We assure precision; our roof trusses are custom manufactured for a perfect fit for your project. Our roof trusses are engineered with framer friendly layouts to provide a solution to any architecturally drawn design. This process, and our experience, allows us to engineer the most affordable and time saving roof trusses on the market. You can rest assured that you will get the strength and durability from an S.R. Sloan truss because they are built for optimal structural integrity.
Our floor trusses are of the highest quality, built for flexibility in design, in a quality controlled environment. You can expect every truss to arrive pre-engineered, customized to the exact specifications of your project. We can provide a trimmable end truss to allow up to 12” on each end to be trimmed in case the foundation you are working with isn’t perfect. The open webbed construction of a floor truss allows for utilities like wire, conduit, pipes, and ducts to be run through them with ease, cutting down on jobsite waste and an increase in the stability of the floor. Also they provide the ability to span a longer length, which means your project will use less beams, columns, footings and bearing walls, allowing for open concept designs for the space below – perfect for a finished basement in a residential application. In commercial applications floor trusses are strong enough to handle the 100 pound minimum live loads that are often called for and are the most economical choice.

Can trusses be modified at the job-site?
No, not without consulting S.R. Sloan first. Often minor modifications can be done but must be verified by our engineers before being made in the field.
**Do not cut, modify, drill through a truss without first consulting S.R. Sloan, Inc.**
How do I attach a piggyback truss to the base truss?
We will send you a detail with your sealed truss drawings or you can always refer to the information found on the www.alpeng.com website.
In the notes, on the top of your shop drawings, it says to reference sheet A10030020109, GBLLETIN0212, GABRST020109, etc., where do I find this information?
Please refer to the Knowledge tab in the menu of our website and/or the www.alpeng.com website for more information.
Can I get my order sooner than the current scheduled delivery date?
Quite often yes, first we will need to know when you actually need your order, then your order will need to be completely approved. Then we will do what we can to expedite your order.
What are your current production lead times?
Please refer to the scrolling banner at the bottom of this page for the most current lead times. But for a more exact answer, give us a call, we will need to know what exactly you planning to build, where it is going, and when you would need it by. We also need to know if this is an order already and if so, if it is approved or being approved shortly.
What is the approval process?
We require all orders to be reviewed and approved by the end user in writing. Often this is a simple process of verifying quantity, length, pitch, overhang, and loading. On more complicated projects, a complete review of individual designs and placement is required by all interested parties ie. Architect, engineer, contractor. This process is simply to ensure that the proper product is provided and to prevent mistakes from happening.
Cost Efficient Design Savings For A Better Quality Floor:
• At SR Sloan we customize each floor truss to meet the needs of your job. We take into consideration the required stiffness, depth and span. Using the latest technology we design your floor trusses for optimal performance, cost and installation efficiency all while minimizing waste. And in commercial applications, floor trusses are by far the most economical choice due to the load capacities they can be constructed for use in.
Time & Labor Cost Savings:
• Floor trusses are designed for quick installation which in turn saves you money that would be spent on labor costs for your project. No man power is needed to prep during the construction process for trade work for plumbing, ventilation ducts and conduits.
Strength & Flexibility:
• Floor trusses are perfect for open design floor plans giving you the ability to run longer spans, reducing the need for bearing walls, beams, or columns saving time and construction costs. Floor trusses allow you to create a more solid floor; minimizing the amount of shrinkage, warping or twisting which in turn will reduces the potential of callbacks to the jobsite for an unsatisfactory job.
