The Scissor truss shape has a sloping bottom chord, These can provide extra headroom . The difference between the top and bottom pitch is generally 15 degrees.

The Modified Scissor truss shape shares the same detail as the Scissor truss but introduces a flat section to the ceiling.


The Mono truss can be used in several situations ranging from lean to roofs, hipped end roofs, spanning onto fire walls or used back to back onto a central corridor wall.



The Hip Truss shape is most commonly used in the hipped roof construction but can also be used for roofs where a flat roof is required or for reduction in height for planning requirement.

The Lattice Truss shape can be used in various situations. For infilling large attic sections around dormers and stairs or for flat roofs.
