  4. @Forever Fendt Out of curiosity what depth and gauge is the Z's priced on. That's seriously cheap for any size Z especially with the steel price increases at the start of January.

  6. Whatever purlins you buy, please ensure you use a minimum of 1.4 gauge. The tek screw manufacturers state that is the minimum thickness of teks to fix into properly.
  7. I would assume it would be based on a sleeved system aswell? Personally i would go for a 1.6mm as a minimum.
  8. Yes I would imagine it would be sleeved, 95% of designed cold rolled systems will need sleeves, but I would not say going to 1.6 minimum is necessary. We mostly do industrial buildings and 1.4 or 1.5 gauge is the most common, can't recall the last building we did with a 1.6 gauge rail or purlin. Quite often the design states 1.3 but then they are upgraded to 1.4 or 1.5 by the minimum spec requirements.
  9. I always work on a 1.6mm minimum just because we have always been advised the tek screws should fix into a minimum of 1.5mm.
  10. ...or you work on 1.6 minimum because your a salesman and purlins are charged according to weight ;););)
  11. :eek: If that was the case i'd recommend 2.5mm as a minimum:LOL:
