Introduction
The purpose of the Corle Building Systems Architectural Manual is to provide an overview of how to
design and specify a Corle Building. We pride ourselves on providing outstanding customer service and
are here to help with any questions you may have.
This manual serves as a general guideline to design a custom-engineered metal building by Corle, but in
no way defines the limitations of what you can create.
Also contained in this manual:
- Detailed instructions on how to specify and order a Corle Building
- General Specifications to assist with specifying a Corle Building
- General Corle Building details for most conditions
Please feel free to contact your Corle Building Systems District Manager when designing and specifying
your next metal building.

Customer Service Policies & Procedures
Corle Building Systems recognizes the “Common Industry Practices” as compiled by the Metal Building
Manufacturer’s Association (MBMA), as its standard, specific guidelines of the design, manufacture,
sale and erection of its components and building systems.
These guidelines can be found in your 2008 Metal Building Systems Manual and are intended to serve
as a specific checklist of policies and procedures to be implemented by parties involved in preparing
order or contract documents governing the sale and direction of the products of Corle Building Systems.
Wherever there is a conflict between the order or contact document and these practices, however, the
contract will prevail.

Basic Building Layout
Page 3 of this section shows a drawing of the basic Corle Building layout. It shows a number of ways to
configure a Corle Building and some visual depictions of the following basic definitions:
Wall Names
Sidewall - The building sidewall is the Eave Wall
Endwall - The building endwall is the Gable Wall
Steel Line - The lines that define the overall dimensions of a Corle Building
Frame Construction for Endwalls - this is explained in detail later in this manual.
Bay Spacing Conventions - Shows how bays are referenced for all walls and the building overall.
Building Order Form
Order using Corle’s web-based QuickQuoteTM. program. Contact a Corle Building Systems District
Sales Manager for complete details.
Building Information
Width - the width is the distance from the outside to outside of sidewall secondary framing.
Length - the building length is the distance from outside to outside of endwall secondary
framing (girt).
Eave Height - the distance from the finished floor to the top of the eave strut.
The eave strut is the secondary framing member at the intersection of the wall and
the eave of the roof.

Bay Spacing - The bay spacing is defined for two locations:
The first or last bay (end bays): The bay spacing is the distance from the outside of the wall secondary on
the perpendicular wall to the centerline of the first frame. See the basic building layout for bay spacing.
An interior bay: The bay spacing is from frame centerline to frame centerline. See the basic building
layout for bay spacing.
The “Building Bay Spacing” is always determined by the bay spacing for the front sidewall.
Interior Frame Type - The interior frames are the “main frames” of the building. They define the overall
shape of the building -- Double Slope, Single Slope, Lean-To, etc.
RF - Rigid Frame Building - This is a double slope building.
SS - Single Slope Building - The back side wall is the low eave.
LT - Lean-To - A lean-to attaches to another building and has a frame “missing” a column.
TB - Tapered Beam - This is a double slope building, similar to an RF, except that the roof
beam has a horizontal bottom chord.

Corle-Specific Information

RF- This is a double slope building with interior columns on the frame. This allows for a much wider
building when interior columns can be used to make a more economical frame. The blank is filled with the
number of interior columns (total columns, minus two).
This is an RF-1 Frame
SS- This is a single building with interior columns on the frame. This allows for a much wider
building when interior columns can be used to make a more economical frame. The blank is filled with the
number of interior columns (total columns, minus two).
This is an SS-1 Frame
Exterior Column Shape - The sidewall columns can be tapered or straight. Taped Columns are more
economical. Straight columns can have their depth specified, however, the shallower they are, the heavier
and more costly they will be -- i.e. a 24” deep column on a large building will likely be more cost effective
than a 12” deep column.

Bracing
Standard Bracing - Standard bracing uses wall panel shear, if that is adequate. If not, cable
bracing is used. Cable bracing may limit the openings available in that particular bay.
Wind Column - A wind column is a “flag poll”-like means of bracing a building.

Open walls indicate no panels are provided by Corle for those areas. The wall can be open for other
materials, such as masonry, glass, tilt-up panels, etc. The wall also may be “open to remain open” for
structures such as canopies of storage building with 3 walls covered with wall panels.
Bay Start and Bay End is the same as for Roof Extensions. Custom conditions can start or stop at
any location and must be entered on modifications.

refinishing or replacement, as elected by CORLE. CORLE reserves the right to reject those bids and to arrange for repair or refinishing
at its own expense. Should CORLE authorize the Customer to proceed under one of the bids, CORLE will pay the Customer its share
of the approved bid price.
The Customer may elect to obtain a cash settlement from CORLE in lieu of the remedies set forth above. Should the Customer elect to
receive a cash settlement, any replacement or refinishing of the defective portion of the field installation arrange by the Customer will
not be covered by this warranty. CORLE will pay the Customer the settlement amount agreed between CORLE upon receipt from the
Customer of a full and final written release of CORLE from any further liability for the defective portion of the field installation.
