Attic Trusses

Attic Trusses (Room In The Roof)

Room in the roof trusses, or attic trusses, are an ideal way to increase the habitable area of a house, or improve storage area.

Attic trusses are manufactured in a similar way to our other Trussed Rafter designs and always to the stringent levels of accuracy. Room in the roof trusses are the most economic ways to add space to a building.

When considering using attic trusses, thought should be put into the positions of dormer windows, roof lights, and staircases along with any other openings. The details required for pricing an enquiry regarding attic trusses include span of truss, pitch, tile type and room width and height.

Open Web joists can also be incorporated to further increase the benefits of attic trusses – by utilising the open web joist large services such as soil pipes and air conditioning systems are easily routed through the floor.

Open Web-Attic Trussed Rafters combine the solid feel of an Open Web Joist with the benefits of a conventional attic truss, the Open Web-attic enables you to span further than ever before. The strength of the floor provides increased living space within the attic, delivering maximum value to the home owner.
