Steeline C Purlins are an ideal product that provide long spans between portal frames on your commercial building. Steeline C Purlins are available in different sizes and material strengths to match the design specification of your building. Steeline C Purlins are made from quality Galvaspan® steel and are roll formed to length with holes punched to your specification.
Steeline C Section Structural Purlins are mainly used for commercial applications but are just as cost effective to be used for smaller type garages and carports. The C sections can also form part of the columns and rafters in these smaller applications.
