SpaceRafter Options

Loose SpaceRafter

As the name suggests, this option allows the SpaceRafter to be supplied loose for both domestic and commercial projects. With the option of rigid insulation already installed between the timber chords, this truly is an easy and effective solution.

Retrofit SpaceRafter

Retrofit is the perfect solution for anyone looking for a quick way to add a room to their home. Backed by a simple, straightforward installation method, Retrofit SpaceRafter can add significant space quickly and efficiently, with great results.

Cassetted SpaceRafter

Cassetted SpaceRafters again are suitable for domestic and commercial use and come complete with sheathing, plasterboard and insulation for ultimate speed of installation. There is even the option to choose duo-pitch solutions which are delivered folded and open using a hinge at the apex. The savings here are twofold: they are extremely cost-efficient on-site and they remove the need for a ridge beam.
