Roof Trusses - The Flexible Roofing Solution

Roof trusses are the timber structures used in buildings to bridge the area above a room and provide support for a roof. Trussed rafters are widely used in housing, schools, offices, shops, hotels and leisure centres. More economic than traditional methods, using up to 40% less timber than traditional roofs, they can be used with timber frame, masonry and steel frame construction.

Manufactured from timber, the only truly renewable building material, trussed rafters deliver on environmental credentials, and have greater thermal efficiency than aluminium, steel, or concrete. Trussed rafters are also quick and simple to erect, keeping the use of skilled labour to a minimum.

About Ochil Timber Roof Trusses

Established in 1973, Ochil was the first independent roof truss manufacturer in Scotland, and so we bring a wealth of experience to the design and manufacture of our timber roof trusses. Using specialist software provided by global supplier ITW, at Ochil we can design and supply versatile trusses and timber components for a variety of architectural specifications, from the simple to the complex – including curved roofs, mono-pitched roofs, and room-in-the roof designs.

Generally roof trusses are spaced at 600mm centres, giving economy in timber use. Standard designs of roof trusses require only external walls to be load bearing, eliminating the need for intermediate supports. All this means that architects and designers can create exciting roof designs in an economic way.

Using our expertise in design and manufacture we can offer complete solutions and advice on all aspects of roof engineering. This ranges from the creation of a specialist detail, through the prefabrication of additional timbers such as spandrels for modular roofs, to the delivery of whole-roof systems design.
