Howe Roof Trusses

A Howe truss is formed with one vertical upright in the centre, two diagonal webs either side followed by two further vertical uprights. The combination of diagonal and vertical uprights means that the weight loading is distributed differently to many other truss shapes with solely diagonally placed timbers.

Howe Trusses are most used as girder trusses so have the majority of the weight hanging from their bottom chord. It is possible to add in more uprights as well as make these uprights deeper in thickness so that a larger span can be achieved.
