How we build our Steel Trusses
All of our trusses are built with high quality American steel. Precision jig fitting tables are used in manufacturing all of our steel trusses to eliminate even the smallest variations to guarantee you a precise, easy to erect truss.
Each truss is 100% pre-welded and pre-punched at our factory, even the clips for the 2 x 6 purlins and 2 x 4 girts are pre-welded to greatly cut down on your valuable erection time. Only after all of these steps have been completed, then the finished truss is taken and completely submerged twice in a rust proof coating to insure your building truss a long maintenance-free life. All our trusses are backed by a 50 year warranty on materials and workmanship.
Rigid Frame truss available with bay spacing sod 15′ through 30’ and widths up through 225′ other spacing and widths available.
