WHAT ARE Z PURLINS?
Z purlins or zed purlins are horizontal beams that are designed to form the roof and wall joists of a building shell structure (also view our C section purlins page). They sit between the roofing sheets and the building, acting as a support for the sheet to ensure it is firmly attached and safely in place.
Our Z purlins are most commonly used in agricultural and industrial buildings due to their extremely versatile and lightweight properties which make them easily adapted for use in a variety of different sized buildings.
At Rhino Steel Cladding we stock Z purlins in a wide range of thickness which can be manufactured to your precise requirements up to 8m (26.25 feet) in length. We can also supply them un-drilled or with pre-drilled holes at 18mm diameter (small hole sizes available on request).
