Z Purlins & Timber

The use of Z purlins for supporting roof sheets or vertical wall cladding is a traditional, well-proven system that offers a high degree of strength, flexibility and weight-saving when compared to timber or hot-rolled steel sections. As roof purlin manufacturers, our steel Z purlins, roof purlin sleeves and purlin cleats are all the highest quality, ensuring your roofing project stays together securely for its full lifespan.

We produce standard 175mm Z purlin profiles that are made from high tensile, Z39 structural grade galvanized steel that is 1.8mm thick and with a galvanised coating that provides long life and requires no additional finish. Our production system enables the accurate manufacturing of roof purlins up to 9 metres in one continuous length, while our high-quality roof purlin sleeves allow you to create virtually any length that you’d want.

Additionally, roof purlins are easy to handle on site and during installation, providing a quick solution and allowing you to weatherproof a structure as quickly as possible. For expert advice on creating a secure and long-lasting framework, read our purlin framework advice page.
