Timber Roof Trusses

Lawmans frames and trusses are designed from the client's plans by our qualified and experienced Estimators and Detailers. We use Mitek engineering software which enables us to design and manufacture trusses for the simplest to most complex roof styles.

Pre-fabricated roof trusses engineered and manufactured by Lawmans Frame and Truss are built with only the best quality timber with brackets pre-fitted to girder trusses for faster installation. They can be used with pre-fabricated wall frames or frames cut and installed on-site. Our roof trusses are engineered and manufactured in accordance with all Australian Standards.

Lawmans Frame and Truss takes pride in being able to design and manufacture roof trusses for technically difficult sites.

PosiStrut trusses are parallel chord trusses using timber chords on flat and unique PosiStrut "V" webs.

Posi‐Struts are manufactured from galvanised steel and incorporate integral Gang‐Nail teeth at each end. PosiStrut webs have a "V" shaped cross section which enables both tension and compression forces to be transmitted, eliminating the need to cut large quantities of timber components which are required with alternate construction methods.

Posi‐Strut trusses make more efficient use of timber than conventional joists, as they have timber concentrated at the top and bottom of the truss where it works most effectively. This concept is similar to that of steel universal beams, where the majority of steel is located in the flanges.

The efficient use of timber, combined with the strength of the Posi‐Strut webs, make the Posi‐Strut truss a very lightweight, yet strong structural member.

PosiStrut trusses offer the following advantages over solid joists:

  • Ducting and other services can be run between chords and webs
  • No drilling or notching required to accommodate services
  • Additional width available for fixing flooring
  • Ceiling material can be fixed directly to the truss bottom chords
  • Greater spans can be achieved with floor trusses than with solid timber joists, creating large open areas
  • Internal load bearing walls, piers, or stumps and bearers can be reduced or eliminated
  • Shrinkage problems sometimes encountered with unseasoned solid timber are reduced or eliminated
  • Lightweight and easy to handle
  • Load sharing ability
  • Strongback bracing increases floor stiffness and reduces squeaky floors
  • Optional top chord support reduces on‐site labour
  • Top chord hanging
