Trussed rafters provide a structural framework to support the roof fabric, ceilings or floors of buildings.  There are many different types of roof trusses. Robust and reliable, they can be used on a wide range of building types including timber frame, masonry and steel frame.

The Trussed Rafter Association has created a simple animation outlining the various trussed rafter designs.

Scotts of Thrapston designs and manufactures timber roof trusses to suit individual requirements and you can view our web page showing the common trussed rafter types or, for further assistance, please contact the truss technical team on 01832 732366.
