Feature Trusses

Feature Trusses

At Donaldson’s we manufacture beautifully crafted timber feature trusses. Our feature trusses are mostly produced using Glulam, Kerto LVL or Douglas Fir.

imageWe can also source any type of timber you need for your project. In addition to the choice of timber for your feature trusses you have the option of exposed or discreet connection joints.

Feature trusses are particularly eye catching above entrances or below vaulted ceilings in retail, leisure, office or residential buildings. Moreover feature trusses create an open and spacious feel to any room, and anytype of timber can be chosen to suit the architectural character of the property.

We can deliver feature trusses pre-assembled, or alternatively as individual loose components ready to assemble, in order to minimise delivery costs to suit any project size or location in mainland UK.

Kingussie Courthouse

DTE recently designed and supplied the roof system for the renovation project at Kingussie Courthouse. The roof system was comprised of standard roof trusses, glulaminated roof frames and columns.
