Uses and Applications for Purlin Brackets

August 24, 2017

Viewed by the uninitiated, Purlin Brackets are general purpose angle linkages. They're located in the construction connector aisle in local hardware shops, so what's the big deal? Well, not to put too fine a point on it, these structural linkages are responsible for joining longitudinal beam sections, even when those beams meet at an unusual angle. Let's break down some important applications where these linkages perform at their best.

Purlin Brackets: Shed Construction Essentials

Contemporary steel sheds drill into the soil overnight. Spoil-free and capable of standing tall without any kind of concrete foundations, ground piles hold them by screwing their helical rods deep into the earth. Above that stable ground system, the brackets couple the structure's metal backbone. They tie the frame sections together at an angle so that the structure can contain livestock or farming equipment. Alternatively, perhaps when a new welding business requires a workshop area, the support elements pair with long fasteners to form an industrial shed.

Prefabricated Support Elements

Industrial sheds provide one central avenue of use for Purlin Brackets, but what about some general usage examples that deviate from this structural norm? Z-Bracket variants perform as slot-in conveniences when welding supports are impractical. That is to say, an array of prefabricated brackets is easier to install than some welded cut out, especially when these support parts are installed at height. Look to Purlin Brackets when a structural fastening job is being conducted on a tall scaffolding tower.

Electrical Support Fittings

There are Purlin solutions that target electrical systems. These are the brackets that hold cable trays and metal trunk. They hold small angled metal panels when speakers and display panels require a reliable mounting aid. In airports and railway stations, then, adjustable Purlin Brackets are fabricated with oval loops and plastic turning screws so that these electrical housings can be mounted and adjusted until they satisfy the installation team. That same system is also used in acoustical cancellation technology, with the same brackets taking on the role of an acoustic panel mount.

In the structural realm, a construction-oriented place that uses prefabricated metal beams and fasteners, Purlin Brackets act as the juncture-critical ties that bind these frame sections together. Beyond this important usage area, they replace welding equipment when those metal fusing methods are impractical. Finally, adjustable variants of this ever-changing form factor mechanically couple pipe platforms and cable runs, plus they fix the large system parts that lie at the terminating ends of those long runs.
