Tophats are a common component used in steel framework construction.

In steel framework construction, tophats are often used as purlins, which are horizontal members that support the roof and help to transfer the weight of the roof to the building’s vertical load-bearing elements. Tophats may also be used as studs in wall framing or as joists in floor systems.

One of the advantages of using tophats in steel framework construction is that they are lightweight and easy to handle, which can help to speed up the construction process. Additionally, tophats are strong and durable, making them an excellent choice for structures that need to withstand heavy loads and harsh weather conditions.

Overall, tophats are a versatile and essential component in steel framework construction, providing strength, stability, and durability to buildings of all shapes and sizes.
