QUINN TRUSS Roofing Solutions
Engineered timber roof trusses are now used in over 95% of all new housing projects in the UK and are increasingly being used in commercial and industrial projects. Offering the most cost effective roofing option, timber roof trusses have many distinct advantages:
Timber attic trusses combine the speed of erection on site of standard trusses with the open plan nature of the traditional cut roof. Attic trusses can give you several extra rooms in your house for very little extra cost in relation to project as a whole.
Attic trusses offer several major advantages:
A common problem in recent years has been the compatibility of Roof Trusses and Concrete Floor slabs.
At QUINN TRUSS we have overcome this issue through innovative design and re-engineering of the standard timber truss to accommodate concrete floor slabs into any new build project. The Slab Truss passes all loading and stress tolerance testing and provides the same extensive space afforded by a normal Attic Truss, whilst adhering to Building Control and Industry Regulations.

Where there is the need for a rounded roof design, possibly due to planning restrictions or perhaps just to accommodate a customer that wants something different from the norm, QUINN TRUSS can produce the solution.
Barrel/Bowstring shaped trusses offer the rounded aesthetic, in keeping with the traditional agricultural ‘barn’ look, whilst adhering to all building control requirements and providing a structurally sound roof.
Designs can be tailored to allow for larger void depths to offer more scope for insulation and soundproofing
Moving with the market trend towards Passive structure, QUINN TRUSS have designed a truss solution tailored to accommodate passive house roofs.
Specially engineered supports, adjusted eaves details and rafter depths, allow for a ‘warm roof’. Increased insulation and air tightness are possible using this unique truss design, meaning all criteria are met to achieve a passive house structure
