Eave gutter – the rain capture and diversion channel applied to the eve strut (fascia) of a steel building to transfer rain water to the downspouts

Eave strut – the lowest applied purlin of the roof “framing” that acts as the sub-fascia, and provides support for the rain gutters

End wall post – the structural support columns within the end wall assembly that support the end wall rafter beam

End wall rafter beam – the rafter at the end of a steel building, normally part of the end wall assembly

Door jamb – the “framing” member of a wall that creates the perimeter picture frame for the installation of any type of door (known as a window jamb for installation of any type of window)

Downspout – the vertical member of the rain capture and diversion system that transfers the water in a controlled manner to the ground to provide protection from soil erosion

Gable trim – the outside cap that provides the finished transition from the wall to the roof of a steel building

Louver – a ventilation device that utilizes fixed or rotating “fins” to allow air to flow form the interior and exterior of a building; mounted into a wall assembly similarly to a window

Roof sheathing – also known as roofing panels, the finished “skin” of the roof assembly applied directly to the purlin of a steel building

Sidewall girt – the horizontal perimeter “framing” member applied to the vertical frame members that provides the support for the exterior paneling or skin of the building

Skylight – a “window” installed within the roof assembly to allow light (and optionally vent) to penetrate the interior of a building

Walk door – a door, also known as a pedestrian door, that swings in or out on hinges primarily used for entrance and exit of the building by people

Wall panel – the exterior “skin” of a wall assembly, typically mounted vertically, directly to the sidewall and end wall girts of a steel building

Window – the source of light and vent for any building; types including single-hung, double-hung, horizontal sliding, casement, awning, hopper and picture (fixed for light only); materials available include vinyl, aluminum, fiberglass, composite and wood
