Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

North timber specialist bounces into new market

A local designer, manufacturer and supplier of roof trusses and other timber products has a spring in its step after completing work on a brand new trampoline park.

Fencehouse Truss Company, based in Houghton le Spring, Tyne and Wear, helped create Morecambe’s first ever such attraction, which opened this week, by making and supplying the flat trusses that form the podium for the floor structure of the park.

Jump Rush, which has more than 100 bounce zone trampolines, including both wall and floor beds, opened to the public on Monday (July 24th), and ensures 360 degree visibility of all jumping zones for supervising parents.

The £2.5 million facility was built using Fencehouse Truss Company’s pre-fabricated timber trusses, and the project was the first of its kind for the firm, which specialises in supplying roof trusses, ecojoists, spandrel panels and timber frames for self-build homes, extensions, housing developments and loft conversions.

Steven Harris, co-director of Fencehouse Truss Company said: “It was fantastic to be involved in something so different for us, and to have the opportunity to help shape such a great community facility. We’re thrilled to have been a part of it.”

Solomon Reader is the co-owner of Jump Rush. He added: “We’re beyond pleased with the workmanship of Fencehouse Truss Company, whose timely delivery allowed us to bring this exciting new family attraction to the town of Morecambe on schedule, and just in time for the start of the school summer holidays.

“All around us we are seeing regeneration and investment in this beautiful seaside resort and it’s great to have worked with reliable and quality suppliers such as Fencehouse Truss Company, who’ve helped us to contribute with the creation of more than 40 jobs.”
