Pole Building Supplies offers a large variety of steel panels for Residential, Commercial and Agricultural applications in several gauges and profiles.

Nearly all panels Pole Building Supplies offers come with a 45-year warranty.*

It’s called MS Colorfast45® warranty which fights to prevent fading, decade after decade! The ultimate lifespan of steel roof and wall panels depends on the quality of the coating system that protects it. Inferior coatings will not protect the steel substrate from harsh elements and will be susceptible to corrosion, chalking and color fading. MS Colorfast45® is a multi-layer coating system proven to be superior in every respect layer by layer. They supply superior resin and superior performance, standing the test of time.
