A truss system is a support system in the shape of a triangle and created by the configuration of steel or wooden beams. The roof truss system allows for the support of the roof using a simple system that can be easily designed and put together. One of the major advantages for architects when it comes to design is how simple the truss system is. Even though it is simple, the truss system is stronger than most beams because of the way that the system can distribute the pressure of weight evenly over the area. Since the roof truss system is so structurally strong it can be used over great distances. This means that a larger roof will be no problem for the truss system.
One of the easiest ways to add square footage to a building or simply make more open space is by raising the roof. Using a roof truss system for this situation will ensure that the roof is strong and that the structure will be able to hold the necessary weight. A roof truss system can also make it possible to remove or relocate load bearing walls or beams that are in the way of a design plan. This allows for better flow and more design options to open up a room. A roof truss system allows designers to open up spaces that are tight and take on an open concept plan for the building design.
