What exactly are Roof Trusses?
A roof truss is essentially a triangulated system of straight interconnected structural elements, with considerable load-bearing capabilities. (For more detailed information about the anatomy of a roof truss, read our article entitled “Anatomy of a Roof Truss”)
Prefabricated Timber Roof Trusses are used in many applications such as standard roofs for houses, apartments, multi-dwelling residential developments and commercial buildings. Engineered by MiTek Industries SA, world leaders in roof truss technology, all our roofs are manufactured with SABS quality treated SA Pine (Structural Timber).
Roof Trusses are the most widely used form of roof framing in South Africa today. Some of the advantages of using prefabricated timber roof trusses are:
- A practical and fully engineered solution to your roofing requirements
- Prefabricated timber roof trusses use up to 40% less timber than site-made roof trusses
- Quick installation of the roof structure
- A reduction in on-site waste materials
Our prefabricated roof trusses have exceptional load bearing capabilities and can easily support the roof covering of your choice, whether it is tiled or corrugated / IBR roof sheeting.
