Trussed rafters remain one of today’s preferred choice of roof construction for domestic housing and are increasingly favoured for commercial & industrial developments such as offices, shops, hotels and leisure centres.

Our trussed rafters are manufactured from softwoods which have been strength-graded in accordance with relevant standards and Alpine punched metal plate timber fasteners which have been fully tested and certified by UK Accreditation Authorities.

Our roof truss products have been used by contractors in a wide range of construction projects throughout Ireland, spanning community and social housing developments, schools, and private builds, as well as increasingly in the industrial sector.

Their popularity is partly thanks to their compatibility with a variety of construction methods including timber frame, masonry and steel frame. They also benefit from superior flexibility and cost effectiveness over many other methods of roof construction.
