Roof trusses and engineered floor systems.
Wood trusses are widely used in single- and multi-family residential, institutional, agricultural and commercial construction. A truss is a structural frame relying on a triangular arrangement of webs and chords to transfer loads to reaction points. This arrangement gives them high strength- to-weight ratios, which permit longer spans than conventional framing, and offers greater flexibility in floor plan layouts. They can be designed in almost any shape or size, restricted only by manufacturing capabilities, shipping limitations and handling considerations. Wood trusses can be used to build in attic space, as well as coffered and cathedral ceilings. Light frame wood trusses are prefabricated by pressing galvanized steel truss plates into wood members that are pre-cut and assembled.
