Battens and Roof Trusses

Photo of TrussesIn order to allow adequate manufacturing and delivery time it makes sense to order your roof trusses once your build has reached first floor joist level, or window level if you are building a single story only. The trusses are always made to order specifically for each building in accordance with the architects plans, and they will need to be of appropriate structural strength and quality to ensure that they will do the job of supporting the roof in all conditions for decades to come.

The type of truss you require may already have been decided by your architect, if not please refer to our diagrams of common types of truss to establish which type will suit your particular design requirements. Special trusses for use where rooms are to be placed in the roof space are also available.
