Steelwood trusses are prefabricated top or bottom chord bearing trusses combining the strength of steel and the easy fixing characteristics of wood. The timber parallel top and bottom chords and vertical compression members are combined with diagonal "V" shaped steel tension web members.
Steelwood trusses are engineered and fabricated specifically for each application.
Steelwood trusses can be used in virtually all residential structures. They are also ideal for commercial and industrial applications including schools, gymnasiums, offices, restaurants, factories and warehouses.
The greater design freedom offered by Steelwood trusses brings many architectural opportunities such as cantilevered balconies.
