Bobtail / Stub End
Trusses are designed in accordance with BS EN 1995-1-1: Part 3 & the relevant Building Regulations.
For economy, pitches are standardised to between 15 & 40 degrees – we can supply to your spec.
The usual spacing is 600mm (450mm or 400mm to support heavier loads).
We treat with new waterborne solutions, or with non-corrosive, spirit-based organic solvents.
Standard trusses can be designed up to 11 metres in 35mm timber, and 15 metres in 47mm timber. Wider spans are supplied as multiple trusses fixed together.
Any overhang can be supplied. NB Very large overhangs may cause the trusses to be uneconomical.
We use kiln dried and stress graded timber to European and British Standards.
We use and recommend Wolf 101 nailplates manufactured from structural grade galvanised mild steel to BS EN 14545. 1mm thick.
