What are TeleBeams?
A telebeam is a strong, telescopic aluminum beam which provides support for the new floor load and existing roof load.
How Does It Work?
Where roof trusses work on a ‘Load Sharing’ system, TeleBeam extends this concept further by employing two beams to help the truss carry its existing roof load plus the additional floor load as a result of the conversion. This approach minimises loss of headroom. The beams are telescopic and adjust to the span of the building and work for any roof pitch. They span from outside wall to outside wall and do not rely on any internal support.
SkyLofts started using TeleBeams in 2015 as an alternative method to steel beams. As a brand new, and completely individual product – it’s attractive bespoke and completely adaptable system is becoming ever popular in modern properties with roof trusses and a traditional cut roof.
