Ceiling joists are not in affect "trusses" Ceiling joists are part of the conventional method of building timber roofs.
The ceiling joist hence its name, supports the ceiling lining boards.
Any ceiling that has a large area or clear spans are normally held above them selves by means of a ceiling hanger or hanging beam.
In some cases bulk heads are built beneath the ceiling joist to support it from sagging. Strutting beams within the roof space can also support ceiling joists. generally any ceiling span that is more than 2.1m in width requires middle support. Most houses with conventional roofing have centre support above or below the ceiling line. if you need to remove a wall from underneath a conventional roof. The ceiling joists will need to be re supported buy means of a bulk head or a hanger beam installed within the roof space. The most common method for this is a bulk head, as it can be very difficult installing a hanger beam inside an already built roof structure.
