Purlindek Steel Product- Use to Construct a Building

Jul 21st 2014 at 3:55 AM

When it comes to building construction with proper steel components, Purlindek is a notable steel product that has many advantages. The Purlindek steel profile boasts of an excellent geometric design with proper shape and depth to withstand high traffic areas where safety and performance become quite critical.

Purlindek steel has an enduring load-bearing profile that is cold-rolled and spreads across an area of 6 meters with 1.8 meter overhang. The best part is this steel profile is also used for all kinds of unsupported internal walls to a height of 10 meters. One might think that the base material of the product is thicker than its counterparts, but this is not true. This steel profile has a precise scientific design that can thwart any kind of environmental intervention.

Talking about performance, its great fixing systems and clever geometry make it enduring to harsh wind loading. For instance, if you do some research then you will find the application of Purlindek on Maui oil drilling place, which is 47 meters above the sea level. Harsh winds travelling at a speed of 300 kilometres per hour tend to rupture the steel condition on such an oil drilling platform which is next to the sea, but with Purlindek it is not possible.

There are other advantages of using Purlindek steel products. Such a steel profile can be used for very slanting slopes up to 1 degree. Unlike other steel profile, Purlindek can be used for very low pitch. Besides, you can count on its high rib, which measures 75 mm and has very few fixing points. As a result, this enables better weathering, less capillary attraction and protection from water. Since the profile looks bold and sturdy, and the ribs all consistent; it is visually appealing.

The Purlindek steel product has an internal partitioning from floor to ceiling with smooth finishes on both the sides. This high standard steel profile renders great strength to any building structure. However, the biggest plus point of all is Purlindek steel products are easy to fix most efficiently with less time required than in other steel products, and all of it at a reasonable price. Its few purlins and positive interlocking sheets make it easy for its fixing.

Purlindek is available in the form of galvanized steel, Zincalume, and also in a great range of coloured aluminium and steel. Besides, it is available in three varied gauges, whichever you choose as per the demand. Also, it can be fixed to trusses, timber and steel portal frames. An overall observation says that Purlindek offers strong and enduring structures and varied technical solutions for any kind of steel construction.
