At Harlow we have been in the business of timber roof trusses for over 20 years and the business heritage dates back to the 80's, and that expertise brings a level of knowledge and understanding that makes for a smooth & easy experience.

At Harlow we specialise in Truss Roofs which are a flexible, highly-engineered product, that is a cost effective method of Roofing, and our services are all catered for completely in house with the sales, design, timber, manufacture & delivery teams ready to handle your roof truss, attic truss or spandrel panel enquiry for smaller extension or self build projects to large multi site house builders.

Roof Trusses

Trussed rafters (Roof Trusses) are individually designed components made from kiln-dried, strength-graded timber.

These are joined together with steel nail plates and provide a structural framework to support the roof fabric, ceilings and floors.

Our roof trusses are suitable for timber frame, masonry and steel frame building projects with varying levels of complexities (domestic and commercial).

Advantages:

  • Speed of construction allows ‘just-in-time’ delivery to site.
  • Space saving – no on-site storage area required.
  • Prefabricated components mean reduced labour costs.
  • More thermally efficient than aluminium, steel or concrete.
  • Made of timber, the only truly renewable building resource.
  • Low-tech manufacturing process reduces emissions and pollution.
  • Minimal environmental impact from installation.
Attic Truss ‘Room in the Roof’

Attic Trusses are a simple and effective way of providing the structural roof and floor in the same component, offering additional living space without increasing the building footprint, and are individually designed components made from kiln-dried, strength-graded timber.

With the growing demand to optimise land, house builders are increasingly specifying ‘Room in the Roof’ trusses for new build programmes.

Advantages:

  • Quick and easy erection offering cost savings on site.
  • Provides a weather tight shell at an earlier stage.
  • No need for complex, labour intensive site joints.
  • Supplied ready prepared for roof finishes, plasterboard and floor boarding.
  • No restrictions on ground floor layout as trusses can span onto external walls.
  • Specifically designed to accommodate all loads required for an additional room.
  • Factory assembly ensures consistent quality.
Spandrel Panels

A cost-effective alternative to traditional masonry, Spandrel panels are specially designed to separate roof areas between adjoining houses and are individually designed components made from kiln-dried, strength-graded timber.

Made from timber framed panels and clad with plasterboards these can be manufactured to the same roof profile as the trussed rafters and delivered to sites as a package.

Advantages:

  • Offsite manufacture reduces construction time on-site, saving costs.
  • Easy to install.
  • Act as a sound and fire break between properties.
  • Provides a weather tight shell at an early stage.
  • Reduces the need to work at height and the cost of scaffolding.
  • Provides little or no site waste.
