    Typically made from steel, C section purlins are structural beams providing horizontal support for walls and floor joists in steel buildings, such as agricultural, commercial, and industrial buildings. They are also commonly used for mezzanine flooring. Steel C section purlins are one of two common purlin profiles and can be identified by their ‘C’ shape, where the edges across the length of the beam curl inwards.

    Steel C-section purlins are a type of structural steel beam used in building construction. They consist of two parallel flanges connected by a “C” shaped web, which gives them their distinctive shape. C Section purlins are often used in place of wide flange beams or built-up beams when the structure requires a lighter and more economical solution.

    Yes, steel C-section purlins are cost-effective. They are made of durable steel so that they can last for many years with minimal maintenance. Additionally, they require less material than traditional beams, making them more economical.

    Steel C-section purlins cannot be lap connected. Instead, they must be welded or bolted together for structural integrity.

    C Section purlins come in different lengths, depending on the size of the beam. Generally speaking, a four-inch purlin can span 12 feet, a six-inch purlin can span 18 feet, an eight-inch purlin can span 25 feet, and a ten-inch purlin can span 30 feet. The length of the beam can also be customized to fit the specific needs of a project.

    Steel C-section purlins are designed to last for several decades. With proper maintenance and care, they can last for up to 50 years or more. The life span of the beam depends on a number of factors, such as the type of steel used, the environment in which it is installed, and how often it is subjected to wear and tear.

    C section steel purlins are durable, with a good strength to weight ratio - they can be further galvanised for increased durability and corrosion resistance.

    C section purlins can span good lengths, as necessary for their use in mezzanine flooring, door framing, and further wall support. They can be prefabricated for ease of installation, maintaining straightness

    The span of a purlin will depend on the run system used (whether it is a single span, or double span), the type of purlin and size of purlin used, and the spacing between purlins; purlins are typically placed 16 inches apart. A single purlin can span up to 10 metres safely, though it is safe to assume that the greater the length, the wider the purlin will need to be.

    The primary purpose of C purlins is to provide the structure of walls and floors in steel framed buildings. However, they can also be used for door mounting, window trimming, parapet rails, side rails, and brickwork restraints. 

    Steel framed buildings typically include agricultural buildings, industrial warehouses, and commercial buildings. 

    Steel C-section purlins are usually made of hot rolled steel and formed into their distinctive “C” shape. The process involves heating the metal to a certain temperature and then moulding it while cooling it. After the metal has cooled and hardened, it is cut to size according to the specifications given by the customer.

    The span of a purlin is the distance between two points that it needs to be able to support. It is measured from the centreline of one flange to the centreline of the other flange and will vary depending on the size and type of beam used. The span should always be equal to or greater than the distance required by design.
