Posi-STRUT® - Posi-PLUS®

Posi-tively the Best Way to Build Plus

If you are looking for a more economical and easier way to construct long span floor, rafters or purlin systems then Gang-Nail’s Posi-STRUT® or Posi-PLUS® open web truss system is for you.

This feature alone greatly reduces construction time and costs, and allows you to get your project to completion much faster.

And, the time and cost savings don’t end there. Because Posi-STRUT® trusses are 50% lighter than conventional solid timber joists, handling is much faster and easier. They are also manufactured to meet the requirements of your job, so there is no on-site trimming required.

Because Posi-STRUT® trusses use 70 or 90mm chords, they do not require temporary bracing and floor and ceiling materials can be joined at each truss without doubling up floor joists or using packers.

Posi-STRUT® also allows you a greater degree of design flexibility. They are strong enough to allow clear spans of more than seven metres, so you can achieve large internal spaces.

Posi-STRUT® open web trusses are based on a unique "V" shaped steel web with integral teeth, which, when used with timber chords, forms long, strong, parallel chord trusses. This means you enjoy the strength of steel, together with the easy fixing and handling of timber.

Posi-STRUT® trusses unique open web design means you can duct services like plumbing, electrical and air conditioning between the top and bottom chord, with no need for drilling, notching or construction of extensive bulkheads.
