Converted an original design using traditional attic trusses into a version incorporating Posi-Joists. Manufactured off-site, the posi-attic solution was then delivered to site fully ready to be craned into position, supported by design drawings detailing exactly where each posi-attic truss was to be positioned.
The traditional configuration of attic trusses sees solid structural timber members used. However, in the case of posi-attics the bottom chords are replaced with Posi-Joists, i.e. a combination of the strength of a steel web with the light weight of timber flanges. With their superior spanning capabilities, Posi-Joists facilitate better design freedom, and are ideal for large room in the roof applications. The strength of a Posi-Joist floor provides increased living space within an attic, thereby delivering maximum value to the homeowner. When it comes to the installation of pipework, services and in particular mechanical ventilation with heat recovery systems, posi-attics offer unparalleled ease of access.
