Trust the experts when it comes to trusses

The roof is probably the most important aspect of any building.

It protects the building’s content and inhabitants from the elements, and is also one of the largest, heaviest and most costly components of the structure.

Proper support for the roof is thus crucial.

A roof truss is vital in supporting the roof’s decking, sheathing and other materials.

Trusses are meant to bear immense weight. Without a proper, sturdy roof truss, the roof might collapse, leading to major damage as well as possible injuries.

The overall look of the building also depends on the shape and angle in which the roof truss is erected.

When it comes to the safety of your building – and loved ones – trust the experts.

BBS Mica Empangeni specialises in the manufacturing of steel, as well as timber trusses.

Using state-of-the-art equipment, they design and supply SABS-graded trusses for domestic housing, all the way to large industrial steel projects.
