ADVISE & FAQs

Q. Can I support trusses on internal walls?

Q. Why floor trusses over solid joists?
Larger spans, no 1800c/c nogs, accommodation for services, uniform size, long lengths, and an engineer designed product.

Q. Can I use the spans in the truss for storage?
Yes provided Prefab Technology knows your intentions and approximate weight to be stored prior fabrication.

Q. Can I support a solar hot water system on the roof?
Size, capacity and position of the unit to be given to Prefab Technology prior to fabrication.
