A timber support for your floor, running under the floorboards. Often supported by beams.
Baseplates provide support and stability for steel columns built off foundations.
Unlike Queen Post trusses, these have a single central post in the middle of the truss.
Steel beams provide localised support, and are often used when remodelling houses.
Flitch Beams utilise both timber and steel to provide extra strength and support.
Traditional cut roofs are made from rafters and joists instead of pre-manufactured trusses.
Rafters are a series of sloping timber beams that support the roof deck.
Windposts are steel supports that are inserted into brick and blockwork to provide support.
Portal frames are made from steel and create wide and low spaces, such as warehouses.
Steel columns provide vertical support and bear weight from higher up.
Purlins are horizontal beams that help to support the roof and are supported by rafters.
Running out of space? A loft conversion can give you the extra accommodation you need.
When two steel beams span a distance, a splice connection is used to connect them together
A screw/bolt connection is used to connect two pieces of timber together usually in a truss or timber frame.
Steel frames are stronger than timber ones and can support higher loads and more storeys.
