What kind of metal is there? By weight, judging by the price, it weighs 4 tons

What kind of metal is there? By weight, judging by the price, it weighs 4 tons

Metal is accepted at 6-8 rubles per ton. The weight of the garage is more than 3 tons, it is assembled from different pieces, mainly 3-4 mm, there is a corrugation, a channel frame.

The garage has been sold for scrap metal. By weight - 3684 kg. For it we received 27 thousand and a few kopecks, of which roughly 5 thousand was the cost of loading and delivering it to the metal receiving base + washing a successful deal. Spent 3.5 hours of time. Total net profit is 22 instead of 13-15 planned + good mood. Thanks to all. The topic can be closed.

On average, the weight of a 3x6 metal garage varies between 3-4.5 tons. You may only need information about how much a garage weighs in 2 cases:

- You haven't yet decided which metal garage you're going to buy.

In this case, the weight of the metal garage will affect the cost of delivery and the load that the concrete base will receive. If you purchase a garage box from a specific manufacturer, then all the necessary information can be found in the delivery note.

- You have decided to move your old metal garage to a new “place of residence”.

In this case, it is quite difficult to know the exact weight of a 3x6 metal garage, since many people cook it themselves. In this case, various material options are used - from various configurations of corners to metal thickness varying around the entire perimeter.

If you are faced with the 2nd situation, then using our method you will quickly calculate the approximate weight and be able to choose the right manipulator.

## Approximate calculation of how much a 6 by 3 meter metal garage weighs

**Initial data** : length 6 meters, width 3 meters and height 2 meters. The basis of the design is an all-welded type of garage, in which a layer of sheet steel with a thickness of about 4 mm (the most common option) acts as a cladding. These are the minimum standard garage sizes for any modification of a passenger car.

Important:How much an iron garage weighs will mainly depend on the thickness of the sheet covering and the total surface area. The basis of the structure for passenger cars weighs at least 2 tons. The roof covering itself will be 1-1.5 tones. The remaining weight is provided by racks and shelves that are installed inside.

Briefly, for the calculation, do the following: Calculate the volume of the garage box by multiplying the length, thickness and height along the axial dimensions. Then, knowing the volume values of the roof and wall, you multiply the resulting figures by the specific gravity of the sheet metal. As a result, we get a weight that will differ by 5-10 kg from the real one.

## Usual sizes

The standard garage area implies the construction of garage cooperatives. Where the length does not exceed 6 m, width - 3 m and height 2.2 m. Only cars can be placed in such structures. There is no space for storing spare parts and tools. Enterprising motorists solve the problem by using hanging shelves.

The parameters of the structure will directly depend on the dimensions of the machine and the width of the racks. Armed with a tape measure, we measure the car or look at the technical parameters in the documents.

**Algorithm for calculating a garage for 1 car:**

- Width: add 0.5 m to the car’s parameters for free opening of the doors.
- Length: increase by 1.5 meters for free swinging of the gate and access to the trunk.
- The height is calculated based on the height of the car owner. If the car is taller than the owner, we make an increase based on the dimensions of the car by 0.5 m.

For example: the dimensions of a jeep are 4.8 x 2.5 x 1.75 m, length, width and height, respectively. We add the indicators and get the perimeter of the garage 6.3 x 3.5 m. Height 2.5 meters.

The given data is calculated only for 1 machine, excluding racks and shelves. To accommodate minimal spare parts, such as replacement tires, you need to add another 1 meter to the width. If you need additional arrangement of the garage, we add the size of the furniture, taking into account free access to open the doors. Self-repair of a machine requires the presence of an inspection hole. Its length must be greater than the car itself for free entry and exit. Therefore, when planning the design, it is necessary to take this factor into account and increase the area of the garage.

## A direct example of calculating the weight of a metal garage

We count all the elements one by one:

- Area of side walls: 2*6*2 pieces = 24 sq.m.
- Area of a 2-pitched roof, taking into account the small overhang of the canopies: 2 * 1.9 * 6.2 * 2 sides = 47 sq.m.
- We calculate the area of the rear and end walls together with the gates: 3*2*2 pieces = 12 sq.m.
- The approximate area of 2 triangular pediments is 4-4.5 sq.m.
- If there is a metal floor, we also calculate its area: 3*6 = 18 sq.m.
- We add up all the obtained values: 24+47+12+4+18 = 105 sq.m.

## Metal garage manufacturing and assembly technology

Let's start not with manufacturing, but with preparing the base. In this article we will not consider a garage under which a basement is built or an inspection hole is made in the floor. We are interested in the garage itself, which is made of metal structures, so we use a slab foundation as the base. Here is the technology for filling it:

- according to the size, dig
**a pit**with a depth of 30 cm; - a layer of sand and crushed stone
**is poured**into it -
**formwork**around the perimeter from boards 100 mm wide; - lay
**a grid**of steel reinforcement with a diameter of 10-12 mm on the stands, the cell dimensions are 20x20 cm; **pour**concrete solution to the edges of the formwork;- the latter
**is dismantled**after 7 days; - The foundation can be loaded
**after 28 days**.

### Frame assembly

While the foundation dries, they begin to make the frame of the garage. It is assembled either from a steel angle, or from a profile pipe, or from galvanized profiles, on which drywall is mounted. The last option is used only if corrugated sheeting is used as cladding. We will talk about the traditional frame structure made from a corner, for which you will have to purchase a 40x40 or 50x50 mm profile, which will be installed on the main components: lower and upper frames, corner posts. A 32x32 mm corner will be needed to construct the roof and install intermediate posts.

