Eaves Beams



As the name suggests, Eaves Beams are used in conjunction with side rails and purlins to allow a fixing point for sheeting and gutters.

We manufacture a range of pre-engineered pressed structural channels to complement our cladding, Z-purlin and C-section ranges. Manufactured from high tensile Z39 steel in lengths of up to 6.5m. Pre-galvanised so no additional finish is required, our Eaves Beams satisfy the requirements of BS5950: Part 5 (1998). They are compatible with and ideally suited to a wide range of roof and wall systems. 

This solution incorporates a full range of cleats, struts and brackets, facilitating a wide range of cladding system requirements.

  • Pre-Galvanised - no additional finishing or painting required.

  • Pre-punched holes -minimising assembly time and errors.

  • Wide range of sections and spans to suit an array of applications.
