Raised tie trusses are used when the internal ceiling height is required to be higher than the wallplate height.
Raised ties are designed to provide a higher ceiling line and more internal room height than the fink, making them the truss choice when requiring vaulted/sloping ceiling effects either for aesthetic purposes or to conform to overall height planning restrictions. Unlike other trusses which are supported on the ceiling tie, raised tie trusses are supported part way up the lower end of the rafters.
Increasing the height of a room without increasing the overall height of the building is becoming ever more popular with developers. By utilising advanced techniques, such as reinforcing the rafters, ETS can design and produce larger spans and higher collar heights than ever, often omitting steel beams from provisional designs, therefore simplifying the supply chain and helping your project stay on schedule.
