Design and manufacturing of finished roof trusses for the construction market.
The timber in every other roof truss in the UK comes from Vida. At our plant in Borgstena we manufacture structural timber for roof trusses for several markets, and also structural timber for our own design and production of finished roof trusses, customised for the construction industry in southern Sweden. The roof trusses are CE marked and approved by SP (the Swedish Research and Testing Institute – RISE).
Every roof truss is unique
Vida manufactures roof trusses in a traditional way, using high pressure and nail plates to press the timber together. Every roof truss is unique which is why a new set-up has to be performed each time a new type is commenced. We use laser projectors to ensure measurement accuracy when we set up and build roof trusses.
Our production control is SP certified (Swedish Research and Testing Institute – RISE).
