How Does Your Sprung Structure Compare
When you compare feature by feature, you’ll quickly see how your Sprung structure outperforms other kinds of construction. It’s an innovative all-in-one solution that provides a custom building solution in a very short time.
Quality starts with intelligent design and choice of materials. And when you consider the rapid construction time, superior energy efficiency, long-term flexibility and lower overall costs, you’ll agree a Sprung structure is your obvious choice.
|Feature||Sprung Structure||Pre-Engineered Metal Building||Conventional Construction|
|Design Time||3-4 weeks||2-3 months||6-8 months|
|Construction Time||6 months||9-12 months||More than 12 months|
|Insulation||8 or 9 inch Johns Manville Insulation||6-inch R20 wall squeezed to R14
6-inch R20 roof squeezed to R11
|Lighting Levels||Reflection of the light off the white interior membrane reduces number of light fixtures required||Requires more lighting fixtures||Requires more lighting fixtures|
|Maintenance Schedule||Aluminum is virtually maintenance free; self-cleaning exterior architectural membrane; Sprung Shield "vandal-proof" Hard-Wall System to 8'6" level||Standing seam metal roof prone to large thermal movements creating leaking and requires continuous maintenance, especially at penetrations||Regular maintenance is required|
|Flexibility to Relocate||Yes||No||No|
|Airtight Building Envelope Efficiency||Air Permeability almost 0, results in excellent energy performance||Poor airtightness||Moderate airtightness|
|Energy Savings And Operating Costs||Up to 20% energy savings over pre-engineered metal buildings||Poor energy performance||Moderate energy performance|
|High Ceiling||Excellent clearspan views||Some limitations due to lower interior clear height||Some limitations due to lower interior clear height|
|Lifespan||Indefinite lifespan simply by replacing exterior membrane every 15-30 years depending on membrane selection||N/A||N/A|
