The Telebeam system is a innovative new way of organising the conversion of a truss (or trussed rafter) roof into a usable house. Not only will this system of loft conversion give you an added home, or rooms, but it will also add price to your house.
Standard strategies of converting a trussed rafter roof include replacing the ‘W’ sections of trusses with steel joists which ordinarily run amongst load bearing gable walls. New vertical supporting timbers and flooring joists are then run from these metal joists to guidance the existing roof just before the internal trusses is eradicated.
Once the supplemental supports are in position the ‘W’ sections of roof trusses are just about completely eliminated. The roof trusses at the apex are commonly retained in a much shortened point out due to the fact they have to have the new horizontal ceiling joists forming the new flat location of ceiling, as well as the regulation insulation resources.
As you can consider, putting in lengthy metal joists into a roof that is by now ‘full’ of supporting trusses is the trickiest portion. Possibly a area of just one gable conclusion is briefly eliminated to allow the steel to be inserted longitudinally, or locations of the roof tiles are taken off and the metal joists are inserted in sections and then bolted collectively when in put.
The Telebeam procedure does absent with the need to insert significant load-bearing steel joists by retaining the load bearing triangulation, eave to eave, rather than concerning load bearing partitions. With Telebeam only the 3 most affordable rows of roof tiles need to be taken out temporarily. Then the roofing felt is turned again to let the telescopic beams to be slid in together with the existing flooring joists, attaching to the wall plates possibly aspect. As their title indicates, the TeleBeams are telescopic and alter to the span of the building. They do not count on any inside aid and function for any roof pitch.
The vertical stud partitions at the edge of the new space transfer the roof load down on to the Telebeam technique and the authentic horizontal wood joists get the horizontal (spreading) load. The ‘W’ sections of roof trusses are now redundant and most of them can be eliminated, retaining the roof trusses at the apex to have the new ceiling collar as right before. The new flooring can then be mounted immediately to the Telebeam process, insulation can be extra underfloor, among the rafters and in just the new ceiling, and the rafters, ceiling and stud partitions can be boarded about and a plastered end applied.
TeleBeam units are readily available in spans up to 8.4 metres so they are best for virtually any measurement of roof.
Benefits of the TeleBeam technique:
a) Incorporates roof and floor help in a person LABC (Area region building control) accepted program.
b) Minimises loft conversion fees – the TeleBeam procedure fees about £5,000 + vat for a 2/3 bedroom house (the installation is not involved in this figure).
c) Maximises readily available headroom.
d) Obtainable in spans of 5.8, 6.2, 7., 7.8 and 8.4 metres.
e) No supplemental timber floor joists are needed.
f) Beams slide into the roof room by eradicating just three rows of tiles from a person side of the house.
g) Lowered scaffolding/entry prices.
h) Telescopic beams match most structures and roof pitches.
i) No professional installation capabilities or instruments are needed.
j) Effortless to stick to, move-by-phase instructions.OS Holding is professional and client focused building contractors. Offering both domestic & commercial building and refurbishment services throughout Dublin.
