Garage Bolted Trusses

Vicbeam design and construct

Vicbeam were contracted to design and construct a bolted truss roof comprising of two king post trusses, a truncated truss and a ridge beam with supporting rafters.

It was requested that the steel plates be rusted. Using corten steel and a special liquid formula, we sped up the rusting process over 5 days to achieve the desired look.

It is not often that Vicbeam do installations but this was an exception.
