Tech / Specs

At JWL, we strive to provide our customers the Best Value for their pole building investment. Consequently, JWL always uses high quality materials and rigid fasteners. All materials are fully inspected prior to delivery.

JWL uses #1 grade southern yellow pine headers and always constructs our buildings on the conservative side of engineering specifications, ensuring never to stretch the structural integrity of JWLs' Pole Buildings. As an important strengthening feature, JWL lags each header in all standard construction. Pole buildings with attic, storage, and/or living space trusses are thru- bolted for added protection. JWL utilizes support post 8 ft. on center as engineered for specific building heights and load requirements, typically .60 treated 4x6 and 6x6 solid posts, and .60 treated 3 ply 2x6 and 4 ply 2x8 glulaminated posts with 60 year warranties. Post Protectors or Perma Columns are also available. Treated splashboards are available in various dimensions to match your concrete floor thickness or other construction requirements…this means that any lumber coming in contact with the ground is fully treated. Purlins and girts are #1 and #2 SPF 2x4s per design, typically 24” on center.

Another special feature of JWL pole buildings are the footings, which are fully cured, precast concrete rounds reinforced with wire fiber and tested to 7,000psi minimum break point to ensure a solid, lasting foundation for your building.

Truss systems are engineered to exceed minimum load requirements. Generally, top and bottom truss chords are 2x6 minimum dimension and placed 2 ft. or 4 ft. on center, with exceptions made for special building designs or loads.
