Site Visit to Eastland Truss and Timber

Eastland has been manufacturing in Port Macquarie since 1988 and have designed and supplied timber frames and trusses and associated products. Six years ago, they began manufacturing steel frames and trusses and are the only manufacturer of these products between Newcastle and the Gold Coast.

With the change in architectural designs and large open living areas, structural steel was increasingly becoming a requirement, so in 2016 Eastland commenced structural steel fabrication to work together as a complete package with their frames and trusses.

Most recently Eastland introduced 3 innovative products; cassette floor systems, Cassette rafter roofs and posi joists. The cassette floor systems provide faster install, greater quality control, spans up to 10 metres, reduced cut and fill and reduced working at height risks by installing complete upper storey cassettes from below. The posi joists are considerably lighter than solid timber joists, can provide larger spans and keep projects within height restrictions. They have an “open web” design which provides excellent access for services like plumbing, electrical, heating and air conditioning without the need to modify the joist.

Following the site tour a networking dinner will be held at Chow Haus, 124 Horton Street Port Macquarie - cost at attendees own care.
