A light gauge steel truss offers the architect, engineer, contractor and owner all the flexibility and design advantages of wood trusses, plus the versatility and safety of an ECO-FRIENDLY alternative material. Light Gauge Steel Trusses provide a pitched roof alternative to the flat roofs normally supplied by bar joist and pan steel construction as seen on commercial buildings. Light gauge also eliminates the use of fire treated lumber which is a chemically treated version of regular lumber.
Light gauge truss used for schools, assisted living facilities, military facilities, fire department and warehouses. They are quickly becoming a more viable choice in residential building as well, due to the safety factors and piece of mind associated with the use of a steel truss.
PermaStructures factory in Opa Locka, Florida, is pleased to offer this alternative choice in trusses. As a direct fabricator, our engineered steel trusses are manufactured under quality-controlled conditions and are a cost effective solution to steel framing.
Steel trusses have been used in commercial building construction for a long time. In the past 10 years, there has been an increase of their use in the building of residential structures. There are several reasons for this. Steel Trusses do not require trees to be cut down to make the studs, and the price of steel does not fluctuate as much as the price of wood. They provide a greener alternative to using natural resources such as wood.
Steel is non-combustible which makes it much more likely to resist devastating events such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires.
Using steel trusses for construction requires no “wet work,” which makes the construction process much faster as only the simplest assembly is required. In addition, steel construction materials are 100% recyclable.
