|The original Fold Flat Truss updated to include new hinging mechanisms to improve robustness.
The truss is typically fabricated using 2" x 3/16" wall main chords and fixed fork end connections for speed of assembly.
The truss measures 26 ½"; x 26 ½" when open, but closes down to only 6" for reduced transportation and storage volume.
Hinging V braces lock the truss in the open format and connected to brackets on the main chords using quarter turn Camloc fasteners with butterfly or hex head fittings.
The vertical hinging frames incorporate diagonals to provide torsional resistance to the truss.
The truss is designed in accordance with ANSI E1.2 standard to span 60 feet and carry over 3600 pounds of uniformly distributed static load.
