RedBuilt Floor Trusses and Roof Trusses

RedBuilt trusses:
Built for freedom

In the late 1950’s, RedBuilt’s founders invented an innovative composite steel and engineered wood open-web truss. Since then, this design solution for architects and engineers has evolved to support large floor areas and large roof spaces of up to and over 100-feet wide.

Every open-web truss is custom manufactured to the precise specifications of the individual project and designed to support the loads. A local technical sales representative is assigned to your project to help align product solutions with working drawings. That contact also assists with system design analysis, budget pricing, building system integration, detailed specification writing and architectural design configurations.
