The building’s skin is comprised of roll-formed panels used for the roof and walls. Sarker Steel Limited offers a variety of panel shapes available in standard unpainted Galvalume Plus® or a variety of painted colors. All painted panel materials are coated with your selected color on the outer side and an off-white washcoat on the back. The same materials are used for flashing and trim to define the buildings outer appearance.
Secondary framing is almost exclusively made from light gauge, roll-formed steel shapes such as C’s and Z’s. This part of the frame includes the purlins which support the roof and girts used to support the wall panels. Eave struts define the transition from the sidewall to roof framing, and the rake angle defines the edge where the roof and endwall meet. Jambs, headers, and sills for framed openings are also typically included in this group.
