Roof Strut/Prop

Roof Frame Strut

A strut is a structural component of a roof truss and is an integral part of the load bearing, designed to resist longitudinal compression. Struts provide outwards-facing support in their lengthwise direction, which can be used to keep two other components separate, performing the opposite function of a tie.
