RedBuilt's founders invented the innovative composite steel and engineered wood open-web truss over fifty years ago. Since its introduction in 1960, the open-web truss has become one of the most widely used engineered wood building products in commercial construction. Open-web trusses are lightweight, easy to install, and have nailable chords for easy attachment of roof decking and ceiling materials.
Pound for pound, RedBuilt Open-Web trusses are among the strongest structural members produced. They are the solution of choice for special projects with exceptionally long spans, as well as for typical, light commercial applications. Every open-web truss is custom manufactured to the precise specifications of the individual job to carry the load for which it was designed. The added versatility of numerous truss configurations — curved, pitched, scissored and barrel — creates opportunities for innovative, economical designs with more pleasing aesthetics.
