Hybrid metal building open web rafter system
Nucor Building Systems (NBS), a leading manufacturer of custom-engineered metal building systems, has announced the expansion of their framing system product line to include Nucor TrussFrame, a hybrid metal building open web rafter system.
Nucor TrussFrame combines the stability of a rigid frame system with the convenience and architectural aesthetic of open web trusses, creating a system that provides maximum design flexibility with unobstructed, column-free interior space in excess of 250 feet.
“NBS is excited to provide a quality open web solution that will greatly benefit our Builders and the customers they serve,” said Jeff Carmean, Nucor Building Systems President. “TrussFrame is a unique open web rafter product providing a spacious interior aesthetic that will allow our Builders to expand their capabilities to better serve new markets. This is a superior framing option that is extremely efficient and economical, and will solve numerous building challenges.”
Unlike solid web framing systems, TrussFrame allows HVAC systems, electrical wiring, and sprinkler systems to be incorporated into the open trusses. This feature can reduce the required building height and increase overall efficiency. Available in both gable and single slope Clearspan framing, the system is compatible with all Nucor Roof Systems. TrussFrame is well-suited for a range of building end-uses including recycling and waste, retail, manufacturing plants, recreational facilities, aircraft hangers, warehouses, arenas and stadiums.

Single-Ram and II-Ram High-Capacity Balers
At Machinex, we've been designing sorting systems for over 35 years, so we know how essential it is for MRF operators to have a baler they can trust and not worry about its operational reliability. This is why we design and manufacture reliable single-ram and II-ram high-capacity balers to specifically help optimize their operations.
Watch the video of our expert who presents the main features of Machinex balers delivering these important benefits:
- Easy & accessible maintenance
- Reduced maintenance & bale handling costs
- Energy savings
- Optimal bale density
For C&D recyclers, waste haulers, demolition contractors and landfills, there is a growing opportunity to profit from rethinking processes. Although every operation is different, by streamlining the front end of the C&D operation processes with purpose-built technologies, recyclers can tap into new end markets, accommodate higher material volumes, stay ahead of regulatory restrictions, increase recovery rates and add commodity revenue, while decreasing labor and other costs.
