Thinking ‘curved roof’ – think PosiStruts

Calco Timbers in South Geelong (Vic) are one of several MiTek fabricators to have perfected a way to manufacture curved PosiStrut trusses. For many, the extra cost of producing a roof with steel framing, especially a curved roof, can dictate the end design. That’s what makes MiTek PosiStruts so attractive to architects who are prepared to explore different building methods. “It’s imperative architects keep themselves up-to-date with products like PosiStruts,” said Steve Hofer of Williams, Kaye, Hofer Architects. A 2-storey home they built, high on a hill, overlooking scenic Port Phillip Bay in Victoria is testament to that!

Often thought of as ‘an innovative flooring solution,’ MiTek PosiStruts are now winning over architects as an affordable, effective roofing solution too. The on-site advantages aren’t lost on builders either: PosiStruts’ unique ‘open web’ design provides excellent access for services, whilst making them lighter than solid timber joists or other alternatives.
