Why Butler Self Storage Solutions Stand Out in the Storage Industry

In the world of self-storage, where the safety and security of clients' valuables are paramount, Butler Manufacturing emerges as the leader, offering solutions that are not only reliable but also innovative. With over a century of experience, Butler has fine-tuned its offerings to meet the diverse needs of self-storage facility owners, providing a combination of durability, aesthetic appeal, quick construction times, and flexibility. Let’s explore why Butler is the preferred choice for many in the self-storage industry.

Unmatched Durability and Performance

At the heart of Butler's offerings is a commitment to quality and durability. The MR-24 roof system is a prime example. It's a standing seam metal roof that's designed to last, virtually eliminating roof leaks. This system has been installed on over 2 billion square feet of buildings since 1969, with a track record of over 40 years of in-place performance. It's also backed by a warranty of up to 25 years, but don't be surprised if it outlasts its warranty, offering significant savings on roof maintenance costs. This system alone can save up to 90% in roof maintenance costs compared to traditional roofing materials, making it an economically wise choice for self-storage owners.

Rapid Construction for Faster ROI

Time is money, especially in the construction industry. Butler understands this, offering self-storage solutions that are not only high in quality but also quick to assemble. This speed of construction is due in part to Butler’s single-source solution, which streamlines the design and manufacturing process, cutting down on time and expenses. A Butler building system can be erected up to 30% faster than conventional construction methods. This means self-storage owners can start renting out units sooner, accelerating their return on investment.

Aesthetic Flexibility and Customization

Butler doesn't believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. They know that the appearance of a self-storage facility can significantly impact its appeal to potential renters. Therefore, Butler offers a wide range of exterior wall finishes allowing for unique architectural expressions or compliance with local building codes. Owners can choose from 16 paint colors for panels and trim, ensuring their facility stands out or blends in, according to their vision.

Adaptable Designs for Future Growth

Butler’s self-storage systems are inherently flexible, and designed to accommodate future expansion or adaptation. With options for single-story, multi-story, climate-controlled, and even specialized storage such as RV, boat, and wine storage, Butler systems can grow with your business offerings. This adaptability extends to design features like canopies, facades, and overhangs, as well as internal configurations like corridor systems for wider buildings, maximizing land use and investment returns.

Superior Protection Against the Elements

Protection from the elements is a cornerstone of Butler’s design philosophy. Beyond the MR-24 roof system, Butler buildings are constructed with high-quality materials such as 18-gauge door jambs and headers, which are 2.5 times thicker than the industry standard. This attention to detail ensures that the interior of the storage units remains dry and secure, regardless of external weather conditions.

Innovative Interior Features

Inside Butler buildings, every detail is carefully considered to enhance the safety and security of stored items. Features like pre-punched columns and purlins for bolt-together connections simplify installation while ensuring stability and durability. The entire structure is zinc-coated to prevent rust, extending the lifespan of the facility. Additionally, Galvalume® horizontal partition panels and the use of 29 gauge material for interior structures reflect Butler’s commitment to quality and durability.

Climate Control and Energy Efficiency

For items sensitive to temperature and humidity, Butler offers solutions that make climate control efficient and effective. Insulation options, including 4" or 6" wall insulation supplied by Butler, and recommendations for 3/4" vinyl-faced insulation for the roof, prevent condensation and ensure a stable internal environment. These features, along with the provision for easy HVAC integration, make Butler buildings suitable for a wide range of storage needs, from fine wines to sensitive electronics.
