A truss is a system of interconnected structural elements where individual parts are connected with welding to behave as a single object which carries a load over a span.

1. What are the truss types ?

The most common use of trusses is in buildings, where support to roofs, the floors and internal loading such as services and suspended ceilings, are readily provided.

Pratt Truss

Warren truss

North light truss

Saw-tooth truss

Fink truss

2. What are the advantages of trusses ?
  • Ideal Load Distribution

The flexible geometry allows designers to provide ideal load distribution along the truss.

  • Long Span Coverage

Trusses are ideal solution for long span applications and offer better weight ratio compared to traditional beams.

  • Strong load-bearing capacity

Trusses offer higher load bearing capacity with a better strength-to-weight ratio which makes them ideal solution for long span applications

  • Effective use of materials

Trusses offer lighter structures which allows an easier, faster and more securely fabrication and installation.
