A new and improved website from the trussed rafter industry is now live providing technical support to homebuilders, architects and self builders.
TRA chairman, Jonathan Fellingham, said:
“The new website has made it much easier for anyone interested in trussed rafters, spandrel panels or metal web joists to find what they need whether they’re in the office or out and about.
“The technical advice and downloads section is easy to use for designers, manufacturers and installers of roofing and flooring structures.”
The improved member enquiry function allows housebuilders to search for the product and service they need by the nearest location. The search presents the nearest 10 members along with their credentials and contact details. Online enquiries can be made quickly and files for drawings can be dropped into the enquiry box and sent to selected TRA firms, allowing for builders to get faster quotes.
Technical advice and downloads are categorised by product, and as the website is fully mobile responsive, PDFs can be downloaded in a matter of seconds onto a mobile phone or tablet device.
The website will be regularly updated with relevant news and events. The careers section will illustrate the variety and diversity of available jobs and pathways to developing a career in this sector.
Projects undertaken by members can be found on company profile pages to show trussed rafters being used in various types of buildings.
It is also a simple process to enquire about becoming a member of the TRA with a list of benefits and an easy online application form.
The FAQ section will be regularly updated and any other technical enquiries can be submitted via the website allowing for a tailored response.
