Forget heavy steel beams and cranes. TeleBeam is the exciting new way of converting lofts. It is the first totally bespoke pre-fabricated system which deals with a wide range of loft conversion applications.
TeleBeam has been primarily designed for the conversion of roof trusses in modern buildings. TeleBeam’s unique load sharing arrangement means it is also ideal for converting lofts in modern timber framed buildings and older style ‘cut’ roofs.
The TeleBeams are incredibly simple and are manufactured from strong but lightweight telescopic aluminium beams. These work alongside the trusses or rafters, providing both support for the new floor load and also the existing roof loads.
Roof trusses work on a load sharing basis where each roof truss supports just a 600mm width of roof load and minimal storage loading. TeleBeam extends this concept further by employing two beams to help carry the additional floor load of a loft conversion and the existing roof loading.
Each TeleBeam comprises three sections: a central box beam (where the floor is created) and two ‘I’ beam outriggers, which telescope to adjust for the ranges in the width of the building.
This makes the beams light and easy to manoeuvre without having to manhandle long or heavy steel beams where access and getting the beams up onto scaffolding may be difficult.
No prior knowledge is required for installation as it is very straightforward and any competent DIYer, small building contractor, carpenter or roofer can fit TeleBeams.
Following a site survey by TeleBeam, detailed instructions and drawings are provided in a step-by-step, easy-to-follow format. To support installers and customers, TeleBeam offers free installation guidance and support at their premises in Wiltshire.
To give customers peace of mind, the TeleBeam system benefits from Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Registered Details approval.
