National Building Systems provides heavy timber trusses from Western Woodwright, our fabricator located in Boise, Idaho.
Heavy timber trusses are manufactured with glue-laminated or solid-sawn lumber chords and webs connected together with bolted steel plates. Depending on the desired architectural appearance, the connections can be either exposed or hidden.
Heavy-timber trusses are typically used in municipal and institutional buildings, churches and custom homes. Any project that desires an open ceiling showcasing impressive wood structural components is a good candidate for heavy-timber trusses.
