Prefabricated and insulated offsite, roof panels provide an easy-to-install, low maintenance roofing option which offers superior thermal performance.
Cross Laminated Timber
A structural two-way spanning solid wood panel product that can be used to form roofs as well as floors and shear walls. It is produced by stacking a number of layers of timber, known as lamellas, at 90º to the layer below and subsequently glued to create panels of up to 24m in length and 2,950mm in width, which can encompass between three and seven layers.

Structural Insulated Panels
An advanced method of construction, exploiting composite panel techniques - delivering excellent structural and thermal characteristics in one system. SIPS have two parallel faces - usually Oriented Strand Board - sandwiching a rigid core of Polyurethane foam. The result is a lightweight system which is quick to erect and free from the complications surrounding compression shrinkage and thermal bridging, that is often associated with other forms of construction. Delivering rapid and robust energy efﬁcient buildings, with superior insulation, structural strength and airtightness - SIP systems are used for walls, roofs and ﬂoors.
Using SIPS technology for residential applications will reduce build programmes enabling houses to be completed much faster than conventional building methods. If the house design facilitates habitable living space in the roof zone – then SIPS are a fantastic solution, as they do not require roof trusses, ensuring maximum space availability, whilst providing superb thermal performance and limited air leakage.

Providing a structural frame for roof support, delivering a flexible, practical, simple-to-erect engineered solution - timber roof trusses structural framework are designed to bridge the space above a room and to provide support for a roof. Trusses usually occur at regular intervals, linked by longitudinal timbers such as purlins.
Spandrel Panels are structural timber frame panels made to the profile of the roof, forming the party and/or gable walls.
