SAVE MONEY: The cost is known in advance, your site erection time is reduced, and losses from job site material shortages are eliminated.
RELIABILITY: Each truss has been individually designed and that design is approved by certified engineers for structual adequacy.
VERSATILITY: Engineered trusses provide more design flexibility than conventional framing. They offer numerous custom design options and present an economical and structurally superior method for rapid erect.
THINGS TO SPECIFY.....
SPAN: the length of the bottom chord.
OVERHANG LENGTH: the horizontal distance from the end of the bottom chord to the bottom edge of the top chord.
QUANTITY: the number of trusses you need can be easily determined as they are usually spaced 24 inches on center (O.C.)
DESIGN LOAD: the sum of the live and dead loads for top and bottom chords, plus the allowable stress increase.
ROOF SLOPE: the vertical rise in inches per 12 inch horizontal run.
