The ‘cathedral roof effect’ has a powerful visual impact on spatial volume and openness. It casts away the confinement of a flat ceiling and allows an endless possibility of designs in theme and style in the rafters.

Essentially a means of support and used to strengthen the roof framework, trusses have begun to take on a more versatile role and become part of the architectural and building inspiration.

The two-ply laminated kiln-dried wooden components have the appearance and feel of solid timber. Due to their triangular formation, the beams have a high strength-to-weight ratio compared to conventionally pitched roofs, and they use smaller wood dimensions that span greater distances, thereby reducing the total volume of wood contained within.

Lightweight timber trusses are easier to construct and install, therefore making them environmentally friendly. A trussed roof, performs optimally during extreme weather, maintaining a moderate indoor temperature.

Typical dimensions:

  • Thicknesses: 60 – 320 mm
  • Width: 100 – 280 mm
  • Length: 11.95 m
