A fink roof truss is traditionally the most commonly used truss type, providing a simple, adaptable and cost efficient roofing solution.
The “fink” is a basic webbed truss design that provides the most economical roof solution.
The web members form a ‘W’ to provide a high strength structure with excellent load-carrying capacity. The roof load can be transmitted entirely to support on the wallplates without the requirement for internal support walls.
The fink truss can also be used as a support for other trusses by doubling or trebling the number of plies, i.e. in a “hip” roof.
Due to its design flexibility, the fink truss is the most frequently used truss in roof design. With a large variety of spans up to 14 metres and pitch range from 10° to 60°, the finks truss offers a cost effective and versatile roof solution.
