Heavy Timber Trusses
Rigidply can help turn your vision into reality. Glulam Heavy Timber Trusses are used in some of the most dramatic architectural projects in modern construction. The designs are endless. Trusses can combine straight and curved laminated timbers. They can also be engineered to join with other structural components.
Laminated Wood Timbers are no longer just an accessory product used to improve the appeal of an entrance, portico or other specialty area of the structure. Heavy timber trusses are now used as the primary structural component of buildings needing the heavy timber interior style. The stability and strength of laminated wood timbers offers improved appearance and span capabilities, and minimizes the potential for cracking, checking and other issues common with trusses constructed of solid timbers. Connections can be exposed or hidden. Other building materials such as steel rods and sections can be combined with laminated wood timber components to provide a “just-for-you” appearance.
Do you want to help preserve our forests?
Choose wood. Wood is one of the few truly renewable natural resources. By using laminated wood we can preserve some of the remaining forests. Laminated wood products facilitate the use of smaller trees, thus allowing some virgin timber to remain.
