Engineered Systems Solutions
Engineered Trusses for Farm, Residential and Commercial Applications
You can count on our expertise to supply the right engineered solution for your building needs, including engineered roof systems, engineered floor systems, pallets and crates, and stairs to meet your specifications.
ENGINEERED ROOF SYSTEMS
Roof trusses are versatile, cost-effective and convenient. They determine the shape of the roof and ceiling while providing support for the roof. Trusses are pre-engineered in our factory using lightweight materials and are shipped to the construction site. Roof trusses put pressure on the outside structure of the building instead of the inside bearing walls, enabling greater design freedom.
Trusses are made up of three main parts:
- Top chords
- Bottom chords (also known as I-joists or ceiling joists)
Working with an architect or engineer is one of the best ways to ensure you use the right trusses for your project to meet your building code requirements.
ENGINEERED FLOOR SYSTEMS
Engineered Floor Trusses
We offer trusses, LVLs and I-joists for your flooring projects. Engineered floor trusses are an assembly of top and bottom chords separated by diagonal braces. Floor trusses are used when you need a higher load-bearing capacity compared to simple floor joists. LVL (laminated veneer lumber) is considered to be a highly reliable building material that provides many of the same attributes associated with large-sized timbers. Because it is compatible with I-joist floor framing, residential builders and building designers like the combination of I-joist and LVL when it comes to their engineered floor assemblies.
Floor Joist & Rim Joist
We carry Pinkwood joists. They use proprietary grade flanges and come in six series with residential joist depths of 9-1/2” to 16”, and commercial joists depths of 18” to 24”. In addition, they are shipped with a pink moisture sealer to protect the joists against moisture-related end-checking and moisture absorption. Our joists can handle all your I-joist needs.
Brand We Carry
Stairs are an essential part of a building project. Our engineers at Prairie Truss can design a custom set of stairs for your next project or renovation.
We offer the following engineered stairs options to meet the needs of our customers.
Stringers: we can build either open or closed
Risers: we can build either open or closed
Run and Rise: we can customize
PALLETS & CRATES
We build many styles of pallet construction, for example, Block Pallets, 2-way Stringer Pallets, 4-way Stringer Pallets, etc.
