By designing truncated trusses and using extended top chords with a hinge plate joint, very high trusses can be easily manufactured in standard truss jigs. Once manufactured top chords can be bent to reduce the overall height and assist with the transport and installation of very high trusses.
This is particularly useful for large span trusses and trusses with high pitches such as attic trusses.
- HingePlate provides a flexible connection to assist with the manufacture of very high trusses that cannot be produced on existing pressing equipment.
- Eliminates over width problems when transporting.
- Avoids the costly and time consuming alternative of producing ‘piggy-back’ trusses.
