Stylish elements such as cathedral, vault, tray, and barrel ceilings make decorative design a matter of imagination. These styles are made possible using engineered trusses.
Created with scissor trusses, low-sloped cathedral ceilings bring a sense of openness, even grandeur, to a home.
Sloping upward from one side, vaulted ceilings add drama to otherwise ordinary rooms.
Barrel trusses make it possible to have a rounded cove ceiling, giving architectural interest to the room.
ENGINEERED FOR ATMOSPHERE
A high ceiling is uplifting and makes a small room feel more spacious. A sloped ceiling forces the eye upwards, emphasizing a light and open atmosphere.
Vertical Tray Ceiling
The vertical tray ceiling is often framed with one or more stepped square edges going from the wall to the flat ceiling.
The tray ceiling has a flat center with sides sloping in from the walls, adding dramatic effect to any space.
With flat bottom chords, common trusses provide cost effective solutions for most residential homes.
THE SKY'S THE LIMIT
Engineered trusses eliminates the need for interior load-bearing walls. This gives an architect or designer great flexibility in creating dramatic wall and ceiling shapes that can be entirely decorative.
