Steel trusses are used in conjunction with cold rolled purlins offer a very competitive option to traditional timber trusses. Spans of more than 40 metres are achievable and our steel trusses span without the need for intermediate support columns.
MLB Steel can also customise the finish of long span lattice beams. All Metsec lattice beams are supplied shot blasted and factory finished with a Zinc Phosphate primer as standard.
Other painted finishes, including any standard RAL colour, are available upon request. This feature is particularly important if it is desired to leave the lattice members exposed as part of a ‘feature’ internal roof structure.
A hot-dipped galvanised finish is also available. This is recommended for cold roofs and roofs with limited access or exposed locations.
Our lattice beams are designed bespoke for your project and can be fabricated to suit the following applications,
Pitched trusses are suitable for all types of duo-pitch roof construction and can be used with most external finishes from lightweight metal sheeting through to heavier constructions with tiles on battens or decking
Curved trusses can provide an aesthetically enhanced roof profile. When used with a standing seam roof this type of construction is easy to detail and install giving a very low maintenance roof.
Tapered trusses are suitable for all types of mono-pitch roof construction. They can be used with most external finishes from lightweight metal sheeting through to heavier constructions with tiles on battens or decking.
