e-struts offer minimum material and time wastage when used with e-purlins in the fabrication of stick roofs. Engineered e-struts are highly consistent in their performance and dimensional stability. They have superior compressive strength which resists the dynamic loads associated with high wind coastal conditions. e-struts are comparatively lighter than timber products, making them safer to handle.
- Engineered for straightness and consistent performance
- Greater length = greater design flexibility
- High strength yet lighter and safer to handle
- Chamfered edges for safer and more comfortable handling
- Manufactured from 100% plantation timber
- Manufactured and properties evaluated in accordance with AS/NZS4357 series - Structural laminated veneer lumber totally compatible for engineering design in accordance with AS1720.1:2010 - Timber structures, Part 1: Design methods
- Suitable for both sheet metal and tile leaf cladding at maximum strut length of 4.5m
- JD4 joint group – for nails, bolts and screws e-strut specification
e-strut span tables are available below with greater lengths providing greater design availability.
|Sheet Roof||Tile Roof||Strut Length|
|Maximum strut spacing 2.1m||Maximum strut spacing 1.8m||4.5 maximum for both sheet and tile root|
|Maximum Supported roof area 7.0m2||Maximum supported roof area 5.4m2|
All fixings restraints to be installed in accordance with AS1684.2:2010
