Steel Building Accessories
Cover trim is a wide trim used to cover the structural door jambs and headers on large openings. The reason we are highlighting this trim piece is because most of our competitors leave this trim out. Cover trim is standard on all of our buildings, not as a costly option! Cover trim doesn't affect the structure of the building but it does finish off your framed openings. Without this trim, the red structural door jamb will be visible outside of the building which just doesn't look finished properly. MBMI Metal Buildings will not cut corners. This trim is manufactured in 26ga steel and available in over 20 colors. You can have the cover trim match your wall color or trim color. The base metal is galvalume, which is a zinc-aluminum coating that provides excellent corrosion resistance. This trim comes with a standard 40 year paint warranty.
Gutters and downspouts
Gutters and downspout are available on all our buildings. Although they are not needed, gutters and downspouts do a great job of directing rain water exactly where you want it to go. You can also eliminate that water fall effect off the roof during heavy rain storms. This trim is manufactured in 26ga steel and available in over 20 colors. You can have the gutters and downspouts match your wall color or trim color. The base metal is galvalume, which is a zinc-aluminum coating that provides excellent corrosion resistance. This trim comes with a standard 40 year paint warranty.
Walk doors are available 3' wide, 4' wide and 6' wide. Doors can be ordered as solid steel or with half glass. Our standard doors come pre-painted and manufactured of heavy duty commercial grade steel. This is not a residential Home Depot type door. Heavy gauge jambs, hinges and leaf material provide you with a solid door that will last for many years. Solid core insulation is standard as well. Many of our competitors will provide you with a hollow door without the insulation to save money. Walk doors are also available for high wind areas where extra heavy duty components are needed. MBMI also offers a complete line of hardware such as closers, dead bolts and panic hardware. All our service doors are fully insulated and come complete with hardware, framing & trim.
Sliding glass window
Sliding glass windows are available in a variety of sizes. Windows can be ordered as horizontal slide or vertical slide depending on your needs. Windows are great for adding natural light to a building while saving on lighting costs. All windows come standard with heavy duty framing and color matching flashing. As an option, double pane insulated glass is available.
Skylight and wall light
Skylights and wall lights are the most economical method to add natural light to your building which will keep your lighting cost down year round. These panels can be installed on the roof or on the walls of your building. Light panels are made of fiberglass and are manufactured to the panel profile so they fit perfectly and provide a weather tight seal. MBMI supplies a trim flashing kit with every skylight which many of our competitors leave out. This trim kit will make your skylight look, fit and seal better than without it. Each panel is 3' wide and come in various lengths to suit your needs. Insulated skylights are also available as an option. Insulated skylights are manufactured with an air barrier that greatly reduces the temperature transfer from outside to inside the steel building.

Fiberglass insulation integrates perfectly with our steel buildings. Insulation is available at a minimum of 2" and up to 12" thick depending on your application. MBMI only supplies the superior vinyl backed reinforced insulation because the non-enforced insulation is junk. Some building companies cut corners to save money and supply insulation that will rip and fall apart after time. Insulation is great at keeping the heat out in the summer and keeping the cold out in the winter. It is a good idea to at least insulate your roof whether you are heating/cooling your building or not is because the insulation acts as a vapor barrier. This vapor barrier insulation system will stop any condensation from forming under your roof. Vinyl backed insulation can be purchased with white or black vinyl depending on your needs. We even offer super high R-value insulation when your application calls for it. MBMI can supply R-30 insulation and up!
