CFS Truss Systems

CFS Truss Systems

to take this course

Cold-formed steel is the material of choice for a variety of commercial construction projects. In this one-hour course, we will discuss truss design standards along with the benefits of using cold-formed steel truss systems in your design project, including an evaluation of bracing techniques. The characteristics of and efficiencies gained from cold-formed steel will also be reviewed. In addition, we will assess the design flexibility and various applications of using cold-formed steel truss systems.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Review the properties that make cold-formed steel a sustainable product
  2. Describe truss designs and restraint systems that meet safety standards
  3. Explain the value of using cold-formed steel truss systems with respect to design deficiencies, fabrication, and restraint systems
  4. Evaluate the characteristics and efficiencies inherent in using cold-formed steel truss systems
