Metal Building Components
Main Frame Columns provide the vertical load bearing support for the entire building structure.
Galvanized Z-Purlins used as support for the roofing deck. These in turn sit on rafters that are built up beams.
A Wind-Bent column is a sub-frame consisting of two portal columns and a portal rafter placed between the two adjacent mainframe columns in a bay.
Intermittent support columns allow for smaller rafters by providing midspan support.
Here you see 1.5″ B Wide Rib Roof Deck supported by Galvanized C Purlins. Together with the concrete deck above them, they makeup the structure of the second floor.
These are the U-Panels that are the exterior skin of the building.
Galvanized C-Purlins used as lightweight framing for windows.
