What Is An Open Web Floor Truss?
A floor truss is a symmetrically designed structural wood member fastened together with metal connector plates to support a given floor load.
Are Floor Trusses Something New?
Timber Tech Truss has been building floor trusses for over 30 Years.
A significant amount of residential multifamily projects in Southern
Alberta are built with floor trusses. The floor truss has become the floor
system of choice in many regions of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Eastern Canada.
What Are Some Of The Advantages Of 4X2 Floor Trusses?
-Floor trusses provide clear spans so interior walls can be moved easily during remodelling or when making additions.
-Floor trusses can conceal mechanical services, leaving a clear plane for ceiling installations. This is ideal for finished rooms in a lower level.
-Reduced sound transmission.
-The use of preassembled components generates less waste at the jobsite. This improves safety and reduces cleanup costs.
-Floor trusses are precision built for instant installation.
-Trusses are a panelized product that do not require modification on site.
-Expenses are accurately controlled because truss costs can be predetermined. On-site losses from short cutting, theft and damage are virtually eliminated.
-Floor Trusses allow for wider spacing.
-The added allowable span to load ratio provides elimination of support beams.
-Greater nailing area (3-1/2”) for sub-flooring.
Is Bracing Required?
A 2" x 6" continuous strongback is used in place of cross bridging. This helps distribute the load to five to seven trusses instead of only two to three trusses as bridging does.
