Roof Trusses

What Are The Australian Standards For Roof Trusses?

Whether your upcoming project is residential or commercial, and your based in Newcastle, Central Coast or surrounding areas, it is important to remember that all suppliers of timber trusses and wall frames that you decide to work with; should comply to the Australian Standards. The  AS4440-2004, explicitly states in detail the installation of nail-plated roof trusses with regards to the bracing, connection and installation of timber roof trusses. This may also be applicable to the other building types where the parameters such as design and construction are within the limitations of the standard.

Therefore, this Australian Standard should be complied with, by all the roof trusses companies. This doesn’t include, however, the materials used in fabricating the roof trusses, choice of which depends entirely on the homeowners. Timber is a popular material for this purpose, because it is versatile and flexible, economical, energy efficient, durable, strong, eco-friendly and most of all, beautiful in its aesthetics.

If you’re looking for a manufacturer, Newcastle Frame and Truss adheres to all necessary standards. We are among those roof trusses companies in Newcastle that follow the Australian Standard specifications and deliver quality products and finishes to our customers.
