PRIMARY FRAMING MEMBERS –
Primary built–up members (H-Beams) are manufactured by gas cutting of HR steel plates in required sizes, standards confirming to ASTM A572 Grade 345 Mpa. These plates of various sizes are welded together on one side by continuous welding and other side by stitch welding at regular intervals to make an H-beam.
These are custom-built sections, so virtually any size of section can be made as per design requirement. Splice plates are welded at the end of different H – beam sections. These H-beam sections are assembled together by bolting the splice plates to make a complete frame assembly.
The Primary members are available in high grade steel of minimum yield strength of 345 Mpa.
Purlins, girts and eave struts are secondary structural members used to support the wall and roof panels. Purlins are used on the roof; girts are used on the walls and eave struts are used at the intersection of the sidewall and the roof.
Secondary members have two other functions:
- Act as struts that help in resisting part of the longitudinal loads that are applied on thebuilding such as wind and earthquake loads .
- Provide lateral bracing to the compression flanges of the main frame members therebyincreasing frame capacity.
Purlins, girts and eave struts are available in high grade steel of minimum yield strength of 345 MPa in 1.5 mm to 2.5 mm thicknesses. These members come with a pre-galvanized finish or with a coat of Zn chromate primer for corrosion protection.
