Galvanized Zee Purlins

galvanized-zee-purlins

What are Z Purlins?

Z purlins resemble the shape of a letter "Z" and are also referred to as Zee or Zed purlins. They are roof framing members that span parallel to the building eave and support the roof decking or sheeting. The metal purlins are in turn supported by rafters or walls.

Zed purlins are secondary steel framing members used for both roof and wall. Zee Purlins are commonly chosen for the ability to end lap.

Z Purlins For Metal Buildings

Designed to reduce the distance the rafters have to span, metal purlins support the loads from the roof deck and help to prevent the roof from sagging. Western States Metal Roofing offers two types of galvanized purlins:

  • C Purlin - Cee or C purlins are shaped like a squared-off letter C. They are often used for structural support in walls and as floor joists in addition to roofs.
  • Z Purlin - The zee or Z purlin is shaped like a letter Z. Its shape allows the purlin to overlap with others at the joints. This gives zed purlins the potential to be much stronger than C purlins. Z Purlins are mainly used in walls or for large roofing projects.

Advantages of Z Purlins

  • Ability to span length
  • Purlin construction is easier to assemble and handle
  • Assured dimensions and straightness
  • High durability, versatility and uniform quality
  • Low transportation cost due to decreased weight
