Types of steel transoms
This is the simplest variety of U-profiles (2x bent U-profile). These sections are used as wall transoms with small spans, but most often they are used as replacement elements for the assembly of joinery.
C-profiles (4x bent C-profile) are most often used as wall transoms. They are installed in a horizontal position in a single-span system, both between and to the face of the uprights.
CL-profiles (6x bent C-profile) offer the same benefits as C-profiles, but due to the additional bends, they have an increased load capacity.
T-profile (for eaves) is a modified C-section fully adapted to simultaneously perform the function of a roof purlin and a wall transom within the eaves.
One of the most commonly used cold-formed sections are C-profiles. They come in several options, depending on the application and the expected strength parameters. These sections are most often used as single-span wall transoms. They are also successfully used as roof purlins or container profiles. The type of transom cross-section used is closely related to the required load capacity and cost-effectiveness of the solution.
The exception is the eaves transom, which is usually made of a profile bent four times with the upper shelf bent so as to adjust it to the angle of the roof slope. This profile simultaneously serves as a roof purlin and a wall transom, transferring loads in two planes.
If you need a profile with dimensions other than those specified in the Schrag catalogues, please contact our design office, which, thanks to an individual approach to each project, proposes the most effective solutions, which most importantly are following applicable standards and technical knowledge.
