Pryda Trusses
Pryda Longreach Floor Trusses are designed and fabricated so they can be put into place as soon as they arrive on site. The trusses require very little work and can be walked on immediately, quickly building up the floor platform which can then be loaded with flooring or other building materials. Bracing the floor trusses is a simple task of slipping a timber member through the trusses and nailing off. Following trades can start installing services straight away. 

Pryda Longreach floor trusses that are 300mm deep are able to span up to 6 metres unsupported. This makes them ideal for use in second story extensions where they can span between existing walls to form a platform floor from which to build the second storey. The open web layout allows you to easily run new services through the new floor. The existing ceilings can be left in place with a new platform built over the top.

Pryda Floor Truss Systems are a complete structural system for timber floors made up of flooring material, floor trusses, strong-backs, connections and bracing. They have been proven over many years and provide occupiers with floors that have an excellent and predictably reliable performance.  The timber for these trusses is on flat, which provides a stable platform during installation and minimises the overall depth required. All trusses use commonly available timber and most floor trusses in Australia are made from 70 mm or 90 mm dry timber. 

Pryda Floor Truss Systems offer many benefits to the designer, the builder and the building owner in providing a reliable high performance system for both domestic and commercial construction. The use of the Pryda Floor Truss System results in a very cost effective, high quality product that is sufficiently flexible to accommodate the most complex of building requirements. 
Some of these benefits and advantages include:

Cost-Efficient Design
Each floor truss is customised for the job, including required stiffness, depth, timber grades and span. It will be computer designed for optimal performance and cost and installation efficiency while minimising waste.

Significant Design Improvement with Minimal Cost Increases
Span capacity and stiffness can be significantly enhanced by simply increasing the depth of the Pryda Longreach
floor truss. Due to the timber web design of the floor trusses, the increase in depth is at a minimal cost.

Greater Design Flexibility
Extra long spans and large cantilevers can be provided, with the ability to support high loads. Spans up to 7.1 metres at 400mm depth using MGP12 pine can be achieved. This results in the following design and cost benefits: The long spans can potentially eliminate the need for some interior support walls and beams, giving more scope to architects and designers thus reducing the cost of the support structure.  Large spans within restricted height applications can be achieved. In some cases the use of floor trusses may eliminate the need to use costly steel beams.Ideal for sloping blocks. In some instances floor trusses could be used to eliminate or reduce the excavation costs associated with sloping blocks.

Set-down or Recess Sections
The ability to design and manufacture set down sections into the floor trusses provides significant labour savings in the following situations: In cantilever and balcony areas where the provision of adequate flashing and accommodation of different floor covering material thicknesses is critical.Bathrooms, toilets and other wet areas may also require the floor surface to be set-down. This will provide significant labour savings when other trades start installing bathroom fixtures, fittings and tiling.

No Cutting, Drilling or Notching
The open webs allow easy fixing of electrical, plumbing, ducts and energy services. There is no need for drilling or notching, saving time on site.


Quick Installation
A large selection of end support types for quick and easy installation. Pryda floor trusses arrive on site manufactured to size and ready to install, eliminating the need to trim on site. There is no material or labour wastage. Pryda floor trusses are designed and manufactured with end types for fast, secure fixing to steel, concrete, masonry or timber.
