C purlins steel and U channel bars are the building materials used in our seismic support products. Because of their similar appearance, many people will confuse these two materials. So what is the difference between C purlin and U channel bar?

C purlin

It is automatically processed and formed by a C purlin forming machine. C-shaped steel purlins can be divided into five specifications of 80, 100, 120, 140, 160 according to different heights, and the length determined according to the engineering design.

Different definition

C purlin: C purlin steel is automatically processed and formed by a C purlin roll forming machine. The C-shaped steel forming machine can automatically complete the C purlin forming process according to the given C-shaped steel size.

U channel bar: U channel bar is a long strip of steel with a groove-shaped section. It is a carbon structural steel for construction and machinery.

Different application

C purlin: C-shaped purlin is widely used in the purlins and wall beams of steel structure buildings, and can also be assembled into lightweight roof trusses, brackets, and other building components. In addition, it can also be used for columns, beams, and arms in light machinery manufacturing.

U Channel steel: U channel steel is mainly used in building structure, curtain wall engineering, mechanical equipment, and vehicle manufacturing.

Different types

C-shaped purlin: galvanized C purlin, hot-dip galvanized C purlin steel for cable tray, C purlin for the glass card slot, C-shaped purlin for glass curtain wall, C purlin for wiring trough, reinforced C purlin, double-hugged C-shaped purlin, single-sided C-shaped steel, manual forklift C-shaped steel, unequal-sided C purlin, straight-edged C-shaped purlin, beveled-edged C purlin steel, inner-curved C-shaped steel, inner-beveled C-shaped steel, roof (wall) purlin C-shaped steel, and automobile profile C-shaped steel, highway pillar C-shaped steel, solar support C purlin (21-80 series), formwork support C-shaped steel, precision C purlin for equipment, etc.

U Channel steel: U channel steel is divided into ordinary channel steel and light channel steel. U channel bar can be divided into 4 types according to its shape: cold-formed equal-side channel steel, cold-formed unequal-side channel steel, cold-formed inner-coiling channel steel, and cold-formed outer-coiling channel steel. According to the theory of steel structure, the channel steel wing plate should be stressed, that is to say, the channel steel should stand up, not lying down.
