Roof trusses

Supplier:
Pryda

Prefabricated timber roof trusses are designed and manufactured by licensed Pryda truss plants using the Pryda system. The trusses are designed and engineered using Pryda's software, Pryda Build. Licensed truss manufacturers are regularly audited by Pryda to ensure product quality is maintained.

Prefabricated timber roof trusses have been part of Australian building practices for over 40 years. Builders who regularly use roof trusses claim the following benefits:

Cost Effectiveness

  • Long clear spans can be achieved at an economical rate. Trusses can easily span 10-15 metres or more without the need for internal supports. This is particularly useful for ‘open plan’ designed homes.
  • the Pryda Build software ensures the most cost effective outcome within the set design parameters. Trusses are individually engineered which optimises the timber truss components to suit the design loads applied to them.
  • Manufacturing of trusses optimises timber stock, leading to minimisation of timber waste.

Peace of Mind for Building Authorities and Certifying Engineers

There are stringent requirements associated with the development and use of Pryda’s design software, Pryda Build, which delivers the associated benefits:

  • Alleviates the need for designers and project engineers to prepare detailed specifications associated with the roof, floor and wall components. This can be supplied by Licensed Pryda Fabricators.
  • Building authorities can often provide building consent based on the documentation supplied by the Licensed Pryda Fabricators without the requirement for independent third party certification, particularly in residential construction.

Design Flexibility

  • In most cases the design and layout of trusses can easily accommodate air conditioning units, hot water systems, skylights and other roof features.
  • Trusses can accommodate a variety of architectural specifications – such as coffered ceilings, box gutters and raked ceilings.

Ease of Installation

  • Installation times are reduced by trusses being delivered to site ready to install.
  • Unlike materials supplied on site for stick-built construction, trusses are designed specifically for each job, thereby reducing the prevalence of material theft.
  • Trusses are made in precision jigs to ensure uniformity of roof planes.
  • A truss roof is supplied as an entire package as distinct from stick-built roofs supplied by different suppliers. i.e. steel beams, LVL beams and timber roof framing. This also provides scheduling benefits.
  • Manufacture of trusses is undertaken off-site so work progress, other than final installation, is not limited by site conditions (i.e. weather conditions; or limited space for ‘cutting out’ on small sites and multi-residential sites).
