Loft ladders solutions for a truss roof

Premier Loft Ladders Ltd

Truss roof rafters and ceiling joists are typically spaced either 400mm, 450mm or 600mm apart. Given that the joist is normally 50mm wide, this gives a fairly small opening width for your loft hatch and ladder. However, there are still a wide variety of options to consider. For example, space saving concertina loft ladders, are easy to operate, providing robust and durable access to an attic. Made-to-measure folding wooden loft ladders, such as the new Quadro, are available for widths of 550mm and offer minimal protrusion in the loft space above. Visit our website for more information.

Brimstone ash cladding chosen for passivhaus development

Vastern Timber

As an experienced project manager, Alex has considerable experience of timber frame projects. His design was for a 3000sq-ft house built to passivhaus standards. The design also featured extensive exterior cladding. Sustainability became an increasing focus as the project progressed. It was this focus that led to the use of Brimstone ash as Alex felt uncomfortable specifying alternatives that were sourced and transported vast distances. In total, 3000 linear metres of Brimstone were used . “I like the grain of Brimstone,” explains Alex Clifford. “The alternative I originally considered had straight grain, but I wanted something more patterned and interesting.”

Cedar cladding for Powers House

Vastern Timber

Powers House in Devon features cedar cladding, Brimstone ash decking along with stone walling and a pitched Zinc roof. Camillin Denny Design chose Canadian Red cedar from for the external cladding; specifically 95mm x 20mm boards with half lap detail. For the extensive decking around the building they chose Brimstone ash. As Mark Camillin explains “We’ve used cedar previously because we love the way it looks and the way it gradually fades. We wanted the building to be fully clad and we chose a narrower 95mm half-lap board to give us the texture of the shadow gap."

Cedar cladding, the ideal choice for luxury eco-home in Dorset

Vastern Timber

Fir view is a new-build luxury eco-house set in a wooded area on the Devon Dorset border. Architects Mark Camillin and Liam Denny had a vision for a contemporary design that blended sympathetically with the area of natural beauty within which the plot is set. Getting the exterior facade right was of great importance to them and the authorities and all parties settled on cedar cladding as the ideal option. Mark and Liam decided on vertical halflap cladding and selected our air dried Canadian cedar cladding because of the lack of knots and stability.

Rendered rainscreen remedial for timber frame

SAS Europe Ltd

The lightweight ProWall system replaced the failed render, keeping the traditional rendered look and giving a watertight, breathable facade. The existing render varied from 30mm to 60mm, and was embedded with expanded metal lathing (EML). The repetitve expansion and contraction of the EML had cracked the render around it. After removing the old render ProWall rainscreen was installed. This included new battening, an advanced render carrier board, and ventilation beads under the soffits and at the base.

Hardwood Timber Tiles - Tunbridge Wells

Wallbarn Ltd

This project involved a penthouse with a huge roof terrace. The existing deck was dilapidated and needed complete replacement. The existing decking needed to be lifted, cut up and removed. The terrace was jet-washed and sealed. Using ipe tiles on top of adjustable pedestals keeps the tiles out of standing water and creates space underneath for cables, etc. Rooftop terraces are difficult to access. 500x500mm timber tiles are much easier to manually handle and transport than long plank decking. The tiles aren’t fixed to the pedestals, making them future-proofed.
