WHAT ARE TRUSSED RAFTERS?
Trussed rafters are individually designed pre-fabricated timber components made from strength-graded timber and joined together with punched metal plate connectors. They provide a structural framework to support the roof fabric of a building, ceilings and floors. Pre-fabricated timber trussed rafters are used in over 90% of all modern housing developments and an ever increasing proportion of commercial buildings.
