King Post Oak Truss

Precision Perfect Trusses

What is a King Post truss?

A King Post truss embodies the essence of traditional timber trusses. This type of truss has been used for hundreds of years to support roofs.

Featuring a triangular structure formed by a base tie beam and two sloping rafters, the central post adds support from the apex to the tie beam’s centre.

Optionally, two additional braces connect the base of the king post to the rafters’ centre, enhancing its strength. With a beautifully simple design, king trusses offer remarkable durability and an abundance of natural light for your space.

Where are King Post trusses used?

Typically, these types of trusses are used for spans of anything up to 20 feet, but with additional support and design work can be used for longer spans.

King Post trusses are often used in barns and churches, as well as other large buildings. Modern-day designs, however, have started to bring king trusses into smaller structures like sheds, garages and pergolas to create a unique appearance.

The custom nature of each truss build means that we can be flexible with the trusses we create. We specialise in the manufacturing of bespoke oak trusses spanning up to 11 meters.

Bespoke section sizes are also available with standard sizes including 140×140 up to 240×240.
