Floor trusses

Supplier:
Pryda

Pryda floor truss joists are custom designed as a complete structural system made up of flooring material, floor truss joists, strong-backs, connections and bracing. They have been proven over many years and provide occupiers with floors that have an excellent and predictable reliable performance.

The timber for these trusses is on flat, which provides a stable platform during installation and minimizes the overall depth required. All trusses use commonly available timber and most floor trusses in Australia are made from 70 mm or 90 mm dry timber.

There are two different types of web systems for these trusses. Both have timber chords but Pryda Longreach uses all-timber webs, while Pryda Span uses metal webs for the diagonals and timber webs for the verticals.

Both systems of Pryda floor trusses are custom designed and manufactured by licensed fabricators to achieve optimal performance efficiency and lowest material and installation cost.

Pryda floor truss systems have many advantages that result in a lower net installed cost compared to other available systems. In some instances there may be a material cost increase by using Pryda floor trusses. However when it comes to installing the product Pryda floor trusses can provide significant labour savings. In addition, floor trusses have some considerable design advantages that could result in reducing the need for a large amount of costly structural support construction. E.g. Long spans may reduce the need for internal load bearing walls.

The design and installation benefits are as follows:

Design benfits

  • Designed to order.
    Stiffness required, depth, timber grades and sizes can be varied to suit any individual job requirements. Computer designed for optimal performance efficiency and lowest material cost.
  • Design versitility.
    The long span capacity - up to 8 metres plus offers functional design freedom and can eliminate the need for interior support walls and beams.
  • Larger spans at low cost.
    With all-timber trusses (pryda longreach) the span capacity increases significantly as the truss depth increases - at little extra cost.
  • Limited space.
    Designs can accommodate large spans in restricted height applications.
  • Depths to suit.
    Wide range of standard depths available from 200 to 450 mm.
  • Wide range of end supports.
    Standard end support types suit structural connections to steel, concrete, masonry or timber.
  • Extra stiffness in floors.
    Established dynamic limits to ensure rigidity and to overcome springiness and bounce. Designed to provide a floor that feels and acts “rock-solid”.
  • Accommodates large ducts.
    Large rectangular ducts to 500 mm wide can fit within the standard design and special duct routing within rows of trusses can be incorporated.
  • Commercial applications.
    Suitable for light commercial applications including offices, schools, hospitals and function areas.
  • Assured performance.
    Used by designers and builders for over 15 years with outstanding results.

Construction benefits

  • Easy to install.
    Truss end support connections are pre-manufactured to fit. No cutting or notching will minimise the possibility of mistakes and time on site.
  • Ease of access.
    Flexible ducting, electrical wiring and electronic data cabling can be easily run between the truss webs.
  • No cutting holes.
    Simplifies the work of following trades. Plumbing, ventilation ducts and conduits can be simply attached to the webs or chords without any cutting or drilling holes.
  • Stable platform during construction.
    The wide chord flanges are more stable for tradesmen moving around the elevated areas on a job.
  • Lightweight.
    Trusses are much lighter than solid timber sections. Much easier to handle and lift on site.
  • Floor set down feature.
    A section of longreach floor trusses can be manufactured with a reduced depth to accommodate tiled wet areas and other floor coverings in bathrooms and on balconies.
  • Consistent depth.
    Longreach floor trusses can be manufactured to the same depth for the entire project to eliminate uneven ceiling levels at little extra cost - regardless of the variations in spans.
  • Robust construction.
    More robust than other prefabricated systems, and more able to resist the effects of mishandling. Pryda span metal web design has a patented deep v profile incorporating stiffeners for improved performance and resistance to damage during handling on site.
