Agripurlin® is a steel roof purlin specifically designed for the agricultural sector. Its unique design makes it over twice as strong as the equivalent timber size. This has been proven in tests carried out in Ireland at the Dublin Institute of Technology, Bolton Street.
Agripurlin® is available in size:
125 x 75mm (5” x 3”) in 1.2mm & 1.5mm thickness
150 x 75mm (6” x 3”) in 1.2mm & 1.5mm thickness
175 x 75mm (7” x 3”) in 1.2mm & 1.5mm thickness
200 x 75mm (8” x 3”) in 1.5mm thickness
Agripurlin® takes full advantage of steel's high strength to weight ratio. This allows the Agripurlin® to be half as heavy as the equivalent timber size making on-site erection much simpler and less time consuming. Agripurlin® is pre-punched saving further on-site time and thereby cutting costs. Agripurlin® also contains weep holes to prevent condensation accumulating water in the flanges.
To replace timber in 4.8m span buildings use Agripurlin® in the same size as the equivalent timber size. For spans over 4.8m (15’9”) please use the load tables on page 12. When using Agripurlin™ with asbestos or fibre cement sheeting please contact our Technical Department.
