ALL THESE STRUCTURAL
COMPONENTS CAN BE FABRICATED FOR INSTANT INSTALLATION.
The standard truss is the most commonly
AND VALLEY TRUSSES
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 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
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.
DROP TOP CHORD GABLE:
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:
features of drop bottom chord and drop top gables.
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.
The outside fireplace master and
split trusses are used where the fireplace intersects truss span
on the outside wall of house.
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.
MASTER TRUSS SYSTEM
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
HIP TRUSS SYSTEM
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.
