  For the cold formed purlins, I have seen in some projects that they have
used sag-rods which are prepared from slit coil waste-1.5mm thick and bent
to get a circular shape of 15-16mm dia, the joint being open say 2-3mm . The
ends of these sag rods have the clips (as in umbrella) to lock these rods in
purlins. How are these sag-rods compared to normal rods, angles etc?.  Are
