Butler's Landmark 2000 structural system featuring Truss PurlinXT can form a framing system that spans up to 60 feet.

 

Butler Manufacturing

Butler's Landmark 2000 structural system featuring Truss PurlinXT can form a framing system that spans up to 60 feet. The structural system combines solid-web primary frames, factory-punched Truss PurlinXT secondary structural members and rod bracing to form a long-bay framing system. The system requires less bridging and fewer footings and columns. Chords are factory-punched for panel attachment and pre-marked for bridging locations. The structural system's bridging is mechanically attached, which eliminates the need for field welding. It is bundled in erection sequence and is ideal for commercial and industrial building applications that require large areas of open floor space.

ClarkDietrich Building Systems

ClarkDietrich Building Systems' Trakloc Steel Framing System is a light-gauge steel framing system for use in non-load-bearing interior partition walls. The Trakloc system has an International Code Council-Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) code-approved, stud-to-track connection where the telescoping stud twists and locks into the top and bottom track without the use of mechanical fasteners. This feature allows contractors to adjust the length accordingly for variances in the slab, thereby eliminating the task of measuring and cutting studs on-site. Trakloc steel framing members come in standard widths of 2 1/2, 3 5/8 and 6 inches.