## Why do you need to know the mass of a metal garage?

Information about the weight of a metal garage is required by owners in the following cases:

- There was a need to move the building to a new location.

To lift and transport it, you need to know the initial weight in order to correctly order loading equipment, the rental price of which varies greatly depending on the power. The situation is complicated by the fact that most of the buildings, dismantled or welded, are made by the owners themselves, and no preliminary calculation of their mass was made. In this case, you need to calculate the weight yourself.

- Construction is just planned; or buy a ready-made design.

You need to know the weight to order a vehicle with adequate power to deliver the cargo to the place. The foundation for a building is also poured to accommodate a certain load, and if done incorrectly, the reliability of the structure will be significantly reduced. Calculating the mass in such cases is not particularly difficult, since:

- companies that produce metal garages to order indicate the weight in the technical documentation for the project, which every buyer can access;
- In the case of self-assembly, determining the weight of building materials when purchasing is much easier than calculating the weight of a ready-made building.

**Note! The standard size is considered to be a structure 3 meters wide and 6 meters long. The height of the walls is 2 meters, the total height of the structure is 2.6 meters. **

By the way, about the material. Firstly, after the construction of a dacha or country house, a thrifty owner always has metal profile waste that he does not throw away. You can use them too. If the garage will always be under supervision, then for its construction it is recommended to use cladding materials with low strength characteristics. And this will affect the reduction in construction costs. For example, instead of sheet iron with a thickness of 2-3 mm, use corrugated sheeting with a thickness of 0.7-1 mm.

In addition, the owner, together with invited craftsmen, can determine the dimensions of the structure, the type of its roof, the type of thermal insulation material and internal cladding. And all this should be adjusted to the budget allocated for the construction of a metal garage.

## How to calculate weight yourself

Calculation of the final mass of a metal garage, the dimensions of which are 3x6 meters, is carried out according to the following algorithm:

- Calculate the area of the side walls. The area of one wall is 2*6=12 m2. We multiply the resulting value by 2 and get the total area of both walls - 24 m 2.
- Calculate the roof area. We take into account that the roof is gable, and its dimensions slightly exceed the dimensions of the building due to the canopies. The area of one slope is: 2 meters * 1.9 meters * 6.2 meters = 23.56 m 2. The area of two slopes is 47.12 m2.
- The area of the front wall, including the gate, and the rear wall is 12 m2.
- The gables that form the roof of the building have an area of 4 m2.
- Some garages have metal floors. In this case, its area is 18 m2.
- Now we know all the data, all that remains is to add them together: 4 + 12 + 18 + 24 + 47 = 105 m2.

Now it is necessary to determine the thickness of the metal with which the frame was lined. Most structures are made from sheets of metal, the thickness of which is 4 millimeters. One square meter of such cladding weighs 31.4 kilograms. Now we can calculate the total weight of the material used to cover the frame: 31.5 x 105 = 3,292 kilograms.

Today we will tell you in this article about such a very necessary structure as a metal garage. Let's look at the selection criteria, how to install and assemble it, and how the garage is sheathed and insulated. Once you understand the information received, you will understand what, how and why the craftsmen who were entrusted with the construction of this structure are doing and will be “in the know” when discussing the details.

## Calculator for calculations

The weight of a metal garage of any size can be easily calculated using a special calculator. To do this, the user is required to enter the dimensions necessary for the calculation, and the program itself will calculate the final figures and display the result. Some calculators allow you to calculate not only the weight of a metal garage, but also show its approximate cost.

## Metal garage: general information

**A metal garage** is a multifunctional building:

- for storing the vehicle and related equipment;
- as a place for minor vehicle repairs and adjustments.

The first function is successfully performed **by garages made of metal structures** :

- shelter awnings (shell and pencil case);
- garage boxes are 3-wall structures assembled into a linear complex;
- prefabricated garages on a frame;
- prefabricated garages (from ready-made structures);
- all-welded option.

All of them belong to the category of **metal garages** , although they are assembled from:

- sheet steel;
- galvanized metal;
- painted corrugated sheeting (the most expensive option);
- sandwich panels - wall and roof (outer metal layer, thermal insulation, adhesive layer made of polyurethane foam).

Small-sized lightweight shelters **are not suitable** for car maintenance work, but they are often used for warehouses, outbuildings, cabins and even chicken coops.

### Advantages and disadvantages

Why do **metal garages,** despite the general variety of offers, keep up with the competition? This is facilitated by a number of **advantages** :

- relatively light weight;
- possibility of transportation;
- strength and durability of the material;
- relatively low cost;
- no need for additional investments (for interior and exterior decoration, foundation, floor, ceiling);
- speed of construction (assembly by 2 workers in 6 hours);
- undemanding in constant care;
- versatility in storage.

Impeccability is not the main characteristic **of a metal garage** . Its disadvantages:

- low thermal insulation rates;
- insufficient fire resistance;
- the probability of condensation occurring due to fluctuations in t◦;
- discomfort of the interior space in winter conditions (problems with starting the engine, opening door locks);
- the likelihood of hacking, dismantling of factory structures by attackers, and even removal of the entire structure using a truck crane.
