Truss clips are metal components designed to securely fix trusses to wall plates to resist wind uplift on the truss and avoid any damage to the truss caused by skew nailing. The calculations we provide that you are able to use to pass Building regulations account for the use of truss clips.
Last week saw the end of Breast Cancer Awareness month. As part of this year’s Wear It Pink Day event, the whole MRT gang got involved on 18th October where we managed to raise a fantastic £100.66 in total! Now amongst just 25 of us in the factory and office all together, I don’t think that’s too shabby an effort!
This week we announced the winner of our 42nd Birthday giveaway over on our Facebook page – Congratulations again to Nichola Hilton on winning your Leica Disto laser measure worth over £300. We’re looking forward to meeting with Nichola next week to deliver her prize in Llandudno – if it’s nice weather we could always pop by the promenade to pick up an ice cream for the journey home! The competition was well received by many and from that we didn’t feel like ending our celebrations there. We wanted to do something where more of our customers could benefit – after all it’s not every day you celebrate turning 42!

Our prize also includes a free site measure for your next project so be sure to book it in with us when you’re ready.
On Wednesday we celebrated (a day early) Karen’s 50th Birthday. Now there’s a lot we could say about this marvellous lady – all good things of course! After 34 years of working with the company she really is part of the furniture at Minera Roof Trusses and we would be lost without her.
When considering the job that our prefabricated trusses do and the ease of their installation it can be easy to overlook the important responsibility that bracing undertakes. Bracing ensures that trussed rafters maintain a rigid, secure and stable roof structure. If the bracing provided is not used entirely, positioned incorrectly or not securely fixed, it can result in a distortion or failure of individual trusses or in a worst case scenario - the whole roof so it’s safe to say they’re pretty important!
We are very excited to be celebrating our birthday this month (42 years young) and we are feeling generous so we are giving away a LEICA DISTO D510 LASER MEASURE worth over £300!

A frequent question that we are asked at Minera Roof Trusses is, “Can I drill holes in my trusses/ joists?” Most commonly, we’re asked this for plumbing and electrical reasons such as fitting pipes and wiring through the trusses after the holes have already been drilled and it has been picked up by a building inspector on site.
Last weekend the Minera Roof Trusses clan made their annual staff trip to Chester Races and my goodness did we and the other 20,000 attendees pick a HOT day for it! After the long spell of wet and miserable weather we’ve endured in Minera recently, I think it’s fair to say temperatures reaching 26 degrees was a stark contrast!
