The Frook temporary truss brace and spacer tool by ken jaffers and peter stevens.
The Frook is a reusable, temporary truss brace and spacer tool for use during the erection of roof trusses and is revolutionary in its design concept and application.
Roof Truss installation is one of the most dangerous tasks encountered during the construction of a building. Accidents which occur during the erection of roof trusses are often serious and can involve more than one person. The risk of injury during roof truss erection should be minimised and the Frook is a tool that will help you achieve this.
The Frook is far superior in strength to other common methods used for temporary bracing of roof trusses.
The Frook reduces the risk of injury by eliminating some of the more dangerous situations that arise during the erection of roof trusses. The unique design of the Frook and its ease of use allows for spacing corrections after roof trusses are in place.
Use the Frook truss brace.
Because the Frook can help you in reducing the risk of on-site accidents it is an ideal tool for use in an industry where occupational health and safety issues are increasingly important.
NOTHING COMPARES ON TODAYS MARKET.
Frook's patented technology allows roof truss installers to have the advantage of standing roof trusses on site faster than any other similar method currently being used.
The Frook is simple to use.
Unlike other connectors or temporary braces the Frook can be used with varying timber width and roof truss distance.
Result: Unparalleled time savings.
MORE COST EFFECTIVE
Additionally there are significant cost savings to be gained by using the Frook truss brace because of the substantial reduction of crane time on the job and the elimination of temporary bracing materials and associated preparation works.
When the framework is in place and secure, you simply remove the Frooks and take them to the next job.
The Frook comes in two standard sizes, 600mm and 900mm. The built in adjustment mechanisms and combination use will cater for any spacing from 330 mm to 950mm.
The inventors of The Frook temporary truss brace and spacer tool,Ken Jaffers and Peter Stevens have their own website and you can contact them there.
I think the guys have a good and useful product here.
I agree with the points that they make about safety, ease of use and maybe the cost savings, but what would sell this system to me is the ability to set the spacings beforehand so that consistency and accuracy is guaranteed.
There's no doubt also the the use of odds and sods of timber for temporary bracing is a real pain in the bum. The overhanging ends get in the way of the next trusses to be fixed.
Best of luck with it Ken and Peter!

There is no charge for this and also I want it to be very clear to my readers that I don't get or ask for any money from these guys. I am doing it as a service for my readers, but...if one of the inventors happens to get bought out by a multinational company........ well... I hope they remember who their mates are, eh:-)

Just in case you have read a few of these pages and you think that my comments are a bit biased in favour of the inventions, well.... you are right. Why would I bother putting something here if I don't think it is any good? There are heaps of websites that promote crap for money if that's what you want.
