Engineered rafters the alternative timber roof system

Posi-Rafters are parallel chord trusses, plated together with Posi-Strut metal webs. With Posi-Joist floor joists, designed and manufactured offsite and tailored to the requirements of each individual project.
The Posi-Rafter solution will soon be introduced to the South African market and is suitable for both pitched roofs and flat roofs. Stronger than solid timber rafters, therefore can span further and require less internal support.


A wide range of depths and end details provide great flexibility in their application, and the need for expensive hangers and metalwork can be eliminated through clever detailing by our skilled manufacturers.
The open web construction allows for services and utilities to be easily routed through the rafters with no need for cutting, drilling or battening out. Posi-Rafters can also offer greater thermal U values than solid timber rafters.
