CARY, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Cornerstone Building Brands’ latest metal building innovations continue to make waves in the industry, providing fast, affordable, durable and long-lasting metal building solutions for a wide variety of low-complexity metal building applications. With the introduction of the new HypersteelTM cold-formed buildings and SimplisteelTM rigid-frame buildings, customers are now able to get the strength of leading metal building design and manufacturing at the speed and price point they need.

“We don’t think customers should have to compromise when it comes to their building projects,” says Matt Ackley, President of Shelter Solutions at Cornerstone Building Brands. “By focusing on the place where product innovation meets customer needs and dreams, we have been able to build for what’s next by offering accessible, flexible solutions that are making a big impact in the industry.”

HypersteelTM cold-formed buildings are touted as having the fastest design and production timeline within Cornerstone Building Brands’ metal building solutions portfolio. Its counterpart, SimplisteelTM rigid-frame buildings, offers end users a metal building solution designed to bring passion projects to life while simplifying the metal building process. Together, these new offerings are opening doors for customers to gain greater access to high-quality metal buildings.


Crafted from cold-formed primary and secondary structural members, HypersteelTM cold-formed buildings embody qualities of lightness, durability, ease of assembly and immediate availability.

Unlike hot-rolled steel, which is heated and then shaped, cold-formed steel refers to a manufacturing process made by shaping steel sheets or strips without heat treatment during the production process, using various forming techniques such as bending, rolling and pressing.

As a result, these structures offer a simple, lightweight design that maximizes the strength of steel with impressive longevity. This makes them exceptionally well-suited for a variety of applications, including workshops, agricultural buildings and self-storage facilities, among many others. HypersteelTM cold-formed buildings’ intuitive design software makes it easy to create and visualize any project.

“HypersteelTM buildings have established a new benchmark in the industry when it comes to fusing efficiency, reliability and accessibility,” adds Ackley. “These qualities are extremely important for professionals who work with low-complexity buildings, which is why we made it our mission to support them with products that deliver.”

The nationwide production of HypersteelTM buildings is backed by a coast-to-coast supply network. Furthermore, each structure qualifies for robust weathertightness, finish and product warranties, providing an additional layer of assurance and peace of mind.

From personal hobby spaces to growing commercial enterprises, SimplisteelTM rigid-frame buildings are the metal building solution designed to bring passion projects to life. These buildings provide durable and flexible spaces that are not only easy to maintain, but also deliver the protection needed through reliable strength and weather resilience.

Beyond the structural benefits of SimplisteelTM rigid-frame buildings, streamlined design and ordering software helps to simplify the design, engineering and ordering stages, providing full transparency and comprehensive support throughout the project. This software provides clear installation details and accommodates a variety of foundation options for jobsite flexibility.

“This is the space for those who have outgrown the garage,” offers Ackley. “Think of a hobbyist or small business owner who suddenly feels the urge to take a big leap and chase a dream. When you need a strong, reliable space to grow your passion, Simplisteel™ buildings make it simple to build-out even the most ambitious projects — whatever they may be. There’s really no limit to what you can dream up for the interior of Simplisteel™ buildings.”
