Roof Trusses

Simple, fast, lightweight trusses.

Trusses can be produced in both in-plane and back-to-back configuration. Howick’s dedicated FRAMA™ 4200 truss system makes the production of lightweight steel trusses simple and fast. The single section components allow the entire truss to be produced from a single machine as needed. Howick’s rivet unique system acts as both a fixing and a spacer, as well as providing a connection point for bolts and other connections.

Advantages of a Truss System

  • Lightweight and dimensionally accurate
  • Fits standard brackets and ties
  • Can be doubled up for longer spans
  • Riveted joint allows for bolted attachments
  • Howick's rivet is equivalent to 5 standard screws
  • The triple section connection (left) reduces the number of fixings and also increases the capacity of the truss.
  • Truss spans of 18m are achievable in 0.95mm material dependent on local load requirements. Longer truss spans are available using the dedicated FRAMA™ 4200 system with thinner materials than the framing optimized machines.
  • The Howick truss system is supported by a range of design packages allowing the design of the truss structures.
