TIMBER ROOFING

Our roof truss manufacturing plant has the capacity to produce timber roof trusses up to 22m long and 4,5m high in one piece.

Advantages of using timber for your trusses

Whether it is a residential or commercial project, the roof of any structure is a vital component because it protects its occupants from the outside elements. It is vital that you choose roof trusses that are suitable to your needs.
Timber is Flexible and Versatile: Because timber trusses are compatible with other structural products, they can be linked to other trusses and components. Using timber trusses can also create large open areas – ideal for designers and architects to use creatively. Partitions can also be moved without the building’s structural integrity being compromised.

It is Economical: Because timber trusses are light in weight, it’s not always necessary to use heavy machinery to install. The waste generated by timber at a building site is minimal, making clean-up work less costly.
