The Pryda Roof Truss Installation Guide is a document to give guidance for the correct handling and installation of truss. It is based on the AS4440-2004 and are a sub-set of the full Australian Standards “Installation of nailplated timber trusses”. Timber roof trusses are engineered and manufactured to an exacting standard which require special handling, erection and bracing techniques. To ensure that the expected performance is achieved, it is imperative that all relevant parties are familiar with the requirements set out in this guide.
New Zealand does not publish this standard and so acknowledges Standards Australia for permission to reproduce some of the drawings and technical content within AS444-2004. Please be aware that because it is an Australian publication not all the products mentioned are stocked in NZ however equivalent products are available.
