What are Purlins?

Purlins are horizontal beams used in building construction. These beams are most commonly found in roof structures, working to support the roof. The Purlins themselves are further supported by rafters or walls, with the roof deck laid on top of the Purlins to complete the roof.

Are purlins necessary?

Purlins are an essential part of the construction process. This is because, without Purlin, the frame for the roof sheeting has nothing to rest on. There are different types of Purlins that can be categorized by their material and shape. They are used in both wall and floor support.

Purlin uses in steel construction

Purlins are the roof framing members that are placed parallel to the eave to support the roof decking and sheeting. 

C-shaped purlins are used to support walls and floors and, as the name implies, are curved into a C shape, and they create the shell of the building and can support the beams required for flooring also. C-shaped Purlins can also be found in door mounting, side and parapet rails, window trimming, and roof clipping. 

A C shape Purlin roll former is a type of channel roll forming machine used to produce C-shaped channels. The metal is fed continuously through the roll-forming machine (either galvanized or cold rolled steel strips), and is bent, punched, and cut to size according to the specifications fed into the machine. The main benefits of using such a machine are customized designs and easy, reliable operation. 

A Z Purlin is typically used at joints and overlaps in the construction process. These robust horizontal beams also help to create the structure of a building, sitting between the roofing sheets and the building to support the sheet and ensure it remains firmly in place. Z purlins are often found in agricultural buildings as they are lightweight and flexible, meaning they can be easily manipulated into different sizes. 

A Z-shape Purlin roll former can create different profiles of Z Purlins by adjusting the rollers. These machines can also customize designs and are operated with ease.
