TRA reaches out to regional roofers

A series of
free regional events for the roofing and housebuilding industries is starting
this month, focusing on the latest advice on Brexit, the CE marking of
construction products post-Brexit, and new technical guidance on the
manufacture of trussed rafters, spandrel and gable panels and related

suppliers and buyers of trussed rafters and engineered joists can join the
meetings organised by the Trussed Rafter Association (TRA) in Leeds (3 October), Coventry (31 October) and
Swindon (21 November).

Nick Boulton,
chief executive of the TRA says:

“There are
major developments happening in the sector this autumn and it is important to
communicate that to the industry. If the UK leaves the EU without a deal on 31
October or any future date, then manufacturers also need to be aware that
certain changes will be legally necessary in the CE marking of construction
products including trussed rafters and metal web joists.

holding these events around the country, we hope to update everyone on how to
deal with these changes, as well as on TRA activities and how we can help add
value to trussed rafter and metal web joists sales. It is also a great
opportunity to network with others in the industry and to learn from them too.”

The events
will include information on the TRA’s latest technical guidance and
publications, including its guides on gable panels and
spandrel panels.

The meetings
are open to all businesses in the sector, including members and non-members of
the TRA. To find out more about the TRA and the regional events go to:
