Subject: Lt Ga Metal Trusses


Hello,

Is there any information available for writing a specification for Lt Ga
Metal
Trusses?  We have our first school involving them and are planning on using
the
same philosophy as for wood trusses.  Provide a specification and have a
specialist in these things design them.  Any critical issues I need to worry
about?

On a related issue.  I don't think welding anything thinner than 16 ga.is
practical so that is the min ga I am planning on using.  However, how would
metal
deck be attached to the trusses?  Using TEK screws or welded same as to bar
joists?

Thanks,

Mike
