A truss is a triangulated structure used as a supportive framework in all types of buildings. The triangular design of a truss provides it with structural stability which makes useful for applications including bridges, houses, and commercial buildings. Malfunctions can cause trusses to collapse or sections to break while workers are standing on them. Breaking of the truss can result from a number of factors, including improper assembly, defective components, or sub standard wood grades.
