Z purlins and Z girts are also available with other depths and flange widths. Contact Flexospan for information on custom purlin and girt structural steel dimensions.

Sample Calculations
Calculation Formula Example
Wind load (sizing girts)
Wind load (lbs/sq ft) x .75 x girt spacing (ft) x wind coefficient (typically 1.1) = Allowable load/linear foot of girt

20 psf x .75 x 5 Ft x 1.1 = 82.5 plf

Live (snow) Load
(load on purlin)
Snow load (lbs/sq ft) x purlin spacing (ft) = allowable load/linear foot of purlin 20 psf x 5 ft = 100 plf
Note: These sample calculations are basic. Many different variables can affect loading. For example, drift loading, building height, geographic location, etc. Please contact Flexospan if special conditions exist.
