Here are the numerous benefits of using the Tier II Classic for your new facility:

Quick Delivery

Your Butler Builder will receive the steel for your building just 8-10 weeks after placing an order that doesn’t require clarification.

Integrate with Butler Systems

Use Butler structural, roof, and wall systems for all building types.

The Tier II Classic can be assembled up to 30% faster than conventional construction.


Order your Classic building with skirt walls, below eave canopies at the end walls and sidewalls, and adjacent units.

Build Excellence

Exclusive, factory-punched roof and wall panels allow for speedy installation and ensure long-term building performance.

Insulated Metal Panels

Order your Tier ll Classic building with TextureWall and ThermaWall insulated metal panels.

Butler Express Mezz System

The Butler Express Mezz stand-alone mezzanine system is the fastest, easiest way to get a mezzanine. Whether you need light loads for office space or heavy loads for storage, the Express Mezz System meets your business needs. You can combine an Express Mezz with a new Butler building project or add one to an existing structure.

Explore the various Express Mezz features below:

Economical Design

Butler 3-plate perimeter beams and standard 11 ½” G30 Cee joists attach with bolted clips.

Loading Capacity Flexibility

Everything from light loads associated with office space to heavy loads used for storage.

Multiple Standard Module Sizes Available

Standard module sizes start at 8’ x 8’ and can go as large as 28’ x 28’ in 4-foot increments. Two standard heights are available: 9-feet or 10-feet “clear” from the underside of perimeter beams.

Integrated Perimeter Railing and Stair Solutions

Order complete railing and stair solutions at the same time.

Attractive Appearance

The Butler standard gray primer combined with our G30 galvanized finish on the Cee joists provides an attractive appearance that matches the main building products.

Easy Install

With no welded parts, all pre-engineered, bolted solutions minimize on-site labor for quick on-site assembly of all mezzanine parts. The railing system and stairs easily bolt into pre-punched holes in the perimeter beams.

New or Existing Buildings

Because this is a free-standing system, the Express Mezz works in existing structures as well as new.

MR-24® Conventional Roof Solution

The Butler MR-24® is the industry’s first and finest standing-seam metal roof system with 50+ years of proven, in-place weathertight performance. And now conventional structures can benefit from its superior performance with the launch of the new Butler MR-24® Conventional Roof Solution. This new offering can be used for both new and re-roof projects by utilizing two self-drilling fasteners to attach to a structural B-deck.

It provides several benefits, including:

Two to Three Times the Service Life vs. TPO

The MR-24 Conventional Roof System features Galvalume® with an anticipated service life of 60 years*.

Energy Savings

A variety of rigid insulation boards**, some with embossed aluminum facing on both sides, are available and enable the MR-24 Conventional Roof System to deliver exceptional R-value.

Condensation Control

The vapor retarder substantially reduces the movement of water vapor within the roof system and helps to keep the insulation material joints dry.

Warranty Protection

The MR-24 Conventional Roof System is available with a 25-year warranty for panel finish protection and weather tightness.

Butler SunLite Strip® Daylighting System

This curbed daylighting system allows natural light into your building. Skylights increase employee productivity and enhance owner satisfaction. Best of all, daylighting saves you money, reducing the cost of electric lighting up to 70-percent!

The SunLite Strip® Daylighting System provides several other benefits, including:

Easy to Install

The curb arrives fully assembled, making installation easy with less labor.

High-Quality Design

The SunLite Strip is made from aluminum for ultimate corrosion resistance and longevity. The new design does not divert water through panel corrugation, nearly eliminating the potential for leaks.

Flexible Installation Options

The unit is installed AFTER the roof is in place so your builder can install when the time is right. It can also be installed in retrofit applications!

Superior Performance

The skylights provide high daylight illumination with visible light transmission up to 70% and are available in standard double-dome and triple-dome glazing.


Optional, below-dome safety screens are available to provide fall protection for workers on the rooftop. Burglar bars are also available.
