Z Purlins

Over our many years of manufacturing high quality roofing materials, we have always prided ourselves on delivering high quality at a low cost with minimal delays so you can be confident in your purchase. We achieve this by providing all our customers with a complete roofing system at a modest price. To aid this, Z Purlins can be a vital asset to keep up with customer demands and provide adequate protection.

What are Z purlins?

Here’s a quick summary: Z Purlins are versatile and adaptable galvanised steel beams, which can be safely and conveniently attached to the roof and wall cladding sheets of most buildings. Z purlins are great at providing a sturdy and complete structural solution, which is more than capable of coping with the heavy demands of roofing and side cladding. Supporting roof sheets or vertical wall cladding, Z Purlins represent outstanding value and versatility for many purposes.

Z Purlins are built from cold-formed or rolled sheets to supporting roofs. The flexible shape allows many different designs. Our purlins are crisp and clean in design and do not allow the scope of inaccurate lengths.

Strong and lightweight, our Z-Purlins span upwards of 25 feet depending on the roof load and how spaced out the Z-Purlins are. Additionally, Z-Purlins can be nested together as a splice in roof construction. This means that the final roof support system appears to be one unbroken purlin, providing efficiency and durability. Offering robustness and flexibility, Z Purlins are a traditional yet effective system of sheet support that are easier to install and handle than traditional timber.

The ‘Z-shape’ of the purlins helps to overlap joints with greater strength and sturdiness than ‘CPurlins’. Well suited to building projects of various shapes and sizes, Z-Purlins are particularly effective in larger building projects. Z-Purlins use 40% of the steel and are 25% of the cost, resulting in significant time and space savings.
