This end type is the most common one used for supporting an upper wall frame directly above a bottom chord bearing, particularly with steel sections or wall plate. It is sometimes used to connect frame brackets together as well.
While it bears some similarity to the previous end type, it gives lateral stability through timber end bracing trimmers. Furthermore, it facilitates variations to the site as it permits the curtailing of setbacks.
Makes it easier to install timber end bracing trimmers. At the same time, it provides support to an upper loadbearing wall frame. It further holds up end of sheet flooring and serves as an extra bottom plate.
Keeps the floor level past the top flange, while accommodating bottom chord bearing along the lowest flange of a universal beam or a steel channel.
This end type is incredibly flexible and it is made up of a solid block insert that is held to the top and bottom chords by nails. This creates an I-beam that receives support through the bottom chord.
This end type is flexible as well, made from a solid nailed block that gets its support from the bottom chord. Creating an I-beam, it is able to be cut back at an angle, which accommodates steel sections or can be used to work with low roof settings. This Type 5 comes with a full end block designed to support a loadbearing wall on the upper story, specifically one that is set some distance back from where the lower storey would be placed
This end type is quite flexible and is made to work with lower roof conditions and steel sections when cut at an angle. It is made up of a solid block that has been nailed into both the top and the bottom chords, creating what is known as an I-beam. This type of end block can cantilever over walls on the lower story while supporting the load bearing walls on the upper storey.
This bears the bottom chord and it is able to take on high loads that come from the upper storey loadbearing walls.
This bears the bottom chord and can handle upper storey loadbearing walls and their high loads. An added feature of the Type 6 is that it gives additional timber nailing space when it is used to support the trusses that make up a Pryda joist hanger.
Provides upper chord support for waling plates, wall frames and for floor beams. It is very easy to install. When installing, however, it is advisable to restrain the bottom chord.
Easy to install and supports the top chords on floor beams, waling plates and wall frames. For best results, it is advisable to restrain the bottom chord.
Can support higher loads due to the floor trusses it uses and is similar to End Type 7 in a lot of ways. Unlike Type 7, however, the supporting member does not determine the level of the truss.
Provides support for the floor trusses through the top chord; at the same time, it houses the truss’s supporting beam. Furthermore, it offers support for continuous ceiling lines that run underneath trusses.
Anytime there is a short internal cantilever that runs along a stair opening, this end type is ideal.
Helps to maintain the ceiling and floor levels when they are flush along both the bottom and top flanges. It also provides support for universal beams and steel channels.
Offers support for both universal beams and steel channels, keeping the floor level higher than the upper flange. At the same time, it keeps the bottom chord flush against the lowest flange.
All end configurations for floor trusses are able to work with both Pryda Span and Longreach roof trusses. They can also work with box gutters, but that gutter’s dimensions may have some restrictions. However, all truss depths are compatible with this option.
All truss depths can be made to fit a box gutter, though that box gutter may have some restrictions placed on its dimensions. All of the configurations covered here work with the Pryda Span roof trusses as well as the Longreach roof trusses.
