Z-shaped steel is a common cold-bent thin-walled steel, named because its cross-sectional shape resembles the English letter "Z". It is made of galvanized steel plate by cold bending and rolling. It has the advantages of light weight, high strength, convenient construction, and economical and affordable. It is widely used in construction, bridges, vehicle manufacturing and other fields.

Light weight: Z-shaped steel adopts thin-walled structure, high unit weight bearing capacity, light weight, which can effectively reduce the amount of structural steel and reduce the project cost.

High strength: The cross-sectional shape of Z-shaped steel is reasonable, which optimizes the material's stress performance, has large overall stiffness and bearing capacity, can withstand large loads, and is suitable for the construction of purlins, wall beams, supports and other structures.

Convenient construction: Z-shaped steel has standardized dimensions, can be factory-produced, is easy to install on site, has fast construction speed, and can shorten the construction period.

Economical and affordable: Z-shaped steel has a mature production process, low cost, and high comprehensive cost performance. It is an economical and affordable building material.

Construction: In buildings such as houses, factories, warehouses, etc., Z-shaped steel is often used as structural components such as purlins, wall beams, supports, etc. to provide support and partitions for buildings.

Bridges: In highway bridges, railway bridges and other bridges, Z-shaped steel is often used as structural components such as bridge supports and railings to assist in the load-bearing and maintenance of bridges.

Vehicle manufacturing: In vehicles such as cars and trains, Z-shaped steel is often used as structural components such as frames and body parts to improve the strength and rigidity of vehicles.

Others: In addition, Z-shaped steel can also be used in other fields, such as shelves, keels, doors and windows, etc., as important supports or structural components.


Light weight, high strength, convenient construction, economical


Thin-walled structure, weak impact resistance
Easy to local instability, need to pay attention to strengthening measures

Selection and use:
When selecting Z-shaped steel, it should be comprehensively considered according to the load-bearing requirements, use environment and economic conditions of the specific project, and select Z-shaped steel of appropriate size, specification and material. When using Z-shaped steel, the following points should be noted:

Z-shaped steel should be installed perpendicular to the purlin direction and firmly connected to the purlin.
The load-bearing end of the Z-shaped steel should have sufficient support and anchoring measures.
Z-shaped steel should be avoided from bumps and collisions during transportation and storage to prevent surface damage.
