WHAT IS STEEL STRUCTURE ROOFING?
Steel structure roofing is a traditional cut roof or truss roof mixed in with a steel structure to support it. For example: The oaks one of our projects we worked on had an ICF Nudura base structure with a steel spider frame to form the basic roof, then infilled with 9x2 to form a traditional pitch and flat cut roof consisting of Velux's and dormers.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A STEEL STRUCTURE ROOFING?
Quick to erect (depending on the roof size and complexity)
No masonry wall required to support structural elements of the roof structure.
Potential to have a more open plan building due to the structural steel desig
WHAT IS THE INSTALLATION PROCESS OF A STEEL STRUCTURE ROOFING?
Ordinarily the main support frame of the roof steel members would be bolted or welded together to create the basic outline of the roof structure; these works will need to be carried out by the steel framing specialist prior to the carpentry works commencing.
The structural engineer will issue all the relevant connection details required where timber members meet steel members and it is critical that these instructions are carried out accurately to each relevant detail to ensure the structural performance of the roof.
There are a variety of ways of designing such work that would dictate the installation process of these works, yet clever design at the earliest stages can reduce works and the time required to carry out these works. Payne Carpentry are always happy to offer valuable input at these stages to help to reduce such.
