Texas Riding Arena, Steel Trusses on Wood Post

Texas riding arena, steel trusses on wood post

This riding arena is 72’ wide x 168’ long and involves steel girder trusses set on wood legs.  This gave the customer the head room required for safe riding and the look and feel they were after. The secondary framing is wood along with the complete end walls. A wood framed lean-to was added used as stables and tack room. U S steel Truss has also supplied several  50, 60’, 70’, 75’, 80’ and 90’ wide truss packages to be set on customer’s wood post used for multiple application. These truss systems are designed for the required snow load and the customer uses the engineered plans to design the required column size. We can also design the columns if needed.


Colorado Steel Truss Building

Featured Project:

Colorado trusses for 56 x 176 single slope green house building with lean-to (half truss) office area.

Designed to allow optimum sunlight with southern exposure, our customer needed a specific design for their production green house. The 56’ x 178’ single slope on a 3.5:12 roof pitch is their grow area with a 16’ lean-to for their offices. The property owner has now built 4 of these production greenhouses and continue to look for expansion opportunities. The all steel truss system was designed and manufactured for a 78 lb ground snow load and a 120 mph wind. These trusses are set on piers only and covered with a poly- carbonate translucent panel material.
