Room in the Roof Trusses

The Room in the Roof trussed rafter, or attic truss, is a simple and effective way of providing the structural roof and floor in the same component as illustrated here.

The advantages of a Room in the Roof trussed rafter, or Attic truss, are many:

  • Quick and easy erection offering cost savings on site as well as providing a weathertight shell at an earlier stage
  • The need for complex, labour intensive site joints is removed
  • A complete roof structure is provided, ready prepared for roof finishes, plasterboard and floorboarding
  • There are no restrictions on the ground floor layout as the trusses can span onto the external walls
  • The Room in the Roof truss is specifically designed to accommodate all loads required for an additional room
  • Consistent quality is assured as the Attic trusses are factory assembled

With the ever increasing demand to optimise land, many housebuilders are now specifying Room in the Roof trusses for new build programmes as they offer additional living space without increasing the footprint.

A significant proportion of all trussed rafters now produced are Room in the Roof trusses as they are one of the most economical solutions to adding rooms to a new house or apartment block.

Room in the Roof trusses can be equally beneficial for commercial or industrial applications, capable of spanning over 8m without internal load bearing walls, and 16m with load bearing walls.
