Our roof trusses are built in laser guided jigs to help insure tight fitting joints along with proper plate placement. This gives you the peace of mind of having a quality built product that will perform to its structural design. As you can see from the pictures, no job is too small or too large. Whether it’s commercial, residential or agricultural, if it can be done, we can do it.
Our Floor trusses are built to the same exacting standards as our roof trusses. Neither quality nor structural integrity is compromised when you receive our floor trusses. Floor trusses add a lot of flexibility to your project because they can be designed to be deeper in depth and have closer spacing. This allows longer clear spans and higher design loads.
Wall panels have been produced at Southern Truss since the early 1980’s. We feel the key to a satisfied customer is to have accurate take-offs/dimensions and good caring people producing a quality product. In recent years, wall panels have increased in popularity with the “green movement”; less waste in a factory environment creates less waste at the job site.
Laminated veneer lumber beams are used extensively in our roof and floor designs. They make it much more assuring to know that each beam will carry a given amount of weight. You are not “shooting in the dark” when beams are designed with LVL as opposed to nominal 2x lumber. We used the most updated software for beam design that works for your particular application.
Southern Truss has been using the I-joist product line since the late 1980s. It all started with a project outside of Chicago. The I-joist had to be customized to be used as roof rafters. I-joist is used primarily as a direct replacement for high-grade 2×10 and 2×12 floor joists. 100% of the tree is used in our manufacturing process making them eco-friendly. Like floor trusses, I-joists can be engineered and specified for exact design loads as well as increase span and locking capabilities. Southern Truss keeps a large inventory of 9-1/2″ and 11-7/8″ in stock. In most cases, we can provide delivery in 1-2 days.
Glu-Lams, although not a huge part of our business, are available in architectural grade as well as industrial grade. (Finish grade and slightly rough grade) Glu-Lams are normally used commercially (churches, banks, schools, etc.) but we have also supplied to the residential side of business.
Another piece of our complete package is our steel beam design program. Like all of our structural wood products, our steel beam sizing is done in-house with the latest computer software. There are times when space for depth or width is limited or the loads being applied to a beam are such that it is more practical to use a steel beam. Our in-house technicians can advise you as to the approach you should take, many times, saving you money or at the very least, providing a product for your project that works within your consistency.
Southern Truss has teamed with Simpson-Strong Tie to help us achieve the very best complete component design. Within our roof/floor designs, and especially in today’s market, there are many truss to truss, etc. connectors that require the use of special hangers or connectors. By attending educational seminars and using the best design programs, we can be confident that our total design package will be in your best interest and will perform for you long after the job is completed.
