ALL THESE STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS CAN BE FABRICATED FOR INSTANT INSTALLATION.

The standard truss is the most commonly used truss.

GIRDER AND VALLEY TRUSSES

GIRDER TRUSS:

The girder truss is used to eliminate an interior load bearing partition by supporting the flush cut end of the main roof trusses at the intersection of the two roofs.

VALLEY TRUSSES:

Valley trusses are used to form the ridge line and framing between the main and secondary roof structure. Valley trusses may also be used for decorative gables, porches, and many other roof features. Flat top valley trusses are supplied when required for hip roof applications.

STANDARD GABLE:

Provides framing for gable end material from the plate line to the rafter slope placed flush with end of building.

DROP BOTTOM CHORD GABLE:

Bottom chord dropped to lookout height to provide framing for gable end material from soffit line to rafter slope. Used in brick veneer construction and placed flush with outside face of brick.

Used with gable end overhang when roof line extends past gable end and requires support placed flush with end of building.

DOUBLE DROP CHORD GABLE:

Incorporates the features of drop bottom chord and drop top gables.

INSIDE FIREPLACE MASTER AND

The inside fireplace master and split trusses are used where the fireplace intersects the truss span in the middle or inside of the house. A fire place may be placed parallel or perpendicular to the truss.

OUTSIDE FIREPLACE MASTER

The outside fireplace master and split trusses are used where the fireplace intersects truss span on the outside wall of house.

GABLE END FIREPLACE MASTER

The gable end fireplace master and split gable end trusses are used where the fireplace is in the end or gable wall and intersects truss span.

The terminal hip system provides maximum economy in hip roof construction by combining conventional framing techniques with truss rigidity, and maximum clear spans. The girder truss supports the end and side jacks, which form the hip section.

Hip master truss system provides an efficient method of framing complicated hip roofs. Use of common trusses on main span affords clear spans- no bearing partitions required. Hip master truss supports the hip portion of the roof which is framed conventionally, speeds cutting of hip members and eliminates excessive bracing required in conventional framing.

The hip roof affords symmetry of architectural appearance. The eave line extends around all four sides of the building and eliminates the use of gable ends. Economy of construction and factory precision is gained by the mass production of the complex small parts required in the step-down hip system. Parts are universally used on any length or width building.

Step-down trusses are produced in the same size as the standard trusses and gradually decrease in the flat top dimension to form the sloping hip roof line.

The dutch roof gives the architectural appearance and features of both the hip and gable roof. The eave of the roof line continues around all four sides of the building. The small gable end breaks the symmety of a full hip or gable roof.
