A unique and innovative truss removal system
What is ecotrus and how do I get it?
“REVOLUTIONISING THE LOFT CONVERSION INDUSTRY”
The ecoTRUS system has now enabled us to complete loft conversions faster, cheaper and stronger than they have ever been before!
ecoTRUS enables loft spaces to be maximised. All of the space, right to the edges, whilst maximum head height is retained, all with no heavy RSJ’s. We only use light guage galvanised steel sections in panel form, constructed with seamless laser precision and installed in a matter of days.
We have developed varying options for installation depending on whether you’re a home owner, architect, builder or social housing sector.
of What is a truss loft?
Trussed lofts are a fairly modern roof design. They utilise a frame made up of triangles to support the roof where there is no wall to support the weight.
Due to the nature of the truss frame, it is a large undertaking to ensure the roof load weight is redistributed correctly. This involves a site visit from a structural engineer to ensure the load calculations of the roof are distributed evenly at all contact points. This procedure requires building control inspection and certification, something we take care of throughout the project.
Because of this, most loft conversion companies charge an excessive amount more to cover the extra workload. This is what makes the ecoTRUS system beneficial in every single way because the system works perfectly with every type of loft.

THREE DISTINCT PHASES…ONE EASY CHOICE!
Ecoloft understand that many of our customers have access to their own trusted tradesmen, so we’ve built an approach that gives you complete control over how much work you ask us to do. If you only want us to supply the product and certification, no problem! Choose Phase 1 and you can complete the rest.
If you would like us to complete the structure and appoint the contractors to complete your build choose Phase 3 and we would be delighted to do so! If you think you’re somewhere in between, then Phase 2 will be right for you.
The EcoTrus system now opens the opportunity for structural changes to be completed with ease. This means that we can pass those savings on to you and deliver a much stronger and more efficient structure.
Please note: We currently don’t do bathroom installs, tiling, carpets or paint.
