GET TO KNOW YOUR ROOF TERMINOLOGY…

GANG-NAIL TRUSSES

Gang-Nail timber trusses or trussed rafters as they are sometimes referred to are used mainly in homes but are becoming increasingly common in commercial and industrial building constructions too.

When compared to the traditionally built roof, trussed rafters will typically provide material savings of up to 40% by using less timber. Trussed rafters are manufactured off-site in a controlled environment ensuring a high-quality product and delivered to site with minimum additional work required. The gang-nail truss system is based on a gang-nail timber connector which is a steel plate with multiple spikes or teeth projecting from one face. The connector is pressed into the timber using a hydraulic or pneumatic press causing the teeth to be embedded into the timber. The timber elements can be joined together with strength and ease to make the trusses. Once the gang-nail trusses are installed to engineering standard, an A19 certificate is issued.

After application, the timber gets brushed and the wood gets treated with an oil which brings the surface to life with an amazing effect. Cladding can be done using the following materials: Rheinzinck, Nutec, Roof Sheeting and various types of Timber
