Arch Buildings Roof Structure For Rolloffs??

Posted By Kent Kirkley

I am considering an 'Arch building" type of roof structure for a 14x16 rolloff observatory.This has many advantages including clear span, relatively light weight, moderate cost and able to withstand severe weather. These are prefabricated corrugated steel arch sections that are bolted together. You can see what they look like by doing a google for "Arch Building". The lower profile "R" type roof could be mounted on casters and rolled off just like regular stick and truss roofs.
Anyone have any experience with these arch roofs? Any comments?

I posted a new ad this afternoon around 4:00 pm.
It's now 9:30 pm and it shows "Not Confirmed".
Why?
Is there a problem?
The ads I post usually show up rather quickly.

Well OK
I and most people would assume it would be located at the bottom of the page.....
but no, it was at the top. We read left to right, top to bottom.
Why would I look at the top?
