Floor Trusses

Floor trusses by Structural help you save big money while improving the overall appearance of any building project. Custom designed to support actual specified design loads, our floor trusses reduce installation costs, virtually eliminate callbacks due to drywall cracking, separation, and nail pops caused by shrinking floor joists and cut additional costs by eliminating interior footings, headers, girders and lolly columns.

Our floor trusses also eliminate the need for bulkheads by allowing HVAC, plumbing, and electrical lines to easily pass through open webs. Their long, clear spans provide the opportunity to increase room size at no additional cost, and they will not become scarce as the availability of large dimension lumber decreases.

Precision fabricated from only the finest grade kiln-dried, stress-rated lumber, our floor trusses are designed to withstand imposed loads such as cantilevers and concentrated loads – something often expected of, but not provided by conventional floor joists.

Benefits of using floor trusses:

  • Floor Trusses

    The fact that floor trusses are built with 2x4s or 2x3s orientated “flat-wise” means a wide, stable bearing surface that is easier to work on and around.

  • The wide nailing surface provides for easy gluing and quick, accurate attachment of sheathing, reducing squeaks and improving floor performance for the life of the structure.
  • Spacing floor trusses at 19.2″ or 24″ on center maximizes structural efficiency and speed of installation.
  • Stiffness and strength can be designed into the floor truss, creating a more solid floor.
  • Special bearing, cantilever and balcony details are easily built in.
  • Shrinkage, warping, or twisting are minimized, reducing the potential of callbacks to the job site.
  • Long spans and girder truss options reduce the need for immediate bearing walls, beams, columns or footings saving time and construction costs.
  • The open web configuration leaves plenty of room for plumbing, electrical, and mechanical runs.
  • Typical depths for floor trusses are 12″ to 24″ but shallower or deeper configurations are possible.
