THE VERSATILE TRUSSED RAFTER ROOF

The design and engineering of trussed rafter roofs allows cost-effective and rapid construction of almost any ‘roof-scape’. A wide variety of truss rafter profile types have evolved to solve almost every building design requirement. Comprehensive roof layout drawings and details are tailored to the exact requirements of individual projects. The wide variety trussed rafter types offer more economic solutions than traditional framing methods. Complex roof structures such as hips can be modelled, tested and manufactured from the minimal material required.

There are a number of truss rafter profiles or configurations which have been adopted as common or standard. For example the most frequently used is the fink roof truss recognised by its distinctive W-shaped internal web pattern. Over a significant range of spans the fink roof truss configuration is the most cost effective.

TRUSSED RAFTERS – THE ECONOMIC SOLUTION
  • Free design Sevice
  • Value roof packages
  • Roof structures are erected quickly
  • Trusses provide economy in the use of timber, more so when spaced at 600mm centres
  • Erection procedure is simple and repetitive, requiring only a minimum of skilled labour
  • Architects and developers have a free rein in forming economic roof-scapes.
  • Standard designs require only external walls to be load bearing, thereby eliminating intermediate supports
  • Waste and pilferage are minimized
  • Programmed deliveries to suit construction schedules reduce handling and storage cost
The Adaptable Trussed Rafter Roof

There are a number of trussed rafter types allowing the design and construction of a variety of roof designs or ‘roof-scapes’. Listed below are some more common roof constructs and the links take you to a page showing how they are designed. Perhaps these may form the basis of your next project ?
