Cold Formed Steel Trusses are a great alternative to metal connector plate wood trusses.  Recycled materials are used in the raw steel which helps in meeting LEED point criteria requirements.  Cold Formed Steel holds up well against fire especially when part of an approved assembly as specified by UL.  With Cold formed steel we can provide complicated roof geometries similar to metal plate connector wood roof trusses as well as compete against bar joist truss systems.  We can even provide a floor truss product comparable to that of metal plate connector wood floor trusses.
