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.
