A solid timber feature truss can make a real impact on a modern design
Used to create a fully open roof area, which allows light in and an airy atmosphere, the exposed heavy timbers catch the eye, which makes feature trusses ideal for a reception area, hall or even a home - anywhere people can congregate, admire and comment on their character.
Historically, Oak has been used in truss manufacture for centuries. As the oak dries, cracks or 'shakes' appear to create a weathered look, making oak the ideal choice to emulate a medieval style or blend into an existing older property
Known for its superior strength-to-weight ratio, high availability and minimal shirnk douglas fir is used extensively in construction. Its has a reddish heartwood and paler outer sapwood, and the contrast between the two offers a desirable effect
Characterized by its light-red finish, Redwood is frequently used to make furniture, but works equally well as a large feature truss. It possesses a moderate strength allowing it to serve as a feature only, not as a structural component.
A whole host of other timbers are available, so if you have a specific one in mind, let us know
