Rigidply Rafters, Inc. - GluLam Heavy Timber Trusses

The heavy timber truss is an appropriate selection when looking for an aesthetically pleasing and functional structure. The truss can be used for residential, commercial and institutional purposes. An educated consumer is the best consumer. If you are still gathering facts you're probably asking some questions. Maybe the following will help.


DO YOU WANT A TRUSS THAT IS BEAUTIFUL AND STRUCTURAL?

It is a well known fact that wood is beautiful. You can stain it, sand it, carve it and paint it, plus there are a variety of species to chose from offering different characteristics and qualities.

 

DO YOU WANT A STRUCTURE WHICH CAN EXCEED A STEEL STRUCTURE IN A FIRE?

A timber truss with a "heavy timber" classification is usually one hour fire rated. It will form a self-insulating char and burn at a slow rate thereafter.

 

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 our remaining forests. Laminated wood products facilitate the use of smaller trees, thus allowing some virgin timber to remain.

 

DO YOU WANT MORE THAN WHAT YOU PAID FOR?

With our superior staff and quality control experts you are guaranteed the best workmanship in the industry.

If you answered yes to any of these questions and have a need for a heavy timber roof system, please stop in or call one of Rigidply's sales people today. All of our heavy timber trusses are quoted on an individual basis.
