STEEL TRUSSES

CONSTRUCTION GRADE STEEL TRUSSES

Our angle iron steel trusses are manufactured by certified welders and are engineered to meet Alabama and Florida requirements of a 140-mph wind load and a 20 lbs. per square foot snow load when set on 6 x 6 posts at 10-foot centers.  We use 2 x 2 x 3/16 angle for both the top and bottom cords with 1 x 1 x 1/8 webbing.

 

These trusses are intended for agricultural use. If permitting is needed for your project, please call to discuss our engineered trusses before purchase.

Angle iron trusses are available in gable trusses up to 50', lean-to trusses up to 30' and header trusses up to 24'.

Tubing trusses boast a live load rating of 20lbs/sq ft. and a snow load rating of 10lbs/sq ft and an ultimate wind speed rating of 115 mph with a maximum span of 12' OC between posts.
