To understand this we really need to get down to the basics of roof purlins in metal construction.Purlins are an integral part of a pre-engineered structural steel package. Such structural supports extend through the rafter beams perpendicularly.   Often known as “sheeting sheets,” purlins provide the roofing portion of a steel building’s secondary framing.Three structural functions are provided by metal roofing purlins.

Firstly, the roof is protected by the purlins.Second, purlins tie the rafters together, stabilizing and reinforcing the rigid framing of the frame.And the third, between the spans of the individual framing bays, purlins provide additional support.As an added benefit, purlins increase the resistance of the system to excessive rainfall.
