Roof Trusses

Trussed rafters are individually designed timber components, engineered to provide a structural frame for a wide range of roof structures.

Prefabricated timber roof trusses are used in over 90% of all modern housing and in an increasingly large proportion of commercial and industrial buildings, particularly those with a varied and interesting roof design. 

As roof structures are becoming increasingly complex, housebuilders are looking to major roof truss manufacturers, such as ATE, to offer expertise and cost effective solutions. ATE works with many of the leading housebuilders and construction companies.
