Vela SBS’s lightweight steel U-Truss roofing solution has been developed specifically for large scale housing projects, schools and light industrial buildings. The U-Truss roofing solution is cost effective as it can be transported long distances in flat-pack format, it is simple to assemble as no jigs are required and is easy to erect on site.

U-Truss Design & Engineering Solution

  • Fully integrated CAD/CAM system links the intuitive design software to the roll-formers
  • The in-built structural analysis program takes all loads into account
  • Each roof design is signed off by an independent structural engineer

U-Truss Transport

  • Chords and webs are multi-stacked in flat-pack format, substantially reducing transport costs

U-Truss Assembly

  • The pre-punched components allow for on-site assembly
  • A simple bolted connection detail negates the need for a jig
  • Local labour can be trained to assemble the trusses

U-Truss Site Erection

  • The U-Truss is lightweight and easy to handle, negating the need for large crews on site
  • The unique shape of the truss chord gives the U-Truss incredible strength in all orientations
  • Trusses are spaced at a maximum of 1250mm centres under concrete roof tile load
  • Fewer trusses = faster erection = costing savings

U-Truss Timber Sprockets

  • Timber sprockets can be fitted into Vela’s U-Truss if there is a requirement for exposed timber eaves

On-site Training

  • Vela SBS offers on-site training to local contractors for assembly and erection
  • Vela SBS empowers local communities
