What are Cee Purlins?
In steel construction, the term purlin typically refers to roof framing members that span parallel to the building eave and support the roof decking or sheeting. The steel purlins are in turn supported by rafters or walls. Metal C Purlins are light in weight and perfect for simple span construction.
Metal Cee Purlins are available in a wide variety of sizes and lengths. See graph below for sizes of galvanized metal purlins. Custom sizes and lengths available with a two week lead time. Metal purlins are in stock for immediate will call or delivery. Route trucks servicing the entire United States.

All SSMA products have a four part identification code which identifies the size (both depth and flange width), styles and material thickness of each number.
|Member Depth:||Flange Width:||Style:||Material Thickness:|
|(Example: 6″= 600 x 1/100 inches)||(Example: 1-5/8″= 1.625″= 162 x 1/100 inches)||(Example: Stud or Joist Section = S)||(Example: 0.054 in. = 54 mils; 1 mil = 1/1000 in.)|
|All member depths are taken in 1/100 inches.|
For all “T” sections member depth is the
inside to inside dimension.
|All flange widths are taken in 1/100 inches.||The four alpha characters utilized by|
the designator system are:
S = Stud
|Material thickness is the minimum base metal thickness in mils.|
Minimum base metal thickness represents 95% of the design thickness.
