Our design, engineering and fabrication expertise enables us to create steel roof truss solutions for all types of construction projects in Australia. We have the knowledge and resources to meet all of your roof truss framing requirements, from individual residential buildings to large-scale developments and commercial projects.
Using quality steel, the fabrication process for all of the roof truss frames we supply is completed at our Melbourne factory, with high-precision roll forming machines. Thanks to the strong ribbed C-sections that we use, it is possible for us to create designs incorporating large spans, which do not require additional supporting columns or load-bearing walls.
If you are looking for roof truss specialists who can help you to bring contemporary designs to life, without adding unnecessarily to the complexity of your build, Cortek is the company you need to call.
Lab-tested and engineered in accordance with Australian building codes
All of our roof truss sections and connections are tested in an accredited laboratory and are designed and engineered to comply with Australian building codes and guidelines. Whether you are undertaking a new construction project in a cyclonic or non-cyclonic part of the country, we can provide you with a steel truss solution that meets all of your requirements.
Custom steel roof truss solutions
Whatever the size or type of building you wish to construct, our team can design a roof truss solution that enables you to complete your project on time, and within the budget you have set. Using advanced 3D modelling and design software, we are able to produce detailed layouts and plans for you to evaluate before they are passed through to our fabrication team. As roof truss steel specialists who have worked on many different types of construction projects since 2003, we can produce custom solutions for innovative building designs and more traditional construction styles. We can fabricate steel roof truss framing solutions for all types of roof cladding and architectural themes according to your specifications.
Delivery, assembly and installation
Once we have completed the fabrication of a new steel truss solution, we package it ready for transportation to site. The lightweight nature of our framing means that it is easy to assemble and install but, if you prefer, we can provide you with details of recommended local installers who can complete the necessary work on your behalf.
With no need for any onsite cutting or fabrication work, and weighing up to 40% less than its timber equivalent, a steel roof truss solution is a faster, safer and more convenient alternative for many building applications.

Are steel trusses cheaper than wood?
In terms of initial cost, a steel roof truss solution is generally more expensive than a comparable timber truss but because it will be lighter and easier to assemble on site, it is often the cheapest option in terms of overall cost. For an exact figure you can use to perform your own cost analysis — and please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to request a competitive quote.
What are the advantages of a steel roof truss?
A steel truss will normally be around 40% lighter than an equivalent timber truss. Many construction firms use steel trusses to reduce the dead loads in their building designs and reduce the required onsite assembly time. Because they are lighter, they also help to reduce the risk of injury during the installation phase, making them a popular choice with OHS managers on construction sites in Australia. They are also unaffected by pests or dry rot, making them an excellent option for applications where durability is of prime importance.

How much weight can a steel truss hold?
The load-bearing capacity of a steel truss will depend on the design and specifications to which it is fabricated. If you let us know how much weight you need to support, we can provide you with a roof truss design recommendation that will meet your requirements.
