Scissor Oak Truss

Precision Perfect Trusses

In a scissor truss, the tie beam is completely absent. Instead, it consists of the usual rafters and two large beams that cross towards the top.

These are joined to the rafters which creates a shape similar to an opened pair of scissors. In turn, the structure has great strength, an interesting appearance and greatly increased clearance beneath.

Benefits of using scissor trusses


Scissor trusses have a variety of benefits including aesthetics. Its unusual striking design can add an extra layer to a building. Using a scissor truss can also benefit from a strength and durability point of view because the scissor structure distributes the load evenly.

Scissor trusses allow for more interior volume than other types of trusses because the zigzag shape of the truss creates a vaulted ceiling.
