Heartland Truss Inc. floor truss systems are setting the new standard for both builders and home owners by allowing greater design flexibility and larger span capabilities.  

K e y  B e n e f i t s

  • Greater clear span allows total flexibility in home design that conventional framing can not achieve.
  • Open-web construction allows routing of plumbing, electrical, and HVAC components without having to build fir downs.
  • Installation is fast precise.
  • 3-1/2'' wide gluing and nailing surface virtually eliminates squeeks in the floor system.
  • Trusses are preciselt engineered and manufactured to carry all applied loads.
  • Dimensionally consistent.  Kiln dried lumber prevents shrinkage.

F l o o r  T r u s s  B a s i c s

Depending on the desired depth (height) and spacing, floor trusses may clear-span rooms of 30 feet or more.  The ability to top chord bear over a beam in mid-span allows very large basement rooms with unbroken ceilings.
