Trussed rafters are individually designed components
made from kiln-dried, strength-graded timber joined together with
steel nailplates. They provide a structural framework to support
the roof fabric, ceilings and /or floors.
Trussed rafters can be used on a wide range of building types including
timber frame, masonry and steel frame. Although most commonly used
for domestic housing they are increasingly chosen for commercial
and industrial buildings such as offices, shops, hotels and leisure
Trussed rafters stand out as a sophisticated and highly-engineered
product, with superior fabrication underpinned by high production
standards. They are more flexible and more cost effective than many
other methods of roof construction.
