Queen Post Truss

The queen post truss uses two supporting vertical beams and a triangle shape to create the structure. The two posts create a bond that offers support and can be used to cover large amounts of space, such as in roofs or ceilings. A customized queen post truss from Yellowstone Timber Frame can add unique aesthetic elements to your home’s interior and exterior design.

What is Queen Post Truss?

A queen post truss is a triangle or arch frame that is mainly used to support roofing. Two beams are connected between the rafters and tie beams. The two posts are kept in place using tension that keep the structure stable. The straining beam helps balance the top ends of the vertical queen posts. While a king post truss only has one central post, the two posts of a queen truss offer open space and a stylish design.

What Is A Queen Post Truss Used For?

A Queen Post Truss can support wider structures than a king post truss. Queen Post Trusses generally are used to stabilize a pitched roof.
