and threshold.

Thermal windows

Our insulated windows are offered in both horizontal slide or single hung models. The thermal break frame and insulated glass helps to maintain consistent interior temperatures regardless of the outside temperature. This thermal window is self-flashing / self-framing for installation convenience, but can be coupled with a steel subframe for added strength. They typically come in sizes of 3’x3’. 4’x’3’ and 6’x’3’. Other sizes are available upon request.

Slimline Fixed Windows

Slimline fixed windows —which do not open— are typically used in steel office buildings for lighting and viewing of outside areas. They are self-framing and do not require sub-framing unless requested. Typical sizes are 2’x7’ (2070) and 2’x’6’ (2060).


Our skylights and wall lights are manufactured with 100% acrylic sheets and reinforced with long-strand fiberglass, and each panel is coated in a hardy gel.Designed to produce diffused natural light —rather than using harsh direct sunlight— these heavy duty, opaque light transmitting panels meet or exceed all industry standards.

Ridge vents

Our metal building ridge vents can be ordered as continuous or single units. Exterior parts are 26-gauge painted or Galvalume. Each vent is opened by a pull chain that extends approximately 12” below the roof and also comes with bird screens.


Louvers can be used to generate cross flow for larger buildings, or provide the only ventilation in smaller buildings. We offer fixed 3’x3’ and 4’x4’ or adjustable 3’x3’ and 4’x4’ Galvalume® louvers in polar white or mill finish, each with bird screen.

Gutter Systems

Gutters are an essential component for diverting rainwater and snow melt from your roof and directing it away from your concrete slab. We can design a gutter system best-suited for your building.

Door Canopies

Otherwise known as rake or eave extensions, canopies can be added to any wall, and can be designed as continuous roof canopies or below eave canopies.
Canopies can measure 2’ to 10’ out, and can be designed with or without soffit. They can support ground snow loads from 20 psf to 100 psf. And they can be wind rated up to 180 mph per IBC 2015. They have vertical rod attachment and telescoping channels, and come in most MBCI colors.
After-market canopies offer full shelter at walk doors and rollup doors. They’re a great source of shelter and shade for vehicles, farm equipment and are often used as a porch.

Exhaust Fans

Wall exhaust fans come in either 36” or 48” diameters. With up to 1½ horsepower motors. They feature heavy-gauge galvanized steel frame and have an extruded aluminum shutter with extruded aluminum blades that open and close when the fan is switched on.

Benefits of Steel Structures

Higher Strength

Steel has a high strength to weight ratio, so it has a high strength per unit mass. This makes every piece of steel lightweight.


Steel has the ability to bear loads for a long amount of time when compared to other metals.


Steel is a sustainable construction material used on many different building types.

When it comes to steel building systems, there are countless short- and long-term benefits of steel structures. Steel structures provide the ideal solution for many types of buildings, which includes agricultural, industrial, manufacturing, self-storage and retail buildings. Whether you need a new retail shop, manufacturing building or even a church, we will work closely with you to accomplish your steel building structure goals. With so many benefits of steel structures, and the rapid advancement of steel structures, using this metal in various building types has become a common and mainstream practice.

Optional Metal Building Wall Panels

Architectural (A-panel)

Architectural (A-panel) panels can be used for metal building wall applications. The inverted ribs of the PBA panel provide additional space for heavier insulation thicknesses and allows for a more inconspicuous location for the exposed fasteners than the PBR panel.

Specialty Panels

Searcy Building Systems not only offers optional metal roof and wall panels, but we also offer a wide variety of specialty panels. Please ask your building consultant if you are interested in any of the following panel types:
