TrusSteel Trusses


TrusSteel trusses are made from 100 percent US Prime steel, with 30.9 percent post-consumer recycled content and 11 percent pre-Consumer recycled content. Local Authorized Fabricators build TrusSteel trusses so they are typically a regional product that reduces transportation costs and fuel.
