Week 3 : Beams & Joists
Updated: Feb 12, 2020
As week three commences the roof structure begins to take up the time of Space Craft NZ’s talented tradies. This framing supports the roof and ensures you remain dry on a rainy day.
The ridge beam is a crucial part of the structure and bears the roof. Rafters will be fixed along the ridge-line. This beam makes the apex of the roof.
We use a mixture of 240mm x 90xx SG8 and CHH 300 x 90 HY joists. The product is versatile, stronger and much lighter than equivalent with equal strength capacity.
