What Factors Affect the Weight of Z-Purlins in Practical Applications?

The factors that influence the weight of Z-purlins in practical applications primarily include the specifications of the raw materials, the type of material, the place of origin, and the number of galvanizing layers.

Firstly, the specifications of the raw materials directly impact the cross-sectional size and weight of the purlins. For instance, Z-purlins of different thicknesses and widths will have varying weights.

Secondly, the type of material, such as whether it is high-strength steel or ordinary carbon steel, also affects the weight of the purlins, as different materials have different densities and strengths. Moreover, the place of origin may impact the cost and quality of the material, thereby affecting the production cost and final weight of the purlins.

Lastly, the number of galvanizing layers is also a significant factor, as galvanizing can enhance the corrosion resistance of the steel, but it also increases the weight of the material.

The weight of Z-purlins is influenced by various factors, including but not limited to the specifications of the raw materials, the type of material, the place of origin, and the number of galvanizing layers.

What Is Z-section Steel?

Z-section steel is a widely used type of cold-formed, thin-walled section steel, with a thickness ranging from 1.6 to 3.0 mm and a section height of 120 to 350 mm.

It is manufactured from hot-rolled (painted) and galvanized materials and is frequently employed in large steel structure plants.

Z-section Steel

The processing length and holes can be customized to meet specific requirements.

Main uses of Z-section steel:

The Z-shaped steel that is cold-formed is popularly used for a wide range of applications due to its high compressive strength and adjustable specifications and sizes.

It is a preferred choice in various areas, including automobiles, railway vehicles, building doors and windows, transportation, shelves, electrical cabinets, highway guardrails, building steel structures, containers, steel templates and scaffolds, solar energy supports, shipbuilding, bridges, power transmission towers, steel sheet piles, cable trays, agriculture, furniture, storage, guide rails, keel steel, pipeline support for vegetable greenhouses, and in various municipal construction projects.
