Steel Purlins By Greenville Steel: Your Texas Structural Steel Supplier
Made from cold-formed, high tensile strength steel, our purlins are the perfect solution to your steel structure roofing needs. Purlins are horizontal support members that can support the roof of your steel structure and other exterior features like awnings and rain gutters. If you're planning a steel building and you're in need of roof purlins, turn to Greenville Steel! Our enormous selection, flexible delivery and competitive prices makes us one of the leading structural steel suppliers in the region. Whatever your building project requires, we can get it to you.
C-Shaped Steel Purlin
C-purlins are basic, lightweight, strong and easy to install. They're suitable for many roofing applications as well as in walls and floor joists. Their simple shape makes them quite versatile, and they can be used in many applications and locations on your structure. However, their strength and span is somewhat limited.
Z-Shaped Steel Purlin
Z-purlins, on the other hand, are Z-shaped which makes them larger and somewhat more awkward and difficult to install. However, their advantage is that they can overlap and lock together, increasing their strength and their ability to cover longer spans.
As a rule, when it comes to structural steel roofs, larger structures with greater spans will need Z-purlins, while smaller roofs might be fine with C-purlins. If you're not sure, give us a call to speak with one of our structural steel construction experts about your project needs.
