MONEY-SAVING AND MEETING INDIVIDUAL NEEDS
Using prefabricated roof trusses produced by our company yields the following benefits:
- lowering investment costs – optimising the use of sawn timber allows to lower truss construction costs; the wooden structure is normally 2-3 times cheaper than a steel one
- the option to create trusses of a span of up to 30 metres between walls without the need of applying intermediate columns and supports
- higher truss manufacturing precision – the trusses are produced on special presses and their precision is counted in millimetres
- the total investment costs is known in advance – production and contract signing is preceded by the structure's comprehensive cost assessment and the investor knows the final cost of the trusses starting from the planning phase (in the case of an execution performed through traditional carpentry we have to deal with only an approximate cost assessment and the total costs results from varying factors such as: sawn timber costs, its transport, waste, the carpenter's labour, wood connectors, impregnates etc.)
- a quick and easy assembly – Along with the structure, the investor receives each time a detailed assembly manual on how to fit ready-made elements into the roof, which allows for a do-it-yourself installation in the case of foregoing our team's help
- a flexible and individualized approach to each structure – gives us the ability to design and perform roofs or structures that meet the client's specified needs
- the trusses are light – the weight of an example truss spanning 12 metres is usually about 70-80 kilograms, which allows to avoid using heavy equipment on the building site and to build lighter foundations and walls
- a much higher resistance, comparing to steel, to the impact of ammonia and urea that appear in places of intense animal production, i.e. poultry houses, pig farms as well as stables, horse riding schools etc.; these gases cause steel corrosion and at the same time impregnate wood in a natural way
- in the case of fires, wooden structures resist damage longer than steel ones; many do not realize that a steel structure does not have to be exposed to direct flames – a high enough temperature is sufficient for steel to exceed its plasticity threshold and to lose any durability
- creating a better indoor microclimate in rooms being used
- the option to produce trusses in which the lower chord serves also as the ceiling's load-bearing structure – which allows to free up additional storage space that can be used, e.g., for storing hay
- the chance to extend the construction period as it is possible to construct the roofing during winter
What kind of structures are trusses worth using for?
- fur farms
- poultry farms
- riding schools
- shelters for agricultural machines
- animal enclosures
- building shades
- and other
When building agricultural structures, due to economical and technological reasons, solutions based on wooden lattice trusses produced by our company are implemented.
Our clients have the option to use our ready-made designs or to commission creating structures meeting their individual needs.
1. Masonry structures
A structure of this type can have a triangular shape or take a scissor-like form when increasing the building's interior height is of great importance to you. The structure is then mounted onto walls constructed in masonry technology or ones consisting of concrete elements.
2. Joined structures – upper part of the wall structure + roof structure – wooden
We recommend this more complex building structure when the facility's type requires setting up a brick wall in its lower part, up to the height of 1,5 or 2 metres; this includes barns, stables and other livestock buildings for large animals, as well as grain or machinery store rooms. An advantage of this type of solution is the fact that the structure is protected by a brick wall in the parts most susceptible to mechanical damage, effects of manure or struts caused by, e.g., storing grain. At the same time, the higher part of the building has a wooden structure up to the requested level that is much cheaper than a brick wall.
In this case we combine the lowest price with large value in use!
3. Houses with a converted loft – designed for storing feed, hay etc.
It is worth to make use of the wooden trusses' prefabrication and put up a truss with a load-bearing structure for the wooden ceiling in place of standard latticed trusses. This way, at a low cost, an additional usable area is created that can serve any desired purpose.
4. Building extensions of existing structures – e.g., cow enclosures
Our structures can also be used as roofing for, e.g., cow enclosures in the case when there is no need to construct an entire building. This is a very cheap solution as the only costs are included in producing the supports and creating the roof structure.
5. Frame structures – constructing the entire building inside our production plant
The cheapest way of constructing buildings is making use of a frame structure. In all cases where protecting the lower part of the wall is not required, this structure fulfils its purpose best and its performance is not worse than that of a traditional wall but the price is incomparably lower!
