Roof Trusses

Engineered timber roof structure

Roof trusses hugely reduce the amount of time spent installing the roof structure. The vast majority of cutting usually associated with traditional roof construction is eliminated, and designs which would have been impossible with traditional methods, or would have required steel structures, are easily achieved by using engineered timber.

Jewson supply roof trusses, spandrel systems and Posi-joistsTM and can offer PEFC certificated timber roof trusses and FSC certification for I-Beam, sheet materials and Glulam.

A full set of calculations proving the truss design has structural soundness are provided for each project.

Spandrel panels

Spandrel panels incorporate a specially designed and factory produced timber framed panel to separate walls that would otherwise have been constructed in masonry.

Spandrel panels offer:

  • One trade, time-saving roof solution.
  • Avoid additional scaffolding cost.
  • Comply with current building regulations for fire and sound.
Glulam (Glued Laminated Timber)

Glulam's tensile characteristics make it suitable for long span and loadbearing widths. It is an exceptionally strong material, and is usually used where visual appearance is important and it can be shaped to form spacious buildings. Glulam is an environmentally friendly, low energy product.

Jewson can provide full Chain of Custody and design certification.
