Unique Chord Sections The symmetrical shape of the TrusSteel patented U-shaped chord sections provides nearly equal chord member moment capacity in both in-plane directions. The TrusSteel chord members have superior bending strength in out-of-plane directions. These characteristics combine to create an efficient truss that is exceptionally strong and stiff. Multiple Web Sections TrusSteel combines its patented roll-formed webs along with fully welded rectangular tube webs, both in various sizes and steel thicknesses, to attain strength and suitability simultaneously. These symmetrical shapes contribute to the stiffness and stability of each truss which reduces bracing by eliminating torsional buckling. Patented Fasteners TrusSteel revolutionized the CFS truss industry with the introduction of Double-Shearâ„¢ fastener technology. This patented technology provides a rigid, bolt-like connection at all chord/web intersections and is specifically designed to resist movement and back- out. In addition to strength, the color-coded fasteners deliver a dependable and easily inspected connection. Structural Connections TrusSteel manufactures a comprehensive line of truss-to-truss and truss-to-bearing connectors, which provide consistent quality and ease of field installation. The industry's most extensive library of Standard Details, which describes our connections, capacities and section properties, is available in various CAD formats via TrusSteel Provides Peak Performance The innovative TrusSteel Cold-Formed Steel Truss System offers proven, reliable and economical solutions for virtually every roof or floor application. It delivers strength and stiffness, highly efficient transfer of structural loads and greater stability for easier handling and installation. That's why it's the most accepted and specified cold-formed steel truss system available. Today, as a member of ITW's North American Construction Group, Alpine TrusSteel is building upon its firm foundation of experience and stability by continuously delivering new products and services to the marketplace. TrusSteel embraces it's role as the industry leader in engineering, software development and metal forming technology. These leadership qualities have led to more TrusSteel trusses being installed each year than any other proprietary CFS truss system. TrusSteel provides ongoing leadership to the cold-formed steel truss industry through active participation in key organizations such as the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute and the American Iron and Steel Institute. TrusSteel is also actively involved with the International Code Council, Underwriters Laboratories and the U.S. Green Building Council. TrusSteel's state-of-the-art roll-forming facility in Pontotoc, Mississippi opened in 2014.
