As an established UK manufacturer, Venture Steel Group offers a diverse range of services, including the production of steel purlin cleats. Our steel cleats, purposed for the support of structures, can be manufactured as either a standardised or bespoke product. Custom made steel cleats are fabricated to the exacting specifications of individual projects, including galvanised cleats with prefabricated holes, for the ease of installation and longevity of life.
Steel cleats are manufactured on our press brakes, with further punching operations taking place on our turret punches. Across our two sites, totalling over 75,000 sq. ft, Venture Steel Group has invested into a multitude of CNC power presses, press brakes, and turret punches to enable our handling of great material tonnage. We continue to meet agreed project timescales in spite of this, working to deliver a high quality product, on time and in budget.
Whether our customers are looking for a handful of steel cleats or thousands in conjunction with complementary purlins and other structures, Venture Steel Group is happy to take on all size projects. We can do this for clients across the globe.
Venture Steel Group further works with all types of steel, including hot dipped galvanised steel for the creation of lasting cleats. Our steel suits most standards, and can be supplied from gauges 0.38-6.00mm.
A cleat is a metal bracket, typically made from steel for increased strength, used within construction of houses and buildings, amongst other applications where metal framing systems are used. A cleat will often be used within the framing of a building, such as the roof and walls.
Steel cleats are used for the support of purlins within roofs, walls, and mezzanine floors. They prevent the purlin from tilting within its application. They can also be used within residential construction for various other support, such as providing a connection for wall plates, trusses, beams, and studs.
Cleats are typically categorised as weld-on, bolt-on, or concealed. This alludes to the method of incorporating the cleat into structural systems.
A weld-on cleat can be welding onto an existing frame for a purlin to be bolted on, whilst a bolt-on cleat will be bolted onto a frame. A concealed cleat is a hidden bracket which cannot be seen; they can be both bolted or welded on.
As a family-run business, Venture Steel Group offers a personal service, providing high levels of support for clients to ensure their expectations are understood and fulfilled by our team.
