Build it fast… Build it to last…

To mantain a competitive edge you have to build it fast, build it to last and build it for less. That’s why designers, specifiers, fabricatos and builders’ merchants are turning to Floortrus for solutions to these demands and more. When compared to traditional beam construction, the manufactured timber FloorTrus system is better, stronger, and can be installed faster. FloorTrus is popular because of its ability to clear-span wide areas without the need for load bearing walls or post and beam requirements.

The custom designed FloorTrus system reduces the amount of “bounce” that may be found in conventional framed floor joist systems. This premium floor solution provides improvements in dynamic loading so it – “Feels like a firmer floor.” Joist shrinkage and twisting which cause cracked ceilings and squeaky floors are a thing of the past. Precision controlled manufacturing techniques give you consistently even floors and ceilings.

Build it fast – Once the trusses are on the site, the builder can really start to see the benefits. The consistent size and height of the manufatcured FloorTrus will mean easier subfloor material installation, and the open web design allows for the utilities to be run in between the floor system without drilling or cutting holes. These benefits will reduce the amount of time trade contractors spend on site, speed up construction, and ultimately save the builder money.

Build it to last – The most robust open web floor system on the market. Use it Once and no other floor system will ever feel the same again.

Features & Benefits:

PREMIUM GRADE ROBUST FLOOR
Improved dynamic loads and lower sound transmission. Timber construction is more robust in transport than metal web systems and is less prone to damage on site.

OPEN WEB DESIGN
Fast and simple installation of services, without drillin or cutting holes.

LONGER SPANS
Greater design flexibility in locating bearing walls and
partitions. FloorTrus offers high strength and rigidity over long clear spans – in
excess of 8 meters achievable.

REDUCED WASTAGE
Bespoke design eliminates site alterations. FloorTrus also saves timber resources by reducing the amount of waste timber generated during construction.

BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
No glues used in manufacture. Off-cuts from roof truss manufacture can be used for webs. No wastage as with solid I Joists. Less metal than open web designs incorporating steel struts due to Alpine’s new wave plate design. All timber design ensures no cold bridging when incorporating FloorTrus in roof or wall designs. Much lower carbon footprints than concrete beam floors.

WIDER SPACING
Fewer beams are required and reduces the need for intermediate load-bearing walls and partitions.

WIDE NAILING SURFACE
Subfloor and ceiling application simpler and quicker.

FLEXIBILITY
Now available TrimTrus with trimmable ends – the instant open web floor solution. 300mm trimmable ends allow bearing location errors to be fixed instantly on site.

SAVE MONEY
Trades work faster on site and the necessity for using intermediate load bearing walls is reduced.

ENGINEERED
FloorTrus is manufactured off site ensuring consistent quality and reliability. ITW Alpine’s design software ensures FloorTrus can be designed to an enormous number of specifications.

Span & Depths

Huge flexibility in design and rigidity give FloorTrus unrivalled span and depth capabilities.

Feature rooms, commercial applications and terraced developments without load bearing partitions are all possible.

FloorTrus beams can be designed to any depth from 219mm up. Commercial air handling systems can be run through the floor, as FloorTrus can be designed with a large chase unlike metal web alternatives.

Floors can be designed to known hanger depths to speed up installation altough most hanger manufacturers will make special hangers if required.

Below is a list of beam depths (in mm) with readily available hangers:

219 mm (typical span 4500mm +)
241 mm (typical span 4700mm +)
254 mm (typical span 5000mm +)
304 mm (typical span 5600mm +)
319 mm (typical span 5700mm +)
