Truss Manufacture

WJ Components are an established manufacturer of holiday home roof trusses.  Since our beginnings in 2007 we have become skilled in manufacturing and delivering bespoke specifications in line with our customers’ requirements.  Through the use of the latest technology and hydraulic nail press equipment, we are able to produce large quantities of roof trusses in narrow timescales.  It is essential that our products arrive with our customers on time and on specification to ensure holiday home production runs smoothly.  We have the capability to manufacture in excess of 2000 roof trusses each week of varying configurations and sizes.

The manufacturing process begins with our dedicated team of CAD designers, who create drawings in line with required specifications.  We manufacture roof trusses using stress graded timber, which allows snow loadings to be calculated, as detailed in British Standard BS 1647.  Where the use of non-stress graded timber is specified, customers need to undertake their own snow load-bearing tests to establish overall roof integrity.

Our trusses are typically made from softwood, and can be delivered flat or vaulted. Once a batch is complete, we distribute them on our own fleet of HGV vehicles.

Customers also have the choice to apply preservative timber treatments in accordance with British Standard BS 8417 to a range of Use Class systems. See Preservative Treatments
