engineering software operated by Superior Truss & Panel's engineering staff who quickly and accurately
design and bid your roof framing structure. Our engineers convert the architectural plans into
a completely designed and engineered roof structure including sealed engineered shop drawings for
all 50 states. Our bid typically includes the light gauge steel trusses and their complete
Structural Engineering Services:
Superior Truss & Panel can provide the following engineering services:
Design and engineering of a complete light gauge steel roof system including the following:
Light gauge steel trusses
Truss to bearing connections
Roof deck structural support at eave edge, valley, hip and ridge transition planes
Shear collection and transfer from deck through trusses into wall or bear structure below
Load bearing 'C' stud wall engineering to determine the size and gauge of materials required to carry the
wind, floors and roof structure design loads including:
Determine size, gauge and on center spacing
Horizontal in stud bracing with cold roll channel
Design of shear walls with 'X' bracing
Through floor anchorage of shear walls
Design of door and window headers
Wall Panelized Systems:
Panelizing of structural load bearing 'C' stud exterior and interior walls consists of prefabricated
door and window headers, king studs and shear wall bracing into sections with the track and studs that
makeup the panel. These panelized wall systems are most beneficial where repetition in types or
size of panels exist.
Our engineers convert the architectural plans into a panel layout plan including the creation of
individual panel and entire floor layout. Each individual panel will specify all appropriated
dimensions, size & gauge of materials, location of each stud, identification of all headers, bucks,
braces, connectors and bridging. Stamped engineered panel drawings include determination of structural
integrity of the wall.
Advantages of shop panelizing to the general contractor are:
Panel built in controlled environment
Panels can be built regardless of weather conditions
Exterior sheathing, plywood or EIFS finish systems can be factory applied
Panels can be made in advance of the project schedule date needed
Major advantage of shorten installation time enclosing the building quicker and with less field labor
