PURLINS & GUARD RAILS
Purlin is a horizontal beam or bar used for structural support in structures, most often below the roof. Purlins are supported either by the building’s rafters or its walls. Steel purlins are a substitute for conventional wood purlins. They are lightweight, stable in dimension, accurate and simple.
C purlins, as the name implies, are formed as in the C alphabet, which is primarily used to support walls and floors. C section purlins or cee section purlins are built to shape a building shell structure’s walls and floor joists, making them also suitable for supporting the beams required for flooring.
Z purlin is stronger than C purlin and is mostly used together at joints and overlaps. Z purlins or zed purlins are horizontal beams that are built to shape a building shell structure’s roof and wall joists. They sit between the roofing sheets and the building, acting as sheet support to ensure that it is firmly attached and secure in place. Due to its relatively high flexibility and lightweight properties, Z purlins are most commonly used in agricultural and industrial buildings which make them easily adapted for use in a variety of different sizes.
Steel Guard Rail offers a single practical answer to the problems of protecting danger points on national highways and thereby reducing accident severity. Guard Rail redirects stray vehicles in a direction parallel to traffic flow and minimises the danger to following and adjacent traffic.
