Loft ladders solutions for a truss roof

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.

Oakmeadow School

Oakmeadow School

Troldtekt A/S

Oakmeadow Primary School is one of the first Passivhaus primary schools in the UK. Designed by Architype architects, the school has a lightweight, super insulated timber frame to achieve Passivhaus airtightness, with a simplified load bearing stud wall, wrapped by an additional layer of insulation created by Larson trusses. A major contribution to the comfort of the occupants is the use of Troldtekt ceiling tiles in both classrooms and the sports hall. The tiles not only reduce reverberation time but also offer high performance acoustic absorption in areas, such as the teaching areas which need to be calm, studious & healthy.

School Roof Receives Much Needed Fire Protection and Waterproofing

IKO PLC

Walker Primary School was opened in 1953 as a one-form entry primary school with seven classes. Over the years, due to its popularity, it has grown and new buildings have been added. Due to the structural design of the building, the roof trusses once exposed meant that the roof changed from one roof to several individual roofs with their own drainage and design issues which meant that each roof had to give its own tapered scheme for each area, which in some cases had to work in tandem with the abutting roof it was next to.
Posi-Rafters - the ideal solution

Posi-Rafters - the ideal solution

MiTek Industries Ltd

DWB Hull, a licensed MiTek roof truss and Posi-Joist manufacturer, recently supplied specially designed Posi-Rafters to form the roof for a large domestic extension. Bespoke end details were incorporated into the Posi-Rafter design to make installation straightforward and to provide solid bearings on to the steel beams and walls. The build had two steel ridge purlins and a central steel at ceiling level, forming a large vaulted ceiling internally. Posi-Rafters were the ideal choice, with plated end blocks sitting directly on to the steel beams with no need for hangers.

Fabric Architecture Solutions Ltd

Tensile Canopy:Just a stone’s throw from the Etihad Stadium, home to Man City Football Club, Manchester Metrolink station is following the growing trend for using fabric as a building medium to provide creative lighting and shelter for passengers.The Challenge:Shelter and lighting were the main criteria for designing the lozenge-shaped tensile fabric platform canopies. DEK Architects’ vision for 2 ‘flying saucer’ like structures illuminating the platform, needed to comply with rail safety regulations as well as provide ambient and practical lighting for passengers. The light source had to be contained within the fabric structures to prevent night glare, which could distract train drivers. Internal drainage to catch water run-off, was also crucial to maintaining the visual impact of the platform shelter.The Solution:Fabric Architecture designed and engineered the 1000m2 structure in house, allowing crucial loading information for the foundations to be given to the main contractor at a very early stage of the project. By constructing a series of bow trusses, the fabric was applied to the upper and lower chords, terminating in a ring beam that doubled up as a structural gutter. This allowed internal rainwater drainage and avoided unsightly drainpipes.
