Metal Plate Connector Wood Floor Trusses are widely used in light commercial/multi-family construction. They are becoming more prevalent in single family home construction. Floor trusses allow greater access for plumbing, electrical, and HVAC access eliminating special engineered letters and repairs when standard floor joist members are modified for the same access. Rusk Component and Design provides full design and product for these floor systems in two parts.
- Full Design and project management for the wood floor with regards to trusses.
- Finished product through a sub-contractor that provides quality fabrication with Rusk Component and Design overseeing the fabrication process from raw material to delivery of finished product.
Residential trusses are provided with engineered designs, fully fabricated truss components, and required truss hardware as well as full customer service to to ensure efficient and accurate installation of the finished product.
Low Rise Commercial Floor Trusses are provided with the same products and services as the Residential trusses but, Rusk Component and Design goes one step further and provides additional installation materials. These materials include, but are not limited to, permanent web and chord bracing, strongback braces, truss blocking, and other items that are specific to a project. All these items are checked in design and can be backed up with structural calculations. This insures that the customer can concentrate on installation and not submitting paper proving that the additional materials are adequate by design.
