A scissor truss has a sloping bottom chord as a means of providing extra headroom. The difference between the top and bottom pitch is usually 12.5 degrees. They are a good alternative to raised tie trusses as they are able to span similar lengths but the timbers don’t need to be as large hence taking up less head height in the room. They’re a good choice for creating a vaulted ceiling effect.
