The Irish Standard for timber trusses - its Preparation and Implementation

The use of timber roof trusses has, during the past few years, become widespread in housing construction in Ireland. This paper discusses the position of timber in the building industry, and sets out the criteria used in drafting the Irish Standard for trusses. Also discussed is the approach adopted for controlling manufacture to the requirements of the standard. N.V. Torpey
