WOODEN TRUSSES FOR ATTICS
ON CONCRETE SLAB
In the case of concrete slab mounting, the slab must be as flat as possible. The opening of the farms is conditioned by transport. If we have openings larger than 12m, which is the standard length of a truck, the trusses will be delivered to the site in 2 sections, which will be joined on site with multi-nail plates. In any case, we get an open interior space, without intermediate support pillars. The configuration of the farms differs depending on the project, below are some common examples .
WOODEN TRUSSES WITH INTEGRATED FLOOR FOR ATTICS
In the version with concrete or wooden belt mounting, wooden farms with integrated flooring cannot withstand the same loads as an ordinary attic, because the lower sole of the farms replaces the floor above the last level. If we have higher loads, the lower sole can be replaced with Posi-Strut beams and this can withstand the loads of a concrete slab.
The configuration of the iron farms according to the project, below are some common examples.
ADVANTAGES OF ATTIC TRUSSES
Using specialized design softwares to maximise the interior space (both vertically and horizontally) without other interior posts. In this way we gain more space inside in an open-space configuration. This space can later be divided into rooms or used as storage space.
The difference between the classic/traditional carpentry system (with props, rafters, nail fasteners and steel clamps, etc.) and that of prefabricated attic trusses with MiTek connectors is primarily the very short construction. The trusses are manufactured off-site and assembled onsite, compared to the carpentry that requires time and labor on site. Through factory production, the attic trusses are made according to the execution details of the project, have quality control ensured and make wood consumption as efficient as possible.
